Crumar Bit-99
– Perfect Strings

This sample starts in single mode, true-stereo activated. The notes appear randomly left and right. At 00:44 double mode (layer) is switched on. Two sounds per note reduce the Bit polyphony to 3 voices …

Crumar Bit-99
– Bass 2

Monophonic sequence – double bass (layer) with true-stereo function. I guess the Bit-99 (Bit-01) is one of the most underrated polyphonic analog synthesizers. 6 voices, 12 DCOs, CEM filter, VC attack, VC LFOs … It’s sounding excellent, and it has MIDI, too!

Crumar Trilogy
– Glide C

This sample shows setting C. Oscillator 2 glides down to the target frequency, while oscillator 1 stays unchanged. Closed filter frequency, hence the rather mystique sound. Turn up the volume!
