ES-4, ES-3, gate expanders personal cheat sheet (Ableton)

Post by tom moody »

I made this setup guide for running ES-4, ES-3, and related gate expanders using Ableton. Partly it was a learning process, but also, if I don't use this gear for a while, I forget everything. I'm sure there are things in here that are "non-standard" but it works for me and others might find it useful. If not, don't use it! Corrections or suggestions are welcome.

I'm continuing to add to my personal Expert Sleepers cheat sheet:

I've made many tweaks and added a new section on the ESX-8MD expansion modules (used in conjunction with the ES-40).
These notes are for ES on Windows 7/Ableton Live 9.5 -- probably a doomed quest as Windows and Ableton continue to "upgrade." Nevertheless, it helps me to keep it all straight.
It's also a struggle because I'm gradually moving from Ableton to Tracktion Waveform 9 and will have to relearn all this for Waveform.
And even worse, I'm also moving more production to Linux, where almost none of this will apply!

Glad to hear it. Eventually I will finish the section on "ES-40 module with ESX-8CV, ESX-8GT, and ESX-8MD modules" but there are still things about that setup I don't understand.
