This is not the first synthesizer for the children that we saw, but the Blipbloxdevice its debut at the NAMM 2018 adds a familiar, toy-like design and the plastic housing. According to its creator, it combines the “professional features” such as a MIDI input, audio, single-oscillator modulation schemes and LED lights that sync to music. It is expected that children as young as three to take a turn as music producers, and will “target” price of$159.
The hook here is that unlike a simple keyboards, Blipblox has “a proprietary algorithm that synthesizes all unique waveforms so that you can create your own soundwave. A studio session demo video gives a better example of the sounds that are possible, and it is not too difficult to imagine that if you understand what each color-coded set of switches is for you, then you might want to do some SoundCloud-worthy electronica. And hopefully release it quickly, before your children take all the time in the studio for themselves.
