BIM - Delay Unit

OTO Machines

OTO Machines BIM is a 12-bit stereo delay unit inspired by renowned studio delay processors built in the early 80’s. A predominantly analog processing unit, the BIM uses 12-bit AD/DA converters to switch the signal to digital for the delay, resulting in signal degradation and a damp, dark aesthetic to processed sound that achieves far more than with a purely digital system.

The BIM’s uses are especially pronounced when sounds are feedbacked multiple times through the full system. With modern features including stereo processing, user-programmable presets, MIDI control and more, the BIM is a perfect example of marrying digital and analogue worlds. 

Equally perfect for live performative use as it is in the studio, this is an incredible musical delay processor with a broad sweep of uses.
