Dreadbox Kinematic VCA-Based Compressor Pedal

A Highly-Tweakable Compressor, Envelope Filter & Overdrive — All in a Single Stompbox!

Written by

Elliot Stent

Greek synth wizards Dreadbox have taken their first step into the realm of effects pedals, with their retro-styled Lethargy, Darkness & Kinematic stompboxes!

The Kinematic is a VCA-based compressor and envelope filter suitable for guitars, basses, synthesisers and even drum machines — with eurorack patch compatibility too. Embellishing your tones with vintage-esque analogue squeeze, the Dreadbox Kinematic's built-in overdrive circuit also allows you to dramatically distort any dry or anaemic-sounding signal with saturated, hair-raising gain!

Key Features

  • Fully-analogue, VCA-based compressor with band-boost filter and extreme compression ratio.
  • Envelope filter and low-pass filter with slow envelope curve.
  • Post-diode overdrive circuit adds musical grit to any instrument signal.
  • Level boost — up to +18dB on tap!
  • 3 patch points make this unit perfect for modular synth fans.
