Tiptop Audio Eurorack TR-808 Rimshot and Claves Circuits Module

Tiptop Audio RS808 is the Roland TR-808's analog rimshot and claves sound generator in eurorack format. It's a low-cost module that brings back that classic sound, but with even more variation and control, continuing to expand your Tiptop Audio modular drum machine.

RS808 comes with two switches that give a total of four different positions: two are the classic rimshot and claves sounds as found on the original, and two are unique to the RS808 module, adding a range of snappy 'click' sounds the circuit is capable of producing. Two control knobs were added; each have different a effect for the selected sound. In general, these controls can be categorized as Pitch and Snap as they control the frequency of the oscillator and decay of the envelope generator. RS808 is an exact reproduction of the original circuit which sounds like a fresh machine coming off the assembly line back in the 80s.

Compatible with all the other drums in this series, RS808 includes a hot modular level output gain stage capable of producing signals that can be easily distorted if desired. On the inputs, Tiptop Audio designed a dual-input pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger RS808 with trigger/gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers or any other pulse/clock sources. This eliminates the need to shape pulses sent to the module, ensuring the same stable sound at peak power regardless of your pulse source. These distinctive features make integrating this legendary sound generator into your modular synth easy, unleashing the power of real analog drums.
