    Ensoniq EPS16 PlusPublished on 06/16/04 at 02:08
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    The EPS16 + sampler is a 16-bit 11.16 kHz to 44.64 kHz and has 20 voice polyphony. Its base memory is 1MB and can go to 2 MB Multitimbral 8 votes. It has 2 output jack 6.35, an input sampler, headphone output. With the extension OEX6 we win 6 additional outputs. We backup to disk 3 "5. SCSI is optional. It also has a 16-track sequencer to 160,000 notes. The standard can also be used to empty your synths via sysex to save the data on disk. 8 effects standard of high quality. Many utilities exist on the PC (I do not know about Mac), but are inefficient.

    UTILIZATION

    Operation is simple and editing sounds is no problem, you can easily create loops and when you arrive there really is not a synthesis system comes to your help to solve your worries.
    The effects have many parameters equivalent to a specialized unit.

    SOUNDS

    The EPS16 + shines in the quality of its converters, a warm and transparent it all. I return to the effects that are truly amazing reverbs especially his almost comparable to a Lexicon PCM70. Another point to mention the stereo width comes out to God!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this sampler for 8 years and I always won, as Ensoniq products in general. I have tried many others and frankly it is still valid even if his memory is a little weak and floppy backup system a little cumbersome. I do not regret having bought it (used) because the sound that gives is really nice!

    So much for the sound ba Boom Bap 80'90 it's THE sound!
    Not a lot of reverb, delay, chorus, flanger ... Klassik but against the power unrivaled very high quality always on the edge of the ridge, but truly amazing!
    The MIDI clock is very good, and connectivity standard (time)
    Jack-Jack-Jack
    Standard 1 MB of RAM which is expandable to 2MB just using an additional card which is really important for my taste, much more comfortable for the sampling

    UTILIZATION

    Frankly use is very simple, many other machines are then much more complicated to use! the screen is comfortable - good visibility

    UTILIZATION

    Frankly use is very simple, many other machines are then much more complicated to use! the screen is comfortable - good visibility
    A friend showed me the most important functions and then it was gone, that to quickly roll
    Manual Question I went a few times ... Although there are French, it's not a very obvious first new ... already come within the EPS 16 and EPS 12 ...
    Truncates of the samples are very easy to do! velocity as the sampling filters are also very simple to edit!
    by issue against Indeed, very hard at the beginning to apply a purpose by instrument ... the effect is applicable to the entire sequence can mutate the effect of an instrument or subsequently (in advanced use) practice of using resampling the desired effect.

    SOUNDS

    What about the sound .... If you are looking for the big fat studio sound of U.S. 80 and 90 years in the hip-hop (the real) it is in this machine!! without the studio!
    The Groove Machine is incredible and we sample a kick is the hair on the arms s'hérisse!! incredible heat!
    The effects are sometimes a bit "too-much" but they are really good quality!
    The dynamic I find also very good! the keyboard there are also many, they are very good!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this machine for 5 years and I can not get enough! more potassium is found over most of new affinities and small defects in the machine too ... (Eg sequence) but are easily overcome! overcomes them! and it swings, it grooves, in short, it kills ...
    A friend had one and when I tried it I fell in love right away a small sample of soul filtered to bring out the low frequencies and HOP! three buttons I pressed a calibrated sound!
    I had used before as a ASR10 which is for me better than the EPS 16 + with its advanced features and more that I was as backward compatibility with the EPS 16 + then saw that in my group there had a ASR10 AND an EPS16 + I went on an EPS16 + (the price as being more inferior than ASR10 lol)
    Its uniqueness is its heat, a sound that tape in no time ...
    If it'll be I'll repeat the same choice! without hesitation!!
    Bought for € 250 at the time I find it a good investment! many are for Akai MPC course features breathtaking but its a very flat and no heat Ensoniq The little trick that is unique to these machines!
    Since I invested in an ASR-X and it is also a very good machine!

    In short, I highly recommend this machine is not very expensive but are really in the belly!

    see the general characteristics of the post from my colleague above! Otherwise, I was fortunate to have purchased the extension with 2 MB and have been up (myself at the time) wearing my SCSI disk drive having given up the ghost.
    No publisher Mac cons by a software diskette to transfer to PSE Mac via SCSI (I was at the time a PPC 8100/110).
    There is a converter for PC.

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration simple and effective.
    I am also lucky to have the French manual.

    I managed to save most of my sounds and effects (waveboys. ..) so it rolls on ZIP alone. I use the EPS as multi effect by plugging violin, guitar, voice ... This is my first sampler

    OVERALL OPINION

    Physical bought by chance without any knowledge of the machine.
    I love the simplicity and the musical side. One sample easily and after that experience!
    I was very lucky at the time but in the early 90s you could still buy this kind of machine for cheap.

    UTILIZATION

    Quality was not so great, had to take it in.

    SOUNDS

    OVERALL OPINION

    I like the Effects they are way better then the ones that come with cubase or FL. The sampler is easy but I prefer to trim and chopp on the MPC. Same with the sequncer on the MPC.

    Price paid: $416 USD

    UTILIZATION

    Very scary at first its like a whole different language but once you get it you will never forget.

    SOUNDS

    Very " grimy " if you are looking for that sound. If not stay far away.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Durability is rock solid but the computer board of the eps is a little shakey. Watch out for the heat sink you will get burned
