Totally interested. Full build would be amazing. Even just including a front panel, boat and parts with the pcbs would be so incredible. Can't wait.

I'd be interested in a set of PCBs, and if a panel is done, one of those as well.

If anyone wants one built for them...

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies -- good to see there's some solid interest; that makes the chance of it really happening a lot bigger.

From my experiences with my twin-Easel BOB - both live and in the studio - you'd be surprised how much more powerful the [already powerful] Easel becomes... and that's even without the extra [Expander] modules.. Well, I have the Comparators and a VC Panner on the twin-Easel, but that panner design (vactrol based) proved to be too noisy ~ the new panner is a lot better, and is based on CLee's hi-end design.
It's especially the Comparators which open up the Easel. I once hooked up & synchronised my whole studio to the Easel -- Aemit modular, Oberheim modular, Eurorack system & 16-panel Serge, and that was just... awesome. Though, admittedly, clocking the Easel from external trigger sources isn't always obvious, because of its internal trigger-source routing; but it can be done.

In other good news: our most trusted Buchla-boat-builder-outside-of-Bemi, mr. Boops himself, has commited to help me out on boat & panel building, if all things go forward as planned. :nana:

The features from the extra modules from the 416 Expander - Panner, LFO, Slew & Comparators - are pretty much set in stone, but the CV-Processor is a new addition (top-middle section)... Suggestions for that space more than welcome !

This is a complex project, and I'm doing my best to get things produced as soon as possible, but there's still a ton of work to do, so please be patient. It's much appreciated.

You said the expander board is optional.
Just as information, are you also planning a panel for the interface only?
