Crumar Bit 01 Rack Expander 6-Voice Vintage Synthesizer SN 00060


via this auction

The Bit 01 is an analog six-voice polyphonic MIDI module. It has MIDI-in only, so there's no saving patches by MIDI - only to the Tape interface (which I haven't tested). There are 99 memory locations - 75 for basic patches - 24 for saving splits & doubles. It has selectable stereo audio outputs for those split & double modes (3 voices per channel).
I don't have the proper owner's manual, only a scan of the Bit 99 manual (the same engine with a keyboard) which you'll get in a nice binder! The 01 lacks the "program advance" pedal input (for program chaining) and headphone jack that the 99 has. It does have the release pedal input. The MIDI input works fine, including program change. The sound is clean from both channels."
