the esx-8gt is an expansion module for the es-4, es-40 or es-5, adding 8 on/off outputs for use as gates, triggers, clocks etc. from one expansion header.
the es-4/5 controller software (part of expert sleepers silent way) also allows the esx-8gt outputs to be used for din sync or 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. see the accessories page for the
necessary cables. note there is also the esx-8md module, which is dedicated to midi and dinsync duties.
panel width: 4hp
module depth: 24mm
analogue outputs: 8x 3.5mm jacks, dc-coupled
output voltages: 0v/5v
indicators: led per channel
current draw: none (the module is entirely passive)
the front panel is drilled for both doepfer and analogue systems mounting holes (using a 'slot' rather than a single round hole).
** note - the midi out feature is only officially supported at sample rates of 48khz and above, though some users report success with specific hardware when running at 44.1khz.
