B.I.T. stands for Back In Time...
Instead of combining the best of analog modeling with hybrid synthesis, which we can see with the other Rob Papen synthesizers, B.I.T. focuses on Analogue Modelled Synthesis.
Why this move you might think? The idea behind it is that the classic analog type of synthesis has its own charm and simply has not yet been covered by the Rob Papen brand. So, no spectrum waveforms, or samples inside B.I.T. nope, it is pure 'Analogue Modelled' synthesis.
Although B.I.T. has no patch cables, it is modular by all means. The Modulation Matrix is used for the patching, however, also included is the smart 'advanced' panel below the Oscillators. With these advanced features (accessed by switching the ADV switch), you can quickly make several connections such as LFO and Envelope to the Oscillator parameters inside of B.I.T.
Also included is the option to modulate Oscillator 2 by Oscillator 1 in several ways which expands the sound pallet with Phase Modulation, Frequency Modulation, and Ring Modulation.
A Rob Papen synthesizer would, of course, be incomplete without the arpeggiator (which can also work in sequencer mode), so a fully featured Arp is available and has an additional free row that you can use to modulate other parts of B.I.T. by using the Modulation Matrix.
Adding the finishing touch on B.I.T. is, of course, the FX section. Some superb sounding FX are added. Rob Papen's top-notch Reverb is also included inside B.I.T. which means you won't have to go outboard for adding reverb.
As previously mentioned B.I.T. stands for 'Back In Time' however it can also mean 'Be Inspired Today' whilst using our Analogue Modelled Synthesizer.
