Description

HATS909
Analog Hi-Hats Drum Generator Module
  • Classic TR-909 hi-hat sound in an 8HP Eurorack synth module
  • Vintage-style lo-fi sound combines a 6-bit sample with analog synthesis
  • Control Accent level with gate or CV and VC-Tune provides continuous CV control over pitch
  • AM and FM synthesis capabilities onboard include onboard VCA and external oscillator input
  • Bypass all analog processing to send the raw sample out for external manipulation
  • Only 8HP wide, so you'll have plenty of space for more drum synths

Introducing the HATS909, 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.

The HATS909 is the TR-909’s original Closed and Open Hi-Hats circuits adapted for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer format and was designed to sound like a machine coming fresh off the assembly line back in the 80’s. Improving on the original, we have added some great new features that expand the sound palette that can be produced with this small, powerful module.

The original TR-909 circuit is made with a combination of low-fi sound samples that pass through a series of analog elements to provide envelope and filtering to the source sound. The HATS909 module allows for manual and voltage control of the sample’s tuning, which provides anything from crushed hats and short ticks to the original sound and anything between. Additional controls allow you to send a voltage control signal to either the tune input or the internal VCA for modulation with external control signals and, using a modulation switch, add AM or FM synthesis in the audio range from external oscillators, other drum sounds, or just about any other sound source. Lastly, HATS909 also offers a switch that allows you to tap directly into the raw output of the module for a unique sound source that can used throughout your system.

Just like the other drums in this series, the HATS909 high-powered output gain stage allows you to further harmonize the sound through distortion and clipping. On each gate input, we have designed a dual pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger your HATS909 with trigger/gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers, or any other pulse/clock sources.

Lo-fi '909 hats in their classic 6-bit hybrid glory

The HATS909 faithfully re-creates the original TR-909's tone circuit, capturing the classic lo-fi metallic hiss that's punctuated countless electronic hits since 1984. This sound is the result of a 6-bit sample and sophisticated analog filtering to shape and manipulate the audio. While the HATS909 includes excellent analog processing, you can bypass it all and send the raw sample straight out to your favorite Eurorack modules.

Get creative with flexible accent and tuning controls

Both the HATS909's accent and its tuning circuit accept CV input, providing you with an extra layer of continuous control. Transistory synth nuts love the way it interacts with standalone sequencers. Combined with separate decay settings for the open and closed hat sounds, it's easy to create your ideal '909 hi-hat tone.

Kick up your hi-hat sound with AM and FM synthesis

Since Tiptop Audio already provided the circuits for continuous volume and pitch, they decided to add on a modulation option that lets you add AM or FM synthesis to your hi-hat tone. There's an internal VCA, plus an external input for external oscillators, drum sounds, or other sources. So if you want to get weird with your hats, the HATS909 is the rhythm module for you.

Most of the Brands, that Transistory directly imports into India are Boutique Eurorack / Modular Brands/Manufacturers, that manufacture units in small batches and are usually built upon order confirmation from us, while constantly maintaining consistent quality and robustness & very importantly, prices that they (the Brands), through Transistory deliver to the end user (YOU).

Covid-19 Related Bottlenecks and now Russia's Occupation by War Campaign have resulted in Heavy Supply Chain Delays and Various Chip + Parts Shortages that have affected all Manufacturing Industries including but not limited to Eurorack / Modular Manufacturing Brands available through Transistory, which ultimately results in slower overall production time for products/units and in some rare cases minor variations in prices of products.

In fact, few Eurorack / Modular brands/manufacturers, especially ones with highly complex module(s) or product(s) have actually paused production and sales indefinitely until further notice.

Don't Worry, products of such Brands are NOT displayed or made available for sale through Transistory until the time these Brands cannot fulfill product orders within Transistory's Pre-Order System time frame.

***Any Brand Manufacturers Reading This Policy, Please Note:
Transistory's Pre-Order System & Policy Is Simply For Our Convenience.
To Collect & Consolidate Individual Customers Orders Before We Place Orders With You. 

_._._._._._._._._._._._

TRANSISTORY has thus adopted a Pre-Order System with carefully chosen Eurorack / Modular Brands, specifically to curb big purchase orders which ultimately take longer to fulfill and and once fulfilled, can also result in sleeping stock with Transistory of products/units incase they do not sell/tickle the fancy of the new and growing community of Indian Eurorack / Modular Music Making Enthusiasts.

All Pre-Orders & pre-order product(s) have a 15-45 working days lead time from Order Confirmation to Final Delivery. Please read on for more details below.

.

BONUS: Transistory's Pre-Order System also greatly helps to suppress your impulsive G.A.S. {G.ear A.cquisition S.yndrome} an extremely common affliction amongst music enthusiasts in the fast moving world of Music Technology.

G.A.S. Definition
"Gear Acquisition Syndrome, also known as G.A.S., is commonly understood as the musicians’ unrelenting urge to buy and own instruments and equipment as an anticipated catalyst of creative energy and bringer of happiness."

Please Google, Gear Acquisition Syndrome for more information or to identify if you have ever been a victim of this common disorder.
We at Transistory are most definitely guilty of regular re-lapses into this chaos, as we are sure a lot of you are as well.
Fortunately / Unfortunately, depending on subjective viewpoints there is no actual cure for G.A.S.
The only solution is Healthy Management of G.A.S.

Let's face it, Starting off / Growing your Eurorack Music System can very quickly become a highly exorbitant endeavor, so it is extremely helpful and considerably safer on the pocket to have a buffered time option to thoroughly research the gear you are interested in buying before placing your order, rather than impulsively purchasing music gear on a G.A.S.y whim.
