    do the sound load faster?

    • FlexiDrive May 26, 2020 at 7:04 pm #

      Hello Thomas.
      Thank you for contact us.
      With FlexiDrive the sounds and files will be loaded only slightly faster, about a 10% faster.
      This is not a limitation of the FlexiDrive, is a limitation of the floppy drive controller board of the Ensoniq.
      But the sounds or files will be loaded free of read/write errors, bad sectors or any typical problem of a floppies.

      If you have any question. just let know us.

      Best Regards
      The FlexiDrive Support Team

    Hello, my name and Adrian.
    is FlexiImage software used to copy Ensoniq ASR-10, TS-12 diketes as well as MR61 o different?

    • FlexiDrive April 14, 2020 at 8:07 pm #

      Hello Adrian
      Thank you for contacting us.
      Yes. FlexiImage is used to convert all Ensoniq floppies to disk image files .ima. A disk image file .ima is like a “digital copy” of an Ensoniq floppy disk, containing all same data stored on a single .ima file. Then you can copy your Ensoniq .ima disks to a USB Flash Drive or SD Card and use it with a FlexiDriveMV floppy emulator.

      FlexiImage support the NON-DOS format from Ensoniq.
      FlexiImage is included for free with all FlexiDriveMV products.

      If you have some more questions, just contact us to info@floppyemulator.com

Any suggesion regarding this is very appriciatable. Thanks floppu emulator

    Do sounds load faster with this conversion? Could you put an 8GB SD card in there and it would allow you to scroll through say 100 files?
