Bastl Kastle – Possibly The Smallest Modular Synth Ever!

Bastl, the small team of synth enthusiasts from Brno, Czech republic, did it again…
Their new product, Kastle, is a pocket size modular synthesizer that runs on batteries and produces unique modulations and lo-fi sounds. Kastl is great on its own but it also plays nice with with other gear and greatly enhances modular systems of any size. With its ridiculously low price point ($65 or $79, DYI Kit or assembled) it is perfect for anyone – especially beginners!
