Chords Melodies Harmony And Polyphony In Eurorack
Welcome to the ART technology educational page
Musical Harmony Goes Modular
ART takes the power of musical harmony and fully enables its potential in a hardware modular synthesizer.
Patch Polyphonic Synthesizers
Our new Polytip cable and connectors makes polyphonic patching effortless.
ART Bring Great Solutions
Solve old technical problems and creative flow stoppers to open up next level multi voice composition and sound design in Eurorack.
Is a powerhouse ART controller that takes MIDI in via the USB or DIN connector and outputs 8 ART channels with 8 velocity CV plus 8 drum triggers. Together with the ART oscillators the OCTOPUS provide unprecedented simplicity connecting the modular to your computer sequencers, hardware midi sequencers and keyboards...
Is Tiptop Audio’s new type of modular synthesizer patch cable that can pass multiple audio channels using minimal panel space. This innovative design finally adds to modular the capability to patch more than one signal at a time and unleash the full potential of polyphonic system using ART...
Is an eight voice 24db/octave low pass filter based on the classic 2044 filter. All eight filters are fully analog with gain compensation of resonance and the lovely lush sound of classic synths. A global frequency modulation CV using a 3.5mm jack can be used to modulate all eight incoming CVs of the Polytip jack...
Is an eight voice fully analog envelope generator. Its typical use is to patch polyphonic synthesizers with the use of only a few single Polytip cables. Each of the eight envelopes feature a Gate in, Envelope OUT, Velocity CV in and Attack CV in control as well as an output led indicator...
Is a eight voice polyphonic audio VCA plus a eight voice mixer with master level control and two ODD/EVEN channels for a stereo output and clipping indicator. All eight VCA ins and outs are simultaneously available through Polytip jacks and 3.5mm jacks so the module can be used in a variety of ways both polyphonic or multi-voice monophonic...

Demo patches, tips for sound design
Once you got your ART modules please watch the Video tutorials to get started.
Voice = can refer for example to a single filter in a poly filter module or a complete voice like VCO + VCF + EG + VCA patch.
Poly synth patch = patch with only Polytips. Patching with Polytips is like a higher level patching, you don’t patch one monophonic signal like you usually do in Eurorack, you patch blocks of voices.
Discrete polyphony patch = a polyphonic patch made from single modules, like multiple ATXs that goes into multiple filters and multiple vcas. Obviously it is very interesting to try and make each voice different from the other.
Multi-Voice patch = a patch of multiple mono voices.
Paraphonic patch = a polyphonic tone generation mix, like the MIX out on Vortex6 or multiple mono voices (ATX1) mixed together goes into a monophonic processing (VCF, VCA, EG, etc) path.
Polyphonic module = module with poly tips jacks like OCTOPASS
Polyphonic module with discrete I/Os = like Vortex6 and HEAGAIN, having both Polytips and 3.5mm jacks in parallel.
Polyphonic jack = the Polytip jacks, these carry multiple audio signal in one cable
3.5mm jacks = the standard jacks used in Eurorack
