Tiptop have added extra features that bring the classic TR-808 cowbell sound right up to date and perfectly suited to the modular format. Pitch modulation, LFO (with control over rate and depth), independent accent levels, a high-powered gain stage, and a dual-input pulse-shaper: all have been added without compromising the signature sound of the TRE-808’s spacey bell.
The CB808 sound is generated by two square wave oscillators that go through band pass filtering and then get mixed together. It’s a simple analogue circuit with a very cool output. What makes the 808 cowbell so well known is that it doesn’t feel constant, but rather slightly spacey. The internal pitch-modulating LFO that Tiptop added takes this effect even further, but stays within the bounds of the 808 sound, keeping it very musical and easy to play with.
The CB808 includes a high-powered output gain stage capable of producing hot signals that can be easily distorted if desired. On the inputs, Tiptop have designed a dual-input pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger the CB808 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 and ensures the same stable sound at peak power, regardless of your pulse source. All these unique features make integrating this legendary sound generator into your modular synth easy, unleashing the power of real analogue drums.
