"Updated version of the circuit bent DD10.

Sequenced via MIDI from propellerhead reason.

It can also be synced to midi clock if you want to program patterns and run them internally.

Replacing the original distortion found in the older works with a 'ruiner' hybrid ring modulator / distortion which gives it greater command of and a more dynamic range

"A quick & dirty demo of the PDS1002 pedal I'm passing on.. With sounds from TR606.
