808 Hi-hats for Your Eurorack Modular System

Add the Tiptop Audio HATS808 module to your modular synth rig for the classic sound of TR-808 hi-hats. This all-analog module offers both closed and open hi-hat circuits, each with a distortion-capable gain stage and independent Accent levels. Fine-tune your hi-hat grooves with the Q and Decay controls, while triggering via Gate or CV. It's the perfect match for Tiptop Audio's SD808 and BD808 modules, bringing you the sound of '80s electronic music in a flexible format for modern productions. No modular analog drum rig is complete without the Tiptop Audio HATS808.

Tiptop Audio HATS808 Eurorack Percussion Module at a Glance:
  • Spot-on re-creation of an iconic hi-hat sound
  • Allows for both choked and un-choked hi-hat grooves
  • Enhanced output gain stages can be used for built-in overdrive effects
Spot-on re-creation of an iconic hi-hat sound

Just like the original '808, the Tiptop Audio HATS808 module employs six square-wave oscillators processed with a bandpass filter. The sound is pleasingly metallic, and a wide range of timbres are possible between the Q, VC-Q and Decay controls.

Allows for both choked and un-choked hi-hat grooves

In its stock configuration, the HATS808 module allows the closed and open hi-hat sounds to choke each other out for tight grooves. You can also disable choking with an internal switch, giving you many more creative options. You could use a very high Decay setting on the open hat to create a crash cymbal effect, while allowing the short hat to continue the groove uninterrupted.

Enhanced output gain stages can be used for built-in overdrive effects

Overdriving '808 sounds is an integral part of some electronic music styles, and the HATS808 module is the first '808-style module Sweetwater has seen that has harmonic saturation built right in. It's perfect for adding sizzle to the hi-hat sounds, and also for generating extra harmonics when using the hats as modulation sources. Just turn up the Level and Accent controls for more saturation and harmonic richness.

Tiptop Audio HATS808 Eurorack Percussion Module Features:
  • Analog remake of the classic '808 hi-hat circuits for your Eurorack modular rig
  • Q control starts in original '808 territory, adds metallic resonance and character as it increases
  • Choking can be disabled for expanded rhythmic possibilities
  • Powerful gain stages allow you to increase harmonic richness and achieve overdrive effects
  • Use CV or gate signal to control the accent volume for dynamic performances
  • Only 8hp wide, so you'll have plenty of space for more drum synths
Add '808 grooves to your Eurorack modular rig with the Tiptop Audio HATS808 module.
