Distortion effects module with classic Roland distortion sound, for use as tabletop effect or Eurorack module
Notes: TORCIDO is a versatile modular effect combining classic Roland distortion sound and unprecedented control and flexibility. Able to be used as a tabletop unit or as a Eurorack module, and with an array of CV/Gate inputs, this compact 21 HP unit has a wide range of uses from studio production to live performance. Not only for modular synth users, TORCIDO is perfect for keyboard players, guitarists, DJs or any adventurous musician looking to expand their sound. Carefully crafted in Japan, TORCIDO has large, ultra-smooth controls with over 16 million steps of resolution and is fully re-programmable via computer, smartphone or tablet.

TORCIDO can produce tones ranging from gentle, warm overdrive to heavy distortion. Using the large, high-resolution knobs, or standard 1/8" patch cables, you can independently control the distortion amount, tone, tube warmth, wet/dry signal, low-end boost and signal bypass. Both the distortion amount and tone parameters have input level controls for adjusting the modulation range when controlled from an external source. Two inputs and two outputs make TORCIDO a stereo-capable, 24bit/96kHz audio interface for Eurorack systems and the built-in AIRA Link USB compatibility gives it single-cable, plug and play connectivity with the MX-1 Mix Performer.

While it sounds great out of the box, you can fully customize TORCIDO's internal signal path by re-patching its array of virtual sub-modules via a custom application that works on Mac and PC as well as iOS and Android devices. Submodules are re-patched through a simple and intuitive drag and drop interface that even lets you choose which parameters are assigned to the high-resolution "GRF" knobs. You can reprogram TORCIDO in realtime via USB connection or save and recall patches with a simple audio signal. You can even share patches with other TORCIDO users.

TORCIDO includes 15 virtual sub-modules with more available through future expansion:

LFO, ADSR, NOISE, SAMPLE & HOLD, RING MOD, FILTER 6dB, FILTER 12dB, TONE, AMP, MIXER, STEREO MIXER, CURVE CONV, GATE DIVIDER, TRIG TO CV DELAY TIME, MIDI CLOCK TO GATE

Modulated ladder filter Eurorack module with Variable Slope, Q Intensity Control & Q Level Compensation
Notes: At the core of the EVOLUTION Variable Character Ladder Filter is Dave Rossum's enhancement of the iconic Moog ladder filter from the original E-mu Systems 2100 LPF module (which, incidentally, Dave counts as his favourite sounding of all of the analog filters he designed).

For EVOLUTION, Dave has designed new capabilities that not only allow you to dial in all of the outstanding qualities of the original 2100, but combine to let you create the sonic characteristics of a wide variety of other filter types.

They include:

- A Genus control that allows continuous voltage control of the number of filter poles (from 3 to 6 poles), essentially allowing real-time variation of Evolution's effective cutoff slope from 18dB/oct to 36dB/oct. LEDs give continuous indication of the current slope.
- A Species control that lets you vary the signal level into the ladder, letting you control the intensity of the filter's characteristic distortion. When in self-oscillation mode, this control modulates the amplitude of Evolution's output.
- Voltage controlled resonance with a variable Q Level Compensation control that controls the balance of the resonant peak and the frequencies below the cutoff frequency (which would otherwise be attenuated as the resonance is increased).
- An extremely accurate and temperature-stable frequency control exponential generator (accurate over 10 octaves), rivalling the specifications of the best analog VCOs.

Taken together, EVOLUTION gives you everything from the platonic ideal of the classic ladder filter to a vast selection of alternative filter characteristics.

And like all Rossum Electro-Music modules, it's solidly built, with machined aluminium knobs and high quality components throughout.

Premium 14-pole stereo digital filter module
Notes: With our MORPHEUS digital filter module, we're finally able to unleash the full power of the 14-pole Z-Plane Filters that Dave invented for the E-mu Morpheus synthesizer.

The MORPHEUS Eurorack module includes over 280 filter configurations, what we call Cubes. Each Cube is composed of up to 8 complex filters that you can picture as being at the corners of a three dimensional cube (hence the name). Morpheus gives you the ability to smoothly interpolate between those 8 filters within the cube's three dimensional space.

Due to processor limitations back in the day, the original Morpheus was capable of real-time morphing in one dimension, but interpolation in the frequency and transform dimensions were set at note-on and remained static for the remainder of the note. But even with that limitation, Morpheus offered sonic capabilities that are unmatched to this day.

With the MORPHEUS filter module, you now have simultaneous real-time CV control of all three dimensions, for dynamic timbral effects unlike anything you've ever heard before. In stereo.

