Chimera Bc-8

Younger sibling to the bC16 the new Chimera bC8 lacks the patchable banana jacks but has a whole some sweet sequencing features –

A powerful DSP generates a VCO and LFO (similar to the bC16), also the DSP performs VCF and VCA functions as well controlling the patching of functions to each other and running a simple but powerful ‘ one button’ pattern sequencer. bC8 is controlled by eight rotary knobs and one push-button. Four LED’s indicate battery status, LFO and EG level and other mode elements. bC8 pattern sequencer records the timing/duration of the button presses and all the knob settings for each action, these can be altered live for acid loops etc…

… and of course it’s cuter than a bug’s ear! (I’m liking this for-factor more and more) – Chimera bC8 [via Music Thing]
