Doepfer A-117

Digital Noise / 808 Sound SourceModule A-117 (DNG) is a combination module, including a digital noise generator and an 808 source. The digital noise generator uses random sequences of square waves, (18-band, with multiple slewed feed-back loops), whose rate can go from random clicks to pure noise. The colour of the noise is very different from the analog noise produced by the A-118. In addition to a manual setting, the rate can be control-led by an external clock - eg. VCO, LFO or MIDI clock).

The 808 Source aims to re-create the sort of multi-oscillator array that was used in Roland’s TR-808 and 606 drum machines as the basis of the sound of the hi-hat, cymbals and cowbell. The cowbell mix uses two oscillators, and the cymbals mix six.

  • Width: 8HP / 40.3 mm
  • Depth: 40 mm (measured from the rear of the front plate)
  • Power requirements: 20 mA (12V) / -10 mA (-12V)

A surprisingly versatile synth module

nilefitz, 29.06.2016
I got the A-117 to provide a source of digital noise to the sound palette of my modular synth rack. This module turned out to be great fun and surprisingly versatile in use. The sound quality is excellent as expected from doepfer and the build is robust. The only complaint I have is that the control knobs are quite stiff in use. This however is the style of doepfer modules. For this price, every modular synth rack should have one.

Digital noise

Son of MooG, 15.12.2015
The A-117 is a module that the user wants to explore. In the foreground, it delivers digital noise and two oscillator combinations according to the TR-808 model (Cowbell & HH). However, it also provides a random clock, if you set the rate control in the lower range, which can also be externally clocked. In combination with BP filters and VCAs, you can create all sorts of clicks from dry to resonant (eg rainballs) with irregular intervals. In addition, the RND clock is also suitable for triggering sequencers, ADSR, etc. The two 808 derivatives are not finished sounds, but rather have to be formed with filters and ADSR / VCA, whereby not necessarily drum sounds can arise. Overall, the A-117 greatly contributes to the expansion of the sound capabilities of my system.
