ES-8 now includes Bitwig 8-Track

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."

Down To The Wire presentation

On 11th April 2018, Os of Expert Sleepers travelled down to Elevator Sound (Bristol) to give a presentation, which is now available to watch online.

Nearly two hours of demos, covering Silent Way and various Expert Sleepers interfacing options, as well as the disting mk4 and General CV modules.

ES-8 standalone mode and Windows drivers

NAMM 2017 - two major updates for the ES-8 USB 2.0 Audio Interface module.

Firstly, a new firmware release scheduled for just after NAMM will allow the ES-8 to work in 'standalone' mode, that is, without a USB connection. In this mode, the ES-8 functions as an ADAT-to-audio converter, much like a combination of the ES-3 and ES-6 modules.

Secondly, we're glad to announce that Windows drivers for the ES-8 will (at last) be available in February 2017, allowing users of Windows 7, 8 & 10 to utilise the ES-8 for the first time.

(Update - these are now available. See the ES-8 page for details.)
