A few months ago System 80 announced plans to make a eurorack 808 drum machine clone. Fast forward to now and they’ve announced an open source Jupiter 6 filter module. Files are available on GitHub as it’s all open source but you can purchase them from System 80 on the site – http://system80.net. Check the filter out on Soundcloud.
So what exactly is the filter? Not too hard to figure out but it’s a modern recreation of the Jupiter-6’s multimode filter that has the original 24dB low, band and high pass filter types as well as adding a 12dB mode hinting towards the Jupiter-8.
So what’s happening with the drum machine I hear you ask! Well it’s voice circuits are exact TR-808 clones, the step sequencer is “enhanced” and they reckon it will be ready this year. Like most things though setting dates early on seems silly as nearly everyone misses them.
