Tiptop Audio - MA808 Maracas Sound Generator
The Tiptop Audio - MA808 Maracas Sound 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.
Tiptop Audio - MA808 Maracas Sound Generator - The maraca drum voice from the 808 as Eurorack module.
The MA808 is the original analog Maracas drum voice and a white noise generator in eurorack format. It's a low-cost module that brings back that classic sound, continuing to expand your Tiptop Audio modular drum machine.
The MA808 is a must have sound with its fluffy, harmonically rich presence that greatly enhances the dynamics of Hi Hats sounds in the groove. The Attack control knob can turn the sound from a sharp edged Hi Hat and up to a slow rise exponential attack Maracas sound; a dot on the scale indicates the rogingal 808 set position. The MA808 also provides the continuous analog white noise generator of the 808 machine: a full spectrum of harmonics ideal for drum sounds or for general use of white noise. The MA808 is an exact reproduction of the original circuit which sounds like a fresh machine coming off the assembly line back in the 80's.
Compatible with all the other drums in this series the MA808 includes a hot modular level output gain stage. On the inputs, the manufacturers have designed a dual-input pulse-shpaer circuit so you can trigger the MA808 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 ensuring the same stable sound at peak power, regardless of your pulse source. These distinctive features make integrating this legendary sound generator into your modular synth easy, unleashing the power of real analog drums.
