“You are bidding on 2 used Ensoniq EPS Performance Samplers. (1 works and the other works sometimes or can be used for parts.) The 2nd Ensoniq EPS Performance Sampler powers on but does nothing else but comes on like when it wants. The first Ensoniq EPS Performance Sampler like it’s sister does show signs of wear from normal use but does come on, it freezes up sometime but still makes music on it. They are sold as is. You may have them put in a repair shop to have them merged into one would be my suggestion since this is what we was going to do with them since we upgraded our recording studio. This auction includes the 2 Ensoniq EPS Performance Samplers, Power Cords some workable and non workable disc. Includes 2 OS DISC. Please refer to the manufacturers website for more information on this Ensoniq EPS Performance Sampler.” Link
” You are bidding on a used Ensoniq EPS performance sampling keyboard synthesizer. It is in working order and comes with two manuals, a foot pedal, power cable, boot-up disks and 91 disks of sounds. This keyboard was used professionally by the band The Cruxshadows and has traveled all over the world. The song “Marilyn my bitterness” was written on this synth and all of the disks of sounds, samples and songs were created and used by Chris Brantley for the band in their early days. Great synth for your music project *or* a great collectors item for a Cruxshadows fan. (There may be some hidden gems from the Cruxshadows hidden in these disks!) ” Link
” ACCESSORIES – Includes EPS 2X (installed) and EPS 4X memory Expander cartridges.
PHYSICAL CONDITION – Good. The unit shows signs of regular use; various small dings and scuffs in the exterior, as well as some sticker residue, though nothing major. Overall in decent shape.
WORKING CONDITION – The unit powers on and seems to operate just fine, though we do not have an OS disk on-hand for further testing. It is probably fine, we do not have any reason to believe otherwise. ” Link
” Vintage Keyboard for sale. It is an Ensoniq EPS Sampling Keyboard. It powers on. I don’t have any disks to test it so it is being sold as-is. With returns accepted in case you are not happy. This is old. Cosmetically it isn’t bad. It looks like one key was broken and fixed. There seems to be stuff jiggling around inside. (Maybe a coin???). The previous owner said it worked fine. I think he said Wham used this type of keyboard. ” Link
“Getting rid of my Ensoniq EPS Classic. Definitely one of the samplers that are underrated. I came across this keyboard and a few other pieces. Sadly, I have to get rid of it because I simply don’t have the space…as shown in the last picture… Another reason I don’t want to part ways with is the fact that it came with a PLETHORA of floppy disks with sounds. It is in great condition. Sounds great. Works great as it should. It also has the 2x memory expansion installed.” Link
“This is a fantastic blast-from-the-past keyboard, in perfect working order, with everything you need to start playing or sampling your own sounds straight away.
The EPS is pretty much the pinnacle of what Ensoniq achieved in the 80s, combining a superb musician-friendly interface with sampling specs that (to my mind at least!) strike the perfect balance between old-skool grit and warmth and modern high-end shimmer. (I’ve had this in the studio next to the 8-bit Mirage and a 12-bit Akai S950, and the Ensoniq just sounds superb by comparison… but it’s still got that vintage, slightly gritty, slightly crunchy vibe going on.) The interface is just great: nice clear vacuum-fluorescent display, the ability to have eight sounds in memory at once, load samples while playing – all the things a real player would want. Hence EPS, for Ensoniq Performance Sampler: these things were intended to be used on stage, so they have that dead-simple, no-nonsense immediacy to them.
It sounds amazing, and I’ve spent many happy hours sampling modern drums, keys and pad sounds into it, dropping their tuning six notes or so for an extra-crunchy feel, and then re-sampling them into my DAW. You can certainly use this to get a vintage tone to your tracks. But you can also use it just the way it was intended – as a musician’s instrument, with a very playable (though a bit clacky!) keybed, cool sounds, and not much need to look at the manual.” Link

Anvil case – PLEASE NOTE. I will be shipping in the case with packing materials, but the foam inside has been removed. If you want to use the Anvil case you can but will most likely want to install new foam. I will most likely ship the disks in another box if it all does not fit.
Please note: The output expander was attached on the top right with velcro. When I pulled it off some of the decal came with it (see photo 4). The unit has not been damaged other than cosmetically to the sticker. In general the case condition is good with a few cosmetic marks.” Link

“erkauft wird hier ein Liebhaberstück und Retro Sampler
ENSONIQ EPS – Ensoniq Performance Sampler
+ über 100 Disketten mit Sample Sounds
+ Sound Expander mit 8 Ausgängen z.B. fürs Mischpult Mixing
+ Memory Expansion
Das Gerät ist zwar etwas staubig, funktioniert aber noch tadellos. Wurde eben getestet. Wurde um 1988 gebaut und hat dementsprechend hier und da einige leichte Kratzer. Technisch aber 100% in Ordnung.
Diskettenlaufwerk / Floppy ist auch in Ordnung. Liest zumindest noch die Disketten, so wie es sein sollte: Sollte es
aber unerwartet doch mal irgendwann nicht mehr laufen, lässt es sich ganz einfach gegen ein anderes Floppy
austauschen. Standard PC Floppy Laufwerk.” Link

“Ensoniq EPS Sampler Keyboard with built in sequencer and Original Disks and Manual
The Item is in good condition and working.
I have owned this keyboard from new and it has been in a smoke free environment.
This touch sensitive keyboard is great to play and can be programmed as a sequencer. The midi makes it ideal as a MIDI keyboard and will connect up to a PC with a MIDI to USB interface cable (not supplied). Like wise PC sequencer applications can use MIDI to play the instrument, as though it is a sound module.
Sound floppy disks can still be purchased for this keyboard via the internet.
The original manual and sound disks are included in this sale. The sound disks include sounds for Orchestra, Horns, Piano and drums and so it can be used as a drum machine too.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
