The Expert Sleepers ES-8 is essentially a USB 2.0 interface built into a Eurorack module. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound - rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs, etc. All rights reserved. Voice Controller will cope with both Volt‑per‑octave and Hz/Volt synths. This needs to be pointed out in case you want to work in real time, but have an audio interface that does not currently give you the latency you demand. Company: Expert Sleepers. There is even a 'quadrature' option, which can lock the two LFOs together with a variable phase offset. Feed the same keyboard output voltage into the control input of a filter's cutoff frequency, and the filter can be made to open wider as keys are pressed further up the keyboard. of an analogue system. Web site designed & maintained by PB Associates & SOS. A fundamental example would be the voltage output from a musical keyboard which, when fed into an oscillator's pitch control input, is used to create musical notes. The Expert Sleepers Eurorack products allow digital audio outputs from computers to be injected as analog control voltages and gates into Eurorack synthesizers. This is especially useful when combined with the Step LFO plug-in in order to accurately sequence musical notes, but it can also be used with e.g. The contents of this article are subject to worldwide copyright protection and reproduction in whole or part, whether mechanical or electronic, is expressly forbidden without the prior written consent of the Publishers. Envelope generators, LFOs and analogue sequencers all operate on the same principle: create a voltage and apply that voltage as a controller somewhere else. currently, the only such software is the 'esx-4cv combiner' plug-in, part of expert sleepers silent way. If you dream of controlling your analogue synths from within your DAW software, it may be that your audio interface will let you do just that — with a little help from this plug‑in suite. I used a few simple stereo‑jack‑to‑twin‑mono‑jack adaptors. In the early days of musician‑friendly synthesizers, the ability to pass control voltages between synths to allow them to work together was not lost on savvy users. In the case of my combination of MOTU 828 and Minimoog, I managed to achieve a consistently accurate four‑and‑a‑half‑octave span of 54 semitones from F#‑1 to B3, which I felt to be a reasonable working range. the esx-4cv requires software in order to time-multiplex the four output signals, and to encode them for the es-4 or es-5. Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. Silent Way LFO is also a two‑channel plug‑in, enabling sophisticated free‑running or tempo‑sync'ed cyclic control‑voltage waveforms to be created. the regular LFO plug-in, or with the Voice Controller plug-in to turn portamentos into discrete glissandos. Generally, the ES-3 works well with calibration working as expected on a lot of synths. The three envelope generators can be tweaked as simple ADSR devices, or you can go into more detail for each envelope, with a range of multi‑stage controls for both time and shape. Language: English. Silent Way Trigger is a simple plug-in for generating a gate or envelope in response to an incoming MIDI note. Expert Sleepers “Silent Way” – MIDI-to-CV interface alternative? Silent Way Sync takes the DIN sync generator from the ES-4 Controller plug-in and expands on it to become a general purpose clock/trigger/sync plug-in. Adam T5V or Rokit 5 G3/G4...which should I go for? These go far beyond simple monosynth control and into the dizzy realms of powerful modular synth systems, where I can imagine a very sophisticated control system with Silent Way at its heart. It is intended to be used in conjunction with parameter automation (via MIDI or directly by the host application) to generate varying signals. If the latency you experience using a VST Instrument is not good for you, Silent Way will not improve matters. One particularly interesting feature of LFO is its ability to add an asymmetric offset to the waveform. These can in turn be used to control all sorts of software and hardware devices. Silent Way Quantizer is a CV processing plug-in that constrains the incoming (continuous) CVs to a number of discrete values. Expert Sleepers haben aktuell mit Silent Way for VCV Rack eine kleine Sammlung von nützlichen virtuellen Modulen herausgebracht. (CV) Control Voltage-Generating Plug-ins [Mac/PC], Win! Expert Sleepers has released Silent Way, a suite of plug-ins designed for use as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. Silent Way CV To OSC translates CV signals (such as those produced by Silent Way CV Input, for example) into OSC messages. Loads of new goodies have been added, not least of which is support for 64-bit systems, MIDI learn and plug-ins for use with Expert Sleepers' own hardware modules, the ES-4 and ES-5. It dismays me that so many synth manufacturers seem content to supply their instruments with only one or the other, when it can make an enormous difference to the way a synth part is played. in your synth. Right: Voice Trigger reproduces the gate and envelope features from Voice Controller in a smaller and neater package. This is achieved by simply clicking a calibration button on the plug‑in, whereupon a rising series of voltages is output from the plug‑in and a mapping is automatically created, aligning voltages to MIDI note values. If the interface features balanced outputs (as do most), you'll need a special cable to tap the voltage from two of the three wires, and it is also possible to tap a second, inverted copy of the CV. MUSICAL FEATURES ※このモジュールは、Expert Sleepersのプラグイン Silent Way 等の、オーディオインターフェースからCVを出すソフトウェアの使用を前提としたモジュールです。