Expert Sleepers – Disting Mk3

Expert Sleepers – Disting Mk3

$264.00

 

The digital pocket knife for the modular has been updated with these new features

 

  • Smaller – now 42mm deep (from 53mm)
  • Over 50% less power consumption – now 70mA combined draw (from 148mA)
  • User-updatable code – via Micro SD card
  • More algorithms – no longer limited to 16
  • More functionality – new encoder and push buttons give more control options

 

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.

Product Description

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
1 Precision Adder
with integer voltage offsets
Linear/Exponential Converter Sample and Hold
with noise source and
adjustable slew rate
LFO
with through zero frequency control
and waveshaping
2 Four Quadrant Multiplier
with integer multiply/divide
Quantizer
with selectable scales
Slew Rate Limiter
with linear and
exponential slew
Clockable LFO
with multiply/divide
and waveshaping
3 Full-wave Rectifier Comparator
with adjustable hysteresis
Pitch and Envelope Tracker VCO with linear FM
sine and saw outputs
4 Minimum/maximum Dual Waveshaper
wavefolder and
triangle-to-sine shaper
Clockable Delay/Echo VCO with waveshaping
saw/triangle
and pulse outputs

 

Specifications

The disting mk3’s specifications are as follows:

  • Panel width: 4HP
  • Module depth: 42mm
  • X & Y inputs, A & B outputs
    • Sample rate: 75kHz
    • 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: 75kHz
  • CPU: Microchip PIC32MX at up to 50MHz
  • Current draw: 50mA on the +12V rail, 20mA on the -12V rail (70mA 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.

Hackable

The disting is based around a PIC microcontroller, with a programming/debug header available on the board. Using Microchip’s free development tools a user can easily hack the disting to perform their own functions.

We have provided an open source code framework into which developers can slot their own algorithms. This can be foundhere. There is a thread about disting firmware hacking on the forum here.

The framework has not yet been updated for the disting mk3.

Below is a (rather long) video introducing the disting in some detail, filmed at a meeting of the London Music Hackspace. You may like to jump in at these times:

  • 06:00 – description of the hardware
  • 40:45 – description of the open source software framework
  • 1:16:45 – compilation of some custom code and seeing how it sounds.
