Ensoniq MR Rack 64 Voice Expandable Synth

   0 reviews  -  4835 views

    The MR-Rack cuts no corners to give you great sound--with 44.1 kHz playback through hardware that measures in at an awesome 103 dB signal-to-noise level. (Four 18-bit DACs sure help with that!)Ensoniq's all-new waveform ROM has 12 meg of the best sounds you've ever heard, including bigger and better piano, strings, brass, and voices. Plus the second generation of our unique Transwaves, using digital resynthesis to give you sounds that move and transform under your control.

    Great waves become great sounds thanks to MR-Rack's all-new synth engine. Each sound is crafted with up to 16 sonic layers, creating the most realistic acoustic and the wildest synthetic sounds imaginable.Ensoniq's next-generation effects chip (ESP-2) provides 6 stereo busses for total mixing flexibility. Studio-quality reverb and chorus are always available, plus your choice from a broad selection of insert effects. And our thoughtful design lets you change the insert effect while the MR-Rack is playing, without affecting the chorus and reverb.Forget you ever heard the term "MIDI mode". Working with the MR-Rack is easy, because it's always ready to receive on 16 MIDI channels. And it's just as easy to set up splits and layers on a single channel.Ensoniq has made selecting sounds a breeze with our proven SoundFinder interface--one knob selects the sound type; the other knob picks the sound itself. And with hundreds of great sounds to pick from, you might never need to tweak

    But if you do, we made the most important sound parameters easily available for editing.The MR-Rack has 3 card slots for up to 84 meg of wave data! And we give you tons of memory for your money (three times what anyone else offers)!

    The MR-Rack is an outstanding addition to any MIDI set-up. This chapter describes how to connect the MR-Rack in some of the most popular MIDI environments. The key to setting up any MIDI system is to approach the process in an orderly, methodical manner. As each cable or wire is added, the system grows in complexity. If you have a firm grasp of what’s connected, and where, you’ll find managing your rig to be much more
    pleasant. As you add more gear—or troubleshoot—the extra care you take now will pay off in the ease with which you’ll be able to adapt your system to future needs.
