I recently found your website and forum as part of a search. I am pleased at what I have seen so far. I recently bought an Ensoniq TS 10 in great condition but it did not have any manuals or tutorials. I have figured out how to get some sequences going and I figured out how to get them into to a “song”. I know how to arrange the sequences as parts of song steps in order and I can play them back as sequences or as the ”song”. It runs but the sequence barres and the “song steps” never butt up seamlessly. I know this might sound basic for most of you. Still, it remains a fundamental mystery to solve before I can really pump out the scratch recordings and later final work. I also need help saving to disk and correctly loading. From the start I want to build a sound library.

I can download the manual from Internet but what I was really wanted to ask is if any one has the basic parts of getting started with sequencing explained on the TS-10 and other basic info. Later I will probably ask if you all have information about building sounds.

Thank you all in advance. Have a great weekend!!

Hi Carlos, you might not get a reply here like you would on a forum unless others like you are searching. Typically on a blog, people see the posts when they go up and only see them again when looking. You might want to try asking at the forum here, VSE, or HC. Good luck! I'd help if I had a TS10 myself.
