Just stumbled across this post. Looks fantastic.. I just took delivery of a Elby Interceptor but this looks like it might be a better match for a CR8000 if it can do Trig and Clock simultaneously..

So, any news on the release date please? Is it still looking like Feb (this month)?

thanks,

Hi A - I once asked the same question as I had (and still have) little interest in modular synths but could see how fantastic a ES3 and ES5 setup would be for me. I could easily justify the price of the ES units but, the extra cost of a case and power was inhibiting and put me off for well over a ye...

Roland CR78-PGM Alternative - step programming ES3 setup

Hi all - I previously posted this topic on how to program a Roland CR78 using Silent Ways. It relied on writing live Clips and playing these into the CR78. I realised that a lot of the fun of programming the CR78 is the randomness of step programming (like when using the WS-1) so, I setup this patch...

Looks like you're using mono Ext Out selections in Live. You need to use a stereo out for the ES-5 or Live messes up the signal. Hi os. I had a huge wrestling match with the Stereo/Mono issue last night so I appreciate I might have it wrong. As confirmation, what should I use? ES3 – I have i...

Hi OS. Im really sorry but Im getting nowhere with my ES5 setup. As per Delta's question, I purchased a ES3 + ES5 combo so I could: ES3 -> CV to synth ES5 -> Gate to synth This would allow me to control 8 mono synths. The ES3 setup is fine but, I just can not get the ES5 to carry the gate. Despite o...

I could easily use 15v for filter control on synths like my Korg Sigma and 800dv. But its not a big issue as 12v gets me most of the way there anyway..

Hi all – I had a quick play with this but could not work it out.. Can I get a single Voice Controller to send its CV to ES3 output1 and, its Gate to a ES5 output1? This would allow me to keep the ES3 for just CV and the ES5 for just gates, potentially providing CV&Gate for 7 synths (the ES3 l...

Do you still have this issue when you load a calibration for SW Voice Controller? I didn't see you do that in the video. Hi – I do not run the Calibration routine as the above is a prerequisite of calibrations. Eg: getting CV to the track’s Left channel, Gate to the Right. So, my main...

Hi all Just got my ES3 and ES5 from Rubadub. Does the ES5 need a power cable or does it get power from the ES3? My ES5 only came with the ES3 interconnect. The ES5 user manual suggests you also need a power cable. I wont be using it until tomorrow so don't know for sure. The ES5 had preciously been ...
