Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

Memory , agreed, Eg: Another thing that bothers me is the fact that the sequencer always runs out of memory just as Im getting started! The dreaded "no room for operation" on screen. I filled the sample memory space with just 5 samples, spent hours doing so, got a nice 'kit' of atmospheric samples I...

Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

Yes,

I got the EPS6 plus.

loving it, but not the storage side, but that was the way with these early 90s machines. Floppies or SCSI.

Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

Just to be clear, Its not "too little gain " (re: the ASR10 over the EPS16+) for me at all, just my pocket.. at the moment.

Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

Thanks Hyde, Id love an ASR10 but its double the price of the EPS16 + . It seems too little gain for £350 extra (for my pocket) even though I would prefer the stereo ins & instant live processing through the DP fx. In this case the memory is the same on both the machines Ive been considering (2mb)

Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

Interesting, thanks for the ram memory details Rasputin. I wish that applied to the EPS16 plus too as thats the one Im getting for now. Im getting it for €275 =$336 , which seems like a fairly good deal for this part of the world. May take a week or three to get it, but the transaction is agreed. Th...

Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

I thought it was 32 mb , but maybe that was just the rack, ... I dont know these machines, so if you'll forgive my ignorance..& in any case thats good for me to be aware of that.

Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

Not at all off topic , quite the contrary. Thanks for all that info. I m the one that would go to the trouble of sampling twice to get the stereo sample, or run the live audio through the single input twice to get a stereo recording with the FX etc. Its all about sound for me. Workflow is important ...

Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

All I can say is... I'm very content with the EPS16+ Turbo rack and have never felt the need to upgrade to an ASR10. But I do have all the Waveboy disks, so the only thing I feel I'm possibly lacking is being able to sample in true stereo, but I've never had any compulsion to ever do that on any de...

Re: Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

ok, advice noted & that is what I would prefer Ashe37, thanks for that. Its just that I would have to get one shipped from the U.S. & that would at least double the price over the slim pickings locally ( within 150 miles) & import tax on top, probably tripling the original U.S. used market price. ed...

Ensoniq ASR10 (keyb)no SCSI or EPS16+ rack with SCSI

Hi, as per subject above. I would prefer the ASR10 but it lacks SCSI . The EPS16+ has SCSI . Are they really almost identical ? ..apart from the EPS16+ , having 8 tracks in its sequencer & the ASR10 has 16 tracks ? - the EPS16+ needing a Waveboy disc to enable using the internal fx live with externa...

Re: Prophet VS v1.2 firmware download

It would be great to have the option of free running lfos or lfos synched to key on. My VS came with the latest OS & its all I know & what Im used to & Im fine with the lfos being syncd to key press as I find that useful, but it would be really nice to have the choice. In any case thanks to the o.p....
