Meeblip triode

   0 reviews  -  1232 views

    MeeBlip triode is part analog, part digital, capable of producing a range of uniquely aggressive, bass-heavy sounds.

    triode's huge sound is driven by three oscillators and a unique twin-t analog lowpass filter. Two digital pulse / pwm / sawtooth oscillators can be detuned and a square wave sub-oscillator adds to the bottom end. For sonic variety, triode also offers hands-on access to 24 grungy wavetables, along with dual envelopes routed to oscillator amplitude and filter cutoff for powerful filter sweeps and effects.

    Three powerful oscillators

    Detune triode's dual digital oscillators for huge sounds. Activate the pure digital sub-oscillator for more bass. Enable PWM sweep to add shimmer.

    Wavetable mode

    triode includes a hidden wavetable mode with 24 aggressive digital textures for sonic variety.

    Analog filter

    Our aggressive Twin-T analog filter is unlike anything you've heard. It can be warm and sweet when you want it to be, or crank it up for over-the-top resonance and distortion.

    Extended controls

    Get hands on and tweak your sounds from the front panel. If you want more control, hidden parameters like envelope and filter attack, Pulse width and envelope modulation are available using MIDI CC.

    Full MIDI control

    triode offers full MIDI control, including real-time tweaking of parameters using MIDI CC. Perfect for live performance or as part of a sequencer-based rig.

    Independently made

    MeeBlip triode is a project of James Grahame (blipsonic) and Peter Kirn (CDM / createdigitalmusic.com). It's independently designed and manufactured, then hand-assembled and tested in Calgary, Canada before making its way to you.

    Free and open

    The MeeBlip project is fully open source hardware. It's ready to play, no assembly or hacking required. But if you do want to learn how it works or modify it, you're free to do so. Circuits and code are all available via GitHub, and are covered by a permissive Creative Commons and GPLv3 license. That means MeeBlip is an electronic instrument that gives you complete freedom for the future.
