Notes: MISO is a multipurpose utility module, a laboratory for synthesizing control voltage signals and audio. MISO combines multiple CV tools into one module for making complex CV shapes at the output stage. The name comes from the four main functions available: Mix, Invert, Scale, and Offset.
MISO's 2 sections (1/2 IN and A/B IN) are identical. Each section has two inputs that can be used to Mix signals, Invert polarity/shape, Scale magnitude and Offset voltage. Each function can be used independently or simultaneously with the total shape summed to the mix output.
At the centre of the module is another processor, an accurate smooth linear voltage-controlled crossfader that mixes equally between the outputs of the top and the bottom MISO sections. Feed the MISOs with envelopes, LFOs, Sequences to create new shapes and then crossfade them manually or with CV using the centre section for even further complexity of shapes and animation of control signals. Crossfade between the waveforms of a VCO or audio samples with CV for more motion.
There are an endless number of ways to patch MISO with unexpected and inspiring results. MISO is the kind of module that gives modular synthesizers its incredible replay value, rewarding hours of creative explorations and its experimental and non-traditional mixing.
MISO offers a lot in a small comfortable module that matches Tiptop's system look with clean white faceplate styling. A red/yellow indicator light next to each section makes it easy to see signals and visualize polarity.
Seven channel mixer with classic analogue sound - 3HP
Notes: MIX7 is a seven channel analogue summing mixer module for Eurorack. It is designed for summing any of the different types of signals you'll find in a modular system: Audio, CV, Triggers, or Gate.
MIX7 gives ability to sweeten your mix with more headroom using the power of low noise analogue summing. A compact 3HP Eurorack utility module, MIX7 is an attractive mixing addition to any rig, especially with the ability to also combine rhythms, note patterns or CV automations from different control sources. The main output of one section can be connected to the input of another MIX7 to create larger mixing groups and complex signal routes inside your modular.
The MIX7 summing mixing circuit is built with low-noise operational amplifiers, giving it an excellent sound quality for mixing audio, the beautiful texture of classic analogue mixing with plenty of headroom to handle hot modular signals, and the versatility to sum non-audio signals in your system to open up new creative possibilities.
Each input is labelled with a number of dots, 1-7, yellow for input and green for output. The module matches Tiptop's system look with clean white faceplate styling.
At the back of the module is a user-configurable jumper allowing users to configure the MIX7 for either unity gain (OUT = IN) or give increased headroom (OUT = 0.4IN) for use with hot audio signals, which makes it a great pairing for Tiptop Audio percussive modules. A peak indicator light on the front panel warns the user of even the slightest audio clipping in the mix, helping to keep all the incoming sound sources at their full original quality.
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
Notes: TAPE ECHO by Tiptop Audio brings classic tape-based delays to the Z-DSP effects library. Eight expressive algorithms which emulate analogue tape machines and the producers that inspire Tiptop Audio.
With Tape Echo you can do it all - recreate space echo dub sound of Lee "Scratch" Perry and King Tubby or dig deep into the gritty and endless saturated repeats favoured by dub experimenters like Basic Channel and Boards of Canada.
So wide in its functionality, playability and natural in its sound, Tape Echo sits comfortably amongst the greats of the Roland RE-201 Space Echo, Copycat and Maestro Echoplex all while having a unique character of its own.
From wobbly tape to stereo pong, Tape Echo comes with a multitude of expressive settings and presets that allow you to recreate virtually any style of analogue echo or magnetic tape delay or invent your own sound when you adjust the fidelity of the Z-DSP clock!
Tape Echo for the Tiptop Audio Z-DSP is a joy to use. Precision control of the Frequency, Filter and Feedback are clear to read with the Z-DSP display, plus corresponding controls make setting delay times by ear easy and fun to do like its predecessors.
