This is an external SCSI Hard Drive Emulator for an Ensoniq ASR-10, ASR-10R (rack), and ASR-88. Think of it as a Solid State Hard Drive, or SCSI Card Reader/Writer.
It uses a 8GB micro-SD Card for memory. This package includes the external enclosure with a SCSI Hard Drive Emulator Board and HD50 SCSI connector, 8GB formatted micro-SD card, a 6' HD50 to DB25 SCSI cable, external power supply, a 6' USB to micro USB cable, ASR-10 SCSI Manual. Pdf (emailed to you), and my "ASR-10 SCSI Emulator Guide".Everything you need is included! I have "configured" the Emulator Board for an ASR-10. Its set-up as 4 SCSI ID#'s with 2GB for each ID#, total of 8GB of storage.
You can re-configure it if you want, with the included USB to micro USB cable. The Emulator Board is "hot-swap", so you can change the 8GB micro-SD card without powering down the ASR-10. The SCSI Emulator Board has no moving parts like a SCSI Hard Drive, so it's completely silent and should last forever.
I use this Hard Drive Emulator with my ASR-10's and it works perfect. The SCSI Emulator Board has active termination and the SCSI ID#'s are set to ID# 0, 1, 2, and 5..
I will change the SCSI ID#'s if you want different ID#'s, let me know before the package ships. Each 2GB partition of the 8GB micro-SD card has been formatted in the Ensoniq format, OS 3.53 copied to the card, and the directories set-up. You can Boot the ASR-10 from the Emulator, load and save your samples, sequences, etc, at SCSI speed.
SCSI ID#'s; Every SCSI device in a SCSI chain must be set to a different ID#. Ensoniq's internal SCSI ID# is 3.
I set-up the SCSI ID#'s as ID# 0, 1, 2, and 5. ID# 4 is best if you use a SCSI CD-ROM drive with the ASR-10. I left SCSI ID# 6 available, in case you use a Zip drive.
The included external 5V USB power supply is the US, UK, UE, or AU wall style adapter, but will work in any country in the world. Its a switching adapter that uses 100-240V, 50-60 Hz. SCSI Cables; The SCSI connector on an ASR-10 is DB25. The SCSI connector on the Emulator is a HD50. If you are going to use the Emulator at the end on a SCSI Chain, you might need a different SCSI cable.I have several in stock and will substitute the one you need if I have it. I currently have 6 ft HD50 to HD50 SCSI cables and 2.5 ft CN50 to DB25 cables. This item is only for the ASR-10, ASR-10R, and ASR-88. I will have it available for the EPS-16 Plus and ASR-X soon. The ASR-10R in the picture is not included!
