Re: Ensoniq EPS issue

You are speaking beyond my level but, having had these machines apart many times. I know that the two circuit boards in the keyboard assembly(in the earlier versions) are connected buy tiny little wires that often break at the connection. Caused me a lot of problems

Re: Best workstation for live gigs?

Portland Craigslist has a K2600($1100), M3 ($800) & a Kronos ($1400), right now. I'd love to have all of them but, Kronos at that price would be the pound for pound winner by a long way.

Re: Best workstation for live gigs?

Age has everything to do with it. Old machines tend to be a little more fragile, just because they are older. Whats your budget? I've seen Kronos used for less than $1500, locally. Roland Fantom seems to sell fairly reasonably, used. I think, If I had to go out on tour next week, I'd look for a Kron...

Re: Ensoniq EPS "disc not formatted" error

Yeah, I'll second the ribbon cable. Since you pulled the drive, replaced it, then put the old one back. It's likely the cable is bad or the contact points needed to be cleaned. Great that it's working! Such a great sampler

Re: Decent amp for a beginner?

Are you playing in the bedroom? or in a band rehearsal situation? What type of music? I have a really nice clone tube amp that rarely gets used in the house. Sounds amazing & is pretty loud from the getgo. For the house, I have a cheap little Fender Frontman 10g. It sounds pretty decent, clean. It h...

Re: Ensoniq ASR-X Sequencing Question

Sounds to me like they used the ASR10 as the computer/sequencer. They midi'd the sp1200,ASRx & Trident. It's pretty vague but, I'd guess the 909 & Rhodes were probably samples that were in the ASRX or ASR. The air has 8 channels that can run Simultaneously so, It makes a pretty decent controller/seq...

Re: Good MIDI Keyboard for Hardware?

The Ensoniq EPS16 & ASR10 samplers make good controllers & have the option of onboard sampling & sounds, effects, as well. Same with EPS Classic(no effects, though) Really depends on how you want to set up & work in your studio

Re: Long Shot. Looking for a Potentiometer ROLAND

I really hate to put non matching parts in. The knob is what makes the part match ;) Kind of joking, but somewhat serious because the exact part doesn't necessarily matter as long as the resistance and taper is the same, and so long as it will fit physically. I mean, the brand/model and the body of...

Long Shot. Looking for a Potentiometer ROLAND

Hey all! I've pulled apart my beloved Roland M160 rack mixer. It's had a long dead channel 14. I've narrowed it down to the input level Potentiometer. Seems to be a rare bird. It's a 5k mini with the following markings M5KohmsC theres also an 85 on the opposite side. 6mm D shaft about 10mm in length...
