MeeBlip Geode is a new super-compact and capable monosynth
Not much bigger than a Guitar stompbox, the MeeBlip Geode is a unique new compact monosynth
The intuitive little powerhouse that is the MeeBlip Geode is designed around a knob-per-function layout, making it incredibly easy for first-time synth users to pick up. It also makes it a great hands-on sound design tool, as there’s no menu-diving and complicated shift-functions to wade through. At its heart, the MeeBlip Geode has three digital oscillators, two main oscillators with a variety of waveforms and a sub oscillator with detune. Oscillator A has PWM, Pulse, Sawtooth and Triangle shapes while Oscillator B swaps the Triangle for a noise generator.
The MeeBlip Geode was designed with a particularly “grimy” sound in mind, the internal filter is based on Guitar distortion pedal circuits making it rather unique. There’s a built in LFO with assignable output for oscillator pitch and filter cutoff, and control over the rate and depth parameters, giving you variety to create subtle movement or crazy FM-style modulation. There’s an envelope with Attack, Decay and Sustain and an internal Glide function. This deceptively simple monosynth should be capable of everything from warbly dubstep bass sounds to acid lead lines.
Integration with a laptop or other MIDI compatible hardware?
The MeeBlip Geode is USB bus-powered and features complete MIDI integration via USB and hardware MIDI DIN. Its class-compliant, meaning driver-free operation in Windows, MacOS and Linux. The synth is also designed to work with iOS and Android (although the relevant adapter would need to be purchased), making it a fantastic portable synth powerhouse.
The MeeBlip Geode is launching at the end of May 2019, its set to retail at USD $179,95 (Around R2600 excl. duties), however they’re offering a pre-order special. For USD $149,95 (Around R2150 excl. duties) you can secure yours from the first batch.
