The HATS808 is based on the TR-808’s analogue closed and open hi-hats circuitry and is designed to sound like a factory fresh machine. Tiptop have added additional features to exploit the modular format such as independent accent levels, a high-powered gain stage and a dual input pulse-shaper. Filter Q and VC-Q knobs have been added to the main band-pass filter for additional tuning and to allow you to generate crushed tones and self-oscillation at the control’s maximum position. All of these new features have been added without compromising the signature tone of the TR-808 hi-hats.
The HATS808 characteristic sound is generated using six analogue square wave oscillators mixed and processed by band-pass filters. This multi-oscillator design is what gives the 808 hi-hat sounds their unique metallic character and makes each HATS808 sound slightly different from one another. The original ‘choke’ circuitry that makes it sound so dynamic and tight is fully implemented, just like the original, but can also be disabled if needed.
Like the other drum modules in this series, the HATS808 high-powered output gain stage allows you to further harmonise the sound using distortion and clipping. Each input features a dual pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger the module 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 modules 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 setup easy.
