Ok so I know the daughter effects boards are probably a looong way out, and I’ll be honest, I have no idea what they’d even be capable of, but I’m over here reading about the ASR-10 effects and reminiscing how good they were. I’m actually considering buying a DP/4+.
Would something like a multi-effects board be possible? If so I’d love an option with a range of effects like the ASR-10. The Yamaha SU700 also has great effects. I’ve got one and it’s bonkers.
Had both an ASR and DP/4 , ended up selling the DP/4 as I was not using it this much, and rather kept the ASR partly for the sampling sound and partly for these fantastic effects indeed.
Your post got me curious, are you talking of a(n even very remote) possibility to scavenge and use ASR daughterboards in an S2400 ? That would be a killer… Although technically quite a challenge. I agree with jrakari buy a DP4 you won’t regret it. That phaser sound … Daft Punk Homework era had it all over
Well, I highly doubt there’s enough actual Ensoniq effects boards out there to make that a worthwhile endeavor. I meant Isla Instruments (or perhaps a 3rd party) that would recreate the effects in a new daughter board.
I’d imagine Mikey and the team could make some wicked sounding effects that sound similar and perhaps add even more lust-factor to this already future-classic machine.
I would recommend asking Sean Costello for licensing his DSP code. He has alot of experience and an excellent library of code. The Valhalla DSP Cards for Z-DSP which is basically a simple cheap Spin FV-1-Chip in eurorack format are excellent and his AU/VST Plugins are legendary.
I have a DP4. Does anyone know which brand of aftermarket power supply is compatible? My unit is 110V but if I’m going to swap the PS I’ll rather put a 220/30V PS to avoid the step down transformer option. My region is non 110V.