Modular synthesizer in Eurorack format - improved version of the Thru-Zero Oscillator module
Notes: Improved version of the high performance Thru-Zero Oscillator OMEGA-PHI.

What has been improved?

Firstly, the VCO core:
- Parasitic noise effect especially audible at low oscillator frequencies at the Omega-sine/tri outputs exactly when the thru-zero operation begins to start by FM-modulation through a sine modulator is reduced by 15 db and is so no longer audible! BTW: a similar noise at the Phi-sine/tri outputs was not reduced!
- Highly improved oscillator FM-stability;
a) New precision rectifier design leading to terrific in-tune FM synthesis over the full index over a very wide frequency range.
b) New core-symmetry circuit for a perfect balanced triangle wave eliminates tendencies to asymmetric tri/sine shapes even at high FM-modulation frequency/carrier frequency ratios. This leads to no more carrier-sine distortions and no detunes even at high ratios.
c) Improved thermal board design for better frequency stability and linearity at very high frequencies and thus more stable FM results, generally.
- Extended maximum FM index from 44 to now 50.

Secondly, the VCO environment:
- Completely new VCA design for FM and PM providing ultra-low noise and ultra-low control feed-through capability.
- Ultra low constant or transient frequency shifts with varying FM indices in both modes, DC and AC.
- Cleaner sound, especially for PM and also for FM at higher oscillator frequencies, where VCA noises become relevant.
- Smoother VCA-index curve for better control even around zero reduced potentiometer noises for PM Phi (-360- - +360-).

Highly versatile, fully analogue, programmable & voltage-controlled filter synth module
Notes: The CS-8 VCF02 is a very versatile, fully analogue, programmable and voltage-controlled filter (VCF). It is capable of processing all sorts of audio signals. It is designed for mounting into a 3U Eurorack with an internal +/- 12V power supply.

This module is capable of producing 121 different filter types (27 low-pass, 18 high-pass, 13 band-pass, and 63 all-pass/notch/phase-type filters). External control voltages can be used to control all functions, thus the CS-8 VCF02 can be remote-controlled by sequencers, foot pedals/switches etc. The CS-8 VCF02 features some unique and very powerful functions that are entirely new to voltage-controlled filter modules such as emphasize, 2nd harmonic distortion, and drop.

The CS-8 VCF02 features a unique "layer cake" design. This way, its installation depth is reduced to a minimum, compared to other Eurorack modules.

Design and implementation meet highest technical standards concerning usability, sound quality, and signal-to-noise ratio. The front panel is made from an anodised and printed piece of aluminium sheet metal of 2 mm gauge. The entire design and production work was done in Germany.

Programmable VCF module
Notes: The CS-8 VCF1E is a very versatile, fully analogue, programmable and voltage-controlled filter (VCF). It is capable of processing all sorts of audio signals. It is designed for mounting into a 3U Eurorack with an internal +/- 12V power supply.

Basically, two modes are possible. The classical filter mode with 12 selectable different functions (low-, high-, band-passes) and the phaser mode also with 12 phaser-sounding combining modes (4x phaser-, 2x low-, 2x high,- 4x band-passes).

For the classic filter mode, 3 different resonance modes are available - these generate different sound impressions for each filter function. So, there is no rule how to sound a certain selected resonance mode. It depends on the selected function.

With a further 4-pos. rotary switch the resonance emphasize is dialable, which provides further sound nuances. This is also equipollent to the amplitude of the self-oscillation. An illuminated tactile switch allows to add a unique 2nd harmonic distortion to the resonance sound.

The frequency range (cutoff) goes from 2 Hz to 40 kHz. A gain controller allows input-to-output gains from -20 db to 0 db. A clip LED light up just before output clipping.

Design and implementation meet highest technical standards concerning usability, sound quality, and signal-to-noise ratio. The front panel is made from powdered and printed piece of aluminium sheet metal of 2 mm gauge. The entire design and production work was done in Germany.

Complex noise oscillator module - 14HP
Notes: The Interstellar Radio is a faulty transmission line providing several varieties of destructive effects as well as acting as a non-volts/octave complex oscillator when no input is provided.

Interstellar radio converts an audio signal from the input jack to a high frequency pulse train and then back to an audio signal with voltage control over the clock for the up conversion (CARRIER) as well as the down conversion (DEMODULATOR), like a voltage controlled radio transceiver designed for poor reception.

Manipulating these clocks allows for a variety of aliasing, distortion, and frequency modulation type effects. The output is also sent to a comparator along with the input, and the result is available at the "ERROR" output for a ring modulation type effect.

