Z2040 VCF - 8HP

Tiptop Audio Z2040 VCF

The Z2040 VCF is Tiptop audio’s 4-pole analog filter based on that of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 in all its creamy elegance. The filter is capable of exceptionally crisp leads and thick basslines when paired with an appropriate EG (for example, Tiptop’s Z4000). When at full resonance, the is capable of functioning as a since-core VCO that excels at overtly percussive sounds.
