Dude, where’s my Bastl mini mixer?

New portable mixer will really tie the room together

Bastl Instruments has dropped Dude, a new mini mixer that’s designed to be used with its diminutive Kastle synth - and any other portable production tool for that matter.

The battery-operated, five-channel audio mixer is decked out with mini jack inputs and output. 

With a firm eye on performance, each channel has a dedicated mute button and up to +20dB gain to boost weak signals and saturate line-level signals. 

Even though it’s monophonic, Dude will still be able to drive your headphones, so you should find it perfectly suitable for small setups, portable rigs and live performances.

  • 5 channel monophonic mixer
  • up to +20dB (10x) gain knob for each channel
  • dedicated mute button switch per channel (not click less)
  • dual mono output for driving headphones
  • powered by 4x AA battery or external adaptor 9-12VDC


The Dude is available now for €75 and you’ll find more information on the Bastl Instruments website and buy direct on Noise Kitchen.
