SSSR Labs Vertigo DSP For The Tiptop Audio Z-DSP

In his latest video, Ben ‘DivKid’ Wilson takes a look at the new SSSR Labs Vertigo DSP card, a third-party effect card for Tiptop Audio’s Z-DSP platform.

Here’w what he has to say about it:

This is a card based FX product that is made for use within the Z-DSP from TipTop Audio. The aim of the product is to create rich stereo textures and images and across it’s 8 algorithms (different FX) it does a great job of doing so.

We have a auto-sidechaining freezable hall reverb, 2 characterful multi-tap BBD delay emulations, 6-Tap Diffused delays that combine vibrato reverb and delay, an experiment disorientating delay, rotary speakers, dual phasers and an Impulse response based stereo widener modelling a room response with other stereo creation/enhancement as well.

  1. I wonder if this card also might work with Xaoc Devices Timiszoara which I think is based on the same dsp cups as the z-dsp. If not, they should make a card for that as well
