Ensoniq Mirage Dms-8 Rackmount SynthesizerEnsoniq Mirage Dms-8 Rackmount Synthesizer

The Mirage was Ensoniq’s first commercial product. Historically, the Mirage was also one of the earliest affordable sampler/sequencer workstations, originally listing under $1,700. Compared with the much more expensive Fairlight CMI and Synclavier samplers of the time, the Mirage was a bargain!The Mirage is an 8-bit sampler capable of a maximum sampling-rate of 32kHz with a limited 128Kb of RAM. The Mirage has analog filters…a true, analog VCF with low-pass filtering and keyboard tracking. In addition to that it has five-stage envelopes for the VCA and VCF and a nice LFO.
