2012 was a really important year for us on MeeBlip. Making new things is exciting, but there’s a special pleasure to refinement, to solving problems and making things better, which is what we got to do. And around the holidays, we got an unexpected gift: MeeBlip SE made a number of appearances in guides to gift buying and the best of 2012.
If you want to give a gift to yourself right now to fight the January blues, your timing is perfect – shipping is free or reduced until the end of the day January 13.
And that’s not to brag: it’s you MeeBlip users who have made this all possible. Here’s the latest:
Not just for synth geeks, DJ sites take notice, too – like Gina at DJZ:
“The MeeBlip SE is an affordable piece of hardware for makers and musicians alike. It’s got a gritty sound that can range in timbre from a conventional analog synth to the Dorito of the chiptunes.”

“The MeeBlip SE has come into its own as a truly unique-sounding piece of kit that delivers either digital grunge or analog-style swagger, depending on how you set up its panel of 16 switches and nine knobs.”
(PS, whatever comments may say, we’re very pleased with the company we’re in – like Wolfgang Palm, a synth hero of ours, Moog, Dave Smith, and Arturia’s lovely Minibrute! Been having fun with the iPolySix this week, too.)
Adafruit Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Music – yep, this is a giant list of DIY sound stuff from Matt at Adafruit that we’d love to have.
MeeBlip is one of the coolest ideas we’ve seen recently, and a great start to learning your way around synthesis.
Lots of other cool and affordable stuff in there. (Note, though: we’re now all fully-assembled. But we can still help you learn about synthesis!)
