  • Image 1 of EarthQuaker Devices Bit Commander Analog Octave Synth Pedal V2 - SKU# EQDBC-V2 : Product Type Effects & Signal Processors : Elderly Instruments
    The EarthQuaker Devices Bit Commander is a monophonic analog guitar synthesizer with four octaves of vintage square wave synth tones. Its no-nonsense interface makes it easy to add or subtract octaves to create a wide variety of sounds without having to dial in envelopes or oscillators. Ripping sub-octave thump, pulsing octave down, a lightly squared base tone and a swelling transformer based octave up all join together to make a single guitar sound like an army of olde tyme synths.
    The exact appearance of this item may vary.

Controls:
 

  • Level: Master volume
  • Filter: Tone control more highs clockwise, more warmth counterclockwise
  • Base: Squared input signal level
  • Sub: Two octaves down level
  • Down 1: One octave down level
  • Up 1: One octave up level

Tech Specs:
 

  • Dimensions: 4.75 x 2.50 x 2.25 in. (121 x 64 x 57 mm) with knobs
  • Current Draw: 25 mA
  • Input Impedance: 50 kΩ
  • Output Impedance: <500 Ω
  • Switching
  • This device is true bypass and uses electronic relay-based switching. Audio will not pass without power.
  • Power: This device takes a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. We always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. DO NOT RUN AT HIGHER VOLTAGES!
