We're happy to announce the release of an updated version of the ESX-8CV, the ESX-8CV mk2.

Functionally equivalent to the original ESX-8CV, the mk2 adds illuminated jack sockets, has reduced power consumption, and matches the look of the ES-8 and the other recent module updates.

The ESX-8CV mk2 is available immediately at a MSRP of $169/€169.

disting mk4 MIDI ports revealed

At Superbooth we showed an additional feature of the disting mk4 not previously documented or demoed.

The disting mk4 has a pair of MIDI ports (in and out), allowing it to both receive MIDI (for additional control over the algorithms) and generate MIDI (to control external MIDI gear from its algorithms and CV inputs). New dedicated MIDI-to-CV and CV-to-MIDI algorithms have been added; existing algorithms have had MIDI output added — notably the Quantizer and MIDI File Playback. The MIDI ports are accessed by an expansion module, and details are available so people can make their own DIY version, which is a very simple project. It is also planned to release a kit version of the expander — stand by for news on that.
