This detailed demo video for the Bastl Instruments Kastle explores the basics of this mini-modular synth, its sonic capabilities with emphasis on the modulation and sound sections.

Is it me, or are synthesizers getting smaller and smaller? We reported on the new Bastl Instruments Kastle in early October. Since then, it's making its way into the hands of synthesists across the world... and Bastl have decided to create a rather excellent 9-minute overview video showing how to use it and how to make different synth sounds.

As well as exploring its modulation and sound sections, Vaclav from Bastl shows how to make it work with eurorack synths and the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators.
