Analog Cymbal Sounds Drum Generator Module
  • A pair of classic TR-909-style cymbal synths loaded in one 8HP Eurorack module
  • Includes ride and crash cymbal sounds based on classic 6-bit lo-fi samples and analog shaping
  • Analog envelope-controlled filter delivers authentic '80s electronic cymbal sound
  • Control cymbal tuning manually or via CV for a broad range of crazy and creative sound effects
  • Dual pulse-shaper gate inputs accept gate/trigger, clock divider, and any other pulse generator signal
  • Built with enough gain on tap to distort and mangle your output audio for hardcore cymbal sounds
  • Only 8HP wide, so you'll have plenty of space for more drum synths

Introducing the CYMBL909, part of our new series of drum modules that brings those classic percussion sounds into the modular synth world, instantly turning your system into a self-contained music machine.

CYMBL909 is a dual voice module containing the TR-909’s original Crash and Ride circuits adapted for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer format and was designed to sound like a fresh machine coming out of the assembly line back in the 80’s. On top of the original, we have added some great new features that expand the sound palette of what can be produced with these two voice circuits.

The original circuits use a combination of low-fi 6-bit sound samples that pass through a series of analog elements that provide envelope and filtering to the source sound. The CYMBL909 module adds manual and voltage control of the sample’s analog tuning section creating tones which range from heavy industrial at the low end, to the original crash/ride sound at the mid range, and bright hats-like sounds at the top end. Modulating the tune with an envelope, CV sequencer, or LFO makes interesting sound bending effects, which can be applied either in or out of sync with the triggering of the sounds.

Just like the other drums in this series, the CYMBL909 high-powered output gain stage allows you to further enhance the sound through distortion and clipping. We have designed a dual pulse-shaper circuit on each gate input so you can trigger your CYMBL909 with trigger/gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers or any other pulse/clock.

Grab, twist, and tune your cymbal sounds

One of the cool things Tiptop Audio added to the CYMBL909's synthesis engine is a tuning control. Give it a twist to take your crash or ride sound from standard to a high-pitched hiss, or all the way down to an industrial rumble. The creative possibilities are endless.

Get seriously creative with CV tuning control

In addition to a hardware tuning knob, the CYMBL909 includes CV tuning control. Sweetwater Eurorack synth geeks love patching in LFOs, envelopes, and other modulation sources to create funky drifts, exotic bends, and crazy sci-fi sounds.

Flexible gate inputs deliver total sequencing freedom

One of the biggest problems with Eurorack drum modules, even modern ones, is getting them to trigger off a variety of sources. Tiptop Audio solved this issue in the CYMBL909 with their dual pulse-shaper gate circuit, which lets you easily trigger your cymbals from virtually anything. Whether you're using standard gate signals, clock dividers, or other pulse/clock sources, the CYMBL909 will respond.

Enough gain onboard to drive your sound to distortion

There's nothing quite like the rude and rough sound of '909 cymbals crushed in the jaws of solid-state amp distortion — in fact, there are entire genres of electronic music based on sounds like those. You'll be happy to know that Tiptop Audio outfitted their CYMBL909 with enough onboard gain to brutally clip the output, so all those mangled, gritty tones are yours to command.
