BIT stands for Back In Time… and now we move to time travel level 2.0

As you can see with the previous Rob Papen synthesizers, BIT-2's major focus is on analogue Modelled Synthesis rather than fusing the best of analogue modeling with hybrid synthesis.The concept behind BIT-2 is that the traditional analogue style of synthesis has its own allure and has just not been addressed by the Rob Papen brand in this manner.

Although BIT-2 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.

Additions to Version 2 are Oscillators. Here you will find SuperSaw and SuperSquare waves, which are multiple Oscillators generated inside Oscillator 1 and/or 2. They give even more flexibility in creating sounds. Kept from the previous version is the option to modulate Oscillator 2 by Oscillator 1 in several ways which expands the sound palette massively with Phase Modulation, Frequency Modulation, and Ring Modulation! 

The two top-notch analogue modeled Filters are expanded in BIT-2 with additional modes further enhancing its capabilities for sound shaping.

BIT-2’s arpeggiator/sequencer is the option to dynamically change the start step and end step number, resulting in interesting real-time changing patterns! Another feature is the ‘Magic’ parameter that allows you to alter the played arpeggiator/sequencer in a musical manner. The arpeggiator/sequencer can also work as a modulator and includes an additional free row that you can use to modulate other parts of BIT-2 by using the Modulation Matrix.

The AMP section of BIT-2 has been expanded with multiple distortion options and all are at a per ‘voice’ level, avoiding ugly sounds if you play chords.  An addition of a ‘Ribbon Controller’ found in the lowest section of BIT-2’s GUI allows you to change multiple parameters in a dynamic way using your mouse or an external MIDI controller.

Finally, the finishing touch for BIT-2 is of course the FX section. Some superb-sounding FX have been added and improved. Our top-notch Reverb is also included inside BIT-2 which means you won’t have to go outboard for adding reverb.
