Moon M530 Delay - IC Chip

Post by Sugarfree » Sun Oct 18, 2020 3:41 pm

Does anybody know what kind of IC does Moon M530 use for digital processing?
The 3–3000 ms range is really impressive, far exceeding the popular Princeton PT2399, so I assume it's DSP-based.

Could someone please look it up on the pcb?

I am guessing it is a SHARC. I'll pull mine out and let you know if I get around to it tonight.

Buried in the comments of JLR’s epic length YouTube video on this delay module, he says it has an ARM microcontroller. The module has a striking resemblance to Erica Synths eurorack digital delay in both appearances and function. The Erica module is definitely DSP.

Erica Synths claims a "custom DSP engine", but I see what you mean regarding a similar look and feature set.
