The MIDI Bit functions by acting as a MIDI-to-voltage converter (MIDI "in" mode) and a voltage-to-MIDI converter (MIDI "out" mode). The MIDI Bit will show up in your DAW as a MIDI device.

The note range of the Bit is from C2 to C6. MIDI note C2 generates an output CV of 0.2V. Thereafter, the output CV increases by 1V/oct up to C6. Similar to the keyboard and micro sequencer Bits, this Bit has 2 outputs: a main bitSnap output that sends control voltages to other Bits and a TRIGGER OUT that sends a 5 volt signal to Bits when any MIDI note message is sent.
