Here at KMR Audio we're exceptionally pleased to be able to offer Buchla and the incredibly prestigious product range both online and on Demo in our London showroom.

 

The most recognisable synthesizer which Buchla is responsible for is the original portable music box, the Music Easel. A self-contained, patchable additive synthesizer that symbolises the very core of what Buchla synthesizers are so well known for. Originally released in 1974, the Easel's design has remained wholly unchanged since it's original release, albeit there's now a wide range of expansion, presets and auxiliary card available to enhance the sonics of the Easel architecture.

 

Buchlas modules are iconic in their own right. Re-released in 2004, the E series is a unique modular format that allows for presets and information to be send and received via the system power bus. Modules like the 259E, the 261E and the 292 have been replicated in various formats over the years, but none of them quite capture the magic and sonic bliss that you find in a real Buchla module.

 

Since their re-release, the E series modules are now available in various formats of preassembled system, with the Skylab being the most complete and sonically complex system offered by Buchla USA, though offer pre-configured systems are available upon request, and we're also able to assemble systems to your specification

 

As the UK's main Buchla Dealer, we can offer expert advice and information, whether you're looking to build a system or understand what on earth that 223e actually does then get in touch with our synthesizer expert Tom Lewis.
