"Introducing the KickMaiker 'kick drum designer' patch for Patchblocks and 919Tom patch. KickMaiker is available from the Patchblocks forum ( and the 919Tom ( Both also in the Patchblocks Community database.

RECORDING: 2xPatchblocks -into- Passive Mixer -into- Korg Electribe Aux-input -out- Electribe main outputs. (Sorry about the hiss - that's coming from the Electribe)

This patch was inspired by the certain well known plugin for Kick Designer VST that is popular with electronic music producers.
I wanted something similar, but hardware so I designed my own for Patchblocks!
