At Superbooth 2024, Sonic State had the opportunity to talk to Nick from Buchla about the new Music Easel Retro. This new offering from Buchla is a blend of the classic Music Easel and the 50th-anniversary edition, designed to appeal to fans of the old school style briefcase enclosure. Priced at 5,000 US Street, the Music Easel Retro features an aluminum suitcase design and retro Rogan knobs, providing a nostalgic yet modern experience. With improvements such as USB-C, 5-pin MIDI over 3.5-millimeter jack, and enhancements from over 50 years of history, the Music Easel Retro offers a unique blend of past and present technology.

During the interview, Nick demonstrated the capabilities of the Music Easel Retro, showcasing a repeating ostinato and complex oscillator sounds. With features like sequential voltages in four-step mode and pitch modulation inputs, the Music Easel Retro offers a versatile and dynamic sound palette. Nick also utilized the Maris LVX stereo delay pedal and internal spring reverb to further enhance the sonic possibilities.
