MFB - CB/RS/MA-522


The module CB/RS/MA-522 is composed of three drum voices, in detail a cowbell, a rimshot and maracas. The first two circuits are based on instruments included in the MFB-522, Tanzbär and Tanzbär Lite. For using them in a modular environment, some extras were implemented. The third voice was freshly developed for the CB/RS/MA-522. All drum types can be adjusted in their decay behavior. Additionally, cowbell and rimshot come with tune potentiometers. Trigger and CV inputs complete the circuit.
CB/RS/MA-522 responds dynamically to incoming trigger signals. Besides sequencers and MIDI/CV interfaces, the circuits can also be played using a drum pad, piezo element or dynamic microphone.



The CB/RS/MA-522 module comes equipped with potentiometers and CV inputs for the following parameters:

Cowbell: Pitch, decay
Rimshot: Pitch, decay
Maracas: Decay

The dynamic trigger inputs are adjustable in their sensitivity. At completely clockwise position, 0.1 V are sufficient to activate the module’s drum voices.

CB/RS/MA-522 supports the serial data protocol M-Bus. With the help of a suitable MIDI/CV interface or sequencer, M-Bus allows the user to send control commands to compatible modules without any patch cables at the front of the modular system. Several circuits can be daisy-chained via small wires. M-Bus works twelve times faster than average MIDI setups. In detail, CB/RS/MA-522 responds to the following signals:


  • Trigger and velocity (Note #41)
  • Pitch (CC21)
  • Decay (CC37)


  • Trigger and velocity (Note #37)
  • Pitch (CC19)
  • Decay (CC35)


  • Trigger and velocity (Note #70)
  • Decay (CC46)

Three trigger inputs
Three audio outputs
CV inputs for tune (CB /RS) and decay (CB / RS / MA)
