Meris Ottobit 500-Series Bit Crusher

The Meris Ottobit is made in California with a premium analogue signal path and 24-bit AD/DA with 32 Bit floating point DSP. Along with bit reduction (both 8- and 16-bit) and sample rate decimation, Ottobit offers ring modulation, envelopes and LFO Modifiers and tap tempo control to trigger the envelopes.

Ottobit is a powerful creative tool for electronic musicians and producers, offering an unique collection of processing elements giving you absolute control over interesting textures, sweeping sample rate changes, tremelos, vibratos, vintage octavers and primal pitch shifting inspired by Kubrick’s use of the Information Rate Changer.

Ottobit will smash, crush and decimate your signal opening up a whole universe of aural possibilities. Its design is unique, granting you the power to make any sound source sound like early 8- or 16-bit video games soundtracks.
