U–he’s Bazille is a complex synth capable of an astonishing variety of sounds. Bazille is Urs Heckman’s latest creation and a part of U–he’s ongoing ‘Berlin Modular’ experiment. This stemmed from fond memories of a Roland System 100M and bore early fruit in the powerful ACE (Any Cable Everywhere) soft synth. Taking a different tack to other modulars, Bazille is equipped with four digital oscillators that dispense Yamaha–inspired FM alongside Casio–style PD (Phase Distortion). These souped–up technologies from the ’80s are accompanied by the intriguingly named FR (Fractal Resonance) and the architecture features no fewer than four multi-mode filters, two LFOs, two ramp generators, four envelope generators, a step sequencer and a host of, often multi–functional, utility modules. Unlike some virtual modulars, Bazille has a finite number of each component, all fixed in position. Those with a smattering of German will opt for the pronunciation ‘batzilla’, while others might not have progressed beyond ‘Ba–siiil’, as bawled by Sybil Fawlty.
