"Modular reviews" very cool but you should of started with a less complicated module then Expert Sleepers. I can not wait for more modular reviews. Thanks SS.

I've been waiting for the modular reviews for a long time. When this hit I got so excited. This was the best surprise on the site in a long time! Keep up the reviews! I really want to get in to modular synths so these type of reviews are great!

I agree with the other posters. More modular reviews. Filters, oscillators, weird stuff-- like what the heck does the Doepher A-107 Multitype Morphing Filter sound like? MORE!

More, More and more...    Said...

Analogue modules…Digital modules….some many to choose from……

Please review, on post!

=)

…thank you for this kind, informative (and necessary) service.

Another vote for more modular videos! I think it's great you decided to cover this and it has me a little more interested in software integration now.

Fantastic. Currently using a yammie N12 and curious as to how this will integrate with expert sleepers now inspired to look further.

I dont know the spec, but if it has an SPDFI out then wait for the ES-4 you get 5 channels of CV through some extremely clever use of multiple 8-bit channels

Nick, Wicked series idea!! Great first feature!! One thing I would say on the pricing of the ES-3..you are getting a 24bit D-A (x8) AUDIO converter at the same time as the CV business.. ok, no rack or PSU.. but assuming it sounds fab.. I think it's a creative way of looking at the expense!!

RE:N12 No SPDIF and only summed outputs, no channel outs from mixer. Thinking of trying the channel insert effect sends as outputs to ES1. Sound credible?

Hey Nick (and eveyone else)!

I purchased the ES-3 and I can actually control my modular from Propellerhead Reason and Record! It took some effort to get the tuning+scaling right but now I can sequence from within Reason and everything is tight with Reason's own instruments.

It's the same principle that Kurt Kurasaki aka Peff used a couple of years ago with a MOTU card: http://www.peff.com/journal/2009/06/12/reason-cvgate-to-analog-synths/

It's so very cool! Through the ES-3 I can automate parameters on the modular from Reason, as long as it has a CV input. :)

Also if you do simpler stuff and have enough modules you could sequence i.e. both bass and lead from Reason and Record at the same time! Because the ES-3 has 8 outputs you could send CV/GATE on different outs so I succesfully managed to have the modular play both bass in one go.

If anyone is into both Eurorack modulars and Reason+Record I can highly recommend getting the ES-3!

The sentence above should read:

"succesfully managed to have the modular play both bass and lead in one go."
