Diego Stocco releases FFS // Convoluted Anode Bonus

Diego Stocco has introduced FFS // Convoluted Anode Bonus, a free collection of impulse responses based on sounds made with the MeeBlip Anode, a synthesizer by James Grahame and Peter Kirn.

FFS // Convoluted Anode Bonus

“FFS // Convoluted Anode Bonus” is a mini set of 15 Impulse Responses specifically designed for the processing of beats and percussive instruments. You can download it for free or “pay what you want”.

I created them for the rhythmic convolution processing you can hear in my track “Convoluted Anode”: https://soundcloud.com/diegostocco/convoluted-anode-diego-stocco

If you’re interested in this processing technique, check out “FFS // Rhythmic Convolutions“, a set of 200 impulse responses made from organic sources and materials.

Create Digital Music launches MeeBlip, hackable digital synthesizer

MeeBlip

Create Digital Music has introduced the MeeBlip, a digital MIDI mono synthesizer designed by James Grahame of Reflex Audio and Retro Thing.

It’s designed to be affordable, hackable, and most of all, playable. It’s an open source hardware instrument, but it isn’t just for hackers. You can unpack it, do some very basic assembly of the complete kit, and be making sounds from a MIDI keyboard or other controller within minutes.

And if you are interested in hacking it, from simple modifications to reprogramming the sound, we’ll be putting up lots of resources that help you learn how to do that. That said, the reason we’re excited to have our own MeeBlips is simple: we have fun playing them.

MeeBlip features

  • Out of the box, a monophonic virtual analog synth.
  • Eight user-definable knobs and sixteen slide switches, for hands-on control with the immediacy of a classic monosynth.
  • Tasty digital synth sounds.
  • Use it as-is, or use the source code to remap controls or completely redefine the instrument’s architecture.
  • Available ready for simple, solder-free assembly with a case, or as a kit, all on a single board. Build your own, or make a different project with the MeeBlip sound engine.
  • 8-bit digital brain.
  • MIDI input.
  • 4-pole active low-pass antialising filter.
  • Open source hardware. Modify anything, buy some kits and sell your own builds, or make new projects.
  • Complete kits ship with a custom front panel illustrated by Nathanael Jeanneret.

A MeeBlip Quick Build Kit (includes an assembled board, case, and everything you need – no soldering required) ships internationally for $129 USD. A full board kit and bare PC board (with programmed MCU and DAC) are also available at $79 and $39 USD respectively.
