Bazille: Monster from the deep.

Bazille is our monster modular synthesizer. Flexible, powerful with incredible sound. A blank canvas to explore your creative ideas. Connect modules together however you like: explore, experiment and play. Build sounds from the gargantuan to the ethereal. Such flexibility invites exploration—and you will quickly discover how powerful and deep Bazille is.

Sights and sounds

Digital modular synthesis

Bazille is a large modular system combining digital oscillators with analogue-style filters and modelled effects, with a flexibility that only modular patching can provide.

After ACE, the second spawn of our ongoing Berlin Modular project, this one is a very different, much larger beast…

Those in the know have been waiting for this since 2009. Read Urs’ own story.
