Crumar Bit One Polysynth Emulated


Manx Synthesizers has announced the addition of a new synth to their product line : the Manx Bit100 polysynth. They tell us that this is a highly accurate emulation of the Crumar Bit One vintage analog synthesizer and believe that the launch of the Bit100 brings software analog emulation to a new level of accuracy.
Features
  • Two fully loaded LFO's, which can oscillate at audio frequencies
  • Duophonic Unison Mode
  • Midi automation
  • 3 waveforms per oscillator which can output concurrently
  • Velocity sensitivity, assignable to PW & LFO rate as well as the mor common destinations
A spokesperson had this to say, "Consider the great analog synthesizers of the 1980's: Roland Jupiter 8, Rhodes Chroma, Elka Synthex, Crumar Bit One. Well, That last one may not appear on everyone's list, but for the dwindling number of people who own a Crumar Bit synth, almost all agree that the sound that comes out of this beast is first class - somewhere between an Ob-X and a Synthex; bright & punchy but also rich & eerie. Unfortunately, there are a few down sides to this machine - reliability, poor midi spec, missing features and awkward programming interface are generally the most common grievances. Manx have cast those issues aside with the release of our Bit 100 software emulation of the original Bit One, which combines all of the punchy sound, plus the unique features of the Bit One (such as velocity control of pulse width), with all of the advantages of a software implementation."
