Tiptop Audio presents QuantiZer, a melody generation module that mobilizes modern electronics in tandem with DSP for the precise tuning of analog VCOs. A quick glance at the front panel reveals that the module is packed with dense functionality, making it both playable and powerful. QuantiZer's slider can be configured to "play" notes, transpose within a single or five octave range, and impart portamento. There's also a 12-note keyboard that can be configured for manual playback, transposition, adding and subtracting notes, and a host of other useful functions.
Integrated major and minor key designations give users the ability to switch scales on the fly, with an overt emphasis on playability. This makes meaningful musical progressions a synch. Additionally, the module features 24 user-customizable scales and a "sketch pad" for recording and playing back manually-entered keys and slider movements in synchronization with an external clock and/or reset signal. This works particularly handily with SyncBus, as it chains the module's recording capabilities to the Circadian Rhythms for advanced recording and playback.
