Expert Sleepers Disting MK1/MK2 (Grayscale panel)

16-in-1 multifunction module (alternate panel)

Alternate panel for Expert Sleepers Disting MK1/MK2:

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:

1A: Precision Adder with integer voltage offsets
1B: Four Quadrant Multiplier with integer multiply/divide
1C: Full-wave Rectifier
1D: Minimum/maximum

2A: Linear/Exponential Converter
2B: Quantizer with selectable scales
2C: Comparator with adjustable hysteresis
2D: Dual Waveshaper wavefolder and triangle-to-sine shaper

3A: Sample and Hold with noise source and adjustable slew rate
3B: Slew Rate Limiter with linear and exponential slew
3C: Pitch and Envelope Tracker
3D: Clockable Delay/Echo

4A: LFO with through zero frequency control and waveshaping
4B: Clockable LFO with multiply/divide and waveshaping
4C: VCO with linear FM sine and saw outputs
4D: VCO with waveshaping saw/triangle and pulse outputs

The Disting's specifications are as follows:

  • 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

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.

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: http://www.microchip.com/pagehandler/en-us/family/mplabx/
