The Dreadbox KINEMATIC is an analogue VCA-based Compressor and Envelope Filter pedal suitable for fretted instruments and synthesizers. The built-in Post Diode distortion circuit allows for saturation up to extreme distortion.

It also features CV connectivity to enable patching with Eurorack modular systems, standalone sequencers or semi-modular synthesizers.


  • Full Analog VCA based Compressor
  • COMP COLOUR offers compression with band boost filter & extreme compression ratio
  • ENV FILTER is a 12db Lowpass Filter with Auto-wah (envelope follower)
  • Post Diode overdrive circuit (at end of signal path)
  • Level boost up to +18dB
  • “Amount” control to balance between the “Manual” knob’s setting and the LFO
  • CV input to modulate the filter frequency (via the “filter” input)
  • CV input for Level
  • CV output for the envelope signal

Useful Notes:

  • Kinematic is highly recommended for bass guitar.
