It's All About Making Music!
Congratulations, you have an antique computer Synth keyboard digital audio workstation! And a very fine Keyboard too! From what we had previously researched, we advised against using the Keyboard's floppy drive. Why? We were informed @ that time, this was an old design and no longer available. No more! Back then, SCSI WAS to be the only logical answer which opened up many possibilities to further the life of this Technological Dinosaur. And if you had chosen a SCSI Zip drive for Media access, we recommended getting a spare. Why? Remember SyQuest? No one is immune from extinction.

Need Parts or Manuals... For a price!
Do you have the necessary Tools...
Floppy Drive problems? Replacements? S.O.L. Ensoniq EPS floppy drives adhere to the old Shugart floppy standard, which is not compatible with the new AT standard.
Use the SCSI interface, SCSI HD with a PC and special software from Giebler Enterprises. to format your SCSI HD for use with the keyboard. Or get an internal SCSI ZIP drive to gain floppy access from the keyboard!
