Paint with Sound

Arturia's Buchla Easel V is the first plug-in re-creation of Don Buchla’s iconic synthesizer that helped define experimental West Coast modular synthesis in the early 1970s. Arturia's software enhancements to the original synth architecture give you greatly expanded possibilities for sound design and progressive music. They will make you think differently about sound right from the get-go; the soundscapes you can conjure with it are completely unique — and so is the user interface. To put the Buchla experience at your fingertips, Arturia painstakingly modeled the rare 1973 Buchla Music Easel right down to the component level. As with other V-series plug-ins, Arturia went the extra mile with an enhanced feature set that includes polyphony (the original was a monosynth), new cutting-edge modulation and control sources, a step sequencer, onboard effects, and more. At Sweetwater, the Buchla Easel is considered a holy grail of West Coast synthesis. Now it's yours for a song.
