If you’ve been considering getting a Meeblip SE synthesizer – the updated version of the hackable, open source monophonic synth – now might be a good time do it.
The developers are offering Synthtopia readers $20 off the $149.95 price of the new ‘retro edition’ Meeblip SE. To get the discount, enter the word ‘synthtopia’ as the Discount Code when you check out at their site.
If you’re not familiar with the Meeblip SE, its an open-hardware synth, created by engineer James Grahame and Create Digital Music’s Peter Kirn.
Here’s an audio demo of the Meeblip SE in action:
- Monophonic virtual analog synth. Just add a keyboard (or other MIDI input) and play.
- 32 user-programmable patch memories.
- Eight knobs and sixteen slide switches, for hands-on control with the immediacy of a classic monosynth.
- Tasty digital synth sounds.
- Use it as-is, or use the source code to remap controls or redefine the instrument’s architecture and control assignments.
- 8-bit digital brain; full 16-bit sound.
- MIDI input with MIDI CC control of all parameters.
- 4-pole active low-pass / high-pass antialising filter.
- Open source hardware.
