BUCHLA EASEL V is a recreation of Don Buchla's left field analog synth from 1973, the Music Easel changed the way people created sounds with performance-focused parameters, putting the focus on the artistry of being a recording artist. Perfect for exploring alternative sound design, creating ambient, widescreen textures, and unfamiliar sequences. Taking Buchla's experimental vision one step further, Arturia have incorporated Gravity, a physics-based synth engine into their software recreation, letting you take your music where no one has gone before.

This synth is amazing. It looks complex, but in reality it is quite simple. Make sure you go through the tutorial in the synth itself. It's great for creating those modular, weird sounds.

It is obviously a typo with a missing "1" when Arturia made the KVR page.

All the "V" products are at €149 or €199, depending on the model. Except the Piano V which is at €249.

In the "V" collection, there is none under €149.
