At the Machina Bristronica 2023 event, we caught up with Konstantin from Tiptop Audio to delve deeper into the Tiptop Audio Art System. This innovative system aims to tackle the tuning challenges in Eurorack setups by introducing a new approach to pitch control. Konstantin highlighted the fundamental idea behind Art, which is to focus on the relationships between frequencies rather than individual frequencies themselves. By converting MIDI information into Art signals, Art-enabled oscillators can precisely interpret pitch information, making tuning issues a thing of the past. Konstantin emphasized the flexibility of the system, mentioning the availability of Art sequencers and CV to Art converters in the works, ensuring compatibility with various setups and workflows. Additionally, he noted that Tiptop Audio intends to make certain aspects of Art open source, promoting widespread adoption while maintaining standardized practices.
For those intrigued by the Tiptop Audio Art System, it's worth noting that the monophonic components are set to be available in October 2023, with polyphonic modules on the horizon. As this innovative system gains traction, it promises to simplify live performances and collaborations, making it a valuable addition to the ever-evolving world of modular synthesis.
