ValhallaDSP Shimmer Cartridge for Tiptop Audio's Z-DSP Released

First revealed back in January of 2015, and in the video above in June of 2015, the Valhalla Shimmer Cartridge for the Tiptop Z-DSP is now available. Details follow via ValhallaDSP:

"The Z-DSP Shimmer cartridge has 8 original algorithms, designed to combine lush reverberation with multiple voices of pitch shifting, to create ethereal pads, rich chordal textures, dissonant clouds of sound, and a variety of other sounds that are perfect for electronic music. The algorithms are customized to work with the Tiptop Audio Z-DSP Eurorack module.

There are 6 reverb algorithms in the Z-DSP Shimmer cart, arranged in order of complexity:

Fast Shimmer: A modulated reverb that quickly decays away into an endlessly pitch shifting tail. The shift interval can be set between +/- 12 semitones. Perfect for that classic “octave up” shimmer sound.
Slow Shimmer: Similar to Fast Shimmer, but with a much slower attack.
Dual Shimmer: Two pitch shifted voices, embedded within a larger modulated reverb network, shifting the reverb decay in both positive and negative directions. Try slowly sweeping the Shift control in this mode for ridiculously cinematic sounds.
Triple Shimmer: Two pitch shifted voices embedded within the reverb decay network, plus a third voice external to the network. This allows the user to have a reverb with +12 and -12 semitones of feedback, plus a stable +7 semitones voice without feedback.
Quad Shimmer: Four pitch shifted voices feeding into a lush modulated reverb. This allows for a variety of dissonant and consonant chordal textures, with the max Shift setting corresponding to a rich major chord.
ClusterVerb: Four pitch shifted voices embedded within the feedback network of a modulated reverb. The result quickly becomes dissonant or metallic. Perfect for insta-Ligeti, or Penderecki In A Box™.
In addition, the Z-DSP Shimmer cart features 2 special effects algorithms:

Quad Detune: 4 short pitch shifted delays, feeding back on each other. A variety of chorus, detuned, and dissonant effects can be obtained through this mode. Turn up the Feedback for maximum fun.
PitchEcho: A single pitch shifting voice, combined with a tape echo emulation = sound mangling joy. Turn up the feedback for barberpole self oscillation, and sweep the decay time for all sorts of swoopy glitches.
The Z-DSP Shimmer cart retails for $75, and will be available at your favorite Eurorack store in the next few days."

"It is the most desirable revision, with the chassis-mounted power transformer and J-wire keyboard. Early (pre-serial 1500) models had the power transformer mounted to the circuit board, eventually it could come loose and swing around the circuit board damaging components. The later (post-serial 8500) had membrane keyboard contacts that are known to become intermittent and difficult or impossible to repair..."

Published on Feb 8, 2016 Easy Sound Recording Co.

Whole lotta synth rorschach going on in this one. What do you see? For me, the punch cards reminded me of the 1974 RMI KC-1 Keyboard Computer ; the switches as well for that matter.

"When applied to the trigger of a Dual Attack Generator, the exponential nature of a second Dual Attack Generator module (with a long decay rate) modulating the frequency of a Timing Pulse Generator, which is controlling the aforementioned Dual Attack Generator, produces this bouncing ball effect.

Earth Frequency Sound Healing Singing Bowls and Modular Synth

Published on Feb 8, 2016 VoltageCtrlRtv

"This sound healing sonic geometry composition is in the vibration of C sharp, This is the frequency of the Sacral Chakra and it is also the resonant frequency of the earth. The energy of this wheel of light known as the 2nd Chakra is associated with creativity, movement, sexuality, change, pleasure and prosperity to name a few.
If you are feeling blocked in any of the above mentioned areas spending time breathing and being in resonance with this frequency will assist in opening up and restoring balance to get the spinning wheels of light flowing and glowing.

Tools: 17th century Himalayan singing bowls, analog modular synthesizer, micro brute keyboard and machinedrum.
