Expert Sleepers Intros ESX-8MD Expansion Module

Expert Sleepers has released the ESX-8MD MIDI/DINsync Expander – an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5. The new module adds eight MIDI/DINsync outputs from one expansion header.

The ES-4/5 Controller software (part of Expert Sleepers Silent Way) allows the ESX-8MD outputs to be used for MIDI output (note – not just MIDI clock output, but as an actual MIDI port, capable of sending any MIDI messages). Since these outputs are driven from an audio connection, they have sample-accurate timing, which no USB MIDI interface can claim.

The Silent Way Sync plug-in would typically be used to send DINsync to the ESX-8MD, though any software capable of addressing the ES-4/5’s expansion headers, via Silent Way or the Max/MSP external, can send clock pulses to it.

  1. Can’t speak highly enough of Os and ExpertSleepers!
    My ES-1, ES-4, ES-4gates & ESX-4CV have completely transformed how I use my modular rig – everything is perfectly in sync with my Daw and a beauty case full of stuff is MUCH cheaper than Innerclock stuff !

    Bloody love Expert Sleepers and hope to pick this up as a partner to my 606 asap!
