Only saw this last night, great to see a new developer writing for the ZDSP.

Looking forward to having a play.

Glad you managed to order one.

I have had mine for several weeks now and it a great card. I like that it’s modern but still has a nice old vibe to it.

Try plenty of different input material

Just tried to source this card in the UK having spotted DivKid's video reviews but no luck. In the end I placed an order directly on the SSSR Labs Russian site via PayPal. It'll be interesting to see whether the card actually turns up and how long it takes to ship it to the UK.

Mine took about six weeks to arrive to UK, I had emailed Dmitry after a month and he said deliveries across Europe were taking a long time. He replies quickly to emails and I had no problems.

Likewise, no issues ordering direct. Postage is slow, probably more so these days.

You should be getting an opening screen saying "VERTIGO DSP Card by SSSR Labs." on screen for a few seconds as per my screen grab attachment and then into the preset menu.

I have not had any problems loading any of my Z-DSP cards so far.

It occurred to me you might have a blank card, so I put in a blank card and Hey Presto the white blocks.

Hi to all.
The issue is confirmed: some part of recently made cartridges had the description chips non programmed. All cartridges are tested and reprogrammed and all responsible were put in the corner, so all ordered cards shipped starting from yesterday are OK.

We are apologise for fulfillment delays and inconvenience this issue has caused.
2 warranty events addressed so far.

If you got your card with the same issue please request a replacement via email sssrlabs@sssrlabs.com / Whatsapp (the phone no. is on the website) / facebook group PM. We always ship replacements worldwide free of any charges, also for cartridges no need for return.

Damn the zdsp is alluring. I want two but it's so huge. Any of you have just one zdsp and are totally satisfied, or do you always want two chips? Or do you just have other fx modules that fill the void?

Kent, I full heartedly believe you. You aren't kidding are you? tell me the truth. Anyways I built this in MG based on your professional review.
You think it'll be what I want, seeing as how you know exactly what I want and the exact sound that I enjoy making?

Nice one. You’re a funny and clever Wiggler…

Yes, it is exactly what you want :cookiemonster:

Recently, the new & narrower series (FSU, ModFX, etc.) have come out and one can put three of those where one Z-DSP would go. Something to consider for some folk.

I’ve got one of the 2 Valhalla DSP cards going at all times. The 2nd Z-DSP is for anything else. I might have to get a third.

There actually are ways to use cards originally made for the Z-DSP with modules that will have a smaller footprint... down to 3HP!

viewtopic.php?f=16&t=241919

It looks to me that most customers using the Pico DSP with the backpack version are "permanently" converting it to a Pico Halls of Valhalla. Of course you don't have all of the controls the Z-DSP offers, and will need additional modules for the dry/wet control.

The Black Hole DSP MKII might be a better alternative for who wants to have something closer to the Z-DSP, even though it will still lack the feedback controls.

BTW, it's been a while since I wanted to get my hands on a Vertigo card, and there's finally one coming my way! :hyper:
