Dreadbox Hades Bass Synth

Hades, from Dreadbox, is a desktop Bass Synthesizer with a small 3.5mm patch bay. It is the sibling of the Erebus, Dreadbox's other desktop synthesizer. The Hades is a single oscillator synth with Sawtooth and Square waveshapes. It also includes two sub oscillators, one -1 oct, and the other -2 oct. These sub oscillators are what gives the Hades its powerful low end capabilities. There are small knobs to adjust the glide amount and the pulse width. The filter is a 3-pole, -18dB/Octave lowpass filter, slightly modeled after the TB-303 filter. It has cutoff and resonance controls. The VCA and Drive circuits are both discrete OTA circuits, with the Drive causing overdrive to extreme distortion. Two Envelopes are available, an ADSR which can be assigned to filter cutoff, and an Attack-Release envelope hardwired to the VCA. A triangle wave LFO is available for modulation. The Hades can track 5 octaves with MIDI, and unlimited tracking via CV. With 8 patch points, it is also a great for interfacing with other patchable gear such as Eurorack modular equipment.
