EarthQuaker Devices Bit Commander Analog Octave Synth
The EarthQuaker Devices Bit Commander is a monophonic analog guitar synth that delivers vintage square wave tones. Easily tweak octaves without complex settings for a range of sounds. Transform your guitar into a synth army with sub-octave thump, pulsing octave down, squared base tone, and swelling transformer-based octave up.
Like all analog octave effects, there are some basic rules to follow that will get you the most enjoyment from your Bit Commander V2. Use the neck pickup and play single notes. The best tracking occurs from the 7th fret up on all the strings. Below the 7th will still track but there will be occasional glitches and stutters. The lower the note, the harder it is for the Bit Commander V2 to register. The use of Bass and lower registers on keyboards will yield unexpected, sometimes pleasing, sometimes disgusting results. These are not mistakes or flaws, it is the nature of analog octaves.
