We are first releasing the “DnB” variant - which is limited to DnB and Minimax models - to deliver a focused and clearly positioned module at a specifically nice price. We plan to offer the full range of models for Eurorack at a later point, at which time you can upgrade your unit via a firmware update.
No. DinoPark does not use “native” processing on Windows/iOS and Intel basis. It achieves its outstanding sound, its super low latency, its small form factor and its low price point by employing a highly powerful, specialized signal processor - the Analog Devices SHARC DSP and avoiding the overhead of an operating system. Therefore, VSTi can not run on a DSP and vice versa.
No, not required. The DinoPark CV inputs are used to set and modulate parameters which would usually be set via knobs . Here, changes at audio rates do not make sense. To achieve all its control routing options (CV, DinoDials, MIDI, editor GUI and GLUE), CVs in DinoPark are implemented event driven with moderate update rates which do not reach far into the audio range.
Not today. Although we ourselves use the SCOPE SDK to develop for DinoPark, the extreme complexity of the toolchain does not allow us to support 3rd Party development for DinoPark at this point in time.
Once DinoPark Eurorack is released, find support information here!
DinoPark Eurorack loads and performs one model at a time - Choose from any of the seven models. Each model comes with 50 factory presets and 50 user presets which can be edited and saved via the editor GUIs on your computer.
There are four ways you can trigger the DinoPark Eurorack to play:
Yes, you can use all inputs at the same time – for example, play a polyphonic Minimax via MIDI while simultaneously controlling two more voices via CV voice inputs.
DinoPark features four CV input channels that you assign to various parameters of the currently loaded synthesizer model.
Two encoders per CV input channel let you adjust offset and attenuation of the incoming CV.
When there is no CV connected to a port, the corresponding “Offset” encoder lets you set the level of the selected parameter manually!
The same encoders double for saving snapshot functionality. How quickly can you re-patch and tweak your entire Eurorack? DinoPark does it in a fraction of a second. Whatever model, preset and CV connection you have made – you can save it for later and DinoPark will return to that exact state at the push of a button!
DinoDials are an optional expansion for DinoPark Eurorack and come in two sizes - with either 8 or 12 touch-sensitive and freely assignable encoders.
The display of the DinoPark will show the name of the parameter already when you slightly touch a knob - that makes “remebering” parameters real easy.
Your favourite parameters in direct reach - great for your performance!
