Just landed! New Bastl Instruments SOFTPOP 2 standalone semi-modular experimental synth, sequencer & sound processor

Bastl Instruments Matttech Modular 24.03.22

Although we initially started stocking Bastl Instruments for their range of intriguing Eurorack modules, we couldn’t overlook their eccentric standalone units for long, and the KASTLE Synth and MICROGRANNY Granular Sampler have become firm favourites with our customers.

New from the Bastl stable is the updated SOFTPOP 2 – which adds so much that it’s an understatement to call it a “sequel” really. SP2 is the culmination of a near decade-long creative partnership between Casper Electronics and Bastl Instruments and brings together the strengths and quirky design stylings of lead engineers Peter Edwards and Václav Peloušek. The designers feel it’s their best work to date and a product of pure passion for innovative synthesis, music-making, and experimentation.

It is a radical subtractive synth under the influence of unconventional digital control. SP2’s favorite sounds include bassline bangers, angelic chord progressions, distorted beats, and water droplets. Softpop also has an external input with enough gain and saturation to process any sound thru the filter and VCA. Add to that a powerful & flexible sequencer, MIDI control and a huuuuuge Eurorack-compatible patchbay and you’re good to go… Check the product page or Loopop’s excellent video below for the full scoop…
