  2. Unlocking Unprecedented Motion Complexity: A Comprehensive Guide to the Tiptop Audio Z8000 Matrix Sequencer/Programmer

    The Tiptop Audio Z8000 Matrix Sequencer/Programmer is a unique modulation source that allows for unprecedented motion complexity. This Eurorack module features 16 knobs that can be accessed by ten sequencers with their own clock, direction, and reset inputs. The Z8000 can simultaneously modulate up to 10 CV parameters poly-rhythmically, with one knob affecting all 10 CV outputs. With its 30 gate and clock inputs and 10 CV outputs, the possibilities are endless, and all clock inputs can even be driven at audio rates. The Z8000 pairs well with other modules such as the Trigger Riot and Circadian Rhythms, and the QuantiZer can extend its capabilities as a high-precision 1V/Oct note sequencer. A new version of the Z8000 maintains the original circuitry but adds output range adjustment switches on the back and Tiptop’s new colored look, which helps highlight the sections on the front.
