I’m not claiming that either, sure, we have our own preferences.
The Buchla is based around a specific design philosophy, and it is suited to a particular type of music making, but not exclusively, I like all the things about it that a lot of people wouldn’t, illogical layout, which encourages new approaches every time you use it, reverse controls, also inspires experimentation, the lack of a "typical" signal path, and modules, the "five step" sequencer, the spring reverb that acts like a low-pass filter, the "sound" which is very rich, and can be unpredictable. It’s major strength for me is how it responds to feedback, and it is, truly unique in this respect, really beautiful.
The Easel is different from the Easel Command Module, they are built differently and have a slightly different sound, for various reasons.
