8bit Synthesizer

miniBit, Chiptune and 8bit Plugin Synthesizer - GUI

Chiptune Synth

miniBit is an 8-bit/chiptune style synthesizer plugin 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 bitcrusher, you can create even more noisy and retro sounds.

miniBit 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 chip tune synth.

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.
