  3. Hold Your Breath (Luca Agnelli remix) (7:43)
  4. Hold Your Breath (Maximes Dangles Repeat remix) (7:41)
Review: Florence-based producers Piero Fragolo and Thomas Pizzinga debuted their Angle project late last year, contributing a track to the first compilation from modular synthesizer firm Tiptop Audio's offshoot record label. Here they return to that imprint with their debut EP. There's plenty to admire on both "Hold Your Breath" and "Landing", with the Italian pair getting a great balance between throbbing, dancefloor-friendly grooves, hazy electronic atmospheres, and chiming melodiousness. On the flip you'll find two alternate remixes of "Hold Your Breath". There's a surging, Orbital-meets-Surgeon style interpretation from Luca Angelli, and the muscular, late night techno assault that is the Maxime Dangles Repeat Remix.

Analog bass drum snythesizer module - 4HP wide
Notes: Introducing the BD808, part of our new series of drum modules that brings analog percussion into the modular synth world, instantly turning your system into a self-contained music machine. Its small size, minimalist design, and modern production methods have allowed us to bring the world's most famous bass drum sound generator back at a very low cost. The real thing is here again.

The BD808 is the Roland TR-808's Bass Drum circuit adapted for use in Eurorack format and tuned to sound like a machine that comes fresh off the original 80's assembly line. The adaptation to modular format has allowed us to add some special features like independent Accent levels, a high-powered gain stage, dual-input pulse-shaper, and extended decay - all without compromising the signature sound of the TR-808.

A widely used technique with TR-808 machines is to run the drum sounds through outboard amplifiers to add gain and then pass the sound through just about anything to generate additional harmonics caused by clipping and distortion. In the BD808, we have already included this high-powered output gain stage capable of producing signals up to 20Vpp, extending from the original palette of sounds and allowing you to get an assorted array of harmonized bass drums ranging from sharp attacks to crushed tones using this simple yet effective technique! On the inputs, we have also designed a dual pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger your BD808 with Trigger/Gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers, or any other pulse/clock sources. This saves you the need to shape the pulses sent to the module and ensuring the same stable sound at its peak power, regardless of differences in your pulse source.

All these little, but unique, features make integrating this legendary sound generator into your modular easy, unleashing the power of real analog drums and making those speaker cones shake.

Beat sync delay effects for Z-DSP module
Notes: Clocked Delays are a collection of eight stereo delay programs that let you sync delay time to an external clock applied to CV input two of the Z-DSP.

With a quick setup, the clock input easily and exactly synchronizes the delay repeats to external rhythms generated by the Trigger Riot, Circadian Rhythms or other clock sources. A Divide parameter is included with each program to switch between different divisions or stereo ratios creating a spatial audio clock divider which automatically matches the repeats to a playing beat. Feeding the clock input with odd clock divisions like from the Trigger Riot has the interesting effect moving the repeats in relation to the playing beat.

When it comes to their sound some of the programs feature a pristine classic delay lines, while other programs insert a coloured band pass, low pass or high pass filter in the feedback loop, imparting a beautiful harmonic transition to the repeats as they feedback through the filter and slowly decay away. Using the Z-DSP's analog feedback path adds additional voltage controlled stereo feedback hick can slightly drift the repeats out of their tight sync to the incoming clock, due to the DSP chip latency, and also extend the delay Mil intensity up to self-oscillation. Controlling the Z-DSP's DSP chip speed externally via the Clock jack can devolve everything into glitchy out of sync binary chaos.

Percussion module based on sounds from a classic 909 - 8HP wide
Notes: Tiptop Audio Cymbal 909

The module was designed, tuned and tested to sound like the crash and ride sounds from a 909 fresh off the factory line. The sound circuits use a combination of low-fi 6 bit sound samples that pass through a series of analog elements that provide envelope and filtering to the source sound.
TipTop Audio enhanced the circuits by adding manual and voltage controllable tuning to each voice which result in a wide sound range: from hard industrial sound at the low end to the original crash/ride sounds to brilliant HihHts at high settings.

Like other TipTop drum voices also the Cymbl909 has high output level, allowing you to further enhance the sound by distortion and clipping. Play dynamically with the volume of the drum sounds with the Accent parameter, whose CV input is normalized to the gate input. Which means you just need to turn up the accent knob to play the sound with full punch.

