ES-3 + ES-5 with Reason 10

Post by evileye0702 » Tue Jul 03, 2018 12:05 pm

I've got an ES-3, ES-5, a MOTU 16A audio interface, Silent Way and Reason 10 running under Windows 7 64bit.

Has anyone had any luck sending gate/clock/trigger signals from Reason to the ES-5 using the Silent Way VST plugins?

I started by trying the SW Sync plugin in ES-5 mode but Gate 1/1 wouldn't come out the ES-5. Gate 1/2 would come out the first ES-5 jack but Gate 1/3 would come out jacks 1 & 2.

I'll be trying the ES-5 Controller next but I Want to make sure I'm not wasting my time.

I have no problems using the same configuration from Ableton Live to control my modular and I have a pretty good understanding of Reason, routing and the Silent Way plugins.

BTW, SW Sync and the other SW plugins I've tried work just fine if going to ES-3 just not the ES-5.

The easiest way to send triggers and gates is to use the Silent Way Rack Extension. Plug your trigger/gate into the RE, then plug the dedicated trigger/gate audio output into whatever destination you’re using (ie ES-5 Controller VST’s optional audio inputs 1 thru 8).

I have an ES-3/5/8CV/8GT setup, so sending triggers to the 8GT (for my Euro drums) would need the ES-5 Controller set to send to Gates 3/1 thru 3/8 to utilize all the outputs of the 8GT for drums (8CV is set to channel 2, so that would be Gates 2/1 thru 2/8 if I wanted to send more gates to the 8CV).

Just out of curiosity, what versions of your ES-3 and ES-5 do you have (if you know)?

I think I have a decent grasp on how to set this stuff up in Reason now, as I was able to get MIDI clock out the other day to get a SUPER tight sync with a Roland TB-03. I've done Sync for Roland DIN Sync24 to a TR-606 in the past, but I'm having a little hardware issue right now, so I'd have to sort that out first before I could give some advice.

I need an additional reply post to add a new question about the ES-5, and I picked this one out of a hat. It is by far the most cryptic hardware I have ever worked with.
