Buchla Eye

The Buchla Easel is an Amazing Synth

Don Buchla was a pioneer electronic engineer who designed one of the most amazing synthesizers, the Buchla Easel (and others including some with Bob Moog).

He lived just over the hill from me, and I was here when he was in his heyday. He also lived in New Jersey but lived most of his life in the SF Bay Area. He started out in electronics as a Ham Radio Operator, another thing we have in common. I wish I could have met him, but in using the Arturia Collection V8 with its Buchla Easel soft synth, I get to experience the sounds this wonderful thing can make.

This song uses a very cool Buchla Easel patch and I dedicate this song to Mr. Buchla.
