Rare 2009 BLIPTRONIC 5000 polyphonic synthesizer in mint condition. Comes with original box, manual and cables. Hard to find, especially in this condition.

Billed as an LED synthesizer, it certainly owes a debt of design gratitude to the Tenori-on, being based on an 8x8 matrix of light up buttons. Music is made in a pattern-based fashion, and the built-in sounds are of a retro nature.

Control dials enable you to pick your instrument type, adjust the tempo (the range is 60-160bpm), set the volume and turn looping on or off. There's a built-in speaker (plus line-out and headphones sockets) and multiple Bliptronics can be linked together.

You can also use the BLIPTRONIC 5000 as a midi controller using a Sonuss G2M V3 (video of this on Youtube) or as a way to get polyphony in eurorack.

Bliptronic 5000 features:

  • Unusual retro synthesizer is played with a grid of glowing buttons.
  • Create looping patterns and change them dynamically while playing.
  • Chain multiple units together and create more complex melodies.
  • One octave range. 8 notes can be played simultaneously. (8 note polyphony)
  • 8 different retro old-skool synth sounding instruments to choose from.
  • Sounds created using FM waveform synthesis.
  • Set the BPM (beats per minute) from 60 to 180 in 20 BPM increments.
  • Built-in speaker with headphone jack and line-out jack.
  • Front panel is constructed from brushed aluminum.
  • Upto 4 Bliptronics can be connected together using optional cables (not included)
  • Requires 4 x AA batteries.
