As bristol is stereo then each layer is allocated to the left or right channel.

For the other emulations they are accessible from the address entry buttons. Your browser does not support the audio element. 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. However with The different Crumar models being released as the digital era began they kind of fell between the crack.
Crumar Performer Brass Section Hi there. The oscillators can work slightly differently as well. 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.
All the emulations have the same parameters, some require you use the data entry controls to access them. You can mix the waveform as per the original however the apparant boolean selectors are again continuous from 0. It had a keyboard sensitivity pot however that is achieved separately with bristol using velocity curves from the MIDI control settings. Bristol is in no way associated with the original manufacturer, neither do they endorse this product.
If stereo is not selected then you have a mono synth. The memories for the bit-1 and bit should be interchangable however the code maintains separate directories. The engine uses the exact same algorithm for all emulations but the GUI presents different sets of parameters on the front panel.

This is slightly compensated by the ability to configure more complex DCO. These mixes can be changed with parameters to using extended data entry documented below. The first is the bit-1 with a limited parameter set as it only had 64 byte memories.
Bristol is free software. When you load it with a single push on the Load button it returns to the active program, but if you double click then its ‘peer’ program is loaded into the other layer: Mono is a centre pan of the signal and Stereo pans hardleft and hardright respectively.
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 m2 put in a few extra features ie, took a few liberties that were not in the original: When the Decay on brass section is at “0” do you lose most of the control of your The Bit 99 is one of the first synthesizers from which traditional knobs and sliders have been banned. In dual or split they came out separate feeds if Stereo was selected.
This is not the default behaviour, you first have to edit address and increment it.
Since the displays only have 2 digits it is not totally straightforward to enter these values and they are only available in Single mode, not dual or split – strangely similar to the original specification for editing memories. It is advised however not required that this dual loading is done from the lower layer.
Two DCO with cfumar waveforms. Polyphony – 6 voices. This is because they are implemented in the bristol MIDI library and not the emulation.
crumag Since this is a purely digital emulations then the filters are a bit weak. It has some very nice mod features though, it was fun to emulate and hopefully enjoyable to play with. The front panel gain controls are also not saved in the memory and default to 0. 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 cumar loaded.
It Works perfectly, except that depending The second is the bit that included midi and split parameter in the GUI and has the white design that was an option from Crumar. They work like this not quite the same as the original: Just played italian sound only: The net result is that the oscillators are quite Voxy having the ability to mix various harmonic levels of different mixable waveforms. The bit-1 did not have the Stereo control – the controller presented is the Unison button.
The memories are organised differently to the original.
This has the rather strange side effect of single mode with 6 voices. 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. 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.
Date Produced – – The emulation includes the ‘Compare’ and ‘Park’ features although they are a little annoying without a control surface.
The following were added which were not really part of the Bit specifications so are only visible on the front panel of the bit Then, each layer can be simultaneously edited and just needs to be parked and saved separately. 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.
Bristol can have all memories as Split or Layer. This exits the extended mode.
