This is one nice looking little effect box that’s great for bit reduction effects! It’s based on 8 bit AD/ACs and features effects such as filters, delays and waveshapers. It also has 16 preset slots to store your favorite settings to for instant recall. All in all, this is just one of those things that speaks for itself, so I’ve included video and audio demos from OTO so you can judge for yourself!

OTO Biscuit is available from Big City Music.

Save all the BISCUIT functions (bit status, pots positions, effects and filter settings) in one of its 16 presets.

You can also save as many presets as you like on your computer using the Preset Dump function (MIDI SysEx).
