Buchla legend Todd Barton gave us the lowdown on the new Buchla iPatch, which plugs into the memory card slot devized by Don Buchla 40 years ago. It digitally stores the CV values and can hold 10 memories. It also ahas a wifi access point which lets you hook up the editor and transfer your patches from an iPad library.

Todd Barton showed us around - he's a total Easel expert check his video here

At present the card cannot store the other way round - eg the current fader, patch chords and switch values from the physical synth.

Available in a couple of months at around $599.

programmable presets on an analogue synth? who'd have thought!

the mystique of buchla/"west coast" is stretched a little thin at this point.

$599 to be able to save 10 patches.... Hmm. Am I missing something here?

It's for the twelve people who actually own an Easel

Seems to me that with a small adaptor box they could just have the iPad hook directly to the synth and transfer the patches that way.

It also seems like they are most of the way there to having an. Easel iPad app that people could afford to buy. I love the Easel, but if you look at how much modular gear you could get for the same money...