Crash: tune CV input; gate input, normalized to accent CV input; Crash audio output
Ride: tune CV input; gate input, normalized to accent CV input; Ride audio output

Multimode filter based on the Steiner-Parker design - 8HP
Notes: Welcome to the Forbidden Planet, an all analogue multi-mode filter design influenced by the 1975 Steiner-Parker Synthacon model. Control the Forbidden Planet manually or through CV and take the sound of your Eurorack into new orbits.

Forbidden Planet has three filter input jacks: High Pass, Low Pass and Band Pass. The High Pass section is this module's signature sound - a crisp sharp-cut with no residue, designed to add High Pass filtering capability to Tiptop Audio's wide range of Eurorack modules. Send a throbbing kick drum through the High Pass section and filter out the rumbling lows while maintaining the pulse of the beat. The Bandpass is clear and useful in isolating a pie-slice-range-of-frequencies while cutting off the low and highs, great for accurate sound design or sculpting audio into that sweet spot. The Low Pass is an airy classic 12db two-pole analogue slope ideal for monophonic synth patches and filtering down to the essential low-end bass we all love.

The Forbidden Planet Resonance utilizes an internal feedback path which can sound smooth or aggressive depending on the knob setting. At a low setting, it emphasizes the cut-off harmonics, at middle settings it begins to self-oscillate, and towards maximum setting it forms interesting tones and all sorts of chopped grainy bits of self-oscillation perfect for entering into a sci-fi world.

The Forbidden Planet is an impressive multi-mode analogue filter which adds a broader filter spectrum to the Tiptop Audio modular family and unlocks forbidden creative possibilities in a small package.

Reverb Z-DSP cartridge featuring a collection of 8 Voltage-Controlled reverb algorithms for the Tiptop Audio Z-DSP module
Notes: The Tiptop Audio and Valhalla DSP 'Halls Of Valhalla' is a reverb Z-DSP cartridge featuring a collection of 8 Voltage-Controlled reverb algorithms for the Tiptop Audio Z-DSP module.

The cartridge contains 8 original reverb algorithms, custom designed for the Z-DSP and the Eurorack environment. Voltage-control over reverb decay, tone, and modulation allows the user to create reverbs ranging from small rooms to large halls to near-infinite decays. The reverbs in the Halls Of Valhalla are arranged in order of perceived size, from small to big to huge to uncomfortably enormous!

The Halls Of Valhalla brings the artifacts of fixed point digital signal processing to the forefront, resulting in a thickness and warmth that evokes the classic digital gear of the 1970s through the early 1990s. The goal of the algorithms is not to evoke physical environments, but rather to create unreal spaces that range from subtle to bombastic, from light to dark, with a lushness that turns simple input sounds into rich orchestral washes. The Halls Of Valhalla brings the Valhalla DSP aesthetics into the hardware world: Minimalist interface, Maximalist sound.

Program 1: Room
Program 2: Chamber
Program 3: Plate
Program 4: EnsembleVerb
Program 5: Cathedral
Program 6: Nilfheim
Program 7: Asgard
Program 8: Ginnungagap

Hi-hat percussion synth module made from the legendary TR-808's closed & open hi-hat circuits - 8HP wide
Notes: Introducing the HATS808, part of Tiptop Audio's new series of drum modules that bring analog percussion into the modular synth world, instantly turning your system into a self-contained music machine.

The HATS808 is the TR-808's real, analog closed and open hi-hat circuits adapted for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer format and tested to sound just like it did back in the 80's. Adapting to modular foramt has allowed Tiptop Audio to add some special features for each voice, like independent accent levels, a high-powered gain stage, and a dual-input pulse-shaper. Filter Q and VC-Q knobs were added to the main band-pass filter for additional tuning and to allow you to generate crushed tones and self-oscillation at the knob's max position - all without comprimising the signature sound of the TR-808 hi-hats.

The HATS808 sizzling sound is made using six analog square wave oscillators mixed and processed by band-pass filters. This multi-oscillator design is what give the 808 hi-hat sounds their unique metallic character and akes each HATS808 sound slightlty different from one-another. The original "choke" circuitry that makes it sound so dynamic and tight is fully implemented, just like the original, but can also be disabled if needed, by disconnecting the internal connection between the two hats.

Just like the other drums in this series, the HATS808 high-powered output gain stage allows you to further harmonize the sound using distortion and clipping. On each input, there is a dual pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger your HATS808 with Trigger/Gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers or any other pulse/clock sources. This eliminates the need to shape pulses sent to the module and ensures the same stable sound at peak power, regardless of your pulse source. All these unique features make integrating this legendary sound generator into your modular synth easy, unleashing the power of real analog drums.

