The ES25 is a versatile manual controller allowing the performer to generate up to 8 separate voltage presets and gate pulses. The ES25 can be used to change the settings of other modules through voltage control, altering the characteristics of a sound patch and routing/switching events in live performance or in the studio.
In addition to the 8 individual 'pad' outputs, there is also a 'common' output for both the [CV] and the [GATE]. This [CV] output will output the highest voltage of all active pads.
The ES25 is controlled using the ES34 TouchPad . This is a touch-sensitive keypad that connects to the ES25 via an umbilical cable giving the user the freedom to position the keypad unit in a comfortable position.
Note that the ES25 can only provide [GATE] signals and [CV] voltages responding to pressure being applied to the pads of the ES34. There are no musically pitched voltages generated.
See the ES35 Touch Controller for an integrated version.
