The Buchla Easel will be back in 2013
The Buchla team was at NAMM to introduce a reissue of the famous Easel analog synth, which should be available this spring.
The Easel reissue, or Electric Music Box, will be an almost accurate reproduction of the analog synth produced in the 1970's, and sold below the price point of US $4000.
The synth is based on the original circuit, but also includes a Range switch for the modulation oscillator, and some additional features for the touch keyboard. Some components had to be replaced for they were not available anymore, but Buchla ensures that it will not affect the original sound and use of Easel.
Also included is the programming card, like in the first versions, and expansions cards are also expected in the future.
