MeeBlip Anode Eurorack module

MeeBlip-Anode-Eurorack-module

This video, via Ninstrument, is a sneak preview of a custom MeeBlip Anode synthesizer, in Eurorack format:

The MeeBlip Anode, created by James Grahame and Peter Kirn, is cheap, open source and pretty bad ass sounding.

Here’s what Ninstrument has to say about the MeeBlip Anode:

Had a chance to check out the MeeBlip Anode and I must say it’s nice to have an envelope built into a bass module. It makes managing the patch a little easier and a lot more wiggle fun. 20 HP wide and all metal pot shafts makes this a well built module.

You can find out more about the standard version of the synth is available at the MeeBlip site. No details are available on the Euro version yet, but it’s a customized Anode, not an official MeeBlip release.

  1. I don’t get it. sounds like the worst of vsts. why would you put this in your rack?

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 17
  2. Whether this makes it into a rack version or not, this was a particular poor demo. It feels like modular synthesizer designers/manufacturers seem to be incapable of making demos that actually inspire.

    Tuneless arpeggios, dissonant drones, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwn… While these examples doubtless show the full range of tones that can be coaxed from units like this they don’t make me want to buy.

    Missed opportunities.

    • This isn’t a manufacturer demo, it’s a custom build by someone. Pretty awesome actually.

    • A lot of modular users seem to enjoy spending hours noodling around somewhere between noise and music. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that–the sounds you get out of a modular are delightful. But, yeah, I wouldn’t buy this based on this presentation.

      What would YOUR amazing, purchase-inspiring demo show?

      Serious question.

  3. My advice after 2 years or euroracks and over $6000 spent
    1 buy eurorack
    2 buy more eurorack
    3 = profit

    only a few modules stand out
    the market seems to be full of used units that are less than 1 year old
    unless you got DEEP Pockets and money to burn
    stay away from eurorack

    the lights compel you to buy

    • on the other side if you really want to build a custom sound
      and you really like the flashing lights :)

      1 you can buy tones of used modules for less than i spent in my first year

      2 it is still way cheaper than buying vintage analog gear

      3 eurorack is not for everyone

      4 i regret nothing

    • 1) Do DIY only projects
      2) Build 2 or more of everything
      3) Sell the modules to people who can’t / won’t solder
      4) Profit!

      The best projects are the ones that come with only PCB + panel. PCB only are tought, I never get arond to making the panels I’ve found.

  4. There is no doubt that modules can soon add up in cost and get very expensive, but there’s an immediacy and whole load of fun to be had. I’ve had a good play, but don’t actually own any yet, but plan to at some point.

    When I eventually take the plunge it will be for some very specific modules that I have spent a long time researching and erm… lusting after :-D

    In the mean time there are several software modular systems that provide a really good environment to practice in and get a good idea if it really is for you or not.This is particularly true on iOS, Audulus, Modular etc… so you don’t need to fork out huge swathes of cash to experiment.

    Having said that, I’m all for folks buying these things if they have loads of cash to spare… just let me know when you’re bored and I’ll buy them from you heheh ;-)
