Bleep Labs Nebulophone

In order to add an extra ‘voice’ to my mobile setup (more on that later) I got a Nebulophone from Bleep Labs. The Nebulophone is a tiny (very tiny) monophonic arduino based synth that packs a might punch and an impressive feature set.

DSC00669_pYou can read all about it at the Bleep Labs website, but suffice it to say that this little instrument sounded and played better than I imagined. I had a chance to play it at a jam session yesterday and it added some impressive sounds and textures to the set.

It has 5 waveforms that all sound very raw and punchy. The built in, programmable arpeggiator also adds a lot of fun. Even though the interface is very bare in terms of buttons and pots it’s still not complicated to grasp, and as a small, improvisational source of randomness and uncertainty it sounded fantastic.
