MeeBlip has introduced a new synth, Geode, that promises to let you get your hands dirty, with hands-on control of ‘edgy, cutting, grimy sounds’.
Here’s what creators Peter Kirn (CDM) & James Grahame have to say about it:
One control per function really means one control per function: no shift, no nonsense, no presets – just reach out and turn knobs. And geode brings back all of the greatest hits of the award-winning MeeBlip line in a single instrument, for the first time. Sequence or play however you like, with DIN and USB MIDI. geode is all about getting straight to the sound – every switch, every knob.
- Shape your sound with envelope (attack, decay, sustain) and glide
- Choose from a range of independent, digitally generated waveforms on two oscillators: PWM, pulse, sawtooth, and triangle (osc A) or noise (osc B).
- Mix A + B oscillators, or choose one or the other (so you can focus on noise for percussion or single-oscillator acid)
- Sub octave and detune
- The unique analog MeeBlip filter, based on a 70s guitar distortion circuit
- Modulation routable to filter and pitch, for subtle effects or cranked for chaotic warbles and FM-style sounds
- Complete MIDI implementation: use with USB, with iOS (via Apple adapter, not included), or hardware DIN / standalone
- Dual mono minijack output for easy monitoring with headphones or connection to other gear
- MIDI DIN input for connecting MIDI hardware
- USB for MIDI input, connecting to a computer
- Driver-free operation on macOS, Windows, Linux, iOS*, Android
- USB powered
- 1m USB cable included