When no input is provided a DC offset (controllable with the input jack) sets a frequency for the up conversion (which is effectively a VCO), the down conversion acts as a modulation oscillator allowing for a fairly radical form of frequency modulation. Two audio signals can be inserted into the clock input jacks and modulate each other in the same way.

Dual chaotic oscillator with 2 CV inputs, Gate output with adjustable threshold & two sets of X & Y outputs
Notes: The Dreamboat is a dual chaotic oscillator with 2x CV inputs, a Gate output with adjustable threshold, and two sets of X and Y outputs. There are two oscillator sections to the module, the top half is an audio rate chaotic oscillator and the lower half outputs LFO rate signals. With its five outputs, the Dreamboat allows you to connect to plenty of modules all at once, allowing all kinds of modulation and listening possibilities. When used with an oscilloscope or a scope program in X/Y mode, the Dreamboat allows you to view its chaotic attractors in real time.

Allowing for unique rhythms through the use of the gate output, a typical setup might see the Dreamboat involved in a few feedback loops while controlling an ADSR and a VCA with its gate output. When used with TIP-TOP's special dual cables, hearing AND viewing the Dreamboat at the same time is a snap.

The Dreamboat is easy to use, just turn the knobs until the Chaos starts, then add modulation, cross-couple the two sections, and bring in a VCO or Noise module. For even more far out sounds, we recommend the use of two or even three Dreamboats for a truly powerful setup. Though the Dreamboat is not an oscillator in a way you might be used to, it will push you into new musical directions.

From subtle to destructive, from scary to absurd, the Dreamboat is a strange bird.

Use the Dreamboat to create everything from strange fogs to banging pots and pans, use it to explore Chaos or simply to have a truly unique module in your setup.

Snazzy FX recommends Gleick's classic book CHAOS for those who want to know a bit more about what is going on behind the scenes in this module.

Dual multiplier equipped with two four-quadrant multipliers - 8HP
Notes: Not a multiple - a multiplier! A four quadrant multiplier is similar to the classic ring modulator. Use it to create sideband rich spectral soundscapes, create pitched noise, use it with DC for tremolo FX, or use it with integrators and summers to pull off analog computer patches! Really this module rewards those who enjoy experimentation.

Unique to the dual multiplier is the normalization of the top section straight into the bottom section, so even with just two signals plugged in, you already get a few different results.

Low-pass filter module - 8HP
Notes: Take advantage of the instability!

The Eternal Spring Filter is quite different than most filters. It belongs to that category of sound modifiers which could be called an "effect", which is to say that it doesn't just filter the sound in a regular manner but also adds a considerable amount of edge/personality. At times it sounds like a wavefolder and when you plug a nice slow LFO into the CV input, you can really get some intense sounds out of it.

At lower drive settings, this filter adds noise, grit, and harmonics, while at higher settings the sound of the filter takes over and replaces your input with sparks and sludge. It sounds great on synth leads, on basslines, and really adds a lot of movement to drones. It is a weird beast which is capable of some different sounds than other filters in your system. On top of all of that, this filter is not temperature compensated and has plenty of musical instability. The cut-off and Q move around nicely to add energy to your incoming audio.

Triple Gain module featuring three differently designed, transistor-based VCA's, plus a sum output
Notes: With the Hi Gain you can enter a world of sharp corners, rusty springs, and broken floorboards. Enter a world of trash. A world of scraping hi-hats, smashed up kicks, beautiful clipped white noise, broken file cabinets, disused railway cars, and super acidic basslines. Perfect for techno, for noise, for some punch, or for just plain experimenting, the Hi Gain is not for those seeking a clean, precise, VCA, or for those on a quest for ultra-linear gain stages. In fact, if you need nice and clean, we recommend you stay away.

8-bit wavetable oscillator for Eurorack with Uni-Five companion module
Notes: The Oscitron is an 8-bit wavetable oscillator for Eurorack. It is based around the Atmegatron audio engine but also has a lot of different features, which make it more suited to the modular environment.

One of the key differences is the ability to capture wavetables via an audio input. There is also a "continuous capture" mode which produces vocoder-style effects.

The resolution of the audio engine can be altered from the Atmegatron's 32 sample wavetables, down to 16 and up to 128 samples, creating radically different timbres.

There is a clock input that can be routed to many different parameters. There are 5 CV inputs for controlling the most common parameters. 16 patches can be stored internally. As with the Atmegatron, different software can be uploaded to the Oscitron. A port of the Odytron software is ready for release in the first quarter of 2017.

