Eye want to make some noise
Image placeholder title

It’s back and buzzier than ever: Thingamagoop 3000, the latest version of Bleep Labs’ light-controlled syntheziser, effect, and “noise friend” generates all sorts of weird and wacky sounds via a photosensitive “eyeball” that alters a sound’s frequency, or adjusts a patch or effect. The Arduino-based synth has four patches, and offers new effects that include square and amplitude modulation (“from tremolo to Tune In Tokyo”), lowpass filter, delay, and rate reduction. The unit has a built-in speaker, is powered via USB or 9V battery, and is available in custom LED and plate colors. Audio in and out is 16-bit/44.1kHz.
