Is there a way of getting (possibly clocked) random voltage like from a Doepfer A-118 from the Disting Mk4?

If you leave the disting mk4 on a single algorithm and ignore additional parameters for its entire lifetime, you have a module with two knobs, three input jacks, and two output jacks. The function of those knobs and jacks can be easily memorized.
And what's crazy is for 75%+ of its algorithms, it's still a very cost effective module even if you did dedicate it to a single function.

^ This. I may have used only a total of 10 different algorithms on my Disting (in actual patches, other than just playing around with it), but those ten algorithms alone make it totally worth it.

@os: Bit off-topic, but discovered your band 'Darkroom' because of your product-placement blank panels.
Very nice.
Loving the contrabass clarinet. You do like your low notes.
Now I understand why you demoed the audio-to-CV convertor with clarinet sounds.
Bet it would struggle with the bottom notes.

Please see this post viewtopic.php?f=35&t=244394#p3456749 about a charity fundraiser we're running, auctioning some very rare disting mk4s.

I've used close to half, although a lot of those were just like, "Well, let's see what *this* does..." rather than an actual need. On a day-to-day basis I use like 6-10 algos on the regular, but it's really great knowing all that other stuff is there when I need it. Like the other day, I realized I needed a compressor to get some stuff to sit correctly and, hey, Disting has a compressor!

Does anyone know what kind of knobs are used on the Disting Mk. 4? I scratched up one of mine pretty severely during a panel-swap and I'd like to get another. I know that most knobs fit for a 6mm splined shaft will work, but I'd rather get an original if possible.
