Fun and Inspiring Eurorack-ready Sequencer

The Tiptop Audio Trigger Riot Eurorack sequencer module will completely change the way you think about pattern sequencing. Unlike traditional step sequencers, which allow you to trigger each instrument across 16 note divisions, the Trigger Riot provides you with a matrix of clock dividers, which interact in fun and often chaotic ways that let you stumble onto rhythms you never would have dreamed up. The result is a creative tool the synth guys at Sweetwater absolutely adore. Between its cascading clock-division controls, probability generators, pulse-width control, and more, having a Tiptop Audio Trigger Riot in your Eurorack rig is more like working with a collaborator than merely programming in beats.

Tiptop Audio Trigger Riot Eurorack Sequencer Module at a Glance:
  • Two sequencing modes inspire creativity
  • Play with probability, timing, and more
  • Comprehensive I/O for beefy rhythm rigs
Two sequencing modes inspire creativity

The way the Trigger Riot sequencer works is pure genius. There's a master tempo, and each of the 16 encoders controls a clock-divided gate pulse, with a range from 1-256, indicating the frequency with which the gate is triggered (1 being every pulse of the clock, and 256 being every 256 pulses). There are four encoders in each row and each column in the encoder grid. In Matrix mode, each encoder is added to the rest of the encoders both horizontally and vertically, whereas Independent mode treats each column and each row as individual channels, allowing you to access a total of 32 time division settings divided across eight outputs. Either way, it's easy to come up with intensely complex rhythms simply by tweaking a few knobs and listening to the cumulative effect.

Play with probability, timing, and more

Clock division is only the beginning of what the Trigger Riot can do. In fact, Tiptop Audio loaded this sequencer with several other advanced settings. Each step can have its own independent speed, and Clock Shift and Time Shift settings make it easy to add swing to your groove. By far the coolest unique feature to the Trigger Riot is its Probability function, which lets you add a random element to your rhythm by specifying how likely each clock division is to be triggered, adding an organic element to your patterns. As you can imagine, it's easy to create phenomenally complex rhythms this way. Lucky for you, there are 16 memory locations, so you can easily store your creations and come back to them later.

Comprehensive I/O for beefy rhythm rigs

In addition to master Reset and Clock I/O, which make it easy to integrate your Trigger Riot into a complex synth setup, the Trigger Riot includes enough individual gate outputs to power a traditional electronic percussion rig and then some. There's even DIN sync to support legacy Roland gear. A total of eight individual gates let you hook up a kick, clap, snare, hats, and more, with gates left over to control the step advance on a traditional sequencer, making the Trigger Riot an ideal master clock.

Tiptop Audio Trigger Riot Eurorack Sequencer Module Features:
  • Powerful 28hp Eurorack sequencer module based on clock divisions
  • 4 x 4 encoder grid lets you create complex sequences by stacking clock divisions
  • Matrix mode and Independent mode provide 2 approaches to sequencing
  • Add probability to each clock division to create an organic, random effect
  • Get creative with Speed, Clock Shift, Time Shift, and Pulse Width settings for each step
  • Each of the 8 outputs includes a dedicated mute switch for live performance
  • External sync (including DIN sync) provides integration into complex synth rigs
Sequence in a whole new way with the Tiptop Audio Trigger Riot!

Let start a riot!

This thing is just fun on a bun right out of the box! There's a lot this thing can do, but in the 24 hours I've had it, I just been making some skull crushing beats like crazy! Infact, I'm using in my set in Seattle tonight. If you're looking for a fun and easy way to improve beats live, this is the way togo! The nice thing is you get 4 banks, and 4 programs per bank to store your patterns. Like I said, I've only had it a day, and feel like I barely scratched the surface.
