Arturia Buchla Easel V

The Buchla Easel V from Arturia recreates the idiosyncratic sounds of its namesake while equipping users with some exciting new twists. With the cooperation of Buchla Electronic Musical Instruments, Arturia has modeled the Music Easel to make the plugin as faithful to its ancestor as possible. Additions include polyphony, new modulation sources, a powerful step sequencer, an effects section, and more. Harness the sounds of the legendary synthesizer for a fraction of the cost. Recreate the sounds of Charles Cohen, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Todd Barton, Alessandro Cortini, and more with this spot-on recreation of the peculiar West Cost masterpiece that is the Music Easel.
