Marc Doty (Automatic Gainsay) has posted a series of in-depth videos on the Buchla Easel Command.
The Buchla Easel Command is the newly updated 208C in a standalone desktop form with MIDI and CV control. The 208C is the module itself for use in a Buchla 200e system.
Buchla says that their own Joel Davel led the charge to create a new version of the legendary Music Easel instrument with more modular flexibility and independence, while also providing the means to easily interface with more devices, such as the various DAWs like Ableton and MIDI controllers, including the very expressive Sensel Morph. They tell us that it's still fully analog in its default configuration and provides the unique and exquisite Buchla experience with greater functionality at a lower cost.
Pricing and Availability:
EASEL COMMAND (208C with case & MIDI): $2,999
Buchla 208C (4U Module Only): $2,599
