About the circuit:

  • Like the TR-808, CR78 and others, Kevin's circuit is based around a 'ringing' band-pass filter

  • Kevin's filter was  designed by the lovely people at Surreal Machines and is a two pole bandpass Sallen Key zero delay feedback filter (ZDFF)

  • Kevin is NOT a TR-808 emulation but does share similar sound characteristics
