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.

audio input: external in (tuner input)
oscillator outputs: sine, triangle, sawtooth, pulse

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.

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.

Introducing the HATS808, 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.
The HATS808 is the TR-808’s real analog Closed and Open Hi-Hats circuits adapted for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer format and was tested to sound like a fresh machine coming out of the assembly line back in the 80’s. The adaptation to modular format has allowed us to add some special features per each voice such as independent accent levels, high-powered gain stage, and dual-input pulse-shaper. A filter Q knob and VC-Q were added on top of the main band pass filter to allow tuning the sound but also to get crushed tone and self oscillation at the knob’s max position — all this without compromising the original signature sound of the TR-808.
The HATS808 sizzling sound is made by six analog square wave oscillators mixed and process by band pass filters. This multi-oscillator design is what gives the 808 Hi-Hats their unique metallic noise character and also makes each HATS808 sound slightly 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, 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 through distortion and clipping. On each input, we have designed 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 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 features provide for integrating of this amazing legendary sound generator into your modular synth with ease, unleashing the power of real analog drums.

“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.
/Dual Pitch Shifter /Dual Delay Shifter /Interval Shifter 1 /Interval Shifter 2 /Dual Micro Shift
