Modular Wild Presents TipTop Audio ZDSP - VC Digital Signal Processor

A new series by Raul Pena starts today.
This time it's all about the versatile Tiptop Audio ZDSP Voltage Controlled Digital Signal Processor, an open-source, cartridge-based digital sound-processing and generating platform for Eurorack

Like the processor in your desktop computer, the Z-DSP runs programs in memory.
It’s these programs that create the delays, filters, oscillators and more that the Z-DSP can produce. 
The possibilities are virtually endless, limited only by the imagination of those who write the applications for it. Tiptop Audio, together with some of the best known programmers in the music industry, are working to bring programs to the Z-DSP platform.
The Z-DSP uses an open-source coding environment, and using a programmer (available from Tiptop/Spin
Semiconductor) anyone can create, share or sell their own applications for the Z-DSP.
TipTopAudio hopes that this unique feature will motivate more designers and users to dive in to the amazing world of digital signal processing and enrich the available library of applications for the Z-DSP platform.

Video 5: Modular Wild presents SOUNDS TipTop Audio ZDSP with Halls of Valhalla By Valhalla DSP
" A walkthrough of the presets available on Valhalla DSP's Halls of Valhalla ZDSP card.Sound and Video by Raul Pena."

Video 6: Modular Wild Presents SOUNDS- TipTop Audio Dual ZDSP Experiment #1- Feedback and Clock Modulation

" An extended audio Experiment with Dual Tiptop Audio ZDSP's and Dragonfly Delays card.A simple pulse waveform is fed into ZDSP# 1 on the left side of the screen.
These outputs may be heard in the center stereo field throughout the video. Feedback out from ZDSP #1 is fed out to Audio in 1 and Feedback in 2 of ZDSP #2.
A Sine wave is fed into audio input 2 of ZDSP#2 for effect. This creates an interesting and semi-evolving feedback loop.ZDSP #2 is heard in the far left and far right stereo field. Also a short example with clock modulation. Sound and Audio by Raul Pena"

Video 7: Modular Wild presents SOUNDS TipTop Audio ZDSP with Broken Silicon Error Codes #1
"A short demonstration of the Tiptop Audio ZDSP with the Broken Silicon Error Codes #1 card. Examples using all the presets presented. Sound and Video by Raul Pena."
