If you know, you know.... This is the rare "unicorn" of sampling keyboards due to it's aftertouch weighted keys - nothing like it! And of course made famous from all the early RZA / Wu-Tang production. This thing is a beast! I'm only letting go of this because it's my back up, and I want to make a new album with the sale proceeds. Stored in a smoke-free home, and lovingly kept indoors for maximum protection from the elements so given it's 1988 creation, it's in very good shape.

Asking price, or best offer, but please no low blows. Cash preferred, Venmo, Paypal or check with proper state ID (and it clears before the exchange).

Features:
Aftertouch, Built-in Effects, Display Screen, Modulation Wheel, Pitch Wheel, Sampling, Sequencer, Software Included, Transport Controls, Thumb drive update for recording & storage!


The Ensoniq EPS has the following specifications:

Keyboard: 61 keys with velocity and aftertouch
Bit Depth: 13
Max Sample Rate: 52 kHz
4x SCSI interface with 25 pin D connector, this is for a script hard drive for super fast loading and saving samples.

Output expander port
Mini in
Midi out

fully functional. Has OS disk plus standard sounds plus other sounds needs power any standard computer or keyboard power chord.

Here's the exciting part - the service updates from 2022, and the floppy drive replaced with USB storage:
- Floppy drive replaced with floppy emulator and bootable USB storage
- Power supply reconditioned (electrolytic capacitors replaced at or above spec)
- front panel switch ('System') replaced
- broken plastic mounts for top cover, floppy / wheel panel, and keyboard posts repaired
- missing screw on power supply replaced
- preventative deoxidization of front panel connectors
- interior / exterior cleaning

Date of Completion: 4/23/22 (been in safe storage since)

The only main exterior damage is a key was broken long ago, but glue with plastic sensitive adhesive and works fine beyond the visual presentation (see photo).

Please feel free to email, text, or call anytime 5(zero)3 - 75(zero) - 6415
