Hyde was designed to be used with line level equipment and modular systems. As the name suggests, it is essentially the dirty channel from the large Jekyll N Hyde Dual Filter Box. However, there are some new features waiting to be discovered.
Audio material fed to Hyde first runs through a powerful distortion circuit. Next in line is the resonant diode ladder filter. Its cutoff frequency can be modulated via the built-in LFO and two CV inputs (0 to +5 V). One of the voltage control channels works inverted. Another CV connector makes it possible to influence the resonance. In addition to the diode ladder filter, there is a simple, voltage-controllable high-pass filter.
Last but not least, there is an overdrive and a clipping / saturation stage in the Hyde’s signal path. Thanks to a True Bypass switch, you can quickly (de)activate the little monster.
A 18 V DC power supply is included. (Polarity: Tip = Minus / Ring = Plus)
150 mA are drawn from the power supply.
