Disting Mk4: Problems with I8 Dual Audio playback with z speed

Post by donpuzo » Fri Mar 26, 2021 12:23 pm

I bought last week a Disting MK4 and it's wonderful. I am however having problems with some playback algorithms, maybe I'm missing something.

I have a sd card with a folder. The folder has 4 .wav files (44.1KHz 16 bits). I don't have any playlist on the root or the folder, I believe that they are not necessary (but maybe I am wrong and this is the problem!)



In the video, I can do I4 algorithm Audio playback with z speed without problems. However when I go to the I8 Dual Audio playback with z speed and I try to select the folder, the Disting crashes. I also have been having problems with I7.

Any ideas?

Odd. Could you post the card contents here (attached as a zip)?

Nothing obviously wrong there. Which firmware are you on?

In your video, when you switch to I-8 it pops up a folder name which is not one in your zip. Did you send the right files?

I've been trying two sd cards (in case it was the SD) I thought I send the card contents of the video, but it happens the same with the two. Just in case, I send you the other card contents, but the problem is the same.

"1r folder Audacity" won't work because there's only a single sample in it.

Can I see a video with that fixed? or with the other card?

I attach the contents of the card now with two folders and more than on wav in each folder and a video of how it operates. It collapsed a little bit later and in a different way.



One question: is it expected that the disting plays the wav files once I enter the algorithm I-8 before I send any trigger?

Thank you very much for your attention

Yes. You probably want to create the playlist as suggested in the user manual section for I-7.

You may also want to convert your samples to mono, unless you plan on using stereo outs from the disting.

Thank you! With the playlist the module doesn't colapse : ) Maybe it was a memory problem?

I'm finding that with high Z values I listen a "double" attack of the sample. Is that ok?



Best wishes!

I wouldn't expect that. Is it actually playing it twice from the start, or is there a stutter in the audio?

It's hard to tell the difference, maybe it's a stutter in the audio and that sounds as a double attack. I attach the files of the SD. Does it also happen to you? Is it possible that I have a faulty unit? Maybe the other strange behaviour and this problem with high Z could be due to a lack of processing capacity? I have to send today other modules to the shop where I bought it. If it's a problem with the unit I would buy another (I cannot live without a disting now) but I would like to be sure before : )

Yes, it happens for me too. If you convert the samples to mono, it doesn't happen.

Please try v4.19.1, which should be able to cope with stereo again.
