About the circuit:

  • Henry's circuit is based on a Schmitt Trigger network of 6 square wave oscillators as found in TR-808 and CR78  drum machines
  • Henry's controls offer access to popular circuit bent functions 
  • Henry is NOT a TR-808 emulation but does share similar sound characteristics
  • Henry can do a passable cowbell too

Henry's Controls

  1. Freq 1 - Pitch of all 6 oscillators
  2. Freq 2 - Pitch of the last 2 oscillators which form the cowbell
  3. Decay - From a deep 'Click' to just about long enough
  4. HiHat/Cowbell - HiHat or Cowbell
  5. Bite - a pair of peaky HiPass filters
  6. Spite - A spiteful HiPass
