TipTop Shimmer

The TipTop Audio Z-DSP Shimmer is an expansion card for the Z-DSP modular effects processor.


This expansion card includes 8 algorithms designed to provide deep, rich reverbs with multiple voices and pitch shifting effects. 


This card further expands the sonic versatility of the Z-DSP and provides textures and sounds that are otherwise unachievable in the modular format.


There's 6 dedicated reverb algorithms onboard;



  • 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 to the reverb effects, there's also two special effects;



  • 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.