Uni-Five companion module:

The Oscitron comes bundled with the Uni-Five companion module. This is a utility module that takes 2 bipolar +5/-5V signals and 1 unipolar 8V signal and converts them to unipolar 5V signals, suitable for the Oscitron's inputs. This is most useful for bipolar LFOs and envelopes. There is also an attenuator on each input. The modules are also available separately.

Play:

- 8-bit wavetable module
- Unique wavetable PWM Synthesis audio engine.
- Quick and intuitive controls, no complex menu systems
- White aluminium faceplate with walnut side panels
- Nearly all parameters controllable by CV
- 16 preset sounds that can be overwritten with your own patches

Program:

- Huge selection of waveforms and filters
- Sample your own wavetables using the audio input
- Continuous sampling mode for vocoder-style effects
- Powerful synthesis features that takes Chiptune beyond 80s computer sounds
- Portamento and Quantizer
- Pulse width and phaser controls
- Unique 'wave crusher' effect

Hack:

- Download the open source code from the downloads page
- Download the free Arduino development environment
- Tutorials and forums to help programmers
- Upload software using FTDI cable

Inputs/Outputs:

- 1V/oct for pitch and filter cutoff
- 0-5V CV for pulse width, resonance and phaser
- Clock input (can be configured as extra CV control)
- Standard bipolar audio output
- 10 pin power and 6 pin FTDI programmer headers

8-track sequencer & interface - perfect for composition & live performances
Notes: Hermod brings together a powerful step sequencer, a CV looper, a real-time effect processor, LFO generators and a complete bi-directional MIDI-USB-CV input/output interface.

Record a performance at any time thanks to the CV inputs, the USB HOST, the USB DEVICE and the MIDI input. Create and edit your tracks with the STEP mode and its piano roll and automation view. Generate crazy patterns with the randomization tool.

Hermod is polymetric, it means that each track can have a different length, from 1 step to 64 steps (256 quarter notes). Moreover, you can zoom in to increase the resolution of the step sequencer.

Polymorphic tracks:

Thanks to Hermod architecture, a track can be a simple mono CV/GATE voice, but can be easily configured as a polyphonic track (up to 8 voices), a CV/GATE + velocity + aftertouch track, a modulation + clock track... in order to perfectly fit your Eurorack system!

Sequences and Projects:

The 8 tracks are grouped into one of Hermod's 8 sequences. Every sequence is totally independent and contains a new set of tracks to be played with, for a total of 64 tracks in a single project.

The number of projects is unlimited and the save/load can be done in a flash, allowing you to jump from one song to the next in your live performance.

Dynamic effects:

All the fun in Hermod resides in its effect system, allowing you to transform input signals, whether it's MIDI or CV. You can stack on each track up to 8 real-time effects: Quantize, Swing, Arpeggiator, Glide, Harmonizer, Delay, Chance, Scale, LFO... Experiment with the effects position and parameters to generate eccentric melodies!

Every effect parameters can be edited in the EFFECTS mode, or with CC messages & CV inputs, thanks to the modMatrix.

MIDI-USB-CV interface:

Full connectivity: control Hermod with plug-and-play midi USB devices, midi keyboards, computers or other Eurorack CV systems.

Hermod is also a great midi hub, allowing you to sequence midi synthesizers/drum machines and computer's virtual instruments. Of course, Hermod can be perfectly paired with Pyramid or other hardware and software sequencer, in order to benefit from its CV/GATE outputs.

With Hermod's rock-solid clock, this module becomes a great synchronization tool, for all your setup!

Bass & drum synthesizer voice module - 14HP
Notes: The Entity Bass Drum is a complete and versatile synthesizer voice geared for designing a huge array of bass drum, percussive and synth sounds. Finally, a truly deep tool for creating analog bass drum, bass lines and other percussive effects is here!

The design consists of a high fidelity resonant filter, 2 stage slope generator (rise/fall) with independent slope shaping, a high fidelity VCA and discrete transistor saturation circuitry. Every parameter on the Entity Bass drum is voltage controllable.

By applying a trigger of any length and at least 2V amplitude, we excite the resonant filter to produce a percussive sine wave. The pitch control tunes the output with a range of 8Hz to around 2.2KHz. Both higher and lower levels are achievable using the FM input for modulation etc. The internal filter will track 3-4 octaves reliably and the tracking device is temperature compensated.

The slope generator (ENV) can be switched into the circuit via the 3 way switch below the FM LVL control. This control is a bipolar attenuator which affects the level of the slope generator and/or external modulator that affects the pitch of the output.
The 3 way switch selects FM, FM+ENV or just ENV as a mod source.

The rise/fall envelope is a two stage function generator. The controls provide slope timing from 1ms to about a minute. To the right of these controls is the shaping section where logarithmic, linear and exponential slope shapes are selected independently for the two envelope stages.

