Bastl Instruments bitRanger

USED
$175.00
This bitRanger is fully functional and in good condition.  It includes a collection of patch cables and 3 photo resistors, but does not include a power supply (9v DC Positive Tip)

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
