Z3000 Smart VCO MKII - 14HP


The Tiptop Audio ‘Z3000’ is an all-analog, voltage-controlled oscillator that gives users the ability to implement synthesis techniques in a controlled and planned manner, turning modular systems into even more powerful musical instruments.

The Z3000 is bilingual - equally fluent in the language of sound (frequency) and music (notes and octaves). Its intelligence comes from its built-in arithmetic processor, which allows for relevant data to be displayed constantly, taking the guesswork out of tuning modular rigs.

The Z3000’s analog core generates four waveforms with substantial character, giving users the sound signature that can only be created by a true analog VCO. The Z3000’s unique circuitry allows for high levels of synthesis complexity such as frequency modulation, all while maintaining excellent wide-range tracking and without falling into chaos. The Z3000 brings a world of new possibilities that will give rise to a whole new sound spectra within users’ modular synthesizers.
