Bastl Instruments has introduced the Kastle, which they describe as a pocket size modular synthesizer that runs on batteries and produces unique modulations and lo-fi sounds. A spokesperson told us, "It is a lot of fun on its own but it also interfaces smoothly with other gear and greatly enhances modular system of any size. With its low price point it is perfect for anyone especially beginners."
The Synth version combines complex oscillator and LFO with stepped waveform generator.
