Meris Ottobit Jr. - Audio in >> Video Game Out
A Maniacal Little Machine, inspired by vintage gaming consoles.
Arcade Dreams Reborn
Did I stutter? Yes I did. An era when silicon defined sonics that were burned in our memory for years… Ottobit Jr. brings those sounds directly to your pedalboard.
"I’ve been dreaming of designing the perfect Stutter effect for a long time. I gave the Ottobit Jr. the ability to detect your pick attack and align that with the current tempo to always keep its Stutter effect musical."
"You want games? I'll give you games."
To call it a bitcrusher would be an insult. The triggered stutter and pitch/filter/crush sequencers take you to side scrolling, coin collecting maze worlds. Add in a resonant low pass that competes with the best analog synths and grandpa SID would be proud.
Changes the sample rate from 48 Hz to 48 kHz.
Alt Function: Step 1 First step of the sequencer
Changes the cutoff frequency of custom filter.
Alt Function: Step 2 Second step of the sequencer
Changes the bit depth from 1 bit to 24 bits.
Alt Function: Step 3 Third step of the sequencer
Changes the play speed and length of the stutter.
Alt Function: Step 4 Fourth step of the sequencer
Sequencer Play Mode
Sets Sequencer to Play Once, Play Twice, Play 4 Times, Play 8 Times, or Play Continuously.
Alt Function: Step 5 Fifth step of the sequencer
Sets the sequencer speed as a multiple of the tap tempo.
Alt Function: Step 6 Sixth step of the sequencer
Tap LED / Alt Function Switch
Blinks at tap tempo rate. Alt Functions are only accessible when ALT (HOLD) switch is held.
Sets the speed and the timing of the Sequencer and the Stutter. Hold to freeze the Stutter Buffer.
Bypass LED / Sequencer Type Switch
Switch LED Indicates bypass status. Small LEDs indicate active sequencer type. Both small LEDs OFF indicates sample rate sequencer active.
Processes signal when LED is ON, passes dry signal entirely in analog (buffered or relay) when OFF.
