MeeBlip (for sale)


This is an open source hardware and software synth. Its also called "The Hackable Digital Synth" on the front panel. In its plastic housing of 17 x 12.5 x 6.5 cm (incl. knobs) you will find a little synth with all major synth parameters available. But no patch storage in the original version. Version 2 introduced patch memory and changed the layout.

On the back there are connectors for: This synth was sold as a DIY kit with fully assembled boards and all needed parts by a little Canadian company called Reflex Audio from Calgary. I bought mine for 172.94 US$ including shipping to Germany.
