Ensoniq

Ensoniq Corp. was an American electronics manufacturer founded in 1982, best known throughout the mid-1980s and 1990s for its musical instruments, principally samplers and synthesizers. Ensoniq’s DP series of effects rack-mount units offered parallel processing and reverb presets on a par with the likes of Lexicon, but at affordable prices. Today, the Ensoniq DP/4 processor is very well regarded for it’s great effects and innovative approach to multi-effects processing and as such they command high prices. In January of 1998, Ensoniq Corporation was sold to Creative Technologies Ltd for a cool US$77 million. This acquisition virtually ended the run of innovative products coming out of the Ensoniq brand at it eventually died a slow death.

Ensoniq DP Pro Effects Processor

The Ensoniq DP Pro released in 1997, was the final effects processor to come out of Ensoniq. It came after the success of the DP/4, DP/4+ and DP/2 processors. Unlike the DP/4 & DP/4+, the Ensoniq DP Pro was a stereo effects processor. Sadly two channels of processing was not all it lost, it also lost the more intuitive interface of the DP/4 series of processors.

Ensoniq DP/2 Parallel Effects Processor

The Ensoniq DP/2 is equally at home in a professional recording studio, home studio, guitar rig, MIDI setup, or PA system. The Ensoniq DP/2 creates 24-bit digital effects using two independent processors, and features two independent inputs and outputs with full internal mixing capabilities and discrete stereo processing.

Ensoniq DP/4+ Parallel Effects Processor

Following on from the huge success Ensoniq enjoyed with the DP/4, the Ensoniq DP/4+ took a successful recipe and added subtle updates to the interface. The Ensoniq DP/4+ creates 24-bit digital effects using four independent processors, and features four independent inputs and outputs with full internal mixing capabilities.

Ensoniq DP/4 Parallel Effects Processor

Ensoniq were a keyboard manufacturer back in the 1980s, but their legacy seems destined to be their first multi-effect processor, the Ensoniq DP/4. Using their experience from keyboards and samplers, Ensoniq developed their first effects processor in 1992 towards the end of their keyboard era, and to this day, the Ensoniq DP/4 is still sought being after.
