disting mk4 firmware v4.10 Adds Very Long Delays & More

Expert Sleepers has released Version 4.10 of the disting mk4 firmware.

The update contains a number of new algorithms, including new SD card-based delays offering extremely long delay times.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Added the Clockable SD Delay, Stereo Clockable SD Delay, and Stereo Clockable SD Delay (Z clock) algorithms.
  • Added the Clockable Wavetable LFO algorithm.
  • Added the Wavetable Waveshaper algorithm.
  • Added the DJ Filter algorithm.
  • Added the Dual Vowel Filter algorithm.
  • Added the Mixer algorithm.
  • Added individual output attenuverters and a Y Offset parameter to the Clockable LFO algorithm.
  • Added a Y Offset parameter to the State Variable Filter, LP/HP Filter, LP/HP Filter, BP/HP Filter, and BP/Notch Filter algorithms.
  • The Shift Register Random CVs algorithm now has an Offset parameter, and the Shift Register Random Quantized CVs algorithm now has a Transpose parameter. For both algorithms, the output attenuator is now an attenuverter.
  • Increased the length of the filename displayed by the Audio Playback algorithms.
  • Fixed a problem which would cause some unusually formatted WAV files not to work.
  • Fixed a problem with receiving MIDI from certain devices (notably those by Elektron) which could result in stuck notes or notes being ignored.
  • Fixed unnecessary output glitches which could occur when exiting the menu system or switching parameters.
  • Fixed a problem which could cause the Z push to no longer switch parameters if the module were left untouched for about 7 hours.

Here are demos of the new features:

  1. If (like me) you ask “how long is a very-long delay?”
    The manual says the stereo delay is 48 minutes.
    The mono delay is about 95 minutes.

    Yep. Quite a long delay!

    1. I built a synth for a college project a while ago, which had an analog/hard logic sequencer and microcontroller-based clock (was a bit of a box-ticking exercise on that front); I used a long int variable to set the clock rate, and didn’t constrain it, so I wound up with a clock that could be dialed down to less than one clock pulse per month…
