March 27, 2024 | by The Jeuns

Playtime Engineering, the innovative company known for the popular Blipblox line of toy-like instruments designed for children ages three and up, has announced the upcoming release of Blipblox myTRACKS. This new product combines the vibrant, playful design of a children’s toy with the sounds and style of a hip-hop-inspired groovebox. The Kickstarter campaign for Blipblox myTRACKS is set to launch on April 9, 2024.

Blipblox myTRACKS offers more than just a traditional drum machine or sampler – it serves as a complete music production studio. Featuring a built-in microphone for sampling, two FX processors, five tracks, and 25 playpads that trigger over 50 real acoustic, electronic, and percussive instrument sounds, this instrument is perfect for aspiring musicians of all ages.

Users can explore a wide variety of built-in instruments and drum kits across 5 tracks, add effects, and modulate them using the two purple levers. The built-in microphone allows for easy sound sampling, enabling users to create songs based on their own audio recordings. Additionally, users can access hundreds of built-in melodies and drum loops for creative inspiration, and record their own notes to further customize their music. With upgradable sound packs available online, creators will have endless materials to work with.

Since its inception in 2018, Blipblox has been committed to creating instruments that cater to everyone, from young children to seasoned musicians. Blipblox myTRACKS is a music production studio designed to be fun and user-friendly, while ensuring that all musical elements sound cohesive when used together. The randomization feature adds an element of surprise, generating new songs for endless fun and inspiration.

To support the launch of Blipblox myTRACKS, Playtime Engineering will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on April 9. The first batch of products is expected to be delivered by November 2024. Reservations for the new product can be made on the official Blipblox website.

What started as a hobby for Silicon Valley electrical engineer Troy Sheets has blossomed into a successful business venture with the support of his wife and co-founder, Kate Sheets. Through bootstrapping and crowdfunding, Playtime Engineering has been able to bring their unique line of instruments to life. They express gratitude to their supporters who have helped fund previous products and look forward to welcoming more music enthusiasts to the Blipblox community with the introduction of myTRACKS.
