Expert Sleepers Intros Disting mk4 Eurorack Module

At the 2017 NAMM Show, Expert Sleepers has introduced the next generation of the disting Eurorack module – the disting mk4.

The mk4 builds on the previous mk3 and adds these new features:

  • a dot matrix display, making menu navigation, parameter selection etc. a breeze.
  • a front panel accessible MicroSD card slot.
  • compatibility with the Macro Machines Storage Strip.
  • an internal precision clock allowing new algorithms such as a tuner, and pitch and frequency references.

The new version is largely software-compatible with the mk3, and the intention is to continue releasing new features for both the mk3 and mk4 in parallel.

The disting mk4 is expected to be available early March 2017. Pricing TBD.

  1. Although the Disting is a powerful module, for me the allure of Eurorack is immediacy. I don’t like modules that need to be programmed with a computer, with front panel jacks or controls that are unmarked because their function depends on how the module is programmed.

    To each their own of course – Disting is cool, but it doesn’t belong in my system!

    1. I think these are used more as a backup utility than an alternative to dedicated modules. Always preferable to use a proper screwdriver or scissors, but in a pinch, a swiss army knife will do.

      1. This might not be your goto utility but in a small case it could be. It would be killer if you could control it from your smartphone or tablet.

          1. Maybe WiFi? Something like an ESP8266 could be hidden behind the panel (no need for connections etc.) and handle either a web interface or an networked OSC connection. Might be fun.

    2. i love them 🙂

      you gotta see them as backups, like rolands scooper. theyre not meant to be programmed at a daily basis, just if you need a delay, you put the software on, and got a delay till the day you bought yourself a dedicated one. then use it for something else.

      also its a great way to play around with scripts without having to design/built a panel with all the peripherical stuff a module involves (besides the micro controller)
