8-Bit Chiptune Synthesizer

MiniBit is an 8-bit/chiptune-style synthesizer virtual instrument that emulates the sound of 80s game consoles and retro computers.

It features a main oscillator with 18 waveforms paired with a sub-oscillator (a square wave pitched one octave below). The waveforms are not bandlimited and will produce aliasing. Furthermore, using the built-in bit crusher, you can create even more noisy and retro sounds. The new version also features a synced 8 Steps Stepper/Sequencer with multiple destinations.

From noisy, snare-like steps to ambient subs, MiniBit has many uses beyond what one expects from a chiptune synth.


Classic Consoles

MiniBit was inspired by the sound of classic game consoles and retro computers of the 80s and 90s. Some of the waveforms were carefully created and edited with an Amiga 1200, while others were meticulously recreated from the sounds of the best classic games that we have collected over the years.


Step Sequencer

MiniBit features an 8 steps sequencer that can be used to automate several parameters: pitch, volume, cutoff, resonance, waveform, and downsampling.

Sequencing the waveforms will generate sounds reminiscent of early trackers and wavetable synthesizers.

Each track can also be randomized using the dice buttons on the right.


Custom Waveforms

The Custom Waveform Editor features 32 steps and 8 waveform slots per preset.
You can draw your waveforms by clicking and dragging on the editor. You can also use the built-in examples as a starting point.

Each preset has its own set of custom waveforms, if you want to use a custom wave with another preset you can use the Copy/Paste buttons, or you can disable the Update Custom Waves in the global settings.

To open the Custom Waveform Editor select one of the Custom Waveforms from the Waveform monitor and click on the Editor button.
