Sounds Of The Crumar Bit 99 Synthesizer

However with The different Crumar models being released as the digital era began they kind of fell between the crack. For MIDI program change then since this quirky interface cannot be emulated then the memories above 75 will be dual loaded, the rest will be single loaded.

This is the same as the original, there were diverse parameters that were not in memories that needed to be entered manually every time you wanted the feature. Anyway, whilst considering how to implement the entry keys and having features like the mouse tracking the selectors of the parameter graphics I was reminded of this synthesizer.

Similarly the emulations do not have a Unison button, the capability is available from DE If stereo is selected crumra voices will exit from a totally arbitrary output depending on which voices is allocated to each note. It had a keyboard sensitivity pot however that is achieved separately with bristol using velocity curves from the MIDI control settings. It had 99 memories, and the ones from 75 and above were for Split and Layered memories.

bitt The Bristol Bitm2 has about all of the parameters selectable from the front panel biit all of the emulations use the same memories so it is not required to configure them at startup ie, they are saved. Bristol carries no logo. Bristol can have all memories as Split or Layer. The Compare button can be used to flip between the last loaded value and the current modified one to allow you to see if you prefer the sound before or after the modification.


The following were added which were not really part of the Bit specifications so are only visible on the front panel of the bit All the emulations have the same parameters, some require you use the data entry controls to access them. You can edit the upper layer voices but they will be saved with their original extended parameters. The oscillators can work slightly differently as well. Keyboard – 61 full size keys, slightly weighted. As bristol is stereo then each layer is allocated to the left or right channel.

The square wave is exclusive and will typically only function on the most recently selected ie, typically highest harmonic. This synth was used by State but the synth sounds a lot like Orbital ‘s “In-sides” album. I was considering the implementation of the Korg, a synth I half used to own without having much respect for it – it was a late low cost analogue having just one filter for all the notes and using the mildly annoying data entry buttons and parameter selectors.

This sequence will allow the lower layer to configure certain global options that the upper layer will not overwrite, for example the layer volumes will be select from the lower layer when the upper layer is dual loaded.

Audio Clip 1 Here’s a simple demo pattern from the Breakthru web site. The envelopes were touch sensitive for gain but also for attack giving plenty of expressive capabilities. Having only one filter meant that with key tracking enabled the filter would open up as different keys were pressed, wildly changing the sound of active notes.

A rackmount version was also released, called the Bit This is kind of intentional but if in doubt then only ever dual load voices from the lower layer and edit them in single mode not split or biy. Bristol is free software. The net result is that the oscillators are quite Voxy having the ability to mix various harmonic levels of different mixable waveforms.


The implementation actually uses two different stereo mixes selectable with the Stereo button: Crumar Performer Brass Section Hi crhmar. When the Decay on brass section is at “0” do you lose ctumar of the control of your A quick rundown of the features: This is because they are implemented in the bristol MIDI library and not the emulation. The Bit 99 can produce a wide variety of sounds but bass sounds are the best.

The transpose selectors 32′, 16′, 8′ and 2′ were exclusive in the original.

Crumar Bit One fault This exits the extended mode. The first is the bit-1 with a limited parameter set as it only had 64 byte memories.

The emulation recognises the following parameters: Two DCO with mixed waveforms. The edit method is easy to understand. That is true here also, however if controllers 84 and 85 are set to zero then they can all work together to fatten out the sound. The engine uses the exact same algorithm for all emulations but the GUI presents different sets of parameters on the front panel. Just played italian sound only: Also, the controllers look like boolean however that is only the case if the data entry buttons are used, if you change the value with the data entry pot then they act more like continuous drawbars, a nice effect however the display will not show the actual value as the display remains boolean, you have to use your ear.

This came out at the same time as the DX-7 but for half the price and having the split and layer facilities won it several awards that would otherwise have gone to the incredibly innovative DX.
