Multi-function Module, with Scrolling Display & SD Card Reader

In stock


The Disting is a 16-in-1 multifunction module, offering a variety of CV and audio processes, including a selection of oscillators (LFOs/VCOs). All algorithms have two high-precision inputs and outputs, and a third control input, exposed on a front panel knob and a CV input.

The outputs can be used as control voltages (CVs), for example with software such as Expert Sleepers Silent Way, and can also be used as audio outputs at high, modular synth-compatible levels. The disting is also a sample (WAV) file and MIDI file player, with a variety of options for sample triggering, playback speed etc.

Regular updates have added more and more features to this ever-popular module (see below for summary)


March 2017: Updated to mk.4 – the main differences are:

  • Dot matrix screen, capable of showing text and numeric values
  • Micro SD card slot accessible on the front panel
  • Compatibility with the Select Bus protocol
  • An internal precision clock allowing new algorithms such as a tuner, and pitch and frequency references


The ORIGINAL Disting algorithms:

  • Precision Adder with integer voltage offsets
  • Linear/ Exponential Converter
  • Sample and Hold with noise source and adjustable slew rate
  • LFO with through zero frequency control and waveshaping
