Expert Sleepers Silent Way Voice-Controller Plugin

Here's our follow up to the first Expert Sleepers Silent Way video.
Expert Sleepers has done an excellent job designing the Silent Way system. Now we'll take a turn with the Voice Controller plugin.
It was pretty easy to scale the Pittsburgh Oscillator, set up our envelope output and go to town! In this example we've routed the pitch CV to another output of the ES-3 module, essentially multing it to two oscillators, all with the flick of a mouse.
Next, polyphonic modular.

Leon Dewan demonstrates the Dewanatron Hymnotron at Big City Music

Here's Leon demonstrating the long awaited Dewanatron Hymnotron at our shop in Studio City, California.
The Hymnotron arrived at our shop in late January following NAMM 2012. Now it has a new home with a wonderful customer who loves it, as well he should. There is nothing that sounds like the Hymnotron! We look forward to having another one at our shop as soon as it is ready!

Expert Sleepers ES-3 eurorack module - Silent Way system

Here's our first video using the super-slick Expert Sleepers Silent Way system. In this video we are using the ES-3 module with the black acrylic front panel. Lightpipe to control voltage!

Using Ableton Live we called up our Silent Way LFO plugin. The LFO is synced to the master tempo of Live and we wrote in some automation on our Ableton clip., selecting 1/4, 1/8, 1/4. then 16th notes. The drum beat is from Live too.

In this demo we're using an RME Fireface 800, ADAT output directly into the ES-3 module. The sound is the Pittsburgh Oscillator into a Division-6 Filtaire. The Silent Way LFO is controlling the filter's cutoff frequency.
