NAMM 2023 - Playtime Engineering - Blipblox SK2

video upload by sonicstate

"Playtime Engineering's Troy spoke with Sonic State about their latest release, the Blipblox SK2. The SK2 is a synthesizer that features the same synthesis engine as the Blipblox after dark, including wave tables, resonant multi-mode filters, and sample drums. However, the SK2 has been designed to be more kid-friendly, with a new label design, label controls, and signal flow diagram.

Troy demonstrated the SK2's sound capabilities, showcasing built-in sequences and the MIDI input that allows users to play their own sequences. Playtime Engineering has already tested the SK2 with kids and received positive feedback, with parents reporting that their children continue to play with the Blipblox after years of use.

Blipblox SK2 Available now. Price: 199 USD"

video upload by sonicstate

"Another made for kids product from Playtime Engineering to go a long with the original BlipBlox synth toy that we secretly suspect many people wouldn't mind spending some quality time with. The MyTracks is a more beats focussed device, with MPC style pads, clip launching and sampling to keep you entertained.

Jim unleashed his inner child and fooled around with it so you don't have to.

myTracks available early 2023. Price: 249 USD"

NAMM 22: Playtime Engineering: MyTracks Groovestation

video upload by sonicstate

"Playtime Engineering create synths and instruments aimed at kids, but their big colourful designs can be enjoyed by all.

Troy introduced us to the new myTracks groovestation and sampler, and it looks like a super-friendly MPC with loads of instruments pre loaded and a sequencer that can send data to other instruments, meaning you can build a small set up with the myTracks at its heart. The built in FX are controlled by the Blipblox signature chunky levers, and the whole unit is safety tested for kids aged 3 and up, but maybe we all deserve a little more playtime in our lives?

myTracks available early 2023. Price: 249 USD

After Dark Available now. Price 199 USD

Blipblox SK2 Available November. Price: TBC"

Features such as 48 real instrument sounds, built-in microphone for audio sampling, and two FX processors make this an advanced music device. But just like all other Blipblox products, it is engineered so that anyone can create multi-tracked songs right out of the box.

Both products are portable with batteries and a built-in speaker so you can take your creativity anywhere.

[This shows a product which can be a Toy, so I have marked it 'for kids'.]"

NAMM 2020: Playtime Engineering BlipBlox After Dark Sounds

Published on Jan 17, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"Playtime Engineering's Blipblox After Dark is a revised and repackaged version of their Blipblox synthesizer, turning a toy into a tool for serious sonic exploration and production.

Introduced last year, the Playtime Engineering Blipblox is a synthesizer designed to be safe and fun for young children. Playtime Engineering no doubt noticed, though, that the device kept finding its way into the hands of adults: so they created Blipblox After Dark, which dispenses of the original's cryptic labeling and adds extra features that turn it into a considerably more useful tool for musicians of all ages.

The advanced multimode filter, multi-tap stereo delay, 256 custom wavetables, and considerably expanded drum tone palette open the Blipblox to a considerably broader range of musical contexts than previously possible—and don't fret, it's still fun for kids as well!

Playtime Engineering gear available here"
