Tiptop Audio - CP909 TR909 Clap Generator
The Tiptop Audio - CP909 TR909 Clap Generator is one original remake of the classic Roland drum machines that have changed the sound of electronic music forever. They took years of development. We usually say the the 808 and 909 series modules at Tiptop Audio do not sound like the classics. We dare say that they actually sound better compared to some of the original's series they are integrated into your eurorack modular system.
The Tiptop Audio - CP909 TR909 Clap Generator is Roland's TR-909 analog clap sound generator adapted for modular synthesizer use. The front panel contains all of the controls found on the original TR-909 drum machine, allowing you full control over the sound’s volume levels to mix with other drums, and accent levels. In addition to those original controls the manufacturers have also added the unique TRASH knob, further enhancing this circuit.
About the Making of the CP909.
The CP909 is a one-to-one clone of the original circuit found in Roland's TR-909 drum machine. During the design phase, the manufacturers created additional features only when implementation would not compromise the original signature sound, or add excessive costs. Cloning a circuit that was designed and produced in the 80's was not an easy task. A variety of obstacles including availability of the original parts, the modern SMT manufacturing process, the differences in +/-12V Eurorack power versus the +/-15V of the original 909, and far many more were addressed in the creation of this module.
