SUPERBOOTH 2024: Tiptop Audio - Triax 8 & More

video upload by sonicstate

"At Superbooth 2024, Gur at Tiptop Audio showcased their latest innovations in the world of modular synthesis, introducing the range of new ART polyphonic modules and utilities that are set to revolutionize the way musicians interact with their modular systems. Vortex 6 *, a PPG Wave oscillator, *Octopass Poly Filter*, *Octostages Poly Envelope and Octogain are all set to begin shipping straight after Superbooth 2024.

All these polyphonic modules peak to each other using ART*, Tiptops polyphonic signal, and this signal travels through the *Polytip patch cords. Gur also revealed some new utilities, including *M*, a Polytip Mult.

Next Gur revealed the Triax8*, a fully analog polyphonic oscillator featuring 16 true analog oscillators designed by the renowned *Dave Rossum and his colleagues at SSI*. The *Triax8 offers a rich and diverse sound palette, allowing users to create anything from beautiful pads to classic vintage analog tones. The oscillator also boasts a linear FM with true zero, enabling users to experiment with frequency modulation and create complex and evolving sounds.

Triax 8 Available soon.

All prices can be found on the Tiptop Audio website."

Press announcment/release follows:

Polyphonic modular system:

Are you ready for a new chapter in modular synthesis? Soon after Superbooth we will announce preorders and start shipping the first set of the fully Polyphonic modules: Vortex6, Octopass, Octostages, Octogain, Octo I/O and the Polytip patch cables that are used to patch them.

Buchla and Tiptop Audio 200t systems:

Moving forward with our collaboration with Buchla we are demoing a complete 200t system at Superbooth. The system is housed in cool wood-like Mantis cases with a vintage touch. These systems will be available later this year.

Ambient Synthesizer Textures with the Moog Polymoog, Oberheim OB-X and Yamaha DX-7.

video upload by Remco Rones

"I first made a track with the Oberheim OB-X and Yamaha DX-7 synthesizers and recorded this on cassette. Then I processed the mixdown with lowpass and resonator filters of the mighty Polymoog. Live take, no programming."

"The new LUMAMIX it's the last addiction to the Lumanoise family, a four channel mixer with send\return and a resonant equalizer, inspired by the Polymoog resonator section.
Available also in euro rack format 8HP, audio from the camera, more infos:"

"Lumamix has four jack\mini jack audio input, jack\mini jack send\return, the send out it's pre the resonant equalizer and the return can be seen as 5° input.

The main output it's mono jack or stereo mini jack, all the channels go through the resonant equalizer where you can select the type of filter, low pass, band pass, high pass and the frequency range low, medium, high. The equalizer can resonate, and the cut-off can be controlled via the Light Dependent Resistor, the LDR can be activated with the switch.

The gain knob set the level before the equalizer.

We can also offer the Lumamix in Euro Rack format.

The Resomix 8HP with 3 input, send\return and cv control over the cutoff frequency."

via this auction

"Resonator is a Polymoog inspired formant filter that is intended to emulate static resonances that are typical for acoustic instruments. Its three non-overlapping bands have frequency, gain and emphasis or resonance controls.

All three bands can be switched between Low pass, High pass and two Band pass modes (Band pass "notch").

All functions are working except the high frequency band when in BP2 mode."

You can find additional posts featuring the Polymoog Resonator here. The late Jurgen Haible designed the original clone.

JSI Polymoog Resonator

via this auction

"JSI Polymoog Resonator desktop module.

It's essentially the resonator section from a Moog Polymoog.

Here's some info from the JSI website:

'Resonator is a Polymoog inspired formant filter that is intended to emulate static resonances that are typical for acoustic instruments. Its three non-overlapping bands have frequency, gain, and emphasis or resonance controls.

All three bands can be switched between Low pass, High pass, and two Band pass modes (Band pass 'notch').'"

JSI also makes the PROGUE, Moog Rogue & Prodigy desktop synth. This is the first post to feature the JSI Resonator. Curious if it's based on the JH Resonator.

