Bastl Instruments have a wide range of interesting & unique Eurorack modules …but they also deal in quirky standalone units, often with their own onboard patchbays for further experimentation. While we usually focus on modules, we do occasionally venture into standalone units if they are sufficiently intriguing – and these certainly fit the bill!
Currently we have the following in stock (and more will follow soon): THYME, SOFTPOP, BITRANGER and KLIK
AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE!!!
- THYME – An effects processor that is best described as a sequence-able robot operated digital tape machine. With a lot of parameters at hand it enables the exploration of all the time based effects and the vast space in between their classical multi-effects categories (delay, phaser, reverb, chorus, pitch shifter, multi-tap delay, tape delay, tremolo, vibrato, compressor) and in stereo!
- SOFTPOP – A playfully organic, semi-modular light and sound synthesizer designed by Peter Edwards a.k.a. Casper Electronics. It 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 that provide countless combinations which can be explored by anyone. It can also process external audio thru the filter while using the envelope follower to intuitively synchronise to the incoming signal.
- BITRANGER – A patchable analog logic computer which sculpts sonic worlds ranging from data noise to melodic arpeggios. While being a handheld standalone synth it is also right at home in the music studio. 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.
- KLICK – A synchronisation device that enables you to make analog, rock solid sync signals from your computer and your HW synths. The KLIK revives the old-school sync technique of using an audio track for synchronisation purposes. Record your synths exactly on the grid into your DAW while compensating for the latency of your sound card. Jam really tight between your computer and your HW and add groove to your clock.
