The MA808 is a must have sound with its fluffy, harmonically rich presence that greatly enhances the dynamics of Hi-hat sounds in the groove. The Attack control knob can turn the sound from a sharp edged Hi-hat up to a slow rise exponential attack Maracas sound; a dot on the scale indicates the original 808 set position. The MA808 also provides the continuous analog white noise generator of the 808 machine: a fully spectrum of harmonics ideal for use as a starting point for patching your own drum sounds or for general use of white noise. The MA808 is an exact reproduction of the original circuit which sounds like a fresh machine coming off the assembly line back in the 80's
Compatible with all the other drums in this series, the MA808 includes a hot modular level output gain stage. On the inputs, we have designed a dual-input pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger the MA808 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.
