The ESX-8GT is an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40, ES-5 or FHX-8GT, 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
The ESX-8GT's specifications are as follows:
- Panel width: 4HP
- Module depth: 24mm
- Analogue outputs: 8x 3.5mm jacks, DC-coupled
- Output voltages: 0V/5V
- Indicators: illuminated jack sockets
- Current draw: 20mA on the +12V rail, 0mA on the -12V rail
Power is supplied by the hosting ES-4/5/40 module, and is used for the LEDs only. I.e. with no LEDs lit, the current draw is 0mA.
The front panel is drilled for both Doepfer and Analogue Systems mounting holes (using a 'slot' rather than a single round hole).
