Sorry for the long listing, but there is a lot to cover. You are bidding on a fully loaded Ensoniq ASR-88 sampling synthesizer. The ASR line of advanced sampling recorders were a combination sampler/synthesizer/digital audio recorder that took the industry by storm in the mid-90’s. You can do sample splits, layers, looping and crossfading and other sampling edits easily. Once more you can edit those samples like any waveform synthesizer with envelope generators, LFO, digital filters and sweet built in signal effects. The ASR was used by noteworthy artists like Kanye West, Alchemist, Beck, Rammstein, Wu-Tang Clan, DJ Qbert and much more. This one was made in 1997, which is one of the latest in its line. As such it has the coveted “purple LCD screen” with a much better resolution than older ASR LED screens, and is able to import samples from Roland and Akai sample formats. The ASR-88 is a souped up version of the Ensoniq ASR-10 with 16MB of internal memory, a built in SCSI interface, and digital I/O connections. Best of all it has the full 88 weighed keys covering the entire piano range. It is a beast at 63lbs and almost 56″ long. This sampler is fully functional with all the buttons, keys, inputs and outputs in full working order. It has been stored indoors in a dry, smoke free environment the entire time I have owned it. Cosmetically it’s in great condition with just a few minor scratches not noticeable unless close up. It includes the most up to date OS disk (3.53) and a whole lot more. You’re not just getting the sampler. You are getting a host of accessories and tons of samples. Here’s what’s included: ASR-88 SamplerOn-Stage Pro Heavy Duty keyboard stand2 – OS v3.53 disks (the original is damaged so I made a copy)Ensoniq OS Extractor disk (in case you ever need it)ASR-88 Handbook ASR-10 Applications GuideASR-10 Musicians ManualASR-10 Essential Sound ManualSCSI CD-ROM Drive (Media Vision Reno Portable CD-ROM Player)SCSI 1GB Hard Drive (Corporate Systems Center HD)SCSI 250BM Iomega Zip DriveEight blank 250MB Iomega Zip disks135 Floppy Disk Samples17 Sample CD ROMs (well over 6000 samples!)SCSI Cables: One C50 to HD50 Two DB25 to HD50 One HD50 to HD50 Two DB25 to DB25 One C50 to DB25 Two DB25 to HD50 adapters Power Cable All of the manuals are original and in excellent condition. There is also some manuals and paperwork included for the sample discs in variable levels of quality. The SCSI hard drive has never been used, and you should have all the SCSI cables you need to chain all of the included SCSI products and then some. As for sounds you are getting 17 Sample CD’s. Some are original, but many are copies (most are copies of originals that got damaged during a move, and some are just copies passed onto me). There are also 135 floppy disks filled with samples. They are essentially choice samples from the CDs so consider them duplicates. Here is the breakdown of sounds you get: CDR-1 EPS Library Archive 603 instruments altogether – all of the original in-the-box sounds from the EPS (Ensoniq Performance Sampler), all thirteen of the SLT libraries created for the EPS, and twelve of the EPS Signature Series sets (ESS-1 through ESS-12).

Unfortunately I do not have the packing materials to ship this out. I am only offering local pick up. If you really, really want this shipped maybe we can work something out, but please be aware it’s going to be very expensive. I will have to get an estimate from a local postal carrier on how much it will cost to ship, and last time I checked was over a year ago and it was going to cost over $100 just for the keyboard alone. Good luck and happy bidding!
