The new bC9 looks fantastic! Here are the specs:

Based on the popular bC8 synthesiser/sequencer, the bC9 offers the same astonishing range of sounds with the ability to externally modulate any possible combination of the eight main control knobs, including the infamous ‘patch’ control; a ninth knob controls the depth of external modulation…

The semi-transparent frosted body diffuses the light from the ten LED’s that logically show various conditions and processes (warning: mesmerising).

  • CV input: 3.5mm jack socket (near yellow VCO knob): 0v to 5v
  • Trig input: 3.5mm jack socket (centre): 2 to 10v
  • Audio out: 3.5mm stereo jack socket (near grey volume knob), drives headphones.
10 separate LED’s of various colours. Aside from showing the current status of the
LFO, envelope generator, battery and external trigger. The LED’s also show the
modulation destinations when the black push-button is pressed.
External CV voltage shown by the ‘analog’ LED by the black push-button.

  • 1st knob, yellow - VCO frequency
  • 2nd knob, yellow - VCO & LFO modulation depth control
  • 3rd knob, blue - Waveshapes for VCO and LFO
  • 4th knob, blue - LFO speed
  • 5th knob, green - External CV modulation depth control
  • 6th knob, red - Attack, envelope generator
  • 7th knob, red - Release, envelope generator
  • 8th knob, green - Patch control
  • 9th knob, grey - Volume control
  • On-Off switch (right-hand toggle)
  • Envelope mode (left-hand toggle)
  • >up=auto-repeat, centre=single shot (no sustain), down=single shot (sustain
  • allowed).
  • Black push-button
  • >press to see and modify the external modulation-destination.
  • Red push-button
  • >triggers envelope generator, effectively in parallel with external trigger

Before giving Ben Fisher any money please read this thread - all of it.


Also try looking him up on Google.

The Chimera forum is moderated and censored by Mr Fisher so only tells half the story.

Caveat Emptor.

And the often asked for refund is still outstanding..

Maybe the orders from the bc9 will get me my refund though.. ;-)

Best of luck..
