The Z2040 is a discrete clone of the Prophet 5`s low pass filter with come additonal features like voltage controlled gain and resonance. The gain parameter allows for overdriving the filter.
Voltage controlled, 24dB/octave steep, 4-pole lowpass filter based on the original US patent of the SSM2040 filter chip from Sequential Circuits' Prophet 5 Rev2.
FM is the cutoff modulation parameter with a voltage controllable modulation depth (VC-FM)
The gain is adjustable and until the 1h position (marked with "0dB") the filter is pretty smooth but above that the sound gets more and more overdriven. A VCA pre-filter makes the gain voltage controllable; alternatively you can route the VCA post-filter with a jumper.

Originally based in California and now operating from Thailand, Tiptop has been around for over a decade, providing some of the first effects in eurorack (Z5000), a whole line of 808 and 909 drum modules, clever sequencers and affordable cases. Their Z-DSP is probably one of the best effect modules available, with countless exchangeable cards.
