We thought the Bastl Instruments BitRanger was small. Apparently Bastl like synthesizers to become even smaller. The new Kastle synth will fit in your pocket with some room to spare. It's about the same width as a Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator, but aprox. half the height. Granted it's thicker... but it certainly is tiny!
Kastle looks to be a great entry synth for beginners and anyone looking to create unique lo-fi sounds with its "complex oscillator and LFO stepped waveforem generator". Plus it plays nice with other synths, comes in DIY kit or pre-assembled, and has a crazy low price.
But don't take our word for it. Here's what Bastl Instrumens have told us about their intruiging new mini modular synthesizer:
We are proud to introduce the Kastle ! Pocket size modular synthesizer that runs on batteries and produces unique modulations and lo-fi sounds. It is a lot of fun on its own but it also interfaces smoothly with other gear and greatly enhances modular system of any size. With its low price point it is perfect for anyone especially beginners!
The Synth version combines complex oscillator and LFO with stepped waveform generator.
