Italian designed and built mid 80s synth from Crumar (rebadged for the UK market as Chase).

It has a lovely warm sound and is in good condition. Definitely collectable as there aren't many of these around. Downsizing my synth collection so on the market it goes. It's been in a smoke free studio and has couple of superficial scratches but it's fully functional. Unfortunately the manual has been lost along the way but it's a doddle to programme.

Open to offers.

More info: The Bit 99 is one of the first synthesizers from which traditional knobs and sliders have been banned. The edit method is easy to understand. The Bit 99 can produce a wide variety of sounds but bass sounds are the best. With a polyphony of three notes, instead of six normally, you can have two sounds layered! Possibilities are almost unlimited and if the 99 patches are not enough you can save the data to tape and load it when you want! This synth was used by 808 State but the synth sounds a lot like Orbital's "In-sides" album. A rackmount version was also released, called the Bit-01.
