“Up for auction is this cool 1980s Ensoniq VFX-SD synthesizer. This synth is a follow up to the VFX and it includes a full 24 track sequencer and floppy drive. It is equipped with the ESP chip to provide 24-bit effects. This is a 32 voice polyphony synth with great sonic qualities and tons of editing capabilities.” Link
“This is a vintage keyboard and it works well and plays fine. Internal memory sounds are on board and no other cartridge is included. The screen reads internal battery is low upon powering on. They are available on eBay for about $15. Sound cartridges are also available to fully load this keyboard. It does not have a disk drive but that does not affect functionality nor is it necessary to utilize a sound cartridge. Own a piece of ensoniq history today. ” Link
“This is a vintage Ensoniq VFX vintage 61 semi weighted key synthesizer . Works well all keys sliders knobs functioning properly . Had an battery socket installed internally so that the storage battery can be changed easily . New battery installed as well. Great synth . Easy to program and manipulate . Keyboard has great feel . Very solid and well made . The colors are slightly faded from age but It is still a cool looking synth! Grads kinds great too!” Link
“Up for auction is an Ensoniq VFX SD synth. This is an early workstation type synth from 1989 with lots of character. This particular VFX SD is in good shape. It’s had the hardwire keyboard modification done so there is no risk of the “keyboard calibration error” issue that these synths are prone to. At some point in its life it had the “VFX SD” logo repainted, so note that the V doesn’t have the usual inverted blue triangle. Wasn’t me.” Link
“Scratches on side panels but nothing major. Typical wear for a 24-year old instrument” Link
“VINTAGE ENSONIQ VFXSD SYNTHESIZER. Found among contents of an old estate I recently acquired. Unit powers up and seems to respond to buttons on the control area but I could not get the piano to produce any sound. There is a VPC Sound Cartridge and floppy disk. I did not attempt anything further. If there is something I can try please let me know. One lever is missing from the slide on the upper left portion above floppy. There is some wear to the casing that you can see in the photos. ” Link
” I bought the synth at an auction a few years ago.
The only things I see or hear wrong with it are the remains the auction sticker, which you can see in the photos, and the very common battery error, which you can also see in the photos.
It sounded great and worked well the last time I used it, other than the battery issue.
The synth is the only item you’ll receive. You’ll need to obtain an IEC power cord, which is the same kind of cable you usually use with desktop or server computers.” Link
“THIS IS A NON WORKING VFX-SD GOOD FOR REPAIR OR GOOD FOR PARTS. GOT THIS KEYBOARD FROM A FRIEND. NEVER GOT AROUND TO REPAIRING THE BOARD BECAUSE OF MY KIDNEY DISEASE. SCREEN LIGHTS UP BUT FAINT WITH SYMBOLS ACROSS THE SCREEN. DISK DRIVE DOESN`T WORK. ” Link
“I know absolutly nothing about this keyboard. It might work and it might not. It turns on and buttons seem to work but I get no audio out. So I am listing it for parts to someone who repairs them. It didn’t smoke when I pluged it in and that is a good sign. It doesn’t look like anyone has been inside stomping around so I believe it is a complete keyboard that needs software or perhaps some repair. I just do not know this keyboard or anything about it’s history except that it came from Long Island NY to me. Good luck to you. If you buy it, don’t come bitching to me about it because I guarantee it to arrive and that’s about it. I will pack it well for the intended trip.” Link

“When plugged in, display reads low battery. Was going to replace, but it appears that the battery cover has been riveted shut. I didn’t have any external speakers to plug into this, so I just took it to local music store and had them test it out-seems to function as it should.” Link

“This is a Vintage Esoniq VFX Synthesizer, the sounds it makes are great. All the sounds from 0 – 9, each has 6 different sounds all work great, this is all I know how to work. All the keys work fine.” Link
“This synth plays as-is however is missing 3 shafts that enable a sound bank. Each bank has 6 sounds so a total of 18 sounds cannot be opened. It can cycle through 7 other banks with 6 sounds available. There’s still 42 different sound options. It’s a pretty basic fix if you have the time. Other than that this synth is in good condition and comes with a carrying case. ” Link

Also wenn was selten verkauft wird, dann ein VFX von Ensoniq. Zum einen liegt das an den klasse Sounds, zum anderen daran, dass Keyboarder so kniggerich sind, und dem Geld nacheulen, dass sie eventuell bei eine schlechten Auktion verlieren.
Soviel vorweg, jetzt aber:
Der VFX wird mit Koffer verkauft (was das Porto in die Höhe treibt (23kg), euch aber ein perfekt geschütztes Instrument beschert).
Der Synthie funktioniert tadellos, lediglich der Bank-Umschalter #5 klemmt. (Rote Makierung). Über Midi läuft alles perfekt!
Da die Interne Batterie aus dem letzten Loch pfeift, würde ich einen Batteriewechsel empfehlen. Eine Batterie kostet ca.10 Euro.
Ihr seht aber an den Bildern, dass die Sounds angewählt (und gespielt) werden können.
Eine Ensoniq Sound Cartridge VPC 101 gibt´s auch noch dazu. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Up for auction is a vintage Esoniq VFX synthesizer. The unit is in great cosmetic/working order. The synth comes with original instruction booklet & cartridges. The booklet has writing on the cover and inside. The inside writing is mostly highlighter and the whole book is still easily readable. The cartridges are numbered: VPC 100, VPC 101 & VPC 104. I have tried all cartridges and all work well. Cartidges 100 & 101 have taped labels. The unit has some very minute scrapes to one side, you have to look close to see. There are also some larger scrapes on the under side, but you will never see them. Other than that, it looks great! I would rate it a 9.5 out of 10! The unit powers on and all functions/outputs work fine. The only thing I could not test is the foot pedal, simply because I do not have one. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Vintage Ensoniq VFX SD Synth. Great way to get the ensoniq sound on a budget. This is a very powerful wavetable synth under the hood. A real programmers synth. Similar in many ways to a PPG. The one weakness is the filter is pretty tame, but if you run your signal chain through a good analog filter this thing is insane. Great for strings and pads. Battery works. This synth functions well. Keybed has been modded to fix the common connection issue between boards that plagues most VFXs. one of the few synths with polyphonic aftertouch.” Auction ended.
