Didn't see a thread for it. Out now, only 399 pounds. Looks ace!

It also works with a usb stick instead of those tiny, but expensive, mini-disks.

CV sampling sounds amazing. Has that been done in eurorack before?

Yes. Most euro samplers could/can sample CV. Even the discontinued MN Phonogene could do that. I can't really think of any which can't sample CV...

Fucked up "songs". A real demo with someone explaining would be nice.

I think a DivKid video might be on the way.

Haha, yea it would drive me crazy if it weren't for the fact that i already had a 7 hp module from Bastl. So this will put my rack back in balance once again. And that's my justification for purchase. 8-)

Bens Video is awesome.
Great grooves he has there going !
The unit seems to come with really nice samples.


........only 3CV inputs is a drawback for me though.
For common single sample plays is something with a real screen more ideal in my book
just got the bitbox 2 days ago. Guess i´m fine so.......my wallet says thanky thanky
/GAS self-defending post :hihi:




nice to see how eurorack is moving in nice directions ;)
For sale / reduced prices ( swiss (we are NON-EU)/ in case it makes sense_ EU/WW)(CHF +- = $):
lowered prices: Dotcom Q960: 650.- / Q119: 420 / ( i also have one or much likely two 19" Frames)
ATV A-Frame incl. Accu and Bag: 830.-, like new, quasi unused.

Does anyone with hands-on experience know which is correct? I've been in a minor editing skirmish on ModularGrid over this issue.

Matthew from ALM told me it was 19hp just a few days ago. It is strange it says 21hp on the ALM page...

from divkid screencap, squid is 385 px W x 465 px H; at a known euro panel height of 128.5 mm, the width is therefore 20.943 HP.

19hp was an unfortunate typo. 21hp is correct. I've updated manual+web pages etc and informed stockists so should now mostly be correct. Apologies for confusion!

Such a useful feature

Good effort :)
