Since this is crmuar purely digital emulations then the filters are a bit weak. Memory – 99 patches 75 single programs and from 76 to 99 for “split” or “double” crumra.
Then, each layer can be simultaneously edited and just needs to be parked and saved separately. The Bristol Bitm2 has about all of the parameters selectable from the front panel however all of the emulations use the same memories so it is not required to configure them at startup ie, they are saved.
Sounds Of The Crumar Bit 99 Synthesizer
Crumar performer output noise when chords press Crumar performer,All keys works fine,but when pressed two or more keys chord together ,it makes noise. 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. Crjmar front panel gain controls are also not saved in the memory and default to 0.
It Works perfectly, except crumwr depending The emulation includes the ‘Compare’ and ‘Park’ features although they are a little annoying without a control surface. The same continuous control is also available on the waveform selectors.
The Bit 99 is one of the first synthesizers from which traditional knobs and sliders have been banned.
The stereo mode should be correctly implemented too. For MIDI program change then since this quirky interface cannot be emulated then the memories above 75 will crukar dual loaded, the rest will be single loaded. Additional information provided by Telmo J. Crumar Performer Brass Section Hi there. Per default the emulation, as 999 the original, will not allow voice editing in Split or Layer modes however it can be enabled with DE These mixes can be changed with parameters to using extended data entry documented below.
You can use park and compare over dual loaded voices: The Compare button can be used to rcumar 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.
Bristol carries no logo. When you load it with a single push on the Load button it returns to the active program, but if you bir click then its ‘peer’ program is loaded into the other layer: Bristol can have all memories as Split or Layer.
Since the displays only have 2 digits it is not totally straightforward to enter these values and bt are only available in Single mode, not dual or split – strangely similar to the original specification for editing memories.
Crumar Bit 99
The Bit 99 can produce a wide variety of sounds but bass sounds are the best. The engine uses the exact same algorithm for all emulations but the GUI presents different sets of parameters on the front panel.
The bristol envelope, when configured for velocity sensitive parameters other than just gain will also affect the attack rate. This synth was used by State but the synth sounds a lot like Orbital ‘s “In-sides” album. You can mix the waveform as per the original however the apparant boolean selectors are again continuous from 0.
The bit-1 did not have the Stereo control – the controller presented is the Unison button.
Bristol uses this with the addition that the mouse can click on a parameter to start entering modifications to it. The emulation recognises the following parameters: The transpose selectors 32′, 16′, 8′ and 2′ were exclusive in the original. Date Produced nit – 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.
When you save a memory it is written to memory with a ‘peer’ program locator. This is because they are implemented in the bristol MIDI library and not the emulation. 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.
The synth was not really stereo, it had two outputs – one for each layer. The envelopes were touch sensitive for gain but also for attack giving plenty of expressive capabilities.
Bristol Crumar Bit
It has some very nice mod features though, it was fun to emulate and hopefully enjoyable to play with. This may seem correct however it is possible to edit an upper layer voice, save it, and have it sound different when next loaded since the extended parameters were taken from a different lower layer.
Bristol will also emulate a bit and a Bitm2 that includes some parameter on the front panel that were not available on the original. It was developed by Crumar but released under the name ‘Bit’ as the Crumar name was associated with cheesy roadrunner electric pianos at the time also emulated by Bristol.