Percussion synth module with TR-909's original closed and open hi-hats circuits adapted for use in Eurorack modular synthesiser format - 8HP wide
Notes: Introducing the HATS909, part of our new series of drum modules that brings those classic percussion sounds into the modular synth world, instantly turning your system into a self-contained music machine.

The HATS909 is the TR-909's original Closed and Open Hi-Hats circuits adapted for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer format and was tested to sound like a machine coming fresh off the assembly line back in the 80's Improving on the original, we have added some great new features that expand the sound palette of hats that can be produced with this small, powerful module.

The original TR-909 circuit is made with a combination of low-fi 6-bit sound samples that pass through a series of analog elements to provide envelope and filtering to the source sound. The HATS909 module allows for manual and voltage control of the sample's tuning, which provides anything from crushed hats and short ticks to the original sound and anything in between. A modulation switch allows you to tap a voltage control to either the tune input or the internal VCA for modulation with external control signals or for adding AM or FM synthesis in the audio range from external oscillators, other drum sounds, or just about any sound source. HATS909 also offers a switch for a direct tap to the output of the original sample, bypassing all other internal analog processing, giving you the pure source sound for synthesis any way you want with your own modules.

Just like the other drums in this series, the HATS909 high-powered output gain stage allows you to further harmonize the sound through distortion and clipping. On each gate input, we have designed a dual pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger your HATS909 with trigger/gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers, or any other pulse/clock sources.

Percussion synthesiser module with original TR-808 analog maracas drum voice and a white noise generator - 4HP wide
Notes: The MA808 is the TR-808's original analog Maracas drum voice and a white noise generator in Eurorack format. It's a low-cost module that brings back that classic sound, continuing to expand your Tiptop Audio modular drum machine.

The MA808 is a must have sound with its fluffy, harmonically rich presence that greatly enhances the dynamics of Hi Hats sounds in the groove. The Attack control knob can turn the sound from a sharp edged Hi Hat and up to a slow rise exponential attack Maracas sound; a dot on the scale indicates the original 808 set position. The MA808 also provides the continuous analog white noise generator of the 808 machine: a full spectrum of harmonics ideal for use as a starting point for patching your own drum sounds or for general use of white noise. The MA808 is an exact reproduction of the original circuit which sounds like a fresh machine coming off the assembly line back in the 80's.

Compatible with all the other drums in this series, the MA808 includes a hot modular level output gain stage. On the inputs, we have designed a dual-input pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger the MA808 with trigger/gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers, or any other pulse/clock sources. This eliminates the need to shape pulses sent to the module ensuring the same stable sound at peak power, regardless of your pulse source. These distinctive features make integrating this legendary sound generator into your modular synth easy, unleashing the power of real analog drums.

Delay/reverb expansion card for the TipTop Audio Z-DSP Digital Signal Processor
Notes: Mariana Trench is an FDN card for the Z-DSP. Feedback Delay Networks (FDNs) are built around multiple delays which are connected to their inputs thanks to a feedback matrix designed for its stability and lossless properties. FDN can mimic the recursive process of sound waves bouncing back and forth in an acoustic space. They were first suggested for artificial reverberation by Michael Gerzon (1971) and later John Stautner and Miller Puckette (1982) introduced four-channel FDN reverberator with general stability conditions.

FDN can also be used as a special case of digital waveguides, they can be tuned, or also used as complex delays. The Mariana Trench Z-DSP cartridge is designed to explore these more unusual sides of the FDN algorithms. Mariana Trench Z-DSP cartridge is designed by Christophe Duquesne Anckorage - Haken Audio developement team - La Voix du Luthier.

Analog multi-channel mixing synth module for mixing audio, CV and gate signals - 10HP wide
Notes: MIXZ is a low-cost, analog multi-channel mixing module for mixing audio, CV and gate signals with excellent linear response and low noise. Balancing a clear visual layout and multiple mixer in a small footprint makes the MIXZ easy to use in a variety of configurations within the modular synth. Its high quality analog mixing circuitry makes for a great sounding mixer with plenty of headroom, providing a smooth organic merge of dynamics, and excellent separation of mixing sections and channels. MIXZ has three sections:

Mixer A - a low-noise, 4-channel mixer with independent gain control for each channel
Mixer B - a low-noise, 4-channel mixer with master gain control
Bus Mix - a multi-channel mixer that mixes signals from modules utilizing the Tiptop Bus Mix

Mixer A and B can be configured as either two independent 4-channel mixers or as a single 8-channel mixer. If the output of Mixer A is not in use, then Mixer A will be routed internally to Mixer B forming the 8-channel mixer.

