Depending on the customer requirements, Wave Idea will decide the type of controls to be found on expansion modules. The format of the Bitstream 3X expansion port is proprietary, there is no documentation available that may help you to build your own expansion module. This tool also ships with 4 mackie monitors which can be programmed to show all parameter names and values. The Hook mode is a software method to avoid jumps in value Since up to 21 different MIDI events can be assigned to each control of the Bitstream 3X, it may arrive that when you change group, the physical position of a control does not correspond anymore to its corresponding value, this may cause undesirable jump in value For instance, fader 1 is at physical position 10 in group 1, then you switch to group 2 and move fader 1 to position 30, when switching back to group 1, as soon as you will tweak fader 1, a jump will occur from position 30 to 10 To avoid this issue, the Bitstream 3X features a Hook mode The MIDI data are sent as soon as the physical position of the control corresponds to its value in the current group.


First impressions are good, but less-than-perfect integration with the latest software and poor construction let the Bitstream down. On the plus side, this means I’m happy in the box and currently unaffected by the need bitstrean buy a load of hardware synths.

Drum module MIDI control. No registered users and 0 guests. The Bitstream can be programmed from the front panel using its buttons and rotary encoder, but if you’re using it with a computer, it’s easier to set it up using the included software bltstream. Select here the desired tempo in BPMstempo is also available when pressing OK button and tweaking the rotary encoder – Tempo mode: An application note regarding this subject is available windos the download area.


To the right of these controls things get a little more interesting; towards the top of the panel there’s an LCD display reminiscent of those found on workstation keyboards. I don’t need to hear more I quite like it. Still, thanks to some foam padding, the Bitstream, its power supply and a USB cable can all fit in snugly, and bitztream case will be a godsend for people who gig regularly or move about a lot.
