Dreadbox Kinematic Compressor Hands-On Demo

This video, via Limbic Bits, offers a demo video of the Dreadbox Kinematic analog VCA-based compressor.

It features the Kinematic in combination with Elektron’s Model:Cycles, playing IDM, Electro and Dub Techno patterns through the Compressor, Filter and Drive Combo-Pedal.

Here’s what they have to say about the video:

“This video shows dreadbox’ compressor / filter / Drive combo. To be honest, this pedal didn’t catch my attention, when it was first introduced. But…

This one is a great addition to any live setup and also has a place in hybrid studios. It definitely fattens up the sound a lot but can be used quite subtly, too. Great for kicks, basses, and percussion but also as a more radical variation to tighten up a live mix. A shame, that it’s only mono. Nevertheless, a great pedal and my favorite out of their pedal line, so far.”

  1. cool thing about these pedals [the ones with the lfo out at least] is that you can use them as an oscillator. not a perfect one of course but they track and its funky.
