    The Lads: Virtual Analogue Sequenced Percussion


    'The Lads' is a set of 5 sequenced Virtual Analogue percussion devices for Max for Live. Kevin the Kick is based on the Bridged-T topology of a ringing bandpass filter using Surreal Machines' Sallen-Key filter. Keith the Kick is based on the Sine Shaped Triangle Wave topology delivering a harder edge than Kevin. Henry the HiHat is based on Schmitt Trigger topology - 6 square waves with circuit bent features accessible from the UI. Sidney the Snare uses two Bridged-T circuits, an octave apart, for the body and a noise generator, all with plenty of control and Thomas the TomTom is a Bridged-T with added noise. All Bridged-Ts feature Surreal Machines' rather wonderful Sallen-Key filter. All of 'The Lads' feature one of Surreal Machines' ZDF LoPass filters on the output with a bit of drive/shape. All of 'The Lads' feature a step sequencer based on K-Teck's Adlais.
