1010 MusicBitbox Micro Eight-Channel Sampler
1010 Music Bitbox Micro
The Bitbox Micro from 1010 Music is a smaller sibling of the powerful Bitbox, providing the same kind of deep sampling capabilities, but taking up much less real estate. The 2" touch screen allows for hands-on control of your samples and deep editing possibilities. There are eight sample pads which can even support multi-sampling and granular synthesis style sample playback. Built in reverb and delay add space and dimension to your samples. Not only can the Bitbox Micro interface with other Eurorack gear, a built-in MIDI to CV converter allows you full control with external MIDI controllers. Samples can be loaded via MicroSD card making it easy to swap out samples. If you're looking for a fantastic sampler module, the Bitbox Micro is a great solution with incredible power and easy to use interface.

The Brenso is a dual oscillator capable of frequency and amplitude modulation as well as the ability to sync the oscillators to each other. There is also a built in wave shaper that allows you to dynamically control harmonics. The wave shaper section can also be used as a VCA, this allows you to just add an envelope generator and have a complete synth voice. In this video we used the Frap Tools Falistri to generate envelopes to modulate the amplitude and FM amount. One of the patches uses a little bit of filtering from the new version of the Mutable Instruments Ripples. Using a sequencer like the 0-CTRL for this type of synth voice works well since you can control the pitch as well as other parameters. We also added some modulation with the XAOC Batumi quad LFO.
The drum sounds are all samples from the new 1010 Music Bitbox Micro which is a smaller version of the original Bitbox, even though it is smaller it still has 8 channels and is a good option to add sampling to your eurorack modular. The drums are sequenced by the Pam’s New Workout used as a clock divider.