Tiptop Bus Mix is a new method we have developed to mix audio signals through the Eurorack power bus board without patch cables, a little bit of magic, eh? Although this technique is not ideal for a low-noise mix, we found it to be useful for some applications including mixing our drum modules, which all have a Bus Mix enabled output. The result is that your drum modules are always available and mixed on the master out of the MIXZ with a flip of a switch. This will save you time and frees up cables for re-patching sounds again and again, while keeping the channels of MIXZ free to bring other signals into the mix.

Combining the Bus Mix with Mixer A and B, the MIXZ can sum dozens of channels in only 10 HP

24bit, 96k 4HP mono sample player
Notes: ONE brings organic sound and super low latency sample playback to the modular. It differs from other sample players in that it handles the digital audio bits as a continuously manipulated electrical flow, a feature inspired by our analog knowhow. This unique core makes ONE truly integral within the Tiptop percussive modular ecosystem thanks to a lightweight and responsive digital circuit with a very analog feel.

ONE brings a world of colours to the modular right out of the package. We have invited some of the best sound designers in the Industry to create professional sound libraries with content tailored to the unique sonic framework of the modular synthesizer and that fully takes advantage of ONE's unique qualities. To start with, ONE comes with a SD card loaded with a free set of 60 sounds designed by Glitchmachines. More cards are available to purchase separately each containing carefully selected material with up to 256 sound files. Using your own sample libraries or recordings is easy too, just copy 16 or 24bit mono WAV files onto the SD card, pop the card into ONE and go.

ONE offers several modes of operation, with the primary being the super low latency Trigger mode that retrieves audio data off the SD card adding no artificial processing such as click removal, crossfading, EQ or gain normalization. In this mode, it's a highly transparent player up to 24 bit 96kHz with no interpolation of the audio data: what you put in is what you get out. With a delay as low as 0.25ms from the moment the trigger hits, ONE offers harmonically dense, clear and detailed audio with a great rhythmic feel.

ONE handles external CV through a user selectable multifunction jack. Pitch is the main control with two modes available: Free pitch allows for fine tuning of the playback rate, great for adding subtle vibrato or wild tape speed effects; Quantized pitch maps CV to the standard 12 tone system over 3.5 octaves and is ideal for melodic content. CV can also be used to sequence through files off the SD card allowing far more varied sounds from a single source; almost like an entire percussion section behind the slim panel.

Although originally designed to play tightly with our analog drums and envelopes, ONE's rich sound quality encouraged us to make it work in a variety of other applications that are less demanding of sub millisecond timing response. The extra headroom at the core level allows features such as Gated playback, Looping, and Triggering with fades in and out to accommodate different types of sound sources from drum loops to polysynth chords to noise sources and other yet unimagined uses.

ONE offers another useful dimension since it can play CV signals too. Drop in a card with LFO signals, random CV, slopes and envelopes for a whole set of new control and modulation possibilities.

ONE is as simple to use as it is affordable and plays extremely well with its analog cousins - our vision for bringing samples into the modular world.

Digital processor with high precision analog CV circuitry
Notes: QuantiZer is a creative melody composing module that uses cutting edge analog electronics and DSP to tune analog VCOs precisely into Western musical scales. The front panel is packed with functions that makes it very playable and intuitive to use, with a layout that moves forward from the typical quantizer design. At its centre is a slider that can be set to play notes, add Portamento to an incoming sequence, transpose a sequence with in an octave range or transpose a sequence within 5 octave range. The 12 note keyboard can be set to play notes manually, add and subtract notes from scales, transpose a sequence as well as setup a variety of settings that define the quantizer behaviour and sync with other modules.

Major and Minor keys are both built in to let you switch scales in a very playable way, making it pretty easy to explore musical progression. There are also 24 user scales ready to be filled up with your own custom scales. A built in sketch pad records and plays back keys entered manually on the keyboard and slider in sync with external clock and reset signal, or Tiptop's SyncBus which chains the QuantiZer recording function to the Circadian Rhythms time line for precise recording and playback. Scale CV in can be set to switch between changing scales or transposing pitches using CV from sequencers. Quantization can be set for free run or Trigger mode for even more interesting ways to interact with external sequencers.

