Save 10% on Expert Sleepers with Pittsburgh Modular

We’re happy to announce a special offer in conjunction with Pittsburgh Modular to celebrate the release of their all-in-one modular ‘Foundation’ synth.


The Foundation is a fully modular, eurorack, analog synthesizer. A patchable system styled after the great monosynths of the past with no hardwired signal path or fixed voice architecture to restrict creativity. Driven by two wide range analog oscillators the Foundation produces a huge, warm sound that can't be matched by digital or VST synths. All of the elements of a classic voltage controlled synthesizer are available as an open, patchable, modern synth.


Each Foundation sold will include a coupon for 10% off all Expert Sleepers software, subject to Silent Way being included in the purchase.

Silent Way makes an excellent companion to the Foundation to provide everything from simple CV/gates for sequencing to complex LFOs to expand the range of modulations possible with this synth. To take things to their logical conclusion, swap out the Foundation’s MIDI/CV module with an Expert Sleepers ES-3 or ES-4 to provide even more control options.

Special offers reminder

Just a reminder that we have two special offers still running:

* Silent Way testers' bounty
* Little Spacey for $5

Bounty offered for Silent Way testers

Since there are far more audio interfaces and synth modules in the world than any one person or even company is ever likely to own, it seems unlikely that Expert Sleepers will personally be able to test every combination.

Therefore we're offering a bounty for people who buy and use Silent Way with their setup and document the results. To qualify, you need to do the following:
* buy Silent Way (you don't qualify if you use the demo version to do the below).
* send us the details of your system (computer, host application, audio interface, synth modules).
* put up a video on YouTube demonstrating that Silent Way works with your stuff.

The offer is:
* a coupon for $25, good for one purchase from the Expert Sleepers store, if you do the above, or
* a coupon for $50, good for one purchase from the Expert Sleepers store, if you do the above and you're the first to document the successful use of Silent Way with a particular audio interface or synth module.

This offer will run for a limited time only, so get testing!

Special offer - Little Spacey for $5

As previously mentioned, Expert Sleepers has close ties with the band Darkroom.

We find ourselves with more inventory than we'd like of the last album, Some Of These Numbers Mean Something, so we're presenting this special offer: buy the CD (currently about $15 including shipping) and get Little Spacey for $5 (usual price $29).

So that gives you the plug-in at about 33% off, plus you have a CD which you can enjoy/give away/sell on eBay.

Here's exactly how it works:
* Buy the CD from Burning Shed, from this page.
* Send your name and email address, as used on your Burning Shed order, to littlespaceyoffer@expertsleepers.co.uk. Simply forwarding the order confirmation you get from Burning Shed should suffice.
* Once we've confirmed your details, we'll send you a coupon code. You then use this code when buying Little Spacey to get the discount.

Sending your coupon should typically happen on the same working day that we get your mail, but please bear in mind that we're in the UK (and so for example about 8 hours ahead of the west coast of the USA).

The discount on Little Spacey applies once per purchase of the CD. If you already own the CD, you need to buy it again to qualify for the offer. Give the spare to a friend, or something.

This offer may be withdrawn at any time, so take advantage of it now!

Special CD Offer

The band Darkroom is closely affiliated with Expert Sleepers, and they recently released a new album, "Some Of These Numbers Mean Something".

We're offering all Expert Sleepers users (past, present and near future) the opportunity to buy the CD at the massively discounted price of £4.99 (UK & EU)/£5.99 (rest of the world), including p&p. Those prices are UK pounds - the once-again strong dollar makes this particularly cheap for our USA-based customers.

Read more about the band and the album at the Darkroom site: www.darkroomtheband.net

If you'd like to pay full price for the album (which of course would be fantastic for all concerned), go here or buy from your download retailer of choice (e.g. iTunes).

To take advantage of this limited-time offer, send payment via PayPal to payments@expert-sleepers.co.uk, including enough information for us to validate you as an Expert Sleepers customer (i.e. your serial number, order number, or the email address you used when purchasing) and of course your mailing address.
