Buchla Music Easel V


Published on Apr 2, 2020 CatSynth TV

"A detailed look at the Buchla Easel V, a recreation by Arturia of the original Buchla Music Easel. We introduce its connection to so-called 'West Coast Synthesis', explore several factory presets, and walk through the synthesizer functions and sound design.

01:22 Introduction to the Buchla Music Easel V
02:10 Factory Presets
05:23 Sound design with the basic Music Easel features (LPGs, oscillators, and CV sources)
17:11 Using the advanced features designed by Arturia (complex modulation, FX engine)

'The Buchla Easel V faithfully reproduces Buchla’s Music Easel that helped define West Coast synthesis’ focus on experimentation and breaking musical norms. We’ve applied our award-winning TAE™ modeling technology from the front panel to the resistors to capture it all with incredible realism.

Complex oscillator design, AM and FM synthesis, uniquely percussive gate/filter combos, and numerous ways to modulate and clock just about every parameter, all drop you right in the middle of a sonic sandbox. Design and perform soundscapes that burble, shimmer, pulse and evolve without ever touching a keyboard or pad—unless you want to add even more control.'"
