The new Buchla Easel has taken a while to come to fruition but its now in production and will be available to purchase real soon, says Marc Doty.

Extra functions have been added while keeping with the Buchla tradition. The case is now more suitcase shaped, but includes the Music Box Input Output module and made it more accessible. They added mixer, slew generator, voltage control, CV and gate and USB connections too.

We also looked at the Program Manager which allows for some recall of presets with a screen for preset names.

The 218 keyboard is also updated, better grounding, clean power for better control, a new strip with CV output for additional control, pulse output, reset button to set the capacitance.

All in all its a more powerful instrument, without a significant change in price.

Release date and price TBC. (around $4k)