Quantizer sets a new performance standard for Eurorack that offers incredibly stable CV quantization minimizing glitches on input, utilizes high precision temperature compensated 1V/Oct CV generation on output and features stunning conversion latency of less than half a millisecond. QuantiZer can be set to process a wide variety of CV voltage input ranges, +/-5V CV from LFOs, bi-polar envelopes and such, or 0-10V / 0-5V standard CV from sequencers. Continuing the tradition of advanced Tiptop digital modules, the QuantiZer Firmware running the digital brain is upgradeable via a USB thumb drive interface at its back allowing for continuous improvement and fine tuning of function and stability over time.

Rimshot drum module based on voice from legendary TR-909 - 4HP wide
Notes: Another voice from the legendary TR-909 in Tiptop audio's product portfolio is this Rimshot. Its two oscillators can be tuned, unlike on the original.

Details:
As every drum module from Tiptop Audio also the RS909 has a gate input which is normalized to the accent input, making possible to play the drum with full power without the need to patch a lot.. Of course the accent input's intensity can be controlled as well as the output level of the module.

The rimshot sound is generated by two oscillators which in the original TR-909 were tuned to fixed frequencies. This limitation was omitted by Tiptop Audio as they equipped the module with two frequency potentiometers for detuning the oscillators. The original settings of the 909 are marked with black dots.

The SD808 is the TR-808's analog snare drum circuit adapted for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer format and was designed to sound like a fresh-out-of-the-box, 1980s TR-808 snare. Adapting the circuit to the modular format has allowed us to add special features like independent accent levels, a high-powered gain stage, a dual-input pulse-shaper, and an adjustable noise source - all without compromising the signature sound of the TR-808 snare drum.

The SD808 sounds tight and extremely snappy because it's analog - the real thing, not samples. The sound is made with three analog sound generators mixed together: two oscillating sine waves and a noise source. The SD808's front panel controls have a lot of sweet spots with sounds that are not just limited to snare drum sounds; it can also create other electronic percussive elements.

The noise source generator in the original TR-808 machines were revised in later production batches, resulting in variations in sound across the production run. The SD808 uses this later, revised circuit to create a snare drum hit that is slightly darker, has more body, and is more realistic. Just like other drums in this series, the SD808 includes a high-powered output gain stage capable of producing signals up to 20Vpp, allowing you to get an array of harmonized snare drums sounds with even tighter attacks. On the inputs, we have designed a dual-input pulse-shaper circuit so you can trigger the SD808 with Trigger/Gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers, or any other pulse/clock sources. This eliminates the need to shape pulses sent to the module and ensures the same stable sound at peak power, regardless of your pulse source. All these unique features make integrating this legendary sound generator into your modular synth easy, unleashing the power of real analog drums.

Snare drum module in Eurorack format - 8HP
Notes: The SD909 adapts the iconic TR-909 snare drum and noise generator for use in the Eurorack modular synthesizer format. We painstakingly tested the module in our lab to sound like a fresh machine coming off of the assembly line back in the 80s. On top of the original circuit, we have added new features that expand the palette of what can be produced with this analog circuit.

The sound of the SD909 consists of two main sections: the binary noise generator and two modulated triangle oscillators. The oscillators provide the low end punch while the noise makes up the upper sonic spectrum, resulting in a combination that makes the 909 snare sound so rich. In the SD909 module the noise generator and oscillators are variable and voltage controlled, which pushes the circuit beyond its original boundaries offering new sounds as well as many variations of the original tone. The panel has markings to guide setting the knobs to reproduce the snare sound of the vintage machine.

Just like the other drums in this series, the SD909’s high-powered output gain stage allows further enhancement of the sound through distortion and clipping. We have designed a dual pulse-shaper circuit on each gate input so you can trigger your SD909 with Trigger/Gate signals from step sequencers, clock dividers, or any other pulse/clock sources. Also, the SD909 is equipped with access to the MIXZ MixBus matching the rest of the Tiptop line of percussive modules.

Special Throbbing Gristle edition of the Tiptop Audio ONE module
Notes: TG ONE is a special edition of the Tiptop Audio ONE module designed to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Throbbing Gristle's ground-breaking 'Second Annual Report'. Few bands have staked out such on original space in music that proved not only immediately provocative and illuminating, but filtered into almost every corner of electronic and popular music in the succeeding decades.

