Description : The “NEW”, rethought by Buchla Easel, is one of the most original ever created and best sounding all-in-one analog synthesizers. From this video of the guide, recorded by renowned Buchla expert Todd Barton, you will learn what this amazing tool is capable of.
Don Bukla, a pioneer of electronic musical instruments, created this original synthesizer in 1973. It was the very first all-in-one West Coast style synthesizer with pre-created patches! Fast forward 40 years, and now it is the “NEW” Easel. It retained its basic analog roots, but when paired with its iProgram card, the iPad app and the new 218e keyboard, it became one of the best sounding and fun instruments.
In this course, Buchla’s expert Todd Barton explores every aspect of the Easel synthesizer from its unique sound generation to its powerful controls, sequences, and programming. In fact, Todd created the very first video guide to Easel. Todd is an internationally recognized expert and performer on the Buchla synthesizer, and he works very closely in the development of patches and product documentation with Buchla Electronic Musical Instruments (BEMI).
If you have Easel or are thinking of acquiring it … or even if you are just interested in modular synthesis, this course is for you! So, in this very in-depth course of Todd Burton, everything about the modules 208 and 218e of which the Buchla Easel synthesizer is composed, is described.
