February 2017 sees the launch of the “ES-3 mk4”. Functionally equivalent to the ES-3 mk3, the mk4 adds these improvements:
Illuminated jack sockets, less deep
The ES-3 is a Eurorack format module, which converts 8 channels of ADAT Lightpipe input to 8 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, Max/MSP, Reaktor, CV Toolkit etc.. It 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 needed to bring direct CV control from your DAW right into the heart of a modular system.
Power: 148mA @ +12v / 18mA @ -12v