The envelope is designed to re-trigger at a set point. This allows for changing dynamics to occur to pitch and amplitude when the slope times are greater than the output transient time. For instance the sound can vary between any number of triggers that fire before the envelope set point is reached. Setting the slope time fast enough (below roughly 1 o'clock) provides for nominal operation. Settings will vary depending on trigger and ring decay timing.

The envelope can also be used exclusively or in a more complex patch via a direct +ENV output. Additionally, a novel DUCK output provides a means to control external VCAs - to work like slow compressors. DUCK is an inverted and positively offset version of the +ENV out. This keeps VCAs open when the envelope is off and effectively 'ducks' the VCA when the envelope fires. Of course, mod sources for these outputs are not limited to VCAs...

BODY is a subtle, yet novel control. This control simulates the tightness of a drum head. All the way tight, we get a softer and somewhat muted sound, to the right we achieve a more flabby sound. The middle region is the sweet spot for a nearly perfect resonant drum. BODY can have a greater effect depending on the other parameters and can be very useful for fine tuning the sound in a mix and designing original drum sounds.

RING controls the resonant decay time. Both short and plucky and an infinite ring are obtainable. The filter is tuned so that it will always resonate a little, even when RING control is all the way down.

Before the output section, we have the discrete transistor saturation. We like this because of the vintage low end distortion from overdriven class-A discrete amplifiers. This one is tuned a bit more aggressively and just a touch is necessary to add some bite. However, you can go over the top and get brutal if you so desire... ;-)
The saturator will overdrive the output stage for more of a hard clipping effect that can be tuned out by adjusting the output level control without sacrificing signal amplitude - its a hot signal by intention.

The OUTPUT section is a parallel signal processor design. The OUTPUT control blends the nominal output with a secondary input (or nothing) depending on the 2 way switch setting below the control and/or whether an external signal is patched into the AMP CV input. In 'AMP' mode, the OUTPUT control works like a volume control. If a signal is active on the AMP CV input, the control will blend between the nominal output and the CV control level. Similarly, in 'ENV' mode we get the same blending action using the internal envelope.

The VCA can also be accessed directly via the A-MIX input. This allows you to use the output section as a standalone VCA (modulated via the envelope or not) or to mix other sounds with the Entity. Feedback patching is a possibility using a stackable or mult to feed the output into the A-MIX input. This produces a juicy distortion effect of a different flavour, you may like it.

The filter can be used independently or in combination with the nominal output via the F-MIX input. This input is used as an aux trigger input that is sensitive to pulse/trigger width. As the effect is less dramatic than the main trigger, dynamic rhythms are achievable using both inputs and creative triggering.

Versatile percussion synth voice module
Notes: The Entity Percussion Synthesizer is a complete and versatile voice module, geared for designing a huge array of percussion, bass and lead sounds and well suited for processing external audio sources.

The design consists of a high fidelity resonant band pass filter, two voltage controlled decay envelopes, multi-mode noise generator, a high fidelity VCA and a voltage controlled diode wave multiplier. Every parameter on the Entity Percussion is voltage controllable.

Features and controls:

SOUND SHAPING:

BODY control simulates the tightness of a drum head. From soft and muted to flabby and bass heavy.

PITCH affects the frequency of the resonant filter. The nominal control range is from about 8Hz to 2.2kHz. This range is expanded upon use of internal and external control voltage sources.

HARMONICS increases the number of overtones heard via the main resonant sound source. Subtle to extreme. A substantial function of the Entity PS.

RING controls the resonant decay time, independently from the modulation controls. Both short and plucky and very long rings are obtainable. The filter is tuned so that it will always resonate a little, even when RING control is all the way down.

OUTPUT section controls the resonator volume level and the overall output level when NOISE-FILTER mode in enabled. MIX switch selects processing the internal resonator, external source via the EXT IN jack or a mix of both, greatly enhancing the sound capabilities of the Entity PS.

NOISE generator inspired by the Quantum Rainbow 2, with three select-able noise modes - WHITE, PINK and FILTER. FILTER mode routes the noise into the resonator's signal path - to be processed through the resonant filter, harmonics processor and main VCA.

N-LEVEL independently controls the volume and CV level of the noise VCA.

MODULATION:

Two voltage controllable decay envelopes are provided to modulate the frequency and/or volume of the resonator and noise. DECAY controls the FM/VCA decay time of the resonator, N-DECAY controls the VCA decay time of the noise generator.