Collaborating with the band and MUTE records, the Tiptop Audio team tailored the features of the popular ONE to the sound and aesthetic of Throbbing Gristle.

Decked out in a TG colour scheme of red and white on black, the design incorporates the iconic TG 'flash'. Even the packaging sports classic cover art from '20 Jazz Funk Greats'.

Working with long time beta-tester Chris Carter, the Tiptop R&D tweaked the ONE firmware creating two new modes: the first a random file selection on each trigger input; and the second, looping playback that randomly seeks in a sound file with each trigger. Both of these functions take TG ONE into new sonic territory.

TG ONE includes two exclusive cards of Throbbing Gristle samples curated by Chris Carter from his archive of the original Throbbing Gristle recording sessions. The files have been further reworked and revised, modified and mangled by Carter to give the user a unique Throbbing Gristle sonic palette to work wonders with while retaining the spirit of the original sources. Card one consists of 128 percussive sounds and audio snippets with the second card featuring 128 longer samples, pads and loops.
Tightly coupled with the firmware these cards are only available with the TG module.

Tiptop Audio would like to thank Paul Taylor, Daniel Miller and all at Mute for their support; and Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and the late Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson for their inspiration.

FX expansion card bundle for ZDSP digital effects processor
Notes: The Time Domain Bundle is all about rich delay effects. The package consists of three Z-DSP cards with eight algorithms each. Modulated Delays specializes in animated echo programs, which can be used to create, for instance, diffusion, chorus or pan effects. Hydra provides multi-tap algorithms. These can be used to generate rhythmical delays. Spiral combines a pitch shifter and a multi-tap echo to create atmospheric to slightly psychedelic effects.

Mod Delay:

Modulated Delays brings various forms of animation to the delay lines. These types of algorithms further extend the signal path of delay effects with extra processing and routing of the audio signal. The sonic results put the Mod Delay effects in a category of their own.

Each program adds different processing like diffusion, chorus, panning and other modulation to the basic mono or dual delay line structure. The two Modulator programs are intended for use with external CV - opening up vast modulation possibilities of the modular synthesiser. Each card comes loaded with 8 presets.

Hydra:

Hydra is the multi-armed DSP creature tapping its tentacles into a buffered delay line and creating a range of multi-tap delay rhythmic and spatial effects. The Spread parameter sweeping through rhythmic variations allowing some of the programs bridge the gap between single delays and reverbs by using diffusion while others use taps to create rhythmic patterns.

The basic Hydra algorithm sums the inputs to mono and writes the signal to a single delay line. Multiple output taps are taken from the delay line and spread across the stereo outputs. Each program adds additional features like panning, filtering, pitch shifting and/or diffusion to create a unique Z-DSP Hydra experience. The last two programs add external Clock input for more precise sync to the beat.

Spirals:

Spirals is a pitch and multi-tap delay card for the Z-DSP. This card uses numerous multi-tap delay techniques in combination with dual pitch shifters to create a wide range of harmonizing choruses, echo and harmonic reverb sounds. Programs on this card derive from the complex algorithms found on high-end studio effects processors, which, while powerful, have a complex editing process. On the Z-DSP all of the power of the internal code is controlled by three simple adjustments for sculpting the sound - making the experience more about performance and live tweaking rather than navigating through dozens of menu pages.

Trigger sequencer
Notes: From a conceptual view, the Trigger Riot generates 16 clock streams consisting of multiple time manipulation functions (division, offsets, etc) that interact to create the trigger output, and direct access to each parameter via individual knobs allows for quick manipulation. The 8 outputs are the sum of those manipulated streams per row. The outputs of the module are arranged as either a 4x4 matrix, where each of the 16 knobs affects both row and column, or as a set of independent outputs for each row or column. This allows forming 8 complex musical interactions in a 'Matrix' mode or 8 independent streams in 'Independent' mode and is switchable from one to the other on press of a button for some unexpected results.

Since each of the 16 knobs represents a real time tweakable trigger generator/modifier the Trigger Riot is extremely playable and can result very complex patterns with only few knob turns; patterns that would otherwise take much longer and in some instances be almost impossible to produce using grid based step sequencing. Patterns can have unique time signatures that can repeat or be randomized through probability, time shifted and phased, divided, multiplied and counted, it's unbelievable how complex this module can get with minimal input.

