The Spring Waves extends the Z-DSP's effect palette by Physical Modeling algorithms which simulate the behavior of excited natural objects like pipes, strings, membranes, springs, metal rods or wood blocks.
Six effects on this cartridge are specialized on Waveguide Synthesis which is ahead of the karpulss-Strong synthesis. Two effects are spring models which emulate a mass-spring system with their physical properties like force, motion, friction and mechanic limits.

An innovative and unique trigger sequencer with memory and an entirely new concept. It has an internal a clock generator but can be synched to an external clock, too. Eight channels process clocks, each by passing four clock dividers in a row. Each clock divider has manipulators like probability of trigger output, clock shift, clock multiplication and pulse width. Combine thee parameters and you´ll get very diversified and living trigger sequences.
The eight channels are laid out in four columns and four rows. In Matrix Mode the columns and rows interact with each other as the controls affect both. In Independent Mode you can select the channel you want to eit by pressing the Mute/Sel button. the Trigger Riot has an integrated precise clock generator but can be synched to an external clock of course. the tempo can be set in BPM. Besides that a Cycle Mode is available with adjustable start adn reset point,
Each channel has four clock dividers. Following parameters can be set for each of those:
- Divide: sets the clock division
- Step: allows setting of a single trigger on a given count
- Probability: sets the probability a trigger will fire
- Speed: sets the time base in internal clocks
- Clock Shift: delays the division by full clocks
- Time Shift: delays the division by fractions of a clock
- Pulse Width: duty cycle of the trigger/gate from 0% to 100%
Combining this parameters will lead to overlapping of clocks, cancelling, shifting and will result in interesting rhythmical structures in the end.
Please check the extensive operation manual for more details, tips and tricks.
The Trigger Riot understands TipTop's own SyncBus which carries clock, reset and preset data and is used for synchronize multiple TipTop Syncbus compatible devices like Circadian Rhythm. Connect it with the optionally available SyncBus-Cable.

The Z2040 is a discrete clone of the Prophet 5`s low pass filter with come additonal features like voltage controlled gain and resonance. The gain parameter allows for overdriving the filter.
Voltage controlled, 24dB/octave steep, 4-pole lowpass filter based on the original US patent of the SSM2040 filter chip from Sequential Circuits' Prophet 5 Rev2.
FM is the cutoff modulation parameter with a voltage controllable modulation depth (VC-FM)
The gain is adjustable and until the 1h position (marked with “0dB”) the filter is pretty smooth but above that the sound gets more and more overdriven. A VCA pre-filter makes the gain voltage controllable; alternatively you can route the VCA post-filter with a jumper.

The Z3000 is an innovative, intelligent all-analog Voltage Controlled Oscilaltor with an integrated tuner, linear and exponential FM, two sync methods and waveshaping on the sine wave. A proven and tested classic!
VCO with arithmetic processor that analyzes the frequency once per second.The display shows the current frequency – depending on the chosen mode the VCO frequency is shown as frequency in Hertz, note value or octave range. The external audio input offers the ability to use the arithmetic processor for tuning other VCOs.
Of course, the Z3000 has manual and voltage controlled pulse width modulation and the waveforms sine, triangle, pulse and sawtooth.
Besides the hard sync input for synching the VCO using square or sawtooth waves there is an additional Hard Sync Modulation input (HSM). This will not only accept any waveform but any audio signal which will modulate and distort the waveforms of the synchronised Z3000.
Additionaly there are 3 FM inputs, two exponential and a linear one. The CV inputs FM2 and Linear FM share a common attenuator. Frequency range of the Z3000 is 0.7Hz – 30kHz.
The version 2 is now built with SMD components and thus it´s PCB is very flat (pcb parallel to the faceplate). By the use of modern transistors the tracking got much more exact. The sawtooth now sounds a bit better and there´s a new feature: VC waveshaping on the sine and triangle wave! It blends from “trashy sawtooth” to sine/triangle.

“Time Fabric” is an effect card for TipTop's Z-DSP which is specialized in pitch shifting FX. The algorithm used resembles these of early pitch shifters and harmonizers from the late 1970ies. There are eight effects like dual or microtonal pitch shifters, with common or individual delay time control, pitch shifters with quantized intervals and some with different routing of the delay and the shifter.

MIXZ is a low cost analog multi-channel mixing module for mixing audio, CV and gate signals with an excellent linear response and low noise. balancing a clear visual layout and multiple mixers 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 per 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 ahh? Although this technique doesn't stand for a low noise mix, we found it to be useful for some applications including the mixing of our drum modules, which all have a bus-mix enabled output. the result is that all your drum modules are always available and mixed on the master out of the MIXZ with a flip of a switch, saving you the time and cables to repatch sounds again and again, while keeping the channels of MIXZ’s mixer A or B 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 10HP.
