4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 4 years' warranty and 60 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Compact Analog Synthesizer

The Bastl Instruments SoftPop is a compact and robust analog synthesizer and noise experimentation machine. The SoftPop features dual VCOs and VCF, with VCOs utilising two wide range triangle-cores and the VCF providing bandpass, lowpass and highpass settings for optimal flexibility. The SoftPop is ideal for a range of sound design applications, from experimentation to creating new sounds for use in music productions and everything in-between. The fully analog core and signal path ensures that classic warmth and grit normally associated with vintage synthesizers. It features 6 faders in total, designed for controlling the VCOs and VCF as well as their cross modulations. There is also a quantizer for VCO 0, which acts as an auto-tuner. You can achieve everything from sound FX to powerful and gritty basslines.

Sample & Hold Circuit/Looping Pattern Generator

One of the most unique features of the SoftPop Analog Synth is the track & hold circuit, which allows you to achieve stepped modulations. This is ideal for creating patterns and rhythms in conjunction with external synths/sequencers. In addition to this circuit, this synth also boasts a looping pattern generator with two patterns: P1 and P2. This is ideal for create loops on the fly, with ease. This breathes new life into your sounds, creating movement within your tones for added flare and overtones. The rear of the unit also features a secret hack chamber for modding the synthesizer.

Built-In Speaker & Patchbay

The comprehensive control section comes complete with a 25-point patchbay, providing a wide range of connection options. The mini integrated patchbay includes 3 jacks labelled A, B and C, which you can use to send signal in our out of the patch bay. The most convenient feature of the SoftPop is the integrated speaker, which eliminates the need for external speakers. It also adds to the unit’s portability, allowing you get setup and making sounds anywhere you go. The SoftPop can also process external audio through the filter, whilst using the envelope follower to synchronise the incoming signal for added versatility.

Rugged Construction

The highly compact design makes the SynthPop highly portable, great for live performance and use on the road. Its ultra-rugged aluminium casing, utilises laser engraving for the clean and sleek finish. The side of the case features wheels for changing the volume and external volume of the synths. The front of the case features fine-tuning and feedback wheels for added modulation control. The ergonomic layout features a psychedelic-style red LED light, designed for indication of a range of parameters including the pattern generator and more. The potentiometers and faders are constructed from high-quality materials designed for optimal durability and longevity. It can also run via a DC plug, USB power or 4 x AA batteries for added flexibility.
