The Disting is a 16-in-1 multifunction module, offering a variety of CV and audio processes, including a selection of oscillators (LFOs/VCOs). All algorithms have two high-precision inputs and outputs, and a third control input, exposed on a front panel knob and a CV input.
The included algorithms are:
|Group 1||Group 2||Group 3||Group 4|
with integer voltage offsets
|Linear/Exponential Converter||Sample and Hold
with noise source and
adjustable slew rate
with through zero frequency control
|2||Four Quadrant Multiplier
with integer multiply/divide
with selectable scales
|Slew Rate Limiter
with linear and
with adjustable hysteresis
|Pitch and Envelope Tracker||VCO with linear FM
sine and saw outputs
|Clockable Delay/Echo||VCO with waveshaping
and pulse outputs
The Disting’s specifications are as follows:
- Panel width: 4HP
- Module depth: 53mm
- X & Y inputs, A & B outputs
- Sample rate: 78.125kHz
- ADC: 24 bit, THD+N -93dB, Dynamic range 99dB, SNR 99dB
- DAC: 24 bit, THD+N -94dB, Dynamic range 105dB, SNR 104dB
- Z input sample rate: 10kHz approx
- CPU: Microchip PIC32MX at up to 40MHz
- Current draw: 111mA on the +12V rail, 37mA on the -12V rail (148mA total)
The front panel is drilled for both Doepfer and Analogue Systems mounting holes (using a ‘slot’ rather than a single round hole). The power connector is a Doepfer standard 10 way IDC, with -12V furthest from the top of the board.
For more detail, please see the user manual.
The Disting is based around a PIC microcontroller, with a programming/debug header available on the board. Using Microchip’sfree development tools a user can easily hack the Disting to perform their own functions.
It is our intention to provide an open source code framework into which developers can slot their own algorithms.
