Test CRUMAR BIT99 Synthesizer - Artwork Limited Edition

Published on Feb 3, 2019 Buda Music

"The Bit 99 was offered by Crumar in 1985.

It is a 6 voice polyphonic analog synths with 2 DCO's
on board and CEM3328 Filters.

The instrument featured 3+3 notes in layer mode and
99 patch memories and also has MIDI IN/OUT.

Note: Read presets SySex files by MIDI IN.

The Bit 99 is one of the first synthesizers from which traditional knobs and sliders have been banned.

The edit method is easy to understand.

The Bit 99 can produce a wide variety of sounds but bass sounds are the best.

With a polyphony of three notes, instead of six normally, you can have two sounds layered!

Possibilities are almost unlimited and if the 99 patches are not enough you can save the data to tape and load it when you want!

This synth was used by 808 State but the synth sounds a lot like Orbital's "In-sides" album.

Polyphony - 6 voices
Oscillators - 2 DCOs per voice
LFO - 2 LFOs assignable to VCA, VCF, DCO1, DCO2
Filter - VCF: cutoff, resonance, tracking, invert (inverts VCF values), ADSR
Keyboard - 61 full size keys with sensibility control, semi weighted
Memory - 99 patches (75 single programs and from 76 to 99 for "split" or "double" modes)

(The CRUMAR BIT99 synthesizer of this video is a unique piece of hand-painted artwork)"
