“I’m assuming that if you are looking at this you are probably familiar with the power and perfection that ENSONIQ brought to the workstation environment. And like me, you are forever hooked on the gear.

This is a keyboard I have loved for years BUT I have grown with the times and have migrated to all software based recording and sound generation. So, I’m saying goodbye to a great piece of gear – my ENSONQ TS-12.

Let me make something perfectly clear here .. this is a used board THAT WORKS FLAWLESSLY. and always has. I have owned 6 various Ensoniq pieces over the past 25 years and this 72 weighted key model is the top of their line.

Performance problems – NONE

Appearance – Used (see pics) has its share of scuffs but no physical damage.

Keys – after all these years the felts between the keys are becoming dry. Half of these keys have a small squeak when played. IT IS NOT NOTICEABLE in studio or live play … but it bugs my wife when she’s in the room and I have my headsets on and she hears the rhythmic squeaks.” Link

“Ich verkaufe den TS12, da ich mittlerweile überwiegend Plug-in basiert arbeite. Der Zustand ist technisch einwandfrei. Optisch hat er die für das Alter üblichen Gebrauchsspuren wie kleinere Kratzer. Er ist aber alles in allem in einem guten optischen Zustand. Der TS12 kann auch gerne im Umkreis Düsseldorf angespielt und besichtigt werden.” Link

“Up for grabs today is a one-owner (bought in ’95!) Ensoniq TS-12 Performance Workstation / Synthesizer.

As you can see from the pictures it is in excellent condition, with only minor usage marks (and some from storage a while ago). Everything works 100%!! The disc drive read, writes and formats, the screen is clear & crisp (one of Ensoniq’s major selling points!) and all keys & buttons function as they should.

HyperWave sounds are amazing (like a Korg Wavestation) and the clarity of the onboard samples need to be heard to be believed! I dont think the RAM was ever expanded from 2MB to 8MB but as Ensoniq used **standard simms** upgrading is both easy and cheap!!!” Link

“This is a ’90s era Ensoniq TS-12. It’s a 76 key synth with full size weighted keys with velocity and channel aftertouch. Apart from all the technical data (which you can find here: http://www.vintagesynth.com/ensoniq/ts10_ts12.php), this synth has excellent sound, and a wide variety of piano sounds among other instruments. It is functioning 100% and is in very good cosmetic condition.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“This synthesizer has been my main composition tool since I purchased it new in 1994 and it has been carefully kept in my studio exclusively. It is in perfect working condition. It does show the typical cosmetic wear you would expect from a 17 yr old instrument, but nothing too major to note. As is the case on most other older Fatar weighted keyboards, some of the keys have a tiny squeaky sound to them but nonetheless feel and work great. The serial no. of this workstation is TS-14860. It comes complete with a brand new Medium Duty ATA case purchased 3 weeks ago for $100 here on ebay, and the following:

ATA Case
Power Cable
SW-6 Single Damper Foot Switch
Tutorial Manual (with examples provided on disk)
Musician’s Manual
Sound Manual
TSD-300 Sound Disk (contains back-up of 437 ROM & RAM Programs, 300 ROM & RAM Presets, additional Programs, demo sequences)
SSD-100 and 101 Sampled Sound disks” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Ich verkaufe einen Ensoniq TS12 , dessen Tonerzeugung unter anderem auf den legendären Transwaves und Hyperwaves basiert. Eine Besonderheit und Highlight stellt jedoch der interne Multieffektprozessor dar,
dessen Algorhitmen aus dem bekannten Ensoniq DP/4 stammen. Der edle Klangcharakter dieser Workstation
wird oft als “warm amerikanisch” bezeichnet, wobei die hervorragenden Effekte maßgeblich dazu beitragen.

Ich habe den TS-12 damals neu gekauft (Erstbesitzer) und ihn im Studio und Live eingesetzt. Hierbei hat er mich kein einziges Mal im Stich gelassen. Er ist genial einfach zu bedienen und ist ein Keyboard, dass nicht nur durch seine sehr gute Sounds ohne Ladezeiten besticht (die immer noch mithalten können) sondern auch sehr gut als MASTERKEYBOARD (z.B. viele Splitzonen, Layermöglichkeiten etc.) einzusetzen ist.

Zustätzlich zu seinen genialen Synthesizersounds können alle Sounds der ENSONIQ Library der Sampler EPS, EPS-16 Plus sowie ASR-10 direkt in den TS-12 eingelesen werden!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
