Announcing the new Buchla Easel Command & 208C

Buchla Easel Command at a glance

The Easel Command aka 208C from Buchla is the revised version of the famous Music Easel from the same house. Typical for Buchla and the resulting Westcoast philosophy is the sound and control concept; a different one than most other analog synthesizers. The basic sound is formed with the Complex Oscillator and the Modulation Oscillator together. With this combination, very bass-heavy, but also very overtone-rich sounds are possible; these are always just one knob movement away from subtle to extreme FM and AM sounds. The generated spectrum is processed with the dual Lowpass Gate (LPG). The LPGs are mixable in level and lead to a reverb effect as the last link in the audio chain. In addition to a three-stage envelope (attack, sustain & release), there is a pulser for modulating the sounds, a random generator, a sequencer that plays up to five steps and of course numerous control voltage inputs and outputs.

The new 208

The Easel Command is housed in a "LEM Powered 3 Boat" case and impresses with some innovations. The layout is now clearer and more structured and the color scheme used has been adapted. If no cable is plugged into the preamp, a white noise is fed into the signal path. Also, the pulser is now manually switchable and the oscillator frequencies are now better scaled. Control via MIDI/USB has been integrated, so the sequencer can be included and aftertouch is converted in addition to pitch and note length. The circuit board has also been reworked, making it more service-friendly and providing a new power connector. The Easel Command can be removed from its case and mounted in a larger Buchla case together with other modules of the 200 series.
