If you ever wondered how to fit more drum sounds into your overcrowded Eurorack then look no further than the 2HP drum line. Kick, Snare and Hat with both open and closed hi-hats are what you need to be looking at. Or if you just fancy some space efficient and simple to use drum sounds.
It’s a bass drum synthesizer with a dramatic timbral range. It can go from 808 to IDM with punchy kicks and smooth distorted tones. It tracks 1v/oct over 5 octaves and allows for tonal sequencer of the entire frequency range. CV control over tone and decay.
They say it will take you from short blips to 909 hits and everywhere in between. It’s a powerful sound design tool that combines CV control over snap and decay to very interesting effect. 1v/oct pitch tracking offers percussive melodies with atypical timbres, while “Snap” plays with the texture of the metaphorical membrane.
They say this hi-hat has a wild side. Sounds ranging from robotic to metallic. Inside there are three unique sound sources made up of 6 oscillators, a noise generator and a number of filters. Sizzle affects each source independently allowing for a broad range of sounds. Separate trigger inputs for open and closed hi-hat make for a very complete little module.
It’s easy to mistake 2HP modules as handy hole fillers when they really do demand your attention in their own right. All three are available in silver or black for $129.
