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. This emulation also crmuar the Bit 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 dual loaded.

Additional information provided by Telmo J. A rackmount version was also released, called the Bit It has some very nice mod features though, it was fun to emulate and hopefully enjoyable to play with. As bristol is stereo then each layer is allocated to the left or right channel.

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.

This has the rather strange side effect of single mode with 6 voices. It had a keyboard sensitivity pot however that is achieved separately with bristol using velocity curves from the MIDI control settings. 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. Audio Clip 1 Here’s a simple demo pattern from the Breakthru web site. 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.

All the Bit emulations recognise extened parameters. The envelopes were touch sensitive for gain but also for attack giving plenty of expressive capabilities. The first is the bit-1 with a limited parameter set as it only had 64 byte memories. It had 99 memories, and the ones from 75 and above were for Split and Layered memories. A quick rundown of the features: The front panel gain controls are also not saved in the memory and default to 0.

The Compare button can be used to flip between the rcumar loaded value and the current modified one to cfumar you to see if you prefer the sound before or after the modification. With a polyphony of three notes, instead of six normally, you can have two sounds layered! Having only one filter meant that with key tracking enabled the filter would open up as different keys were pressed, wildly changing the sound of active notes. Last display should show EE Extended Entry 5.


Those that are not displayed can only be accessed from the data entry buttons.

When the Decay on brass section is at “0” do you lose most of the control of your This came out at the same time as the DX-7 but for half the price and having the split and layer facilities won it several awards that would otherwise have gone to the incredibly innovative DX. 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.

The oscillators can work slightly differently as well. Bristol will also emulate a bit and a Bitm2 that includes some parameter on the front panel that 9 not available on the original. Keyboard – 61 full size keys, slightly weighted. Then, each layer can be simultaneously edited and just needs to be parked and saved separately.

Per default the emulation, as per the original, will not allow voice editing in Split or Layer modes however it can be enabled with DE You can configure stereo from the extended data entry ID and which give the LR channel panning for ‘Mono’ setting, it should default to hard left and right panning. This exits the extended mode. Bristol carries no logo.

All the emulations have the same parameters, some require you use the data entry controls to access them. The engine uses the exact same algorithm for all emulations but the GUI presents different sets of parameters on the front panel. Bristol can have all memories as Split or Layer. It is advised however not required that this dual loading is done from the lower layer.


The bristol envelope, when configured for velocity sensitive parameters other than just gain will also affect the attack rate. 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 crumsr. The Bit 99 can produce bkt wide variety of sounds but bass sounds are the best.

For the other emulations they are accessible from the address entry buttons. Bristol is free software. This is because they are implemented in the bristol MIDI library and not the emulation. The implementation actually uses two different stereo mixes selectable with the Stereo button:
