Superbooth 2017: softPop Synth From Casper Electronics, Bastl Instruments
In this video from Superbooth 2017, provided by the fantastic coverage from Sonic State, we get introduced to the new softPop Synth from Peter Edwards on behalf of Casper Electronics and Bastl Instruments. From its beefy resonance filter to its massive patchbay, this is definitely one synth to look out for.
softPop is a playfully organic, semi-modular light and sound synthesizer with wide variety of sounds: from random dripping water pops to heavy subtractive basslines.
- fully analog core and signal path
- 6 faders for controlling two oscillators and filter and their cross modulations
- two wide range triangle-core oscillators 0 & 1
- quantiser for oscillator 0 (auto-tuner)
- oscillator 1 has variable waveshape via the moduation setting
- ∞ resonant state variable filter (bandpass, lowpass, highpass)
- external input with gain and envelope follower for intuitive sync of oscillator 1
- track & hold circuit for stepped modulations
- looping pattern generator with two patterns A and B
- RGB led for psychodelic experience
- 25 point patchbay
- secret hack chamber at the back for adventurers
- built in speaker
- carrying handle
The softPop Synth is expected to be available for €300 or less in the next few weeks, and you can visit the softPop product page to learn more about what the robust little synth has to offer.
