Ensoniq Mirage DSK-1 Sampling Keyboard

via this auction

"The Mirage is a famous sampler with a fantastic gritty sound with tons of life to it, there are analog filters, keyboard split, and some other really powerful and unique features. Samples can be saved and loaded via floppy as well as recorded in through the 1/4" input. There is also an on board sequencer.

This DSK-1 is the last version they produced. This sale includes two of the original factory disk sets.

The condition of this keyboard is over all very good, there is some light cosmetic wear but the unit is fully functioning and sounds great. The only issue with this unit is the 7-segment display. Two of the sections are not lighting up as shown in the pictures. Typically the display is showing the parameter value or number which is typed in before editing so it isn't too difficult to keep track of where you are. On other functions like sequencing and loading it may be a little hard to keep track of where you are however."
