Playtime Engineering, the company behind the Blipblox line of toy-like instruments for ages three and older, has announced the upcoming launch of Blipblox myTRACKS.

Combining the colorful aesthetics and safety of a kids’ toy with the sounds and style of a hip-hop-inspired groovebox, Blipblox myTRACKS brings the joy of making music to anyone, anywhere. A crowdfunding campaign to support the launch opens early next month.

In addition to being a drum machine and basic sampler, the Blipblox myTRACKS is a complete music production studio. The instrument features a built-in microphone for sampling, two FX processors, five tracks, and 25 play pads that trigger over 50 acoustic, electronic, and percussive instrument sounds.

The myTRACKS user can explore the wide variety of built-in instruments and drum kits across 5 tracks, adding effects and modulating them using the two purple levers. Sample any sound with the built-in microphone, then build a song around  samples. Get creative inspiration by launching one of the hundreds of built-in melodies and drum loops, then play and record your own notes. The instrument is instantly upgradable with sound packs and sets online and available for download.

Creators position the Blipblox myTRACKS as “a full music production studio intentionally crafted to eliminate complexity and maximize fun.” Designed to keep musical key and style consistent in each of its sets, myTRACKS makes sure that all musical elements sound great together. The powerful randomize feature instantly creates new songs for unlimited fun and inspiration.

“Creating music with synthesizers and modern music tech has always felt like play to me,” says Troy Sheets, Co-founder of Playtime Engineering. “By merging the portability, durability, and safety of toys with high-quality and advanced functionality of a legitimate instrument, we’ve created a fun and accessible music-making machine that anyone can play.”

Pricing and Availability. To fund the launch of this newest addition to the Blipblox product line, Playtime Engineering is opening a Kickstarter campaign on April 9. Tiered pricing will range from $249 – $299 for Kickstarter contributors, and the first round of products is expected to be delivered in November 2024.
