Much attention has been paid to keeping original behaviour while developing this direct clone of the TR-808 bass drum. The module recreates the punchy, rolling low bassdrum we love and can be pretty loud. Especially with accent and level parameters set to high values you´ll achieve levels of 20Vpp. This will of course overdrive subsequent units but you´ll save on distortions or gain staging units and will allow for a sound palette from mild and round to dirty and aggressive – quite versatile in sound.
The gate input is normalized to the dynamic accent input. If nothing is patched to the accent input the bass drum will be played with highest velocity. On the other hand this allows you for adjusting the output level with the accent control.
Controls for Level, Tone, Decay and accent level.
