To celebrate Expert Sleepers recent move to Scotland and their distribution partnership with Rubadub we are very proud to announce a limited edition run of the Disting mk4. This Disting mk4 features a face-plate designed by artist, Andrew Beltran, and draws its inspiration from a topographic map of the Scottish highlands. Each one will ship with some very special Scottish gifts.

Expert Sleepers is the brain-child of Andrew Ostler, first taking shape as a software company back in 2004. In 2008 they began making modules for the eurorack format and in June 2014 the MK1 Disting was released.

Rubadub began life as a record shop way back in 1992. Since then it’s grown into an organisation that sells and distributes the best in underground electronic music and electronic music production/DJ equipment.

The Disting is a multi-function module for the eurorack modular synthesiser environment. It is 4HP in width and has (at moment of writing) 84 distinct algorithms:

The first 16 ('classic disting') are:

Precision Adder with integer voltage offsets
Four Quadrant Multiplier with integer multiply/divide
Full-wave Rectifier
Linear/Exponential Converter
Quantizer with selectable scales
Comparator with adjustable hysteresis
Dual Waveshaper wavefolder and triangle-to-sine shaper
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
LFO with through zero frequency control and waveshaping
Clockable LFO with multiply/divide and waveshaping
VCO with linear FM sine and saw outputs
VCO with waveshaping saw/triangle and pulse outputs

The remaining algorithms are:

Precision Adder with fractional voltage offsets
Voltage Controlled Delay Line vibrato/chorus/flange effects
Clockable Ping Pong Delay
Clockable Ping Pong Delay with input pan control
Resonator for drum synthesis
Vocoder 12 band
Phaser up to 10 stages
