Product information "Expert Sleepers - Disting Mk4"

Jack of all trades – The Disting Mk4 is a multifunctional module with two inputs and outputs. Close to 60 algorithms are available for processing and / or generating audio respectively CV signals. Oscillator, filter, resonator, wave shaper, LFO, envelope, quantizer, slew limiter, bit crusher, phaser, delay or logic processor are just a few examples of how this circuit can be used. Thanks to a CV input, it is possible to modulate parameters.

New in version 4 is a matrix display, which makes browsing through menus a lot easier.  The microSD card slot is now situated on the module’s front panel. An integrated precision clock allows users to employ the circuit as a tuner or for generating reference signals.

The Disting’s algorithms are divided into five banks with four groups each. In detail, the following modes of operation are available:


Bank 1 / Group 1:
  • Precision adder with integer voltage offsets
  • Four quadrant multiplier with integer multiply / divide

  • Comparator with adjustable hysteresis
  • Dual wave shaper

Bank 1 / Group 3:
  • Sample and hold with noise source and adjustable slew rate
  • Slew rate limiter with linear and exponential slew
  • Pitch and envelope tracker
  • Clockable delay / echo

Bank 1 / Group 4:
  • LFO with through zero frequency control and wave shaping
  • Clockable LFO with multiply / divide and wave shaping
