Ever wanted to build your own synthesizer? We can fulfill your dreams already on Friday and offer you an opportunity to make one of your very own Bastl Instruments Kastle 1.5.

Bastl Instruments is a synth maker based in Brno (CZ). Bastl have been helping makers develop communities around electronic sound and music since 2013. The workshop will last around 5-6 hours. This very special workshop has a limited capacity so be quick!

The Bastl Kastle is a mini modular synthesizer you can play anywhere. It’s powered by just 3 AA batteries or a regular micro USB charger, and it offers a headphone output and 2 in/out ports for interfacing other gear, be it a keyboard, a groove box, or a Eurorack synth. The Kastle 1.5 has a unique digital lo-fi sound, and it can be melodic, rhythmic, as well as very noisy and droning, soft or harsh. It was designed to be fun on its own, but it thrives the most in an ecosystem of other modular gear.

The device is DIY-friendly and ideal for beginners in synthesis, but it will also add unique functionality to any full-sized modular synthesizer system. It delivers the fun of modular at a low cost, and it fits into your pocket so you can play it anywhere.
