Re: Vintage synths, are they really worth it?

Can you afford them for the value of collecting? There are some special machines out there. That do one special thing. If it's your bread & butter, sure. it's worth it on all accounts. I've been mechanically engaged, my whole life. Whether it's cars, bicycles, guitars etc etc. The point i'm coming t...

Re: Ensoniq EPS-16+ SCSI issue

I understand. Electronics can be daunting. I take on fix it projects , every once in a while. Sometimes I can figure it out. I wish I could find an internship to learn more. Online advise is great, but usually way over my head. Would be great to have someone to point & explain.

Re: Ensoniq EPS-16+ SCSI issue

Re: Ensoniq EPS-16+ SCSI issue

I've modded both my cards with just a wire, no diode(EPS16 & EPS6 rack). Both work fine with the original Zip Drive. The updated drives may not work, from what I remember. There are some aftermarket SCSI cards out there with the upgrade. The ZipDrive came out about the same time as the ASR10. The AS...

I have an ESI2000 but, have not really used it much. Did they offer any good sounds for it?

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
