ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BASTL PIZZA // Elevate your Eurorack patching with advanced hybrid synthesis

Here we have PIZZA! Everyone loves PIZZA right? Is pineapple on PIZZA fine? Leave a comment and let the flame wars begin! Joking aside this is PIZZA from BASTL Instruments a hybrid FM and waveshaping oscillator that packs in a lot of interesting sonic options and lots of clever CV assignment for working with the module as an advanced oscillator or even a full synthesis voice.

As always this demo is about pushing this with musical and creative ideas to advance our patches and exploring synthesis. Try out these patches with your gear and leave a comment letting me know how you get on.

Part of this video was filmed while full of a cold/flu bug. Filmed as the fever subsided but still with a viral party in my mouth, so apologies for the weird (weirder than usual) accent in places.

Patreon supporters have access to an exclusive and extended run down of the PIZZA DRUM KIT patch, which turns this oscillator into a whole drum kit with kick, snare, bassline and hi hat sounds.
