Disting MK4

SOLD OUT Disting MK4

The Expert Sleepers Disting MK4 is a many-in-1 multi-function 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 front panel knob and a CV input.

The Disting is also a sample (WAV) file and MIDI file player, with a variety of options for sample triggering, playback speed etc.
