    The SD808 is based on the Roland TR-808's snare drum circuit, adapted for use in EuroRack format modular synthesizers and was designed to sound like a factory fresh 1980s TR-808 snare. The SD808 has added modern features such as independent accent levels, a high-powered gain stage, a dual-input pulse-shaper and an adjustable noise source, all without compromising the signature sound of the TR-808 snare.
    The SD808 sounds tight and extremely snappy because it's a true analogue module. The sound is made from three analogue sound generators mixed together: two oscillating sine waves and a noise source. The SD808's front panel controls have a lot of sweet spots with sounds that are not limited to snare drums, it can also create a wide variety of electronic percussive textures.
    The noise source generator in the original TR-808 machines were revised in later production batches, resulting in variations in sound across the production run. The SD808 uses this later, revised circuit to create a snare drum hit that is slightly darker, has more body and is more realistic. The SD808 includes a high-powered output gain stage allowing generation of an array of harmonised snare sounds with even tighter attacks. On the inputs, Tiptop have designed a dual-input pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger the SD808 with Trigger/Gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers or any other pulse/clock sources. This saves you the need to shape the pulses sent to the module and ensuring the same stable sound at its peak power, regardless of the differences in your pulse source.
