808 rimshot synthesis
Hello, I recently had some fun and even some convincing results recreating tr 808 sound. Still very much a work in progress, though. Lots of great reads, schematics, research etc. Very helpful if you don’t know your vca from your vco.
One sound I absolutely fail to recreate even approximately is the rimshot. I’m trying to stick as close as I can to the methods in the original. There is almost no useful information I can find (I don’t know how to calculate frequencies on the basis of R values or any such wizardry). So either this is considered to be so simple it needs no explanation, or nobody is interested.
It’s he last sound I need to add, and it’s frankly driving me nuts. So any useful information would be greatly appreciated!
I put this post in how to’s. Hope that’s ok.
Thank you 😊
