Crumar Bit One

images at this auction
"The Bit One is a 6 voice programmable polyphonic analog synthesizer with digital control that rivals the Roland Juno-106 synthesizer.
The 61-note keyboard is equipped with velocity which is a rare option among similar synths!
The 2 computer controlled oscillators, 6 VCF filters, 6 VCAs and 2 LFOs each per voice, easy hands-on editing and a double/split mode keyboard make this one phatt analog polysynth!.
Several keyboard modes are provided; you can split the keyboard, or layer two sounds (double). There's even a very cool Unison button that makes for some excellent, fat sounds. The pitch and mod wheels are above the keyboard, and on top of each other, as opposed to a more traditional side-by-side - for this reason, the Bit One is a nice, compact five-octave synthesizer.
