It’s time to make some space in your Eurorack case, because the Buchla & Tiptop Audio 296t Spectral Processor is now available for order.


Unveiled at Superbooth earlier this year along with Tiptop Audio’s ART Modules, 296t Spectral Processor is a massive 52 HP 16-channel filter bank, with versatile routing and control options.

The basic premise of the 296t is that you can take a basic pure tone synth signal – or any sound for that matter – and turn it into a multilayered and textured soundscape where each of the 16 frequency bands can be animated in its own way.

Because of the way it has been designed, there is a multitude of ways to use the 296t in your Eurorack system. For instance, the comb filter outputs, attenuator outputs, programmed outputs, and signal inputs have summed odd and even outputs or inputs.

What’s more, you can change the decay time of the envelope follower outputs with three settings: short, combo, and long. You also have loads of control over the programmed frequency bands, with CV inputs for the frequency and width.


When you combine the soon-to-be-released 207t Mixer/Preamp module with the 296t, you get an incredible analogue vocoder, capable of producing classic retro electronic sounds.

    I really hoped for the price to be lower on this unit, since they started out with a more promising affordable Buchla range. I know these spectral modules are serious circuits, but new Sputnik SP is 740 eur and is 12hp smaller and even has LED indicators on each band. Second hand Fumana goes for around 750 eur which is twice more complex.

    I was looking forward to see the price in 500-600 eur range, too bad :/