DELAY provides voltage controlled delay of the resonator DECAY envelope with respect to the noise (N-DECAY) envelope - a useful feature for creating various snare, clap and snap sounds and layering internal and external sources.

FM LVL is a bipolar attenuator for controlling the frequency modulation depth of the resonator. The switch below selects the internal resonator decay envelope, a mix of the decay envelope and external FM CV source, or the external FM CV source only.

DUCK output jack provides an offset and inverted copy of the resonator DECAY envelope for ducking VCAs and other modulation duties.

Additional Features:

PING! button to demo sounds without a trigger source.

RGB LED for visual feedback of trigger, FM and output waveform

All parameters are voltage controllable.

Analog comprehensive random source with 5 unique outputs
Notes: The first module of the Ultra-Random series, the Ultra-Random Analog is a random voltage generator with six random outputs including two clocked stepped random outputs - one with built in logarithmic slew, a third stepped output that toggles between two internal noise sources or whatever is patched into the sample inputs, a fully voltage controllable smooth fluctuating random voltage output, a voltage controllable random gate/noise with 7 selectable levels of randomness and an independent vactrol based voltage controllable integrator - all with a built in 1V/Oct tracking voltage controlled clock. The URA can additionally function as a dual Sample and Hold, capable of wave shaping and sample reducing CV and audio.

The URA was designed to maximize routing options both within the module itself as well as within your modular system.

- Twin analog white noise generator sourced sample and holds: A and B for producing bipolar stepped and slewed random voltages. External input jacks are provided for both units - for processing external signals, random or otherwise. Sample level attenuators provided for each. These units will pass digitized analog white noise at the outputs when high sampling rate is achieved - using an internal or external clock.

- A third stepped output (TOGGLE A/B) provides another unique stepped random output which alternates sampling from two sources in time with the sample clock. This function can additionally splice two external sources together or a single source with one of the internal random sources. In essence, a double throw switch with synchronous sample rate reduction.

- Very smoothly fluctuating random voltage (R-FLUX) provides a very organic random output with voltage controllable (via vactrol) slew speed and voltage controlled output level probability. Internal or external clock timing.

- Random pulse/gate output (R-PULSE) operates from sub-sub audio well into the audio rate for use as a random gate/trigger sequence, additional random clock or digital noise generator. The frequency is variable via panel control and FM (density) input. R-Pulse features 7 selectable levels of randomness through 7 stage divisions. Scroll up/down through divisions. Saves selection every 60 seconds.

- Opto-Integrator - a vactrol based Integrator for smoothing voltages. This integrator features an input jack for processing external signals but processes the R-Pulse output through internal normalization when nothing is patched in. Panel control and CV input provided for altering the integration slope.

- Built in clock with hi and low range selector. Panel speed control and 1V/OCT FM input. Temperature compensated for low drift. Clock output for timing external devices. Clock doubles as a full range pulse VCO.

- External clock input for optionally timing S&H-B, R-FLUX and TOGGLE outputs.

- All packed into a comfortably designed 10hp width.

6-channel audio & CV summing module - 10HP
Notes: LEVELS is a versatile, low-noise six channel summing mixer/attenuator for audio and CV, re-designed by Tim Caswell, which can be used rather effectively in a variety of ways: 6 in 1 out, or two separate mixers: 4 in 1 out, and 2 in 1 out, e. g., when only jacked-in to MIX 5/6 output all input channels pass through; utilizing the 1-4 OUT removes channels 1-4 from the MIX 5/6 output. Handy indeed.

The pots are wired with a logarithmic volume curve that is tuned for use with audio but it will work splendidly with CV as well. Pressing LEVELS into service as a wave-shaper by patching all of the individual OSCILLATION waveform outs (sub, sine, tri, saw, ramp, square) into CHANNEL inputs 1-6, makes for vivid beguiling shapes - a morphable hybrid waveform of your innermost sound designs. Consider pairing the two Modstar modules when building your system.

Potentiometer Potential:
Six attenuation pots control CHANNEL 1, CHANNEL 2, CHANNEL 3, CHANNEL 4, CHANNEL 5, and CHANNEL 6.

Quad digital OSC module - 12HP
Notes: Deeply featured 12hp module with four digital oscillators - each with a selection of 64 waveforms, 7 different processing modes including phase distortion and wave sequencing, and a dedicated volt per octave input. In unison mode, all 4 OSCs can be played via the 1st 1V/O input, by 1V/O inputs 1-4, and widely detuned, or switched to a preset chord formation - a major move beyond the 'one note samba' monophonic, module choreography - scooch over Grainy, Quadnic is cookin' up digi-vittles for four. "Come 'n' git it!" and stay in record: the Quadnic is non-programmable; when the power recycles, the Quad defaults to voice 1 active with current pot positions. All edits are live; all edits are volatile. Exciting. Always fresh.

