ONE handles external CV through a user-selectable multi-function jack. Pitch is the main control with two modes available: Free Pitch allows for fine tuning of the playback rate, great for adding subtle vibrato or wild tape speed effects; Quantized Pitch maps CV to the standard 12-tone system over 3.5 octaves and is ideal for melodic content. CV can also be used to sequence through files off the SD card allowing far more varied sounds from a single source, almost like an entire percussion section behind the slim panel.
Although originally designed to play tightly with our analog drums and envelopes, ONE’s rich sound quality encouraged us to make it work in a variety of other applications that are less demanding of sub millisecond timing response. The extra headroom at the core of the ONE makes features such as Gated Playback, Looping, and Triggering with fades in and out possible, accommodating different types of sound sources from drum loops to polysynth chords to noise sources and other yet- imagined uses.
ONE offers another useful dimension since it can play CV signals too. Drop in a card with LFO signals, random CV, slopes and envelopes for a whole set of new control and modulation possibilities.
ONE is as simple to use as it is affordable and plays extremely well with it’s analog cousins – our vision for bringing samples into the modular world.
Sample Playback and Manipulation for Eurorack
Add sample playback capabilities to your Eurorack synth rig, with the Tiptop Audio ONE module. It comes with a VCTRS SD card loaded with 60 custom sound samples by Glitchmachines, as well as an SD card adapter so you can load your own 16- or 24-bit mono WAV samples too. And Tiptop Audio is working with top sound designers around the world to offer even more sample content. Sub-millisecond timing response allows your samples to respond to triggers without any perceptible latency. And at only 4hp wide, there's definitely room to add sample playback to your modular synth with the Tiptop Audio ONE Eurorack module.
Transparent sample playback with ultra-low latency
With the ONE sample player module in Trigger mode, no artificial processing (such as click removal, gain normalization, or anything else) is applied, giving you truly transparent playback. It supports high resolution 24-bit/96kHz files and latency as low as 0.25ms once it's triggered.
Multifunction CV input for creative control
There are two ways the ONE module's CV input can control the pitch of sample playback: Free mode allows fine pitch adjustments for adding vibrato or tape-speed effects, while Quantize mode maps your CV input to the standard 12-tone system across 3.5 octaves so you can play samples melodically. You can also use a CV signal to sequence through samples stored on the SD card, with the potential for extremely complex-sounding sound design.
Not just for drum sounds
While its fast response makes ONE perfect for playback of drum and percussion sounds, its transparent audio quality makes it suitable for any type of sample playback. Features including gated playback, looping, and triggering with fade ins/outs makes ONE a creative playback engine for synth chords and pads, drum and instrument loops, or any other sample you want to integrate with your synth modules. Synth tweakers at Sweetwater are especially excited that ONE can even play back LFO and CV signals stored on the SD card to modulate your other Eurorack modules. Additional sample cards will also be made available as Tiptop continues collaborating with top sound designers around the world.
