Hey Ross,
Where did you get the 4k price tag from?
I need to know how much gear I have to sell so I can get one of these ASAP!

$4k seems like a brillaint price. This will sell really well at that price. ANy higher and you loose customers.

That's less than a Minimoog Voyager XL. I think I know what my next major gear purchase is going to be.

Crikey. I'll save heaping on more hyperbole until I see more details and a maybe few demoes, but this may do much to ease my grief over my low number in the Synthi queue.

All I wanted when I got into modulars was a little suitcase synth for meditative twiddling in my spare time. My wall of modules was a complete accident. :lol:

If the 4k pricetag is true I predict an influx of cheap Euro in B/S/T :hihi:

I would like to know what the actual constituent modules are. Hard to be sure from the pics.
Same as original Easel or different/modified?

i heard "between $3k-$4k" which i immediately interpreted at $3999... so it's $4 cheaper than a thought!

looking forward to owning one.

^ ha, yes, good time to by secondhand synth gear I think.

price is much less than I was expecting, I wasn't even getting excited as i thought it would be way too spend to consider.

If it is $4k then the problem is no longer the price but the waiting list.

I almost hope that price isn't right, cause it was easier to dismiss when I thought it was well out of my range :goo:

How do the programming cards work? I'm fairly ignorant of Buchla stuff, so if there's a standard answer I'd be happy with just a link.

Is it me or do the touchates look love size of full keys. I think the original had plates about 3/4 size.

I wonder if they/someone will republish the Allen Strange book on the Music Easel; it would be great to be able to buy a good clear copy of that book.
