|The Bit-01 is a 6-voice programmable polyphonic analog synthesizer with digital control. It is essentially a rackmount version of the Bit-99 keyboard synthesizer. It has two analog oscillators per voice that are digitally stabilized and controlled. Also on-board are resonant filters, ADSR envelopes and two LFOs. Fairly easy hands-on editing and a layer/split function make this a very useable poly-synth! The MIDI implementation is basic but useable and there are 99 memory patches. The Bit-01 is well suited for studio use and in all forms of electronic music.
|LFO||2 LFO's (triangle, ramp and square waveforms)|
|Engine Detailed||2 DCOs per voice (triangle, sawtooth, pulse waveforms, noise)|
|Filter (VCF)||VCF: cutoff, resonance, tracking, invert (inverts VCF values), ADSR|
|Memory||99 patches (75 single programs and from 76 to 99 for "split" or "double" modes)|

||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.
||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
|Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
