This is probably the cutest thing you are going to see this week (or this month?). Blööps just got in touch with us to announce, compüter, in their words “a lo-fi, 12-bit goofy synthesizer you can have fun with”.
What Can You Do with Compüter?
This little plugin has some nifty performative features, which might be helpful both in a studio production or a live performance context.
Here are some of the ways you can use it:
- Move the joystick to add a bit-reduction effect
- Decrease the battery to add a bit-crush distortion effect
- Tweak D-Pad to increase the drift of oscillators
- Press buttons to enable different modulation modes and combine them together
Main Compüter Features:
- 8-voice 12-bit polyphonic synthesizer with oscillator drift
- bit-reduction distortion and bit-crush
- 4 different oscillator modulation modes, which can be combined together
- built-in spacious stereo reverb with beautiful overtones
- attack/decay envelope
- Max for Live compatible (too bad, I know – let’s hope the developer finds a way to bring it to other platforms, we already asked!)
Here is a lovely video demonstrating the sounds of this plugin:

If you are into retro-sounding emulations, make sure to check our Plogue Chipspeech review, our RX1200 review, and our Permut8 review. They are all something very different from Compüter, and yet their nostalgic roots are quite similar.
