Switched on Box

If you own a bitbox you can convert it to an fxbox or a synthbox, and vice versa. When you buy one of 1010music’s Series 1 Modules you get access to the firmware for all the modules in the Series.  Each Series 1 Module can run one set of firmware at a time, and can easily be converted to new firmware using the microSD card and downloads from forum.1010music.com.  Simply sign up for the forum, download the new firmware, and follow the instructions on the forum to convert or upgrade your module.

WHY CHOOSE ONE?

 When you buy a bitbox sampler today you can switch to the synthbox synthesizer tomorrow and the fxbox effects module next week.

STAY UP TO DATE

This also means that you can download new firmware to get the latest features for your module as they come out. For free.
