There are certain Bastl Instruments devices that just look intriguing from the first moment you set eyes on them – and it would appear that Peter Edwards (AKA Casper Electronics) has had a hand in many of them!
We have just restocked the insane DARK MATTER feedbacking mixer/distortion/mangler module…and decided to dip our toes into Bastl’s standalone instrument range – kicking off with the SOFTPOP and BITRANGER:
- SOFTPOP – A playfully organic, semi-modular light & sound synthesizer which can produce a wide variety of sounds: from random dripping water pops to heavy subtractive basslines. Its fully-analog core – consisting of a heavily feedbacked system of dual triangle-core oscillators, state variable filter and sample and hold – is played through an intuitive interface of 6 faders. It can also process external audio thru the filter while using the envelope follower to synchronise to the incoming signal.
- BITRANGER – This is a patchable analog logic computer which sculpts sonic worlds ranging from data noise to melodic arpeggios. Extensive connectivity makes it so flexible that it can connect to almost anything: CV control its unique sound, sync it with drum machines and sequencers or use it as an algorithmic CV / GATE pattern generator.
AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE
We have also added a ton of other Eurorack modules to our Bastl Instruments range – more on that soon! …but have a fish about and see if anything takes your fancy 🙂
