Peter Kirn of Create Digital Music and engineer James Grahame have announced the Meeblip Triode – a ‘small, dirty & deep’ synth module that has been updated to be a better bass synthesizer.
They note that the ‘MeeBlip anode was already capable of producing ridiculous bass sounds. So with triode, we challenged ourselves to make things even more extreme.”
The open source/open hardware synth is a digital/analog hybrid design, with digital wavetable oscillators feeding into an analog filter.
Here’s what’s new with the Meeblip Triode:
- New sub oscillator
- Red color
- 8 additional custom wavetables, for 28 in total
- Improved envelopes
- Front-panel glide
- MIDI control of analog filter resonance
- Analog filter – Twin-T analog filter goes from ‘sweet’ to distorted
- Three oscillators – dual digital oscillators plus digital sub-oscillator
- Wavetable mode 0- triode includes a hidden wavetable mode with 24 ‘aggressive’ waves
- MIDI support – triode offers full MIDI control, including real-time tweaking of parameters using MIDI CC. Hidden parameters like envelope and filter attack, Pulse width and envelope modulation are available using MIDI CC.
- Open source – MeeBlip triode is open source hardware. You can check out the schematics, read through the code and make changes. Extended controls
