Small. Dirty. Deep.

MeeBlips are not polite, and they’re not pristine. They’re deceptively tiny, simple synths that make big, grimy sounds.

The award-winning MeeBlip anode was already capable of producing ridiculous bass sounds. So with triode, we challenged ourselves to make things even more extreme.

triode's huge sound is driven by three oscillators and a unique twin-t analog lowpass filter. Switch on the pure square wave sub-oscillator and punish your favorite subwoofers.

Choose from traditional square / pwm / sawtooth waveforms, or select from 24 grungy single-cycle wavetables.

Now, everything is MIDI controllable - even filter resonance.

And it’s 100% more red.

Features

Analog filter

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.
Three powerful oscillators

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.
Independently made

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.

What people said about our previous releases

Future Music
If you’re itching to get your hands on some physical knobs and make a few filthy sounds, the anode is a fantastic buy.

– Future Music

Keyboard Magazine
After a day in the studio it becomes clear that nothing else sounds like anode. Key Buy.

Sound on Sound
This small box is bursting with possibilities.

– Sound on Sound

Resident Advisor
The anode doesn’t sound like a [KORG] Volca … It’s fatter and nastier, and it also feels like more of a staple. It has a grittier, arguably more analogue character than anything in its price range, and it’s simple yet proficient.

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.