The Four Oscillator Structure image gets one into the weeds of the sound. Control of all the OSCs parameters globally without sacrificing individual CV control is now a reality: essentially a sensible polyphonic mode with individual CV control. Previous OS Master Modes used only OSC 1 as the controlling CV - the additional mode uses all 4 controlling CVs. Changing stronger together.

Master Matters:
- With MASTER mode switched on, the oscillator responds to it's own CV input
- Oscillators 2 to 4: If Master LED is not lit, the oscillator responds to CV 1, with the pitch control adding +/-1 octave offset
- Oscillator 1 always responds to CV input; the other oscillators follow CV 1 if they are not set to Master
- When all 4 oscillator switches/lights are selected, the Quadnic is in unison mode and all oscillators follow CV 1; the front panel control affects all 4 oscillators
- To get all oscillators to same pitch, adjust the Pitch and Fine controls
- To get all oscillators to play the same sound (they are quite independent), adjust all controls
- All 4 OSC lights on, with Master selected or flashing: unison can detune massively up to 4 octaves
- All 4 OSC lights on, with master not selected: unison and Chord produce chords

Inputs and Outputs:
1V/OCT 1 - Oscillator 1, 1 Volt per octave input. 0-10V input range. Controls the pitch of any other oscillator that is set to Slave mode.
1V/OCT 2 - Oscillator 2, 1 Volt per octave input. 0-10V input range. Only affects oscillator 2 when in Master mode.
1V/OCT 3 - Oscillator 3, 1 Volt per octave input. 0-10V input range. Only affects oscillator 3 when in Master mode.
1V/OCT 4 - Oscillator 4, 1 Volt per octave input. 0-10V input range. Only affects oscillator 4 when in Master mode.
Proc CV - Process CV input. +/-5V input range. One CV input for all oscillators, but can be attenuated for individual oscillators using the Process CV control.

Hi-pass filter module in Eurorack format - 12HP
Notes: Designer Tim Caswell: "The 8106 is a 6db/oct hi-pass filter followed by a recreation of the Roland IR3109 module, which is a 4 pole, 24 db/oct voltage controlled lowpass filter with voltage controlled resonance. Three dual OTAs with similar topology to the BA662 used in the Jupiter 8 (and the IR3109 module) were employed, one amp for the hi-pass filter, four (with added buffers) for the low-pass, and one for the resonance. This filter takes a wide range of input signals, and tracks control voltage extremely well. Tap points are available for 6db, 12db, and 18db/oct. Although the topology is similar to the 4075, the tonality, especially when overdriven, is distinct."

Interface and feature Maestro Greg St. Regis, opted for the 6dB over the 12dB/18dB "tap" for the second filter output, due to its colourful, and starkly contrasting character.

And yes, this INPUT drive hits harder - much faster than our other filters - so there is plenty of dirt to go around, but a familiar and comforting Roland-y quality/tonality/flow is definitely home base, especially with a nice SLIM O top-dead-centre square wave is riotously coursing and pulsing through the 8106's veiny through-hole circuitry.

4-stage Analog Shift Register (ASR) module with built-in quantizer & digital noise generator - 14HP
Notes: The E102 is a 4-tap delay for control voltages (a digital implementation of the Serge ASR - Analog Shift Register). There is also a digital noise generator with 8 different types of noise spectra. With no CV patched into the INPUT jack, the digital noise is sampled. Each clock pulse (internally set by RATE or patched into CLOCK IN) samples the INPUT and stores it as a 14-bit value. Successive clocks then shift the sampled voltage to the next output. The sampled voltage is shifted in the delay line as OUT1 > OUT2 > OUT3 > OUT4. A quad 14-bit DAC drives the outputs with an accuracy of <1mv.

A unique addition to the traditional ASR is the voltage-controlled DELAY. Selectable in 3 ranges, this adds delay stages in-between each output. For example, if DELAY was 2, then it would take 6 additional clocks for the OUT1 to "travel" down the delay line to appear at OUT4. The INPUT is sampled once for each clock, no matter what the DELAY is. The outputs can be quantized to whole-note steps.

