Expert Sleepers ESX-8MD mk2 Disting Audio Processor Module

The ESX-8MD is an expansion module for the ES-4,ES-40 or ES-5, adding 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.

ESX-8MD mk2

From December 2014, the ESX-8MD is shipping in a revised "mk2" form. Functionally the mk2 is equivalent to the mk1. However, MIDI output is now guaranteed at all samples rates, for all receiving devices. (The mk1 was incompatible with some devices when running at 44.1kHz.)

Expert Sleepers ESX-8MD mk2 Specifications

Panel width: 10HP

Module depth: 27mm

Digital input: connection from ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5 module

Outputs: 8 5-pin DIN sockets, wired for both MIDI and DINsync

Each channel is wired individually for MIDI (8 simultaneous outputs)

Channels are wired in pairs for DINsync (4 simultaneous outputs, each duplicated on two sockets)

Indicators: 1 LED per channel indicating activity

Current draw: 23mA on the +12V rail, 0mA on the -12V rail (12mA total)

The front panel is drilled for both Doepfer and Analogue Systems mounting holes (using a 'slot' rather than a single round hole). The power connector is a Doepfer standard 10 way IDC, with -12V furthest from the top of the board.

Software Requirements

The ESX-8MD requires software in order to operate, 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.

Import duties, LOCAL taxes and CUSTOMS charges (WHERE APPLICABLE) are not included in the item price or shipping charges and are the buyer's responsibility so please check with your local customs office to determine if you will be liable to any additional costs prior to bidding/buying.

If local import and/or clearance charges are levied, these are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse these for additional shipping charges.

We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as gifts – UK and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.

We are happy to ship items worldwide and international buyers are always welcome. That said, here are a few extra things that our international customers should know:

We will not falsify customs documents. Doing so constitutes fraud and is illegal both in your country and ours. People have gone to jail over this, and it is absolutely not worth it, so please don't ask.
Our return policy applies to international buyers, so if you are not happy you can return it for a refund of the purchase price, but please note that we will not refund shipping charges or duties, just the purchase price.
We always try and ship items as quickly as possible. International buyers should know that it occasionally takes the carrier several days to collect but unfortunately this is beyond our control.
