Version 1.4 of the FH-2 firmware is now released. This adds a number of new features, including Scala microtuning support and operation with USB gamepads; it also includes some important bug fixes, notably when being driven from Elektron boxes e.g. the Octatrack.
Version 1.4 of the General CV firmware is now released. This adds a new 'Programmable' mode, allowing the use of the General CV as a general purpose CV-to-MIDI converter (in conjunction with the MIDI Breakout).
JINGS, CRIVVENS AND A HOOTS OF MY BOB, IT’S A VERY LIMITED EDITION DISTING MK4!
To celebrate Expert Sleepers's recent move to Scotland and our distribution partnership with Rubadub we are very proud to announce a limited edition run of the Disting mk4. This Disting mk4 features a face-plate designed by artist, Andrew Beltran, and draws its inspiration from a topographic map of the Scottish highlands. Each one will ship with some very special Scottish gifts.
We're excited to announce that the ES-8 USB Audio Interface module now comes with a free licence for Bitwig 8-Track.
"Bitwig 8-Track, the trim and effective digital audio workstation to start producing, performing, and designing sounds like a pro. 8-Track includes the entire collection of Bitwig Studio devices for use on up to eight project tracks with audio or MIDI. Also included, the Bitwig Essentials Package, a versatile selection of presets and sounds handpicked from the flagship Bitwig Studio Library. Connect your controller, record your instrument, produce simple arrangements, design new sounds, or just jam."
Expert Sleepers are at Superbooth '18, May 3rd-5th. We'll be at booth H251, showing the new FH-2 and Select Bus breakout modules, as well as most of the rest of our line (including more disting mk4's than you usually see in one place).
Version 1.2 of the General CV firmware is now released. This adds a new mode, 'Additive', and some important enhancements, notably the ability to remap CV inputs to your own choice of parameters, and to redefine the effect of the Mod Wheel.
The most recent update to macOS 10.13 "High Sierra" appears to have introduced an issue which causes hangs when closing the UI of Expert Sleepers plug-ins. We are working around this and will update all the plug-ins soon. In the meantime there is a beta release of Silent Way to address this issue here.