Polymode drone demo - Voltage Modular


"Another excellent module for Voltage Modular, from Cherry Audio. Kind of a whole synth actually rather than just one module. It's based on the Polymoog, although it has a lot of added features because it's modular, which means you can throw half a dozen LFOs at the resonators, say, if you would ever feel like doing such a ridiculous thing. But who would ever think of doing something like that anyway?

I put together a fizzing and buzzing and moving around drone patch today. It uses the Polymode module, far too many LFOs, and a reverb. Everything's internal to the Voltage Modular app, with nothing external except for an Arturia Keystep, on which I pressed only two keys for the whole thing. You can of course make much more than drones with the Polymode but as soon as I saw all those control voltage jacks on the resonator I knew what I had to do.

The Polymode module sounds great, is quite useful, and is surprisingly inexpensive. Not many of us will ever get our hands on a Polymoog but the Polymode synth module is certainly within the reach of far more of us.

Polymoog undergoing restoration

Published on Jun 12, 2019 SynthDan1

"In April 2019, against my better judgement, my friend Martin and I purchased a broken Polymoog (but aren't they all?). We've fixed issues with the power supply, octave divider chips, and a multiplexer chip in the resonator section. We've replaced all the LEDs and dismantled, cleaned, and lubricated every single slider. There are still a few minor issues (aren't there always?) but the Polymoog has roared back to life, and you can see and hear how great this instrument has become."

Yamaha CS80 Strings - processed through 3 band Resonator...

Published on Feb 4, 2017 noddyspuncture

"Here I have processed my CS80 (#2) through a three band 'Resonator'. Very much like the Korg PS-3100 & PS-3300 resonators and also the one in the Polymoog - but with a lot more control over parameters..! I am only using the CS80's preset string patches with some slight after touch on the oscillators and later on I add the ring modulator."

Polymoog Resonator Dotcom module build (by Synthpro)

Published on Mar 30, 2016 synthpro

"This is an idea I have had for a while but finally had a drive to try it. I had a very sick polymoog board and turned it into a dotcom rack module for a friend.

Still working the bugs out of the circuit but believe it is going to work very well once complete."

Larry Fast Polymoog 203a Vintage Analog Synth SN 3348 Demo

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.
Published on Feb 23, 2015 Sjobeck7

via this auction

"This Polymoog is the Synthesizer version, not the preset keyboard version. ( you can dial up those sounds as well with this one) In all honesty, it is in exemplary condition! Once owned by Larry Fast of Synergy Serial # 3348. He also owned a prototype Polymoog too. I had $800 exactly worth of service done to it by a qualified synth tech who used to work for Moog in the 70s to get it to where it is now, roughly 95-98% which is uncommonly good for these synthesizers if you know anything about these guys! :) Also, this is a later model, one of the last production runs, which is good because they ironed out most of the bugs by then. I will provide the receipt I received for the repair work. I have not had any problems with this synth, since the work was completed 4 years ago! I will provide at first a rough video demo, followed by a more detailed one which will go over all the Waveforms, notes, VCF section, Resonator section, Trigger in/outs ( you can run another synth or drum machine through its filter)
Variation Mode ( sound building ) Mixing, splitting keyboard, Sample and Hold, A D S R, Pitch shift, tunings, multiple and individual volume controls, ribbon controller, Cutoff, Modulation, and so forth and so on. All of these functions listed above work! A couple of the LEDS do not light up! All 71 keys sound cleanly on all waveforms with the exception of one note, which does not sound on the sawtooth waveform. However, you can combine waveforms and then it resonates at an equal volume. Lastly, however beautiful sounding and iconic these synthesizers are, they are also notorious for not liking to be moved! When for example I move mine from the first floor to the 3rd floor I have to turn it at an angle, when this occurs most times the polycards become somewhat dislodged. I usually only have to apply a small amount of pressure to the roof of the keyboard, to get the synth back to normal! Really funny actually, and it never fails to kick it back in gear. This being said, I would MUCH Prefer not to ship this synthesizer due to its delicate nature. Pick up is most welcomed, and you could even demo it for as long as you want and then afterwards press the magic "buy it now" button! Absolutely NO SHIPPING OVER SEAS!!! Sold As/Is NO RETURNS"

