The DACO160AGC (Evaluation Kit with Automatic Gain Control) is a small printed circuit board (PCB) containing the digital version of the ACO160 audio-controlled oscillator implemented with an ST Microelectronics micro-controller.
In addition to all the features of its predecessor, the DACO160EVK, the AGC version includes automatic gain control (AGC), an awesome feature that automatically finds the optimum input preamp gain setting as you play. It also features firmware updates via SD card.
The DACO160AGC contains everything you need to convert any monophonic audio signal to synth waves (sine, square, or sawtooth), pitch/env/gate CVs to control analog synths, or MIDI.
See the simplified block diagram of the DACO160AGC below. This device contains everything you need to evaluate using the digital audio-controlled oscillator (DACO) technology in your own synth products. The full datasheet can be downloaded here. Contact us for more information.
