The power of a fully-fledged modular synth in a guitar pedal - it could only mean Poly Effects are on the case. The Australian stompbox whizzes are some of the most technologically advanced creators in the business. They're here with the Beebo, providing you with an almost endless list of modulation effects to push the boundaries of what a guitar can do. The Beebo is both your perfect live tool with super easy access to each effect, and your go-to experimental box of sound design.
- Advanced touch screen modulation pedal
- Conventional swell, delay, reverb, chorus, looping, compressor, pan, phaser and more
- Eurorack synth-inspired effects: bitmangle, freeze, granular, analog filters, LFOs, time stretch, turntable stop and more
- Combine effects and build your own from scratch
- Extremely deep parameters
- Assignable function footswitches
- MIDI and USB compatible
Here's what Poly Effects say about the Beebo:
Beebo is a multi modulation pedal that also gives you the power of a eurorack modular synth in an easy to use touch screen pedal. If you want great live tools or to push the boundaries of sound design, Beebo will get you there.
If you’re looking for conventional effects, auto swell, delay, algorithmic reverb, chorus, looping delay, mono & stereo EQ, mono & stereo compressor, pan, phaser, reverse, rotary, saturator, phaser, warmth and zero flanger, Beebo will cover your needs.
Each effect is a powerful algorithm when used alone, but the real magic comes when you combine them and control them. The rotary for example, exposes more than 30 parameters for those who want to dig deep into its detailed physical model. Combining effects, and controlling one module from another is what it’s all about in the Beebo.
You can make the foot switches change a value, or connect up parameters to a random source, an LFO or an envelope follower. Modules that generate control signals can be controlled too, which is the power of a modular workflow. For example, If you don’t get everything you want out of the built in chorus or flanger modules you can build your own by adding a few delay modules and modulating them. You can also send control signals out as MIDI CC to control other pedals. Beebo plays well with others and it’s easy to share presets, just plug in a USB flash drive and export or import them.
If you want modular or weirder effects, the bitmangle, freeze, granular, 6 different virtual analog filters, powerful LFOs, time stretch, turntable stop, twist delay, VCA, wavefolder, attenuverter and more Beebo will cover it.
There’s some very powerful modules ported from the best eurorack modules including a granular texture synthesiser, a 16 model macro oscillator voice and a meta modulator with 7 blendable signal combining algorithms including ring modulation, comparators and cross folding.
The MIDI to V/oct module allows you to drive the synthesis modules from MIDI note input.
Digit Merges into Beebo
The Beebo and Digit firmwares have now been merged into a single firmware. Existing owners will be able to update to the new unified firmware. The new firmware means that the convolution based real space reverbs can be used with the full range of modulation and synthesis effects.
The combined firmware now includes 94 modules ranging from harmonic tremolo to Déjà vu random melody generation.
