Technical description and MIDI specification:
1. Modulation Sensitivity - potentiometer allows alignment sensitivity of the sensors and
the circuit responsible for tracking and processing modulation and amplitude from acoustic wave
didgeridoo sound. At the same time it allows to select individual components of the harmonics from natural sound didgeridoo, which are the processing to message MIDI Control Change CC # 74 to control the LPF "Cutoff"
To the "Modulation Sensitivity" can be additionally enable a second circuit trace and processing by enable Mod ON button. This is assign another parameter MIDI CC # 1. See point 6 and 3.
2. Rhythm Sensitivity - potentiometer allows to adjust the sensitivity / threshold for circuit sensor responsible for processing the dynamics / intensity acoustic sound wave didgeridoo. At the same time it allows to set the threshold for the level of intensity from the acoustic wave. Above the threshold is triggered message note - ON. When the intensity of the acoustic wave falls below the threshold, the message is triggered Note - OFF. Setting the potentiometer allow for precise adjustment of the threshold for the acoustic wave according to the rhythm of play. Rhythmic playing technique on the didgeridoo like a beatboxing techniques with the right threshold allow for rhythmic control messages Note-ON / Note-OFF.
3. Modulation - potentiometer is closely linked to the function button "Mod ON" see
point 6. Moreover, if the function Mod ON is disabled, then potentiometer allows to independent setting
modulation in the range of 0-127 for MIDI CC # 1.
4.Rezonance - potentiometer enables precise setting of the level of resonance in the range of 0-127
for MIDI CC # 71 - Rezonance.
5. Pitch - potentiometer allows you to adjust start note (basic tone of sound "drone") in the range of C-3 to C-7 including halftones. This feature works in "real time" allows to changing the pitch during the playing. Also thanks to the pre-set "Pitch" is defined octave range available for the touch-sensitive "ribbon Sensor" (see point 11)
6. Mod ON - Function button which allows to turn on modulation to the basic processing. If the button is enabled (blue LED on the switch lit) the range of modulation is the 0-127 controlled by the circuit tracking and processing modulation and amplitude from acoustic wave didgeridoo. See point 1. At one time are processed independently
and sent two messages MIDI CC # 1 and CC # 74 which allows for more accurate digital mapping wave components from sound didgeridoo. Disabling function is after holding the button for about 6 seconds.
7. Power - the main power switch. Disabled by pressing and holding button 6 seconds.
8. Panic - it is modified the "Panic". Function button which when pressed, send a series of messages CC # 123 only for channel 1. In the event of the need to mute all notes and CC parameters.
9. BTC - light battery charging. When charger is connected, BTC flashes regularly. After
battery charge BTC ceases to illuminate and the circuit automatically shuts off the charging mode.
10. DC - socket for connecting the charger DC 5V 800mA.
11. Position Sensor 500mm (ribbon) - touch-sensitive sensor to change the key and play the melody in the range of 2 octaves. Octave range is highly dependent on the setting potentiometer "Pitch" (see point 5)
If you set "Pitch" tone startup at the C-3. The range of Position Sensor covers tones and mid-tone in octaves from C-3 to C-5. If a note startup is set to the C-6, range Position Sensor includes two octaves C-6 to C-8. However, if a note startup set to the maximum at the C-7, the range of the sensor is from C-7 to C-9. Location notes on the Position Sensor is in the chromatic scale.
Digidaki MIDI specification:
Control Change Messages RPN consistent with GM GS and XG standard.
CC # 74 - 0-127 - Controls the VCF, the standard cutoff frequency of the filter.
CC # 1 - 0-127 Basically controls the modulation function, but also can control
the effects of vibrato, loudness or brighness.
CC # 71 - 0-127 - Allows to shape the VCF Rezonance or Timbre or Harmonics.
CC # 123 - 0/127 - Panic. Sends all Note-OFF only for MIDI channel 1.
Channel Voice Messages
0x90 - Note-ON
0x80 - Note-OFF
0x90 - 36 (C-3) to 84 (C-7) - Define start note (drone)
The device operates on channel 1.
The structure is made of carbon-glass laminate. Is possible to manufacture wooden instrument.
The basic tone of the natural sound is D-3, optionally available are different tones - C-3, E-3, H-3
Digidaki has a built-in wireless transmitter. The data are transmitted to the receiver in the 2.4GHz band.
Transmitter power is 20mW, range of up to 15m. The device operates optimally when between Digidaki / receiver is the distance of 1-4m. At greater distances appear latency transmission rate of 5-10 ms.
Optional modules are also is installed. Bluetooth 4 allow for direct communication Digidaki with MIDI applications available for Apple products (iPhone, iPad). Optionally we can install wireless 2.4GHz, 24-bit 96kHz audio transmitter and high-quality miniature microphone for professional sound system didgeridoo.
LiPo Battery 2100mA / 3.7V. Digidaki working time after charging is average of 10 hours.
Charger DC 5V 800mA. During charging the battery, Digidaki can be use. Charging time is 3.5 - 4 hours if battery is flat. When the battery level falls to critical point of discharge, the instrument automatically switches off. This protection is designed to extend the "life" of the battery. Optionally is installed also circuits for induction charger.
The device has an internal modem to receive data from Digidaki, the data is converted to standard MIDI protocol speeds of 31250 baud.
Next the data is sent simultaneously to standard MIDI port OUT DIN5 and USB 2.0 port.
It is optionally installed wireless audio receiver for the natural sound of the didgeridoo.
Receiver quality is 24bit, 96kHz and RTS 6.3mm STEREO OUT.
The receiver has two power options:
1. Through the USB port.
2. Power Supply DC 12V 500mA
Optional is also available DSP FX processor for natural sound didgeridoo.
24bit / 96kHz offering 7 basic programs FX: Flanger, Delay, Chorus, Tremolo, Compressor, Parametric Equalizer, Pith Shifter and 21 possible combinations of these effects and adjustable saturation effects.
Effects processor is installed into the box receiver.
Installing the software for the USB port on Windows computers and Apple has been very easily, seamlessly and automatically. Simply connect the receiver to your PC using USB cable and the system automatically detect and install the Digidaki within 1-2 minutes.
The device will be available from the computer in the Device Manager under the name USB2.0- MIDI.
Digidaki works with any PC Windows XP, 7.8, and 10, and Apple. Working with any software that supports MIDI. Using the Digidaki you can play on virtual VST synthesizers or samplers, you can also freely assign MIDI messages from Digidaki to handle any features music software. Our controller perfectly works with the software FL Studio published by Imagic Line, also with Cubase or ProTools.
Coming soon Digidaki Forum, which we will move around all the subject and proposals to make use this unique controller, which is Digidaki.
In addition, via standard MIDI DIN5 can handle any hardware synthesizer or sampler etc. having an input MIDI. Tests covered instruments from Roland, Korg, Yamaha, Alesis and some others. In any case Digidaki works without problems. However, the old generation of instruments or computers with weak sound card with high latency, sporadically the machine can "choke" the amount of data flowing from Digidaki. The amount of data sent in one second is really impressive, which is also very fast change over time as messages CC. It is well illustrated by the debugger MIDI built-in software FL Studio.
In the event of a problem "choking" or sustain Note-ON - "Panic" button will solve the problem in second!
