Ensoniq SDP-1 User Manual

Post by Rasputin » Mon Apr 13, 2020 10:36 pm

A fairly rare and not so coveted keyboard which is cousin to the Ensoniq Mirage, but seems like someone somewhere might be interested in having the instructions in PDF, so here is where I will post them.

well, its not really related to the Mirage, closer related to the EPS 16 as that's the sample playback + digital filter architecture it is based on.

Please back up that assertion with a logical development timeline and documentation of which Ensoniq chip(s) make the SDP better related to the EPS16 than the Mirage.
