With TipTop's RS808 the Rimshot and Claves of Roland's TR-808 are improved as Eurorack module with additional parameters like Snap and Pitch. Not only the Claves and Rimshot can be selected with switches but also two more percussive sounds.
Exact clone of the TR-808's circuitry producing the rimshot and claves sounds but with additional parameters to make the module more flexible. Besides the two original sounds you can select two more sounds with switches:
- both switches up = rimshot
- both switches down = claves
- left switch up, right switch down = mix of rimshot and claves
- left switch down, right switch up = short clicky sound
The gate input is normalized to the dynamic accent input. If nothing is patched to the accent input the bass drum will be played with highest velocity. On the other hand this allows you for adjusting the output level with the accent control. The RS808 has controls for Level, Snap, Pitch and Accent level.
