This quick and dirty instrument seeks to emulate and expand upon TR-808 HiHat circuit
Based on Scmitt Trigger Oscillator - a ank of six oscillators on one chip, individually tuned
I have approximated the tuning using MIDI notes for easy, scaled transposition
Velocity control added

B. Panel contains further editing/circuit bending functions
As the TR-808 uses the same oscillator section for Cowbell, HiHat and Cymbal, the Tone and Decay controls can be used to approximate these too, but i have not attempted to emulate the differences in the Cowbell and Cymbal circuits
Reducing 1-4 Gain to zero leaves the cowbell oscillators ringing

To Do:
Refine filter circuits
Refine Gain staging
Build new oscillators and tuning system
