Announcing the disting mk4

NAMM 2017 - we're delighted to announce the next generation of the disting module - the disting mk4. The mk4 builds on the previous mk3 and adds these new features:
  • a dot matrix display, making menu navigation, parameter selection etc. a breeze.
  • a front panel accessible MicroSD card slot.
  • compatibility with the Macro Machines Storage Strip.
  • an internal precision clock allowing new algorithms such as a tuner, and pitch and frequency references.
The new version is largely software-compatible with the mk3, and the intention is to continue releasing new features for both the mk3 and mk4 in parallel.

The disting mk4 is expected to be available early March 2017. Pricing TBD.

ES-8 standalone mode and Windows drivers

NAMM 2017 - two major updates for the ES-8 USB 2.0 Audio Interface module.

Firstly, a new firmware release scheduled for just after NAMM will allow the ES-8 to work in 'standalone' mode, that is, without a USB connection. In this mode, the ES-8 functions as an ADAT-to-audio converter, much like a combination of the ES-3 and ES-6 modules.

Secondly, we're glad to announce that Windows drivers for the ES-8 will (at last) be available in February 2017, allowing users of Windows 7, 8 & 10 to utilise the ES-8 for the first time.

(Update - these are now available. See the ES-8 page for details.)
