Z-DSP Cards

Broken Silicon is producing cartridges for the Z-DSP Eurorack module from Tiptop Audio. The Z-DSP is a digital signal processor which can load custom programs from little memory cards like the ones from Broken Silicon. You can find out more about the Z-DSP module on Tiptop’s page here.

“Error Codes 1″ is the first of a series of custom cartridges for the Z-DSP Eurorack module of Tiptop audio made by “Broken Silicon”. The cartridge contains 8 quite diverse programs ranging from audio transformers to signal and CV generators

#1 Combiner – Dual comb filter with positive & negative feedback control

Typical use: Run with percussive audio or drum loops.
Alternative use: Feed with trigger signals, short envelopes or noise burst.

#2 Noisekraft – Digital noise generator with speed and bit depth control

Typical use: Noise source with modulated speed.
Alternative use: Feed output to cutoff modulation of self-resonating filter.

#3 7 Sins – Seven sine wave generators running with linear frequency spread

Typical use: Strange oscillator as base material for further processing.

#4 Bit Eater – Bit crusher and crude sample rate reducer

Typical use: Destroy any audio material.
Alternative use: Use output as modulation source like for cutoff modulation of self-resonating filter.

#5 Clipper – Digital clipping distortion

Typical use: Destroy any audio material.

#6 Wave Shaver – Digital wave shaper

Typical use: Shape periodic waveforms with less harmonics like triangular waves.
Alternative use: Shape complex waveforms or audio material, also shaping LFO signals.

#7 Sync Osc – Digital pulse wave oscillator synchronized from audio input

Typical use: Control with saw from VCO for generating harsh sync effects.
Alternative use: Feed with LFO signals. Modulate pitch.

#8 Burstwerk – Repeating envelope generator

Typical use: Use as control signal for all kind of modulation purposes.
