In this video, Espen Kraft takes a look at the Crumar Bit 01 – a vintage analog synth that he describes as a sort of time machine to the 80’s!
If you’ve used the Crumar Bit 01, leave a comment and share your thoughts on it!
In 1985 Crumar released the souped up version of the BitONE synthesizer that addressed many of the problems of the BitONE, detune on DCO2, programmable volume on whole patches, noise generator and much better MIDI specs.
The Bit01 has real personality and I show off many of it’s sonic possibilities in this video with some original patches I made.
The opening track is the theme from the Italian horror movie “Zombie Fleash-Eaters” aka “Zombie 2” by Lucio Fulci. Released late in 1979 in contained music from the fabolous Fabio Frizzi, one of my all time favourite soundtrack composers. All the sounds in my recreation of this theme, apart from the drums, is from the BIT99 synthesizer. Multitracked. Additional effects used throughout this video.
