About the circuit:

  • Like the TR-909, Keith's circuit is based around a waveshaped triangle waveform
  • Keith has noise and a click added to intensify the attack portion of the sound
  • No samples were used in the creation of any of 'The Lads'
  • Keith is NOT a TR-909 emulation but does share similar sound characteristics

 

Keith's Controls

Kick Body - This is the fundamental tone of the kick

  1. Freq - Pitch - from a window-rattling 35Hz to super fast 75Hz

  2. Curve - Decay characteristic - from a tight exponential curve to an overblown logarithmic curve

  3. Decay - From a deep 'Click' to just about long enough

Kick Peak - This creates a thump, or a knock, at the start of the kick

  1. Freq - Starting pitch of the kick, before it swoops down upon the floor

  2. Time - The time taken for the pitch to swoop down - 1ms - 50ms

  3. Slope - An exponential curve applied to the pitch sweep = softer/harder - kind of :/ 


The sequencer

Finally, a grown up percussion sequencer that is simple to use, fast and creativity enhancing

Don't be fooled by its benign appearance, this sequencer can supercharge your beats in seconds

Here's a video exploring the sequencer's functions



Global Controls

Housekeeping stuff

  1. The K-Teck logo

  2. Device title and version number

  3. Preset display - for storing and recalling your presets

Global tone controls

  1. HiPass - A High Pass filter to remove too much sub or get a nasty click/knock

  2. LoPass - A lowpass filter designed by Surreal Machines to remove excess top end and subbify

  3. Gain - Output volume - also drives into that Surreal Machines Low Pass filter for extra oomph