The most common use of the E102 is having each OUT drive a VCO. If you have a step sequencer, then use the sequencer's clock into CLOCK IN and the sequencer's CV out to INPUT. The 4 OUTs will then generate a musical canon (like "Row Row Row Your Boat") when driving 4 VCOs. Each VCO will play the same note as the prior clocked output. This is of course assuming DELAY = 1. DELAY is not the same as a 'clock divider': when DELAY is not 1 (say it is 12), then every sample clock, the INPUT is fed into the delay. In this case there are 12 clock-delay stages between each out. If 0.25V was sampled and appears at OUT1, then 12 clocks later that same 0.25V appears at OUT2. There is no delay from INPUT to OUT1. The delays are OUT1 to OUT2, OUT2 to OUT3, and OUT3 to OUT4. OUT1 is a 'traditional' sample/hold.

Dual wavetable LFO with unique Morphing Terrarium technology - 14HP
Notes: The E355 is a 14hp Eurorack module with two LFOs that use our unique morphing algorithm to create over 10,000 different waveforms. the two outputs can vary from one cycle in 12 minutes to 1000Hz, with high and low ranges available. The use of a 24 MHz 32-bit ARM processor means virtually no frequency drift.

The E355 has features to make it useful in both live and in the studio. The two LFOs are "locked" to each other in one of three ways, chosen by a panel switch:

- LFO1 and LFO2 have independent rates and the same waveshape and phase
- LFO2 has independent waveshape but the same rate and phase as LFO1
- LFO1 and LFO2 have the same rate/waveshape but variable phase from 0-360-

LFO1 can be thought of as the "master" LFO as it always has independent rate, FM, and morphing. Each LFO tracks 1v/Oct and all parameters are under voltage control. There are two LEDs that vary in brightness based on output amplitude in 128 levels.

The E355 uses the same morphing engine as the E350 Morphing Terrarium. The transition from one stored wavetable to another is broken down into 4096 calculated waves. There are 3 banks of waves to select from:

- Bank A: basic waves in order of harmonic complexity (sine, triangle, saw up, saw down, 25/50/75% pulses and noise)
- Bank B: the waves in Bank A are repeated in frequency as 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, etc up to 8x. This allows the LFOs to have a very wide range between them if necessary or to use this as a basic audio oscillator (limited to 1khz).
- Bank C: the 64 waves taken from Bank C of the E350 Morphing Terrarium (created by Robert Rich) to go way beyond the ordinary. Sequences of notes, arpeggiated effects, pings, swoops, and lattice phase modulation are just a few of the options contained within. In the audio range these can be harsh, noisy, and crunchy.

There are also two external inputs to either sync the LFOs or to hold ("freeze") the outputs at the current stage of the waveform.

Audio-range digital delay with normal mode, plus tape & BBD emulation - 14HP
Notes: The E580 emulates the classic sounds of digital, BBD (bucket brigade), and tape-based delays with four parameters under voltage control. This 14hp wide Eurorack module accepts either +/-12V standard power or +/-15V MOTM/power. Using a 40MHz DSP and 24-bit codec, the E580 recreates the pitch-shift modulation of BBDs, including the variable bandwidth and noise floor, without costly and scarce BBD ICs. In Tape Mode, wow & flutter, tape saturation and non-linear distortions emulate classic tape units without the bulk and maintenance. There are two simultaneous audio outputs: a straight delay and a variable tapped delay. The tap position is a percentage of the main delay time. This allows very short delays (<350µs) as well as long delays (750ms). Both tap position offset and main delay time are voltage-controlled over a -5v to +5v range.

Feedback is jumper-selectable from either the tapped position or the main delay. This flexibility can generate standard rhythmic delays (feedback from main delay) or a series of pre-delay reflections (tapped delay) which sound very different from each other.

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

Wave multiplier & sub-octave generator - 12HP
Notes: The Fold Processor is a voltage controlled wave multiplier and sub-octave generator. The circuit is based on a classic diode design that adds odd harmonics by folding the incoming signal, followed by subdivided square waves.

The wave folder creates new waveforms from the standard sine, triangle, sawtooth and square waves, has a dedicated output jack and CV input with an attenuator making it very easy to create beautifully animated folding sounds. Adjustable voltage controlled Inject alters the bias point creating an even wider palette of sounds.

The subdivide generator squares the fold output generating 4 more sounds spaced one octave apart, each with its own gain knob and mixed to the Subdivide output jack. Mixing the four can create anything from discordant square wave swarms to sweet harmonic oscillator stacks, from a stable square version of the folded wave to freaky PLL like glitched slides.

Overall results can sound evil at times and sweet at others, a true multi-faced devil.

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 synthesizer 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.

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.

Snare drum module made from the TR808's circuit adapted for Eurorack use - 4HP wide
Notes: Introducing the SD808, part of our new series of drum modules that brings analog percussion to the modular synth world, instantly turning your system into a self-contained music machine.

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.