当店ではそれらソフトウェアの販売・サポートは行っておりませんのでご注意ください。 My time with Silent Way was quite a liberating experience. Expert Sleepers' Silent Way is one answer. VCV Library Instructions. Uses up audio outputs that may be needed for other duties. The plugins make no sound, but are designed to generate control voltages. Despite enormous strides in the authenticity of emulations, the attraction of a genuine analogue device endures. Then a simple patch is made using a VCA and an envelope generator, triggered by a gate signal from Silent Way. Available voltage range may not be great enough for some users. Silent Way DC is, perhaps, the simplest of the Silent Way plug‑ins. I linked the outputs of the MOTU 828 into my Minimoog's gate and pitch CV inputs, and after the brief calibration process I was up and running. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound - rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs etc. Recently got the Expert Sleepers ES-3 and tried it out on a few synths. Inspiring stuff indeed. For more information, please see the dedicated AC Encoder page at the Expert Sleepers website. These CVs can also be offset by a fixed amount. Voice Controller is capable of generating six control voltages, including a gate signal, pitch and envelope voltages. Silent Way is a genuine alternative to a MIDI‑to‑CV interface, and capable of a greater level of sophistication. of an analogue system. Setting it up can be a little daunting, but the web site does a good job of guiding you through, with tutorials for a number of popular DAWs. The plug-ins produce no sound themselve... Silent Way by Expert Sleepers - Related Products These can in turn be used to control all sorts of software and hardware devices. All nerdiness aside, the potential world of sound that Silent Way opens up is amazing. UK music developer Expert Sleepers has released Silent Way 1.4.0, an update to its system for modular synthesizer control.. Silent Way v2.0.0 updates include: 5 new plug-ins: Silent Way ES-5 Controller, Silent Way ESX-4CV Combiner,… The views expressed are those of the contributors and not necessarily those of the publishers. Simple and functional. Wish your synth had more modulation sources? It has a similar range of controls to the corresponding features in Voice Controller, with all of its offset, envelope, smoothing and the ability to set minimum and maximum CVs. Thankfully it wasn't long before MIDI‑to‑CV interfaces began to appear, and pre‑MIDI synths were able to join the new age of MIDI‑driven music production. Used in conjunction with, say, Silent Way LFO, the CV To MIDI plug-in provides a standalone means of generating MIDI LFOs, giving Silent Way an application to musicians who have no analogue gear at all. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound - rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs etc. It might not seem so exciting until you remember that all of these plug‑ins can be automated from your host DAW, whereupon you'll hopefully begin to see the potential. A single registration permits installation on three computers. Silent Way AC Encoder removes the need for a DC-coupled audio interface (common to Silent Way and all other software that generates CVs) and lets you use Silent Way with almost any audio interface. Those of us who were around at the time of the great MIDI revolution might have a device at our disposal, but for those buying into vintage analogue technology, or those keen on purchasing or building their own analogue modular system, software (initially MOTU's Volta, and now a system from Expert Sleepers) may offer an attractive and, arguably, more flexible alternative. Expert Sleepers are maintaining a database of compatible interfaces, along with user reports on the results achieved with them, so take a look at the web site to see if your interface and synth are amongst them. This is genuinely useful, musical technology for anyone with even the most humble of CV‑equipped synths — and, perhaps, an answer to the prayers of those with mighty modular systems. If there's a catch to this technology, you just read it. Expert Sleepers presents Silent Way, a suite of plug-ins designed for use as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. Subscribe to a plugin, relaunch Rack, … By instantiating a number of Voice Controller plug‑ins, assigning one as 'master' and the others to individual voice numbers, I was able to use my six‑voice Oberheim Xpander via its CV inputs. Some of the power in Silent Way may be superfluous for those with simple monosynth requirements, who may find all they need in the Voice Controller plug‑in alone, but for modular die‑hards it could be the answer to a prayer. Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. To get things started, I chose first to get the SIlent Way Voice Controller plug‑in up and running. Today, this is reflected in a second‑hand market where prices continue to amaze and dismay in equal measure, and in a burgeoning underground industry of new modular analogue synth designs. Once calibrated, the triggering and pitch response was reliable and consistent. I plan on using them from Max a lot, and just wanted to ask if Silent Way brings things to the table that would still be worthwhile. Silent Way Step LFO is a combination step sequencer and LFO generator. Voice Controller contains an amazingly flexible voltage mixing matrix, allowing combinations of pitch, velocity and the three envelopes to be mixed in varying amounts to each of the six CV outputs. Expert Sleepers Silent Way v2.4.0 VST x86.x64-CHAOS Team CHAOS | Feb 11 2014 | 5.6 MB Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. Expert Sleepers CV To MIDI Add Silent Way (4 modules) to cart Remove Silent Way from cart Purchased v1.0.0 When using an audio interface to produce your CVs that is connected via ADAT (for example, the Expert Sleepers ES-3 Lightpipe/CV Interface), and when the audio system is being run at a 'double speed' rate (typically 96kHz), the number of audio channels that can be sent down the ADAT connection is reduced from the usual 8 down to 4. Brings genuine analogue synth control right into the heart of the modern DAW. Well, Voice Controller has that covered too. The concept is disarmingly simple; generate a voltage in one 'piece' of electronics, then apply that voltage to another. Currently, only a few audio interfaces are compatible. Silent Way Voice Controller allows you to control your analog synths directly from Reason, in conjunction with a DC-coupled audio interface or an Expert Sleepers hardware module. iain Offsets and multipliers can be applied to the output voltage. currently, the only such software is the 'es-4 controller' plug-in, part of expert sleepers silent way. First the oscillator is connected and calibrated using the Silent Way Voice Controller plug-in. The voltages generated for both gate and trigger (a transient pulse related to note‑on) are variable. Although my old MIDI-CV box does allow me to pass a velocity offset voltage, it certainly doesn't allow me to create and modulate envelope voltages, so this was a truly rewarding experience! A typical application would be for triggering drum sounds, where you might have a number of different sounds mapped to different notes. It requires an additional plug-in called Silent Way AC Encoder and specially adapted cables, and we'll try it out as soon as we can! Slick and self‑contained, this has the effect of pulling a much‑loved analogue synth into the heart of your DAW, with a level of control that is usually the reserve of a virtual instrument. The potential for such technology goes well beyond connecting up a typical monosynth of yesteryear, and Expert Sleepers see their product as providing the beating heart of a powerful modular synthesis system. It is a tribute to Bob Moog's creative genius that his innovative use of 'voltage control' is so ingrained in our understanding of analogue synthesis. Expert Sleepers by Andrew Ostler from Letchworth, UK, is renowned for releasing a number of conversion modules for exchanging signals between computers and modular synths. Laptop PC with 1.8GHz Intel Pentium‑M CPU and 1GB RAM, running Windows XP SP3, and MOTU 828 MkI interface. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound - rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs, etc. Expert Sleepers has updated Silent Way, a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. While the rest of the plug‑in suite concentrates on getting CVs out of your computer, CV Input enables you bring CVs from your analogue synths into your computer. The level of control in Voice Controller is impressive. LFO is flexible enough that it can be used to create clock pulses for an old analogue drum machine, and there is even a variable 'swing' control, which many old machines lack. It features DC coupled ins/outs that can process both CV and audio signals—meaning it is compatible with CV generation software like Silent Way, Reaktor, Max/MSP, zMors, and CV Toolkit. The catch, if there is one, is that only a few audio interfaces can be pressed into service — and this may soon be a non-issue, if the forthcoming AC Encoder really works. The range of available output voltage is dependent on your audio interface. The two requirements are: The cables are a very simple job, well within the scope of anyone with basic soldering skills. Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. I found it useful to modulate the envelope voltages with velocity information. Installation on my PC was as simple as it gets, involving simply copying the Silent Way DLL files into my plug‑ins folder. At the time of writing, the plug‑ins in the Silent Way suite consist of Silent Way DC, Silent Way LFO, Silent Way Trigger, Silent Way CV Input and Silent Way Voice Controller, with more modules on the way. Take control of your brand at KVR! Since the plug‑in is stereo‑capable, the sending and receiving of a mono tracked signal may be set up with a single instance of CV Input, which I feel helps to simplify the process. The SOS offices managed to drum up a MOTU 828 interface for me to use during the course of the review, and I can report that this interface worked like a charm in this context. Moreover this plug-in has no special requirements on the audio interface, and so is not just usable by those with DC-coupled interfaces. Register for a VCV account and log in using Rack’s “Library” menu. Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. Silent Way Voice Controller is a virtual instrument plug-in designed to directly control an analogue synthesiser by generating the appropriate CV and gate signals via an appropriate audio interface. The update adds Silent Way Trigger, a plug-in for generating a gate or envelope in response to an incoming MIDI note. Silent Way for JACK/Linux. Setup and calibration tutorial for Expert Sleepers Silent Way Voice Controller in Cubase 5.5. In a fully fledged, multi‑oscillator modular system, this will be a very powerful feature. MIDI‑to‑Hz/V converters were never as easy to find as their Volt‑per‑octave cousins; I have sold on some perfectly good synths partly because their Hz/V system made them hard to integrate with the rest of my system. Expert Sleepers' Silent Way is one answer. Silent Way is compatible with the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol, meaning that it can communicate with other OSC‑friendly applications, though these remain thin on the ground as yet. The Quantizer plug-in is capable of loading the calibration data from the Voice Controller plug-in, in order to output accurately calibrated pitches. This is reminiscent of Waves' EQ cloning plug‑in. Voice Controller is the star of the show for me. It looks slicker, but is arguably less sophisticated, and lacks Silent Way's CV‑input ability. For example, it can constrain a pitch CV to exact semitone values. It can be used with the Expert Sleepers ES-2-2 module, or the Expert Sleepers disting module's ES-2 Emulation algorithm. Also, with the addition of the CV Input plug-in, it is possible to bring CVs from the synth into the computer, for recording or processing. Silent Way CV To MIDI translates CV signals (such as those produced by Silent Way CV Input, for example) into MIDI messages. The good news is that any CV latency will be identical to that for your audio, so at least they will be in sync to sample accuracy. MIDI‑to‑CV interfaces aren't exactly thick on the ground these days. But what about polyphony? Silent Way for VCV Rack is a set of modules for integrating hardware synths with Rack's virtual world. As well as the basic pitch and gate signals, the plug-in can generate three multi-stage envelope CVs which you can feed to VCAs, VCFs etc. The major limitation facing any software‑based CV generator, including Silent Way, is the ability of your audio interface to maintain a stable DC voltage at its outputs. I had great fun plugging Voice Controller's envelope CV into my Mini's VCA and VCF. It is anticipated that more plug-ins will be added to the suite in the future - watch the website for product announcements. Silent Way CV Input is perhaps the most surprising weapon in Silent Way's armoury. With the arrival of MIDI, manufacturers finally agreed on one standard for instrument interconnection, but in the new digital world it seemed our beloved voltage‑controlled synths were out in the cold. Silent Way LFO will add them. waves it generates a waveform that the user draws in the GUI. Download and install VCV Rack. From Expert Sleepers: Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesizers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesizer system. Happily, Voice Controller optionally allows any of these, and also has a retrigger on/off switch — something I wish my Minimoog had had from day one! Not only does the software offer options that owners of traditional MIDI-to-CV converters can only dream of, but Expert Sleepers' own range of Eurorack format modules offer … Re: What new products are you hoping to see new in 2021... Re: Brainworx bx_console N is on a deal today and tomor... Brainworx bx_console N is on a deal today and tomorrow.... What new products are you hoping to see new in 2021? Clever stuff — and, importantly, recordable in your DAW. Invitation to an aural masterchef maceration..anyone? Add Silent Way (4 modules) to cart Remove Silent Way from cart Purchased 1. I was able to create a VCA loopback with my Sequential Pro One and use the resulting CV tracking to control my Minimoog's filter. The only serious alternative is MOTU's Volta, which we hope to review in SOS soon. Sophisticated generation of CVs, with plenty of modulation options. