The Disting EX seems to have lost the Mk4's function that loaded the last used algorithm, automatically saved as preset 0, on booting up. Or am I missing something?

That's true, it doesn't do that.

It would be great if it could be brought back as an option, Os.

Not remembering the last algo/dual algo is a deal breaker for me too. Sure I can save, but it makes it much more cumbersome to use.

I remember a thread on Reddit that asked people what they used their Disting(s) for. Most just used it for one function, occasionally alternating between two. Being able to switch on a large rig with modules defaulting to what they were last doing is pretty vital these days.

I think/hope os forgot a "yet." :)

...which has almost been like a theme for the Distings throughout the years, no? Ever evolving and improving.

With 2 Mk4s in there already I'm thinking that a combination of Lemur running the excellent Mk4 template (created by someone on this forum) and maybe a bunch of TouchOsc sliders will make my life a lot easier.
Would love more info on this please!

Am currently assembling what I need to do this. Today I put a DIN midi in to the case that will take the EX - even I can manage to solder 2 wires without burning myself too badly. Waiting for delivery of a USB to Din cable. And the EX. Once its all in place I'll report back.
Still a work in progress but progress is being made.

The Lemur template is excellent but I'm struggling to work out exactly how its put together so, until I do that, I can't work out how to edit it to incorporate any additions to the Mk4 algorithms.

So instead, I'm working on a simpler TouchOSC template which should be easier to adapt to accommodate future changes as well as include dedicated pages for the EX native algos.

A long way to go still but it does seem to work reasonably well. Quick demo here..

I'm curious, how many people who pre-ordered from Control got their modules, and how many are still waiting for a shipping notification? (And maybe, did you choose free shipping or one of the other options?)

Their website still shows it as a "pre-order" but having seen people post that they've gotten theirs, it makes me wonder.

I only ordered mine yesterday early evening and I got a notification that it is being delivered some time this coming Monday.

I'm very surprised by that as I thought that these were going to be as rare as hen's teeth for a bit.

Now I've got to have a think about what I'm going to do with it. Or else just put it on oscillator duties like my two mk3 and two mk4 distings...

Has anyone got theirs from anywhere but Control yet? I pre-ordered from Perfect Circuit about six hours after it was announced and I haven't heard a word... If people are getting orders from Control filled that were made in the past few days, seems I'd be better off cancelling my perfect circuit order and ordering from control...

Control doesn't give 10% off preorders like Perfect Circuit and Detroit Modular though. I ordered from Detroit a week ago and haven't heard anything yet.

Ordered within an hour of it being announced and it shipped from Perfect Circuit yesterday. Hopefully they're boxing yours now.

Hmm, I will contact Control and ask them what's going on.

Must be something to do with who has what in stock. And I'm in the UK, which is where I am assuming they are made, up in Edinburgh (I could be wrong on that). Perhaps they are still making their way across the pond.

So I just got lucky.

Ah, I misinterpreted your post :)

Anyway, Control got back to me and said I just barely missed the cutoff from the small initial batch of modules they received. There's another bunch of them held up in customs at the moment but there shouldn't be too much more of a wait. :yay:

Modules continue to trickle out of the factory. Nobody panic! But do choose a retailer that you trust to only pre-sell as many as they have confirmed stock coming.

Mine arrived a few days ago, love your work Os.

Been using the Matrix Mixer tonight to mix a load of CVs to create interconnected melodies, one thing is bugging me though - it would be great if you could choose scales/roots etcc. for the quantise options rather than just semitones. It would turn it into an amazing precision adder/quantiser combo.

Mine has just been dropped off by DPD, 48 hours earlier than expected :mrgreen:

It's now in the Covid-19 quarantine area...
