Introduction

Encoders is a set of modules for VCV Rack to ease integration of the Expert Sleepers ES-5, ES-40, and associated expansion modules.

Install via the VCV Rack plug-in manager.

User Manual

ES-5 Encoder

Inputs 1-6 correspond to the 6 expansion headers of the ES-5. Connect to the output of an 8GT Encoder or 8CV Encoder.

Outputs: connect to the stereo audio channel driving the ES-5, usually channels 7/8 of an ES-3 or ES-8. Typically this means connecting to Rack's built-in Audio module, or the 16 channel version thereof by rcm.

To drive the ES-5's own outputs, use an 8GT Encoder connected to input 1 of the plug-in.

ES-4(0) Encoder

Inputs 1-5 correspond to the 5 expansion headers of the ES-4(0). Connect to the output of an 8GT Encoder or 8CV Encoder.

Outputs: connect to the stereo audio channel driving the ES-4(0), i.e. the S/PDIF output of your audio interface. Typically this means connecting to Rack's built-in Audio module, or the 16 channel version thereof by rcm.

8GT Encoder

Inputs 1-8 correspond to the 8 outputs of the physical ESX-8GT. Drive these from any gate, trigger etc. within Rack.

Output: connect to an ES-5 Encoder or ES-4(0) Encoder.

8CV Encoder

Inputs 1-8 correspond to the 8 outputs of the physical ESX-8CV. Drive these from any CV within Rack.

Output: connect to an ES-5 Encoder or ES-4(0) Encoder.
