Experiment: Expert Sleepers Disting precision adder and quantizer


Expert Sleepers Disting Mk4 is a utility module with dozens of algorithms. In this case I am testing out A-1 Precision Adder and H-3 Dual Quantizer. An adder combines voltages. In this case sequence pitch and a Quantizer converts input to a note from a specified scale, in this case p11 minor triad + root +5th+7th, with a root of B.


  • Simple four on the floor drumbeat in Ableton (NI Battery kit Lagos) with chance and randomization applied to the high hats.
  • Disting:
    • Simple sequence from Ableton fed via Endorphines Shuttle Control into Endorphines Furthrrr Generator for repeating base ebb and flow
    • That sequence is multed into disting precision adder A1 with clocked marbles fed in as well. The output runs through Disting H4 dual quantizer to x attenuation 12, y attenuation 24, scale minor triad + root +5th+7th with a root of B. The quantized sequence is run through Plaits.
  • Plaits:
    • Plays a C note with modulation from Clep Diaz
    • Set to Vowel and speech synthesis, which is a form of formant synthesis
  • Effects
    • Native Instruments Replica XT, and Raum provide delay, pitch and reverb effects
