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 included algorithms are:

There are currently two 'banks' of algorithms. The first 16 ('classic disting') are:

 Group 1Group 2Group 3Group 4
a Precision Adder 
with integer voltage offsets
Linear/Exponential Converter Sample and Hold 
with noise source and 
adjustable slew rate
with through zero frequency control 
and waveshaping
b Four Quadrant Multiplier 
with integer multiply/divide
with selectable scales
Slew Rate Limiter 
with linear and 
exponential slew
Clockable LFO 
with multiply/divide 
and waveshaping
c Full-wave Rectifier Comparator 
with adjustable hysteresis
Pitch and Envelope Tracker VCO with linear FM 
sine and saw outputs
d Minimum/maximum Dual Waveshaper 
wavefolder and 
triangle-to-sine shaper
Clockable Delay/Echo VCO with waveshaping 
and pulse outputs

The second bank contains:

 Group 1Group 2Group 3Group 4
a Voltage Controlled 
Delay Line
vibrato/chorus/flange effects
for drum synthesis
  LP/HP Filter
b     Tape Delay 
with voltage controlled tape speed
LP/BP Filter
c   Phaser 
up to 10 stages
  BP/HP Filter
d     State Variable Filter 
smoothly variable filter type
BP/Notch Filter

mk3 version

The disting mk3 was introduced in November 2015. The main differences compared to the original disting are:

  • Smaller - now 42mm deep (from 53mm)
  • Over 50% less power consumption - now 70mA combined draw (from 148mA)
  • User-updatable code - via Micro SD card
  • More algorithms - no longer limited to 16
  • More functionality - new encoder and push buttons give more control options


The disting mk3's specifications are as follows:

  • Panel width: 4HP
  • Module depth: 42mm
  • X & Y inputs, A & B outputs
    • Sample rate: 75kHz
    • ADC: 24 bit, THD+N -93dB, Dynamic range 99dB, SNR 99dB
    • DAC: 24 bit, THD+N -94dB, Dynamic range 105dB, SNR 104dB
  • Z input sample rate: 75kHz
  • CPU: Microchip PIC32MX at up to 50MHz
  • Current draw: 50mA on the +12V rail, 20mA on the -12V rail (70mA total)

The front panel is drilled for both Doepfer and Analogue Systems mounting holes (using a 'slot' rather than a single round hole). The power connector is a Doepfer standard 10 way IDC, with -12V furthest from the top of the board.

For more detail, please see the user manual.

Pricing & Availablity

The disting mk3 will be available in November 2015.


The disting is based around a PIC microcontroller, with a programming/debug header available on the board. Using Microchip's free development tools a user can easily hack the disting to perform their own functions.

We have provided an open source code framework into which developers can slot their own algorithms. This can be found here. There is a thread about disting firmware hacking on the forum here.

The framework has not yet been updated for the disting mk3.
