Bitbox mk2 black edition – Intuitive Sampling Module


Now available in black! The bitbox mk2 delivers powerful sampling and mangling for Eurorack. With this module you can add recording, sample playback, clip launching, slicing, granular sounds and musically intelligent looping capabilities to your Eurorack rig. With a 3.5 inch touchscreen, bitbox mk2 makes easy work of selecting, editing, and tweaking your samples. You can stream large samples of up to 4 GB file size straight from the microSD card. Interact with other musical components via CV and MIDI. Tweak your configurations to get them just right, then save them to multiple presets for future reuse. With the new bitbox mk2 hardware, you can now do more with the new more powerful processor.

You can also download fxbox and synthbox firmware from our forum and install it on your bitbox mk2 to get three modules in one.  Swap to the fxbox firmware to get effects processing, or the synthbox firmware to play with wavetable synthesis.

Next Generation Sampling Module for Eurorack

The bitbox mk2 is a follow up to our successful bitbox module.  Do more with bitbox mk2’s more powerful processor and improved touch screen.  This module has all of the features of the original bitbox and adds effects and mixing capabilities that take advantage of the faster and more powerful processor.

Sample Playback

  • Play up to 24 polyphonic notes when your samples fit in the 64 MB of internal memory or up to 8 larger samples streaming directly from the microSD card
  • Configure 16 sample pads per preset as single or multi-samples, clips, slicers, granular or new recordings
  • Stream long samples from the microSD card with a max sample size of 4 GB, which can be many hours of audio
  • Trigger samples with the touch screen, CV gate inputs, or MIDI input
  • Use MIDI to control sample recording
  • Use MIDI for polyphonic playback of samples or slices
  • Control how samples start and stop by choosing from trigger, toggle, and gate launch modes
  • Tweak playback through a variety of sample parameters, including start position, length, pitch, level, filter, loop mode, launch quantization, ADSR, Exclusive Grouping, clip synchronization, slice placement and sequencing, grain size, grain spread, grain count, and MIDI note and channel mapping

Sample Recording

Record Eurorack level audio straight into the module:

  • Record samples from a stereo audio input pair
  • Configure each pad for stereo or mono recording with the option to synchronize the start and stop times to clock inputs
  • Trigger recording via audio level threshold
  • Create perfectly sized loops by setting the recording length
  • Enable immediate playback after recording for live looping capabilities
  • Make recordings up to 4 hours in length
  • Store recorded samples as WAV files on the micro SD card then remove the card to transfer them to your computer

Sample Modes

Find creative ways of using your samples with our 5 sample playback modes:

  • Trigger one shots or launch loops using sample mode
  • Load a folder of samples into a sample mode pad to improve the quality of the pitch shifting when playing a sample chromatically or to trigger different samples with each note
  • Play time-synchronized loops with constant pitch time shifting in clip mode
  • Skip between slices of a WAV using slicer mode
  • Create rich textures and other worldly sounds with granular mode

External Control and Synchronization

  • Playback can be immediate or synchronized to internal clock, TRS clock in, or MIDI clock in and out
  • Trigger each pad independently through a dedicated gate input
  • Use MIDI to trigger pads via a note per pad
  • Play a single or multi-sample pad pitch shifted using MIDI notes or CV
  • Trigger different sample slices using MIDI notes or CV
  • Modulate a wide variety of sample parameters through the MIDI input and up to 8 CV signals
  • Quickly set up MIDI modulation using Learn mode — no need to look up CC numbers

Module Features

  • Use the 3.5″ diagonal touch screen to intuitively explore the features of the module
  • Get more creative with double the processing power of the original bitbox
  • Fill out your sound with reverb and delay
  • Import or export WAV files with your Mac or PC using a microSD card
  • Save and recall multiple presets
  • Increase your capacity with larger microSD cards
  • Select Flipped UI mode to mount the unit with the screen on the bottom and use the screen, knobs, buttons, and CV jacks as you normally would
