Bleep Labs has released the Bleep Drum – a $60 DIY drum machine kit.
The Bleep Drum is an Arduino based ‘lo-fi rad-fi drum machine’, designed by Dr. Bleep. It’s designed to be a standalone device, but has a step input for the sequencer and individual trigger inputs available on the board.
Here’s a demo of the Bleep Drum in action:
- Four sounds, two with pitch control
- Four selectable sequences
- Record patterns just by playing them
- Tap tempo
- Reverse mode
- Hyper Noise 30XX mode
- Stereo 1/8″ output
Bleep Labs also has plans to sell the Bleep Drum pre-built. See the Bleep Labs site for details.
