Ensoniq EPS - Synthesized Loop

Published on Dec 30, 2017 100 Things I Do

"The Ensoniq EPS was the first sampler I owned. This was in the early 2000's and by this time anything less than 16 bit 32mb ram was considered unusable so I picked it up for a few hundred dollars and started to build my studio around it. Of course being the early 2000's I started lusting after a AKAI S1000 with 16 bits and 32mb of RAM :D... So the EPS was sold and Akai was purchased. I lust now after the S1000 for the looks and memories but not really anything about the sound.

I was fortune a few months ago to pick up another EPS and was surprised how much of how to work the beast I was able to remember. Not long until I was sampling again and using those magical Loop algorithms. There is something very special in what they can do. Making your sample sound a lot like a Fairlight all the way to almost totally changing the character of the sound!

Today I focus on the Synthesized Loop option! It really works strange magic across any short sample! Sorry about the light fading in and out at the start of the clip, I need to get some decent studio lights.

I'm thinking of doing a series of clips where I review...mostly verbally All the synths I have owned to date (I'm shocked how many!). If you think this would be interesting let me know in the comments and I will make a start in the new year!"
