#14159 - 05/08/00 04:07 PM Can Asr-10 go beyond 16 megs?

Let me ask you my friends...after 5 years of purchasing hard disks, Cd-roms, Dram SIMMs, digital in/out, SCSI controler and sounds, Ensoniq tells me that I haveto buy an AKAI sampler if I want to load these magnificent but huge sounds that I hear around?
I think not. Someone has to solve this problem. I'm looking for him and I need your help. ASR-10 with 64 megs?Is it possible?
Can we use larger Simms? How? Any kind of help will be appreciated...Thanks

that would be something, asr10 with 64megs!!!
that'll probably blow other samplers away!

i've heard that it can be done. but unfortunately i don't know how. maybe you shoudl check out some of the ensoniq users page.

i replied to dnamusic's e-mail about this, but just for the record, from what i understand is that the ASR-10 cannot go beyond 16megs. It was designed/originally made in 1992, when 16 megs was a lot for a sampler. Back then RAM was simply more expensive.

If you try using different sized SIMMS then what you're supposed to use on the ASR-10, an electrical incompatibility will eventually burn out the motherboard.

i suggest you guys scroll through the Ensoniq links here at Synthzone and check out the EPS/ASR/TS mailing list. I know that i've learned a lot since subscribing to it.
