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. Continue reading →
Stones Throw, Dam-Funk and Bleep Labs have introduced the Dam Drum 2 – a handheld drum machine & sequencer.
Dam-Drum is a collaboration with Dam and Bleep Labs, who designed and built the drum in Austin, Texas.
Version 2.0 features four new drum sounds – three based on the Roland R70 and a pitchable bass tone modeled after a Juno 106 – with new buttons and a matte circuit board.
Like the Dam-Drum version 1, released summer 2012, this version is handmade and limited edition. ??Includes a case and function controls instruction sheet. Requires a 9 volt battery (not included). Continue reading →
Bleep Labs has introduced the new Hard Soft Synth 3jb, a audio + video synthesizer.
The HSS3jb features 15 modes of audio/video excellence, each with 4-5 variables of control. There are also 8 video only modes designed for use with the trigger and audio inputs. An adjustable analog filter keeps everything smooth (or as gnarly as you’d like).
Bleep Labs has announced the PAL198X Synthesizer, a synth designed and sold in conjunction with Neon Indian.
The limited edition mini analog synthesizer is based on the Bleep Labs Pico Paso, with a few modifications, designed by Dr. Bleep and Alan Palomo of Neon Indian.
The biggest addition are swappable controls which allow you to attach the included potentiometers or photocells (or a number of other devices we’ll post about later) in any configuration to the three oscillators to create all kinds of triangle wave chaos.
Two triangle wave oscillators which can be activated independently or together, modulating each other.
Square LFO which affects the amplitude of both triangle oscillators.
Screw terminals allow any resistive device to control the pitch of the three oscillators.
9v battery powered.
The PAL198X synth is available in the limited edition Era Extraña package from Neon Indian.
