TR-808 inspired HiHats module with extra features

Synthesized, analog Hi-Hats are pretty fascinating. That’s because emulating any kind of cymbal using an analog circuit is tough, since the sound a real cymbal produces is not quite pure noise, but also not really harmonic.
Still, a couple classic drum machines like the Roland TR-606 and TR-808 took their best shot at it, with quite strange sounding results that have since become iconic in electronic music. Inspired by this, we decided to follow suit and continue our percussion-focused second season of educational DIY kits with the mki x es.edu DIY Hi-Hat.
