Ensoniq: ensoniq mirage dsk 1 dsk 8 service manual
There’s more to the details of Mirage sampling and programming than we’ll address here. Because all of the crucial sound information is included as software, your Mirage will never be obsolete. The diskettes are enclosed in a protective plastic carrier with an automatic shutter to protect the diskette from physical damage. Except in certain advanced sampling situations, this parameter is usually set to “1”.
Page 27 Once you have finished using the Formatting Program and wish to return to Once you have finished using the Formatting Program and wish to return to normal operation, normal operation, you can reboot the Mirage from a standard sound diskette without turning the machine off. It’s best described as a computer specially designed to reproduce and process sound.
When nothing is plugged into the Right Output, all audio will be routed to this output. It’s important to understand that any MIDI instrument can communicate with any other.
Formatted diskettes which you can create yourself using the Formatting Program that came with the Mirage have the same set-up as Ensoniq Sound Diskettes. Page 3 This process is called saving. When you want more than one wavesample to make up a wavetable, you will have to set the sampling parameters on your own, after setting this switch to ON.
SAMPLING Sampling your own sounds with the Mirage is where the fun really begins, Just about any sound can be a source of inspiration for you, since just about any sound can be recorded and processed with the Mirage.
The program not written by myself assumes the disk file you wish to write will be automatically be in drive A: Plus, the Mirage DSK features the added enhancement of stereo circuitry. Parameter 35 controls how much the balance changes with velocity, with one exception. Each Upper and Lower sound is composed of 64k of sound data – about 64, bytes of information – plus the four programs and all the individual wavesample parameters which control the tuning, keyboard range, volume, etc.
Again, these are guidelines – you can set the values of these parameters to any values you want. By itself, the hardware won’t make hardware and software. Note that any sequence in the Mirage internal sequencer memory will be erased when the new sequence is loaded from the diskette. Select This is a switching parameter that will tell the This is a switching parameter that will tell the on line input parameter Mirage what type of signal will be coming in.
I seem to recall this works! Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release. The Mirage has a great many performance features that will make.
The parameters of the Mirage are divided into two main categories-playback parameters and sampling parameters. Sliding the tab so that the window is open will protect the diskette against over-writing and erasure. Page 16 You can speed up or slow down the playback of the sequence by changing the value of parameter 87 see Selecting and Changing a Parameter. Page 39 The MIDI standard allows for a wide range of communication between instruments not to mention computers of all different makes and models.
Page 30 The basic sampling process is not much more complicated than making a good quality audio tape copy. Any Lower sound can be loaded in the Mirage along with any Upper sound. Once a sound is loaded ams with it. Also, any sound you sample will be played back through the program presently selected.

It will assume the disk to be a DD k disk. Page 29 There’s more to the details of Mirage sampling and programming than we’ll address here.
We suggest that you read the manual from front to back covers, including the. Once morage sound is loaded into the Mirage memory, any or all of the programs can be modified.
Just the reverse process! A system of sound recording where an analog sound is converted into digital Digital Sampling information and stored in computer memory or on a disk.
Following are two tables – the first for the Ensoniq ESQ-1, the DX – 7 and any other instruments which begin program numbers at 1, and the next showing the Once you’ve recorded mlrage, sequences can be saved for posterity on Ensoniq Sound Disks and Once you’ve recorded them, sequences can be saved for posterity on Ensoniq Sound Disks and Once you’ve recorded them, sequences can be saved for posterity on Ensoniq Sound Disks and your own Formatted Diskettes.
Increasing the number will increase the tempo, decreasing the number will slow down the tempo. An ever-growing library of sounds is available from Ensoniq that will keep your Mirage fresh and new for years to come.
When this information is transferred, or loaded, into the memory of the Mirage, the hardware is ready to reproduce that sound or modify it in a nearly unlimited number of ways. Sampling is an art as much as it is a science.
Using the Formatting Diskette. I am not sure. Ensoniq makes available preprogrammed sampled sounds on mini-diskettes. Page of 62 Go.
Once you have finished using the Formatting Program and wish to return to Once you have finished using the Formatting Program and wish to return to normal operation, normal operation, you can reboot the Mirage from a standard sound diskette without turning the machine off. In the Mirage, sampled sounds are given pitch control via the keyboard permitting any recorded sound to be played back as music.
To get much deeper into the sampling process, you’ll need to consult the Advanced Sampler’s Guide, available from your Ensoniq dealer. Page 45 combine them to create sound.
Suppose, for example, that you want the piano sound in the lower half, and the sax in the upper half. Because all of the crucial sound information is included as software, your Mirage will never be obsolete. Play the sound The Mirage is now sampling the sound.
