1010Music Bitbox, FXbox & Synthbox Hands-On Demo

The latest loopop video takes a look at the 1010Music Series 1 modules, Bitbox, FXbox & Synthbox.

The Euro-format modules share a single hardware platform, so you can use any of the firmware versions on it.

Video Summary:

A few years ago 1010Music released Bitbox – a simplified but extremely powerful Ableton-Live style sampler, slicer and clip launcher – by far the most advanced Eurorack sampler I’ve ever seen. Where it gets a little confusing is that since then they’ve released two completely different firmware versions for the same hardware – Fxbox and Synthbox, which transform it into radically different modules.]

I’m not talking about just updates with new features (which have also come out separately), but rather alternate firmware versions with entirely different functionality. In parallel, they’ve released independent modules with said firmware versions, which can also load each other’s firmware.
