This video is a real-time demo of using Expert Sleepers Silent Way and a modular synth, connected via the Expert Sleepers ES-3 Lightpipe/CV interface.

Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves. Instead, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs etc. of an analogue system.

In the demo video, the oscillator is connected and calibrated using the Silent Way Voice Controller plug-in. Then a simple patch is made using a VCA and an envelope generator, triggered by a gate signal from Silent Way.

Other modulation options are then explored, using another envelope from the Voice Controller, the Silent Way Step LFO plug-in, and the Silent Way LFO plug-in.

This video is a technical demo of the Expert Sleepers ES-2-2 Eurorack module, in conjunction with the Expert Sleepers Silent Way CV Input software.

The ES-2-2 takes as inputs CVs from your analogue synths/effects on 3.5mm jacks, and outputs audio signals on 1/4″ jacks which you connect to your computer’s audio interface. You then use the Silent Way CV Input plug-in to interpret the audio signal and output CVs in your DAW for recording, processing etc.

See the Expert Sleepers site for details on the module.
