RS808 Rimshot & Claves - 4HP


The RS808 comes with two switches that give a total of 4 different posiitions: two are the classic Rimshot and Clavs sound 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 controls knobs were added, each have different 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. The RS808 is an exact reproduction of the original circuit which sounds like a fresh machine comming of the assembly line back in the 80's. 

Compatible with all the other drums in this series, the RS808 includes a hot modular level output gain stage capable of producing signals that can be easily distored if desired. On the inputs, wehave designed a dual-input pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger the RS808 with trigger/gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers, or any other pulse/clock sources. This eleimates the need to shape pulse 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 real analog drums.