Moog Polymoog Keyboard Synthesizer 203a Prototype Museum Piece

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

via the seller: "Well here it folks. I have been holding onto this bad boy for awhile now. Its time for the world to see it. This is one of a few early and prototype Polymoogs I acquired from the estate of Anthony Marchese. He was instrumental in the development of the Polymoog. As well as the X-1 fighter jet. But that's a different story. You may remember the "Polypreset" I sold a while back. This is from the same collection. This appears to be an early mock up of the 203A. It has allot of fully developed parts in it. That are common to just about all 280a's and 203a's. However. The center resonator board is completely hand built. There is also a second hand built board behind the output bank. The other thing unique about this machine is the interface. The left side of the interface is not the same as the production units. This unit does work. Although it does need work. I was able to sound out of all but 3 keys. All voices work. Though they need the 'keyboard response' section switched to variable. In preset mode less than half the voices work. The sound from the machine is less than perfect. But hey its a Polymoog that has not been serviced. Cosmetically the piece shows its age. It can be restored or left as is for collector value. Please check the pics closely for condition. This really belongs in a synth museum somewhere..."

Polymoog 203a Vintage Analog Synthesizer

YouTube Published on Oct 3, 2012 by Sjobeck7

"Recorded / improvised with my Roland CR-68 (Compu Rhythm) on minimal setting.
From the Polymoog I had the direct output and resonator outputs fed into my Behringer mixer while the VCF output was fed into my Ibanez UE 305 with Analog Chorus,Delay and Compressor all engaged and output back into my cruddy mixer.
I was obviously tweaking the sound in spots... Most notably the VCF Cutoff and sometimes S/H rate etc. Towards the end, or somewhere in the middle I brought down the release for a more plucky sound while the lower half of the Polymoog had a bit more sustain... Unfortunately I recorded this to digital (Tascam DP01FX) It sounded much nicer through my Tascam 688 Cassette 8-track but then I couldn't transfer it to this media from there. Also, my Polymoog is only offering out Square waves at this time or else it would have sounded even way more complex and OTHERWORLDLY!!!
I have a feeling the Blondie and Gary Numan mostly used just Squarewaves anyway for their string sound... Though ealy 70's Ultravox relied more heavily on the deeper and fat sounding Polymoog sawtooth waveforms..."

Grove PM Resonator Eurorack Module in Yellow

via the Grove Audio Blog

"The Eurorack version is shown here. It is 17.5HP wide and accommodate 2.5mm pitch mounting holes." MOTM format is now available as well.

via the PM Resonator page & previously posted here: "The PM Resonator is a recreation of the formant filter section of a Polymoog™ synthesizer in a standard 5U double-width modular panel. Each of the three filter channels has a control for frequency, signal gain, and emphasis or resonance.

A rotary switch selects the type of filter mode for each of the three channels. The modes are low pass, bandpass, band notch, and high pass."

A nod to Metasonix yellow?

2010 Build Pictures on

I haven't put up a post on the 2010 Build Pictures thread on in a while. Check out the thread for more. Pictured here is davebr JH based system. Be sure to check out his site linked below.

"I've completed a number of Jurgen Haible, Thomas Henry, and other modules in 2010.

Top Row (left to right)
Haible Polymoog Resonator, Haible Scanner/Chorus Vibrato, Haible Frequency Shifter, and Haible Varislope Filter/Phaser

The holes in the center of the knobs on the Scanner/Chorus Vibrato are for the LED indicators. I used clear shaft potentiometers with the LEDs behind the potentiometers. I needed clear center knobs so I drilled holes and glued in an eyelet.

Bottom Row (left to right)
