Dude, where’s my Bastl mini mixer?

Bastl Instruments has dropped Dude, a new mini mixer that’s designed to be used with its diminutive Kastle synth (opens in new tab) - 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 (opens in new tab)and buy direct on Noise Kitchen (opens in new tab).

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
