To aid professionals and music enthusiasts, Buchla developed Bucha Easel V, an environment where they can find an iconic Don Buchla instrument to use and create or edit music tracks.
The whole installation package can be set up with ease by any computer user and it shouldn't take you too long. When you enter the program, you are welcomed by an innovative GUI that has the shape and look of a DJ mixing tool, along with many options and effects. Though it looks cool, apart from the default view, there are no visual customizations for you to play with. Also, a thing to keep in mind - the program requires a powerful computer system, otherwise you'll often experience menu delays.

Bucha Easel V integrates more than 300 presets from various international experts, and it also comes with dual Low Pass gates, lots of effects and a syncronizable pulser and clock.

Professionals can use the Left hand modulation sources to create envelopes and LFOs and add randomness and smoothing to the modulation. Moreover, it includes a Gravity XY modulation source so you can control the sound with the movement of a projectile.

Overall, Buchla Easel V is an impressive tool to use to generate crisp and clear sounds from a modern environment. Its price, however, will most likely look expensive to many users.
