I,ve bought my EPS16+ in 1993. I still love it. I used it on stage and with different kind of studio work. But now i have a problem, i can find my user guide and i have a system error. Called "error 32 reboot". Does anyone know what i can do about it. When i play the EPS the FX board gives a big noise through the sample. It scratch and it sucks.

So I need tips

Best regards

I have an eps with the latest proms in it.. also the latest software.. I VERY rarely get any errors.. (it's been a year or so since the last one came). ALso the year is WRONG.. it was released 1988.. also, mine is made 1988 .. by now the internals such as voltage regulators an capacitors and output amp and cabling has been a subject for my welding pen.. . anyway.. about the sounds. Let me tell you there are many things you can do with this thing and it will take a while to get to understand the sequencer fully but once there it's great.. I simply love it,, I prefer it over many computer programs..(but you really have to know it fully) the sounds are 13bit and 30khz or so.. in 20voice mode and 58khz in 12voice..BUT as a stand alone sampler you can't use anyting else than 20 or maybe 16voices.. ..With 13 bits you'll need 58khz. some say the keys are bad. but I think it's real good.. would prefer it anyday over a kurtsw2000..

if you are to buy one.. go with the full kit.. 10 outs 4xmemory and( harddrive ) and the latest proms and os .. or skip it .. you'll need it.. believe me.

I love the EPS,the sound you get from it is..warm I guess?!Better than a tinny sounding Akai.If you like choppin' your sounds up and/or programing your drum patterns this is the machine,but it hates looping.It can't quite seem to get them tight,either too quick,or way off! The main let down is the damn bugs it has,but you get used to those,well I did!

Very easy to use. Nice keyboard. 2mb is enough for what you can do with the instrument. Give it the loops and your drumkits and let it kick. Doesn´t got the punch like the S900. Separate outputs seems to be hard to get, quite expensive and not always functioning. This machine got a handfull of bugs which can be very frustrating sometimes, so backup, backup. The floppy drive is too slow for any human being. Quite noisy in the lower registers. Works well in a setup with a good audio editor, Awave (for converting wavs to eps format) and Epsdisk. So you can feed it with stereosamples (wooooow). It works pretty well but this machine feels a bit outdated.

The EPS is the easiest sampler i've ever tried. among the DSM-1, akai S-900 (and all other s-series) and the Peavey SP, this is the one i prefer. 2meg lasts if you use it smart. 10 outs is great, althougt it sometimes bugs out. why i dont know. maybe the internal OS that needs updating. the only dumb thing about the EPS is that it uses bootdisc. wanna normalise? insert disk. sample? insert disc. apart from that and som scsi bugs its my favourite choice.
