Presenting the new MeeBlip Anode: A Compact Bass Synth Module from Create Digital Music + Reflex:
Find out the full details here:
From the MeeBlip project they’ve updated their MeeBlip line with the Anode. The new design is smaller 4×4 Inches. Features Digitally Controlled Oscillators with the added new bonus of going thru Analog Filters! Listening to the demos you can really hear the difference, this new MeeBlip sounds raw, beefy, and full of character:
Right now the options appear to be a fully assembled Anode. Although the users are encouraged to hack it! From the MeeBlip Page:
As with MeeBlip SE, MeeBlip anode is fully-assembled and ready to go. We believe there are benefits of being open for everyone, not just those who can program or solder. But it’s also open when you want it to be – and, just like all the MeeBlips, fully open source hardware (GPLv3/CC-BY-SA). You get an instrument that can be modified, with a design you can learn from, that’s future-proofed by being available to a community of musicians.
anode’s hardware itself is also more hackable than MeeBlips before. Intrepid hardware lovers can try changing component values to modify the filter – for the first time, this is a MeeBlip with analog mods possible as well as digital. And we have new opportunities for transforming the code. There’s still a programmer port, for modifying the firmware via an inexpensive hardware adapter or an Arduino.
(We’re also this month introducing the new MeeBlip micro, for those who want a custom board to build into their own instruments or interface with tools like Arduino.)

Quite a packed punch of sounds for $129 USD. Maybe a fun winter project for tearing it open and hacking the CV controls for the analog filter and resonance. Analog 4 plus the MeeBlip anyone???