Reverb cartridge for TipTop Audio Z-DSP with 8 original algorithms
Notes: The Z-DSP Shimmer cartridge has 8 original algorithms, designed to combine lush reverberation with multiple voices of pitch shifting, to create ethereal pads, rich chordal textures, dissonant clouds of sound, and a variety of other sounds that are perfect for electronic music. The algorithms are customized to work with the Tiptop Audio Z-DSP Eurorack module.

There are 6 reverb algorithms in the Z-DSP Shimmer cart, arranged in order of complexity:
- Fast Shimmer: A modulated reverb that quickly decays away into an endlessly pitch shifting tail. The shift interval can be set between +/- 12 semitones. Perfect for that classic "octave up" shimmer sound.
- Slow Shimmer: Similar to Fast Shimmer, but with a much slower attack.
- Dual Shimmer: Two pitch shifted voices, embedded within a larger modulated reverb network, shifting the reverb decay in both positive and negative directions. Try slowly sweeping the Shift control in this mode for ridiculously cinematic sounds.
- Triple Shimmer: Two pitch shifted voices embedded within the reverb decay network, plus a third voice external to the network. This allows the user to have a reverb with +12 and -12 semitones of feedback, plus a stable +7 semitones voice without feedback.
- Quad Shimmer: Four pitch shifted voices feeding into a lush modulated reverb. This allows for a variety of dissonant and consonant chordal textures, with the max Shift setting corresponding to a rich major chord.
- ClusterVerb: Four pitch shifted voices embedded within the feedback network of a modulated reverb. The result quickly becomes dissonant or metallic. Perfect for insta-Ligeti, or Penderecki In A Box.

In addition, the Z-DSP Shimmer cart features 2 special effects algorithms:
- Quad Detune: 4 short pitch shifted delays, feeding back on each other. A variety of chorus, detuned, and dissonant effects can be obtained through this mode. Turn up the Feedback for maximum fun.
- PitchEcho: A single pitch shifting voice, combined with a tape echo emulation = sound mangling joy. Turn up the feedback for barberpole self-oscillation, and sweep the decay time for all sorts of swoopy glitches.

8HP voltage-controlled ADSR envelope with CV processor - 'New Style'
Notes: The Z4000 NS is a snappy voltage-controlled analogue envelope generator with a built-in CV processor for scaling, inverting, and voltage-controlled deviating of the envelope shape. The Z4000 generates an envelope made of the four classic segments: Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release, in which each segment can be manually set using knobs or dynamically set under voltage control.

Control knobs for the Attack, Decay, and Release segments are scaled. The first 0-50% of the knobs rotation is dedicated to high resolution adjustment in the millisecond range.

The output levels are fully adjustable with signals that can reach up to 10V in either polarity and can be mirrored into the opposite polarity or clipped using the voltage-controlled deviater-scaler. A bi-colour LED indicates intermediate values in both polarities and their crossfade state.

The Attack slope switch allows selection of a logarithmic or exponential curve for the Attack segment. This subtle effect helps further the fine adjustment of the Attack segment slope. A Shoot button is provided to let you fire the envelope manually. The Z4000 also provides a retrigger input allowing you to create legato notes when using a classic keyboard interface.

Going down to nuts and bolts, the Z4000's smoothness and snappiness is made possible by a four-segment active-charge discrete circuit which is an extended version of circuits found in classic two-segment rise/fall transient generators.

Open-source, cartridge-based, digital sound processing & generating platform
Notes: The Z-DSP NS is a cartridge-based, digital sound processing and generating platform for your modular synthesizer. The Z-DSP NS has a stereo DSP processor with 24-bit sampling, 15khz of bandwidth, smooth voltage-controlled parameters, and has the ability to be programmed - all in a Eurorack format. While the Z-DSP NS cannot compete with the processing power found on personal computers, it does provide direct control of the DSP hardware and has a unique set of features aimed at the manipulation of digital effects. With the Z-DSP NS, digital audio can be bent, stretched, deformed, and distorted by interacting with your modules; something personal computers just can't do.

The Z-DSP NS interface includes VC digital parameters, VC Mix/Dry, manual and sequential program switching, and a pair of VC feedback loop paths with exposed patch points that let you insert the rest of your modular into the DSP process. The Z-DSP NS lets you go far beyond ordinary processing, breaking the rules and allowing you to patch right into the heart of the DSP chip through the clock input, allowing for some digital madness and creative sound design.
