the mbd is really two modules in one: a feature-rich analogue bassdrum synthesis module and an aggressive voltage controlled distortion effect. the distortion features uv purple leds as hard clipping diodes and
optocoupler-based voltage control of the distortion amount. the distortion can be used to process external signals at the same time as synthesizing percussive sounds.
entirely analogue bassdrum circuitry capable of vintage tr-808 sounds
built in distortion effect (batteryacid topology) with modular level output levels
distortion accepts external inputs when not being used with bassdrum (great for acid synth leads)
voltage control of distortion amount
voltage control of decay from short hits to long "oooomphs"
voltage control of pitch (not v/oct) from subsonic bass frequencies to high tom drum sounds
non-invasive analogue vactrols used for voltage control, so, vintage sounds can still be had
completely redesigned, hi-fi signal chain spares no expense by replacing cheap transistor amplifiers with low noise opamp equivalents
dial in super hot, eurorack modular level output levels (up to 20vp-p!)
current draw: +55ma, -45ma @ 12v