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound - rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs, etc. Expert Sleepers ES-8. Once I had the basics working, I decided to bring more CVs into play. silent way is available in audiounit and vst formats for mac os x and windows. A typical application would be for triggering drum sounds, where you might have a number of different sounds mapped to different notes. 2012-09-07. by Peter M. Mahr. Just before we went to press, however, Expert Sleepers announced a solution that should work with most audio interfaces that have balanced outputs. Silent Way LFO Silent Way LFO, as its name suggests, is intended as a low frequency oscillator, performing the same functions as LFOs in any other synth e.g. of an analogue system. My own dear Moog Taurus pedals are (strangely, for Moog) of the latter variety, so it was pleasing to have this flexibility. Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. Latency becomes an issue with Silent Way technology, since the control voltages it produces are at mercy of the audio interface's drivers. I habitually like my monosynth keyboard to respond with highest-note priority, but there are times when lowest and newest are more appropriate. It consists of a suite of DAW plug‑ins designed to generate control voltages from an audio interface, basically turning its audio outputs into CV and Gate generators. Its job is to produce constant control voltage outputs, and it is actually a two‑channel plug‑in, each channel of which has independent modifiers. When the ADAT output is then decoded by a normal-speed interface (such as the ES-3 mentioned above), the channels are demultiplexed, and so you get your 4 channels of CV back again. It shares many of the features of the LFO plug-in, but rather than generating waveforms based on simple sine, triangle, etc. For the implementation of both fixed‑time and fixed‑rate portamento alone, Expert Sleepers have made it into my Christmas card list! Hi folks, I just got my expert sleepers es-8 and es-5. They will run as VST or Audio Units plug‑ins, requiring Mac OS 10.4.11 or higher, or Windows XP SP2 or later. Volta is also available only on the Mac platform. Susceptible to the same latency as a virtual instrument. I can imagine a few people brought up on the instant gratification of VST Instruments struggling at first. Sometimes this could work well, particularly if the synths in question came from the same manufacturer, but in other cases the results were not quite as expected, especially as manufacturers used different standards. By listening to the synthesiser's output signal, the plug-in is able to calibrate itself to generate the appropriate pitch CV for the incoming MIDI notes. Expert Sleepers has announced that the Windows and Mac OS X VST versions of Silent Way are now available (the Mac AU version was released a few days ago). A small graphic gives an overview of the mapping achieved; I found myself wanting to edit the mapping curve 'just to see', but this isn't possible at present, though Expert Sleepers have it on the 'soon to be released' list. Complete throwaway topic, but the TLM103 is definitely ... How to install Waves v9 plugin on macOS Catalina. By listening to the synthesiser’s output signal, the plug-in is able to calibrate itself to generate the appropriate pitch CV for the incoming MIDI notes. unlike the es-3, the es-4 requires particular software in order to generate meaningful output signals. To prevent audible clicks when faced with rapid CV changes, variable 'smoothing' can be applied to the CV outputs, creating either a slew-rate limit (reducing the speed of voltage change), or applying a low‑pass filter to the voltage output. And to kick off the reviews we’re looking at the Expert Sleepers ES-1 and ES-3 with the Silent Way suite of control plug-ins - these convert incoming MIDI into control voltage and trigger/gate format and allow for complex control of your analogue gear. It wasn't long before I had some hardware controllers assigned to DC's knobs (all of the controller numbers are detailed in the manual) and had recorded some inspired filter and sync'ed oscillator sweeps on a few tracks of my DAW. Although it may sound slightly confusing, once you understand the principles involved the application is easy enough. This is a notch or two above your typical on‑board synth LFO, allowing, as it does, a number of LFO waveforms to be freely mixed: sine, triangle, square (with pulse‑width control), sawtooth, random and noise. Within minutes of beginning to explore the possibilities I realised that I was very much mistaken. Silent Way is, in theory, capable of driving anything from a humble Roland SH101, Sequential Pro One or Korg MonoPoly to a giant Moog System 55 or home‑brewed modular dinosaur.
