Ensoniq Mirage DMS-8 - Vintage Sampler - Restored w/Gotek Drive

via this auction

"You already know why you're here! You've read all the reviews on VS and MatrixSynth, and know what this is ☺️ It's an early 1980s 8-bit sampler with velocity-sensitive keyboard, proper CEM 3328 analog filters, and up to 33KHz sample rate. Gritty - yes! And surprisingly tweakable, even with its simple 2-digit display.

Ok - this instrument;

Floppy drive replaced with a brand-new Gotek drive with OLED display. Worth about $110 on its own
Comes with disk images for OS 3.2, MASOS, FORMAT
Extensive library on pre-loaded flash. I'm not sure what on there, but there's a lot!
Professionally repaired; replaced sockets with turned-pin type, replaced faulty J-FET op-amps
Power supply rebuilt and tested
Original floppy drive can be bundled with it - just ask
Top has a few scratches - see photos. Also, no rack ears! And as always, this is not sold 'as-is', and we stand over everything we sell here!"
