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!
Kastle Synth combines complex oscillator and LFO with stepped waveform generator.
- mini patchbay with 16 different patch points

- pitch control with offset and CV input with attenuator

- stepped voltage generator with random, 8 step and 16 step loop mode
- 2 I/O CV ports are available and can be routed to any patch point
