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. Continue reading
