Expert Sleepers ESX-8MD


The ESX-8MD is a MIDI and DIN Sync expansion module for the Expert Sleepers modules ES-4, ES-40 and ES-5. It gives you eight outputs for sample-accurate MIDI or DIN Sync signals. The MIDI outputs not only transmit MIDI Clock but any MIDI message with a way better timing than any USB/MIDI interface!



The ESX-8MD adds eight MIDI/DIN Sync outputs from one expansion header.
The ES-4/5 controller software (part of Expert Sleepers' own software Silent Way) makes it possible to use the MIDI outs not only for MIDI clock - they are capable of sending any MIDI message. As Silent Way uses audio to transmit controller data the ESX-8MD's MIDI and DIN Sync signals are sample-accurate and way faster than any USB/MIDI interface


Software is required to operate the ESX-8MD as noted above. Currently, the only such software is Expert Sleepers Silent Way, and our Max/MSP external. Note that MIDI functionality is only available via Silent Way.
Silent Way is available in AudioUnit, VST & AAX formats for Mac OS X and Windows. Use of Silent Way therefore requires a compatible host application (DAW). A Silent Way licence is not included with the ESX-8MD, it can be purchased at Expert Sleepers' website.
