EPS-16Plus Digital Sampling Workstation

   (0 reviews)


The EPS-16 PLUS features true 16-bit linear oversampling technology with sampling rates up to 44.6 kHz. CD-quality output circuitry provides state of the art playback performance. The EPS-16 PLUS has all the on-board editing functions you'll ever need. Autolooping, volume smoothing, gain normalization, and multiple types of cross-fading provide complete control over your sampled sounds.

Synthesis Functions

Not only does the EPS-16 PLUS provide superb sampling, it is also a full function synthesizer, allowing you to reshape your sampled sounds with
complete freedom. 20 voice polyphony, multiple filters and envelopes, and a comprehensive modulation matrix gives the EPS-16 PLUS unequalled versatility.


Now combine 24-bit dynamic effects with this sampler/synthesizer and your music really comes to life. Reverb, Chorusing, Flanging, Phasing, Distortion, and Delay add immeasurably to the finished sound of your instruments and sequences. With dynamic control over these effects you can reshape your sound with any performance nuance. Only the EPS-16 PLUS has the ability to resample sounds with effects. For example: add reverb to a drum sample, sample it, then reuse the effects processor to further color your music.


The EPS-16 PLUS is more than an expressive sampling instrument, it's also a 16-track sequencing workstation with complete mixdown capabilities. You can record and edit your performances with a wealth of creative tools. Only ENSONIQ sequencers allow you to audition your changes to decide which version to keep.
