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. 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# is set to ID# 1. I will change the SCSI ID# if you want a different ID#, let me know before the package ships.
The 8GB micro-SD card has been formatted in the Ensoniq format, OS 3.53 copied to the card, and the directories set-up. The ASR-10 can use an Ensoniq formatted 8GB card. You might see information that there's a 2GB limit, but thats incorrect. You can Boot the ASR-10 from the Emulator, load and save your samples, sequences, etc, at SCSI speed.
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 1.5 ft CN50 to HD50 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!
