The Buchla Easel Command is a result of the further development of the legendary analog synthesizer Music Easel by Don Buchla from 1973, which in addition to the synthesizer module also consists of a controller/keyboard module – both built into a suitcase. While the Music Easel also continues to be built, the Easel Command is the revised version of the 208C in a stand-alone desktop form with MIDI, USB and CV control. This updated version now features a MIDI input, can be equipped with a USB host port, has a 1V/Oct and Gate input, and generally presents itself in a way that makes it easy to integrate into any studio or live environment. It’s never been easier to own a Buchla and integrate it into your personal workflow.
Although it can be described as a mono synthesizer, it’s much more than that, it includes a limited but matching sequencer that invites you to experiment, as well as a real spring reverb, and truly feels like an instrument that can keep delivering new sounds and generally invites you to play. It’s hard to describe, but the device quickly draws you in, simply because it sounds exceptional and offers a well-developed workflow. Without further words, enjoy the video.
And for more information about the Music Easel, please have a look at the SchneidersLaden Workshop videos (in german) with Jessica Kert and Carsten Rochow, who share their experiences and enthusiasm about this instrument.
