MeeBlip The Hackable Digital Synth

via this auction

"The MeeBlip is a hackable and affordable digital synthesizer, made for accessible sound and hands-on control. It can be someone's first synth; a unique-sounding addition to your music setup, playable with MIDI hardware and software; a synth you open up and modify, learning about sound creation, code and electronics and also the basis of new projects and ideas.

Out of the box, here is a monophonic virtual analog synth with 8 user-definable knobs and 16 slide switches, for hands-on control with the immediacy of a classic monosynth. You can use it as-is or use the source code to remap controls or completely redefine the instrument's architecture.

The MeeBlip's story doesn't end when you get it. It's built to be a community synth. The MeeBlip will be supported by Create Digital Music and the Noisepages community to help get you started with ideas for how to use, play and modify it.

By making use of affordable and easy-to-obtain parts, the MeeBlip is tailored to be both functional and easily hackable. Reflex Audio are not using hard-to-source parts that could interfere with modifying the design or building your own hardware. They also selected a design to make the MeeBlip musically useful.
