Connect Your DAW Directly To Analogue Synths


Expert Sleepers has announced a new Eurorack module - the ES-3 Lightpipe/CV Interface. Here's all the details:
The ES-3 is a Eurorack format module which converts eight channels of ADAT Lightpipe input to DC coupled outputs on 3.5mm jacks, for the ultimate convenience in connection of a DAW directly to analogue synthesizers.
The outputs can be used as control voltages (CVs), for example with software such as Expert Sleepers Silent Way, and can also be used as audio outputs at high, modular synth-compatible levels.
With the ES-3, a single optical cable is all that is need to bring direct CV control from your DAW right into the heart of a modular system.
Specifications:
  • Panel width: 8HP
  • Module depth: 53mm
  • Input connection: optical, ADAT Lightpipe standard, 44.1/48kHz
  • D/A conversion: 24 bit, 105dB SNR typical
  • Output connections: 8x 3.5mm jacks, DC-coupled
  • Maximum output voltage: approximately ±10V DC
  • Indicators: LED for ADAT clock sync; 2 LEDs per channel indicate output voltage (+ve/-ve)
Available as standard with a black aluminium or translucent black acrylic front panel. There will also be a limited edition of 25 individually numbered modules with an orange acrylic panel to match the ES-1/ES-2-2 modules.
Pricing and Availability:
The ES-3 is expected to be available from February 2011. Pricing TBD. More information:
