Quick question - is the mk3 still being supported? Wondering if some of the extra modes will be ported to the mk3.

I don't anticipate any further development work on the mk3.

Dangit, I was really hoping to see that Sidechain Compressor brought over to the MK3.

Thanks Os for all the updates!

Love all the changes you have been making and new algorithms. Love the simplified playlist file and the folders for samples in the audio algorithms. Another big favourite is Quantiser 2. Looking forward to trying all the new goodies you have added this time round. Your a star! Cheers.

Hi,
I’ve just bought a MK4 with v4.7 onboard. Can I update to v4.9 or do I have to do it via v4.8?
Regards,
MtD.

RE: The Crossfade/Pan algo....can't seem to change any of the parameters. Z appears to control the LFO speed as I can turn it to 99 and back to 0, but pushing Z doesn't allow me to move through the other parameters.

:hmm:

Just me?

Time to get more mk4s then, I guess!

@MAXTHEDOG You can go direct to any version.

@REVIVER As noted in the manual, that algorithm has the knob recorder, so pushing Z is reserved for that function.

Shame on me...I've never even used the knob recorder function.

:doh:

Thank you!

*edit
Never mind, I just need to RTFM and use my Distings more frequently.

I can't get the bassdrum to go through in sidechain (E5), the left and right is audible and z reacts on input :despair:

Feb 14th 2019 - v4.10:

* 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.

Okay, firmware update issue going from 4.5 to 4.10. Boots up and goes directly to "success". It's formatted to fat32 with the image.hex file as the only file on it in the root folder. It's a Sandisk Extreme 32gb. I'm not sure what to try next.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure it's also using the Master Boot Record scheme:

That worked. I had to use "diskpart" to change to mbr from command line because Windows likes to hide things to make it "easy".

Respect for this module fellas :yay:

I'd like to see the ability to turn the screen upside down so I could insert the module upside down and still read it as normal.

March 19th 2019 - v4.10.1:

* Fixed a problem with unwanted noise in the VCO with linear FM algorithm's output.
* Changed the behaviour of the Audio Playback with Reverse algorithm when crossing between forward and reversed playback (and vice versa) to not fade to zero, which makes it more useful when used as an LFO.
* Fixed a crash in the Wavetable VCO algorithm at very high frequencies.
* Fixed a problem with the Clockable SD Delay algorithms where a very short delay time would actually produce a very long delay.

I'm very impressed by the clockable SD delay. Many thanks for the thoughtful update.

April 3rd 2019 - v4.10.2:

* Fixed a problem with the Dual Audio Playback algorithm where samples would fail to switch as expected when changing Z.
* Fixed a problem which could lead to excessive noise in the Voltage Controlled Delay Line algorithm.
* Fixed a problem with the Clockable Ping Pong (Z input pan) algorithm where changing Z could introduce unexpected noise.

June 6th 2019 - v4.11:

* Added the Clockable SD Ping Pong algorithm.
* Added the Clockable Wavetable Envelope algorithm.
* The Wavetable VCO algorithm now has an option for output B to be a phase shifted version of output A.
* All algorithms that use wavetables now look in a specific folder for them, keeping them separate from normal audio files. The 'playlist-wavetable.txt' file is now optional.
* The Reverb algorithms now have a 'freeze' control, and a gain control for the reverb signal. The Size and Feedback parameters of these algorithms now use a range of 1-32.
* The VCO with waveshaping algorithm now has parameters for transpose and fine tune, and the option to use Z as an 'oscillator sync' input.
* The Voltage Controlled Delay Line algorithm now has an attenuator for the Y input and an option to insert a saturation stage into the delay feedback loop.
* The MIDI/CV algorithm now supports CC control of the outputs with a 0-10V range.
* Added support for fingered portamento to the MIDI/CV algorithm.
* Improved the quality of the Vocoder algorithm. Also added attenuator parameters for the Vocoder algorithm's outputs.
* Added a parameter to the MIDI File Playback (Clocked) algorithm to select the MIDI file directly, not using the Z knob/CV.
* Added the option of gate inverters to the Linear/Exponential Converter.
* Added support for sending MIDI clock into the disting over the Select Bus.
* All audio playback algorithms are now consistent about non-looping WAV files not playing until they're triggered.
* Added support for MIDI pitch bend to the Audio Playback with V/Oct and Multisample Audio Playback algorithms.
* The Clocked Audio Playback algorithm now has an option to use Z to control sample start position.
* Added the 'startQuantize' audio playlist option.
* Saving a preset now also saves which parameter is currently assigned to the S knob.
* Fixed a problem where the SD Delay algorithms would not work correctly if they were the first algorithm used at power up.
* Fixed a problem where using the knob recorder on the Dual Waveshaper algorithm would corrupt the output.
* Fixed a problem where non-looped WAV files might play with a click at the end of the sample.
