Poly Effects has announced that Beebo – a modular synth in an effects pedal – is now available.
Beebo is a multi modulation hardware pedal that they say ‘gives you the power of a Eurorack modular synth in an easy to use touch screen pedal’.
Beebo features conventional effects, auto swell, delay, algorithmic reverb, chorus, looping delay, mono & stereo EQ, mono & stereo compressor, pan, phaser, reverse, rotary, saturator, phaser, warmth and through zero flanger. It also features ports of popular open source modules, like Mutable Instrument’s Clouds and Plaits modules.
You can make the foot switches change a value, or connect up parameters to a random source, an LFO or an envelope follower. Modules that generate control signals can be controlled too, which is the power of a modular workflow.
For example, If you don’t get everything you want out of the built in chorus or flanger modules you can build your own by adding a few delay modules and modulating them. You can also send control signals out as MIDI CC to control other pedals.
