Software Description

Vertigo from discoDSP is an additive synthesizer that works for Mac OSX. It can handle VST, 32 and 64-bit Audio Units and RTAS.

It can re-synthesize and import PNG and WAV files into double morphable layers, each having up to 256 oscillators. It also includes 8 effects, FFTview and dual filters.

New in R3.5

  • Linux VST 32 and 64-bit support.
  • Compiled using Xcode 5.
  • Bugfix memory leaks.
  • Removed memory allocations from audio thread.
  • Improved GUI painting by removing excessive image blitting.
  • Speedup oscillator engine with SSE2.
  • Zero Delay Feedback filters.
  • Improve reverb.
  • New chorus.
  • Multiple folder support at Documents > discoDSP > Vertigo > Banks location.
  • Bank browser clicking Program LED display.
  • Factory presets revised and reworked.

New in R3.2

  • Bugfix for Modulation Wheel to Morph settings.
