Product information "Retro Mechanical Labs - Jekyll n Hyde Dual Filter Box Serpa"

Jekyll N Hide is a dual distortion and filter box with a very distinctive sound. The first audio channel appears to be rather clean and voluminous, thanks to a restrained drive circuit and a transistor-ladder-circuit. In the second channel, you'll find a more powerful distortion and a crisp diode-ladder filter. On top of that, both audio paths feature overdrive and germanium clipping stages as well as an LFO. All in all, Jekyll N Hyde has a beefy, wonderfully musical sound. – Even with high distortion levels. By combining both channels, you can create great stereo effects.

At first glance, the two channels of the Jekyll N Hyde are identical. Right behind the inputs, you’ll find drive stages, followed by resonant low-pass filters, another set of drive circuits and clipping sections. The LFOs are adjustable in speed and modulation depth. They can be quickly (de)activated via switches. The LFOs influence the filter cutoff frequencies. CV inputs allow you to use external modulators as well.

In use, differences between the two audio channels become apparent very quickly. While Jekyll (channel 1) has a smooth sounding drive stage and offers a filter with classic transistor ladder character, Hyde (channel 2) features a drive circuit with significantly more distortion and typical diode ladder facets.

As the inputs of both channels are normalized, stereo effects can be easily achieved by feeding only one mono signal to the Jekyll N Hyde. The connection can be broken via a switch.

Jekyll N Hyde was designed to be used with synthesizers, drum computers and studio equipment.

The Serpa version is built into an aluminium housing instead of a wooden housing. Extras have also been added:

Each filter has a filter balance that changes the “Sustain” level of the audio and each filter now has a midrange boost knob. I’ve also added  slow drifting LFO outs in 1/8th in euro jacks. There is also a cross resonance feedback mod called “Misc” Its 3 position up/off/down. It adds a weird distortion to the resonance when the filter resonance is increased. It does this by sending the resonant feedback to both filters. Only works in stereo mode. Its odd but very cool.
