Saturday Synth Porn: Buchla Tech Mark Verbos shared this photo of a 1973 Buchla Music Easel:
The Music Easel is the street name for the combination of the Buchla 208 and 218 touchplate keyboard.
I was recently called upon to repair the prototype unit, built in 1973. This unit was resurrected in 1987 and had since been in a basement, used from time to time without ever being moved.
More photos at Verbos’s site, along with the story of how he brought this vintage synth back to life.
