At Superbooth 2022, Tiptop Audio is previewing the next modules in its official line of Buchla 200 Series Eurorack modules.
The first batch of the 245t Sequential Voltage Source and 257t Dual Voltage Processor, above, are in production and are expected to ship this Summer. Both are Eurorack translations of classic Buchla 200 Series modules from ’70s.
Tiptop Audio also shared an update on their version of the 292 Quad Lo Pass Gate, which will feature handmade vactrols that they say will “satisfy the ears of the most die-hard Buchla bongo fans”, adding “Users will be able to build out their 200t systems with the classic Buchla signal chain.”
In addition to the Tiptop Audio & Buchla news, Tiptop announced that they are introducing an all-black Mantis Eurorack case.
The new black Mantis is identical in specs and price to the original. This case is made with black ABS with an overcoating to ensure a homogenous shade in various light conditions.
The first batch of black Mantis is limited and will be available very soon with additional quantities that should be ready toward the end of Summer. The gray Mantis will also be available again, and they plan to have them shipping in large quantities in the coming months.
Finally, Tiptop Audio has added black faceplates for the following modules: Miso, Forbidden Planet, Z8000, Z2040, Mix7. The black Z8000 is now released and the others will be sent to retailers in the coming weeks.
