v4.11
Parameters on K2 & K4 are not selectable?
Just the default 0 folder parameter available

K1 is ok parameter wise so not sure if there is a problem with the update or something my end.

Those algorithms use Z for tap tempo so parameter selection is only available via S. Refer to the manual.

Got it! Hold in the S knob turn slowly - knew it was me all along - Great update.

thanks OS

Awesome — thank you so much!

Cheers,

The Clocked Audio Playback algorithm now has an option to use Z to control sample start position.
Fixed a problem where non-looped WAV files might play with a click at the end of the sample.

Thanks!

* Added the Clockable Wavetable Envelope algorithm.


My suggestion made it! Thanks very much Os. :)

Os, this update is pretty awesome, even without a step sequencer. Well done, geez!

10th July 2019 - v4.12:

* Added the Half-wave Rectifier algorithm.
* Added the Multisample 2 Audio Playback algorithm.
* Added support for loop markers in WAV files.
* In all Audio Playback algorithms, added a small delay between choosing the folder and the disting loading it, to make it easier to scroll through many folders.
* In the Audio Playback with Crossfade algorithm, added display of the file chosen to fade in at the next crossfade.
* Fixed a problem when using 'Envelope time' in the dual audio playback algorithms and both voices were playing the same sample.
* Greatly increased performance when using 'Envelope time' in dual audio playback algorithms.
* In the Dual Euclidean Patterns algorithm, added independent Rotation control of the two patterns, and added a Repeat parameter, allowing the repeat count to be different from the number of steps in the pattern.

Oh! Just realized that I'm not feeling well.

I should probably leave work early because it might be infectious.... Yep I heard about it on TV this morning.... Wiggler's Syndrome they called it....

Thanks Os :hail:

11th July 2019 - v4.12.1:

* Fixed an issue with the formatting of WAV files written by the Audio Recorder algorithms.
* Fixed an issue where a disting running firmware 4.12 would hang when attempting to play WAV files recorded by the disting itself.

Since 4.11 pressing the Z button on a reverb Algorithm freezes the reverb.
So how can I cycle between Parameters without pressing the Z?

Push and turn S, as it says in the manual.

TRYING TO UPDATE TO 4.12, BUT IT STILL READS 4.11

Post by eblomquist » Thu Aug 15, 2019 7:28 pm

Strange behavior. Twice I have downloaded the 4.12 firmware and moved it to the SD card, and twice when Disting 4 boots, it reads 4.11.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

The update clearly hasn't worked. Check the card format and the file name on the card. The update should look like it does in the video on the firmware download page.

5th September 2019 - v4.13:

* Added the Stereo Filter algorithm.
* Added the Stereo Tape Delay algorithm.
* Overhauled the Stereo Chorus and Mono Chorus algorithms, adding parameters for delay time, chorus stages, and feedback saturation.
* Added the Sum Mode parameter to the Precision Adder (fractional offsets) algorithm.
* Added a further mode to the Half-wave Rectifier algorithm offering dual independent rectifiers.
* Added parameters to the Sample and Hold and Dual Sample and Hold algorithms to add noise into the inputs.
* Added the '-retriggerOnSampleChange' playlist option for MIDI playback.
* Fixed a problem where the Audio Playback with Scrub algorithm would stop playback if the playback position went off the end of the sample.
* Fixed a problem where specifying an empty folder in an audio playlist and then selecting that folder would then cause the folder parameter to revert to zero.

Loving the improved chorus.

Thanks Os.

Now I just need some kindly nerd to update the cheatsheet.

29th October 2019 - v4.14:

* Added the Pulsar VCO algorithm.
* Added the Switch algorithm.
* Added slew parameters to the Dual Sample and Hold algorithm.
* The MIDI Clock algorithm can now output clocks up to 24ppqn (1/96th note).
* The VCO with linear FM, VCO with waveshaping, and Wavetable VCO algorithms now respond to incoming MIDI note messages.
* The Quantizer 2 algorithm can now take its quantisation pattern from incoming MIDI note messages.
* Added a setting for the maximum delay time of the SD Delay algorithms.
* Fixed some problems where incoming MIDI would stop working when saving a preset or switching to certain algorithms.
* Fixed a problem where audio files with loop markers would not loop properly if the loop was not near the end of the file.
* Fixed a problem with the knob recorder in the Stereo Filter algorithm.

Thanks so much for the Switch algo and the slew on the dual S&H. Appreciated.
