BASTL Instruments bitRanger Analog Logic Computer

    Description
    The bitRanger is a patchable analog logic computer which sculpts sonic worlds ranging from data noise to melodic arpeggios. While being a handheld standalone synth it is also right at home in the music studio. Extensive connectivity makes it so flexible that it can connect to almost anything: CV control its unique sound, sync it with drum machines and sequencers or use it as an algorithmic CV / GATE pattern generator.

    The patchbay of the bitRanger is a place for exploration where you can simply connect outputs to inputs to see what happens. This can be done methodically or with complete experimental abandon. Go nuts! Battery Power and a built in speaker make the bitRanger totally portable. Tweak it’s 4 knobs, 8 switches and more than 100 patch points in the woods, on the beach, on a train and in the studio.

    FEATURES

    - LFO clock oscillator for rhytmical modulation
    - VCO oscillator is synced to the HFO oscillator
    - 4 modes of operation selectable by 2 switches
    - built in speaker with volume control
    - 9V DC center positive power supply input
    - 9V battery compartment from the bottom
    - <20mA power draw on headphones, <60mA with speaker (minimum 20 hours on battery)
    - On /Off switch
    - expansion connector
    - package includes 3 photo resistors – make your oscillators respond to light by plugging these into the Bend socket

    PATCHBAY

    - 118 jumper cable patch points
    - each oscillator has 3 differently slewed CV inputs, sync inputs, rate knob and bend points
    - Divider Bits section – use clocks at different speed to create patterns
    - Adventure Bits section adds irregular rhytmical elements
    - MUX 1 and MUX 2 input sections to modulate data loops and waveforms
    - stereophonic output from MUX 1 and MUX2 sections
    - BYTE CV section is R2R DAC converter which takes bits and converts them to CV
    - DATA modulation section witch a switch adds more flavour
    - Utility Belt section adds advanced features
    - Left and Right audio override section

    EXTERNAL CONNECTIVITY

    - 3.5mm stereophonic headphone output
    - Clock Input to sync the LFO oscillator
    - Clock Output with selectable LFO division (2 or 32)
    - CV Output from the BYTE DAC section
    - CV Input for the VCO
    - CV In and CV Out connectors can be routed to dedicated patch points on the patchbay
