The ES-8 is a USB 2.0 class-compliant audio interface in a Eurorack module, with DC-coupled inputs and outputs that can be used for both CVs and audio. As such it is directly compatible with all popular computer-based CV generation software (e.g. Silent Way, Max/MSP, Reaktor, CV Toolkit, zMors, Audulus, Bitwig Studio, etc.) as well as audio and CV processing iOS apps.

The ES-8 also has ADAT inputs & outputs. This could be used for example to expand the I/O count via an Expert Sleepers ES-3 and/or ES-6, or to connect a traditional audio interface to add, say, mic preamps or 1/4" line outputs (for example with the Behringer ADA8200).

Without a USB connection, the ES-8 can be used as a standalone ADAT-to-audio converter, providing DC-coupled I/O expansion for another ADAT-equipped audio interface.

An expansion header allows connection of an Expert Sleepers ES-5, to which in turn you can connect Expert Sleepers gate, CV and MIDI expanders.

The ES-8 has a high quality internal clock, and it can optionally sync to the clock from the input ADAT signal.

  • Channel count: 12 in, 16 out
  • Supported sample rates: 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, 96kHz
  • Audio sample depth: 24 bit
  • Output connections: 8x 3.5mm TS jacks, DC-coupled
  • Maximum output voltage: approximately ±10V DC
  • Analogue inputs: 4x 3.5mm TS jacks, DC-coupled
  • Input voltage range: approximately ±10V
  • Digital I/O: 1x ADAT input, 1x ADAT output
  • Expansion headers: 1 for ES-5, 1 for ES-6

The front panel is drilled for both Doepfer and Analogue Systems mounting holes (using a 'slot' rather than a single round hole). The power connector is a Doepfer standard 16 way IDC, with -12V furthest from the top of the board.
