CV to ADAT Lightpipe interface for ES-3 (ADC)

The ES-6 is the counterpart to the ES-3 (which is Lightpipe to CV Interface), offering up to 8 channels of CV input with output via an optical lightpipe connection. As with the ES-3, the ES-6 also works well for audio signals, with conversion quality on a par with a regular audio interface (see here or here).

The ES-6 itself has 6 input sockets; the remaining 2 channels are provided by an expansion module e.g. the ES-7.

Please note that a connected ES-3 is required (or ES-8) for operation. The ES-6 gets its clock signals from the ES-3, which derives them from its lightpipe input.

  • Analogue inputs: 6x 3.5mm jacks, DC-coupled
  • Digital output: optical, ADAT Lightpipe standard
  • A/D conversion: 24 bit, 103dB SNR typical
  • Sync input: connection from ES-3 module
  • Input voltage range: ±10V
  • Input impedance: 100k
  • Expansion: ES-7 (adds two CV inputs for a total of 8)

Discontinued in favour of the ES-6 mk3.
