Expert Sleepers ESX-8GT mk2 Gate Expander
The Expert Sleepers ESX-8GT mk2 Gate Expander is a sub-module in the extension series of Expert Sleepers modules - by means of it you are able to generate and realise more gate signals on 8 extra outputs within the system and connect it to further expansion modules or desired gate inputs in your eurorack modular system.
Previously known as ES-4 Gate Expander, the Expert Sleepers ESX-8GT Gate Expander is a Eurorack module that works in tandem with the ES-4 & ES-5 to offer 8 on/off outputs for use as gates, triggers, clocks etc.
Up to five ESX-8GT Gate Expanders can be attached to one ES-4/ES-5 – one per module channel. (The 8 outputs of the Gate Expander reflect the 8 bits of CV information passed to the modules’s DACs.) Therefore you can combine the modules to create a system with up to 40 independent gate outputs – all driven from a single S/PDIF connection.
The ES-4 Gate Expander’s specifications are as follows:
- Panel width: 4HP
- Module depth: 24mm
- Analogue outputs: 8x 3.5mm jacks, DC-coupled
- Output voltages: 0V/5V or 0V/12V, selectable via jumper in groups independently for channels 1-4 and 5-8
- Indicators: LED per channel
- The front panel is drilled for both Doepfer and Analogue Systems mounting holes (using a ‘slot’ rather than a single round hole).
