Basimilus Iteritas Alter


Basimilus Iteritas Alter



Basimilus Iteritas Alter is a 10HP parameterized digital drum synthesizer with its roots in the analog world. At its heart, it is a simple six-oscillator additive synthesizer with adjustable waveform, harmonic spread and decay. Adjustable attack including a noise oscillator is also included. These are summed and fed into an infinifolder for crunch and variety. Basimilus Iteritas Alter is an improved version of the discontinued Basimilus Iteritas. BIA is 2HP smaller, includes CV of switches, adds an third mode, and pitch range and knobs now offset rather than attenuate.

"quirky in all the right ways" - DJ Surgeon

"off the hook" - Richard Devine

"[The BIA has given me a] feeling of self-worth and inclusion that's actually way better than having friends.” - Giordan Postorino

“Having a bank of of BI’s at my disposal in my DAW is like commanding a Mechanized Percussion Kill Squad.” - Keith Hillebrandt (NIN, David Bowie, etc.)

“BIA is one of my all-time favorite modules. It's provided kicks and bass lines on lots of my tracks, plus the occasional lead, snare, or sound effect. It's one of those rare modules where every combination of settings sounds so good the only problem is actually deciding on a sonic direction to pursue. Wish I had five!” - Andrew Huang
