The Bit-100 is a VST host compatible virtual instrument for windows Features: Very accurate emulation of the Crummar Bit-One analog polysynth 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 more common destinations 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. However, most important of all, we believe that the launch of the Bit-100 brings software analog emulation to a new level of accuracy - check out the audio example below: Have a listen.................

System requirements: The Bit-100 is a vsti instrument - it requires a vst compatible host, which runs under windows 32 bit. 5 MB hard disk space. You should download the demo version before buying, in order to check that the Bit-100 works well with your system. The 'Demo' version of the Bit-100 is well worth having even if you never intend to purchase the retail version. The demo version never expires and provides all the functionality of the retail Bit-100. What you get is a one second gap in the audio output that occurs once every two minutes - more of a nuisance than anything else. Whilst this may be a problem for live use, you can have a lot of fun with the Bit-100 Demo in the studio and if you want to use it in a composition, just wait for the one second drop out to occur and start recording with two minutes of output at your disposal. Think of the Bit-100 Demo as a gift!
