There were a lot of BASTL Instruments bitRangerâ€™s in the wild at Noise Kitchen Synth Fest 2016, in Bastlâ€™s hometown of Brno, Czech Republic. Here's two awesome videos from the synth show.
Starting us off at Noise Kitchen Synth Fest, The Tuesday Night Machines, gives an excellent 5 minute demo of what’s possible with the new Bastl Instruments bitRanger modular and standalone synthesizer.
This is an excellent video and well worth watching if you’re interested in Bastl’s bitRanger.
Our friends at Synth Anatomy shot this 3 minute overview video showing what was on display in Brno at Synth Kitchen. You’ll spot the Soulsby, plenty of synth modules and of course a few Bastl Instruments bitRangers in action.
