The Bit Commander is a monophonic analog synthesizer that packs four octaves of ripping square-wave voices plus a rich filter section into an enclosure smaller than the Game Boy you got for your birthday way back in ’92.

Dialing in the perfect sound is easier than Tetris, but the array of sounds is just as deep. The Bit Commander’s Base control takes your input signal - guitar, bass, keys, whatever - and shoots it through an 8-bit warp zone, so it comes out at the final boss level with a raunchy square wave fuzz that’ll fit right into your next chiptune symphony. From there, the three octave voices labeled Sub, Down, and Up power up your tone across three additional octaves, for a total of four, giving your sound more extra lives than any cheat code.

Sub takes your input down two octaves, unleashing a rumbling subharmonic thump tougher than the first level of Contra.

Down drops your instrument down one octave below the input, putting classic synth bass tones at your fingertips.

Up introduces a screamin’ transformer-based analog octave up, perfect for shreddin’ like the fretboard Rad Racer you are.

The Bit Commander’s Filter control adjusts the overall frequency cutoff from muted sub-bass rumble, to screamin’ lead sounds that cut through the mix like Ninja Gaiden.

Each and every Bit Commander is built with infinite lives by a harem of Game Genies in Akron, Ohio, USA.

The Bit Commander uses silent relay-based soft touch switching. Audio will not pass without power.
