EpsLin Neo v1.58 (Windows, macOS, Linux) [binaries only]

Open source disk and file management tool for Ensoniq EPS/EPS16/ASR samplers. Format floppy disks, format/create disk images, extract EFEs, store EFEs, convert between EDA/EDE and IMG, and more.

Ensoniq ASR & EPS Directory Listing Generator and Disk Extractor v0.4 (Windows & macOS)

Extract or generate text reports of instruments/effects/banks for EDA/EDA/GKH/HFE/IMG disk images. This is particularly useful for floppy emulator users to catalog their libraries.

Ensoniq SuperDisk v0.2
*for EPS16/ASR floppy emulator users only (no EPS)

Triple the amount of per disk storage on EPS16 and ASR HFEs when using HxC/FlashFloppy emulators. Less tiresome disk changing. Store an entire 2MB instrument on one EPS16 disk image, or a 5MB instrument on one ASR disk image. Put an entire ASR diskette on one EPS16 HFE. HxC/FlashFloppy is the sole requirement.

Standard 800K/1600K disk images (EDE, EDA, IMG, HFE, GKH) can be automatically repacked into SuperDisks; primarily for ASR HD to EPS16 SuperDisk conversion.

Provides EFE to SuperDisk conversion which puts all supplied EFEs onto SuperDisk. Mostly useful for repacking CDs/ISOs with smaller instruments onto SuperDisk which makes it much easier for non-SCSI folks to enjoy the plethora of material already out there. Use EnsoniqFS to extract EFEs (and optionally folders) from CD/ISO and then repack to SuperDisk.

Bonus feature: Includes the entire ASR factory bundle converted to EPS16 SuperDisk.

SuperDisk HFEs

Users who cannot (macOS) or will not run the SuperDisk utility can use these pre-made HFEs.

EDA2IMG & EDA2HFE (ASR-series only) v0.3

Automatically and quickly convert Ensoniq ASR-type EDA files directly to Omniflop type images and HxC HFE. Also effortlessly converts 1600K/HD IMG files to ASR-ready HFE files.


Automatically and quickly convert Ensoniq EPS-type EDE files directly to Omniflop type images and HxC HFE. Also effortlessly converts 800K/DD IMG files to both EPS and ASR compatible HFE files.


Automatically and quickly convert Ensoniq EPS-type GKH files directly to Omniflop raw images and HxC HFE files compatible with both EPS-series and ASR-ready units. Runs on modern PCs unlike the similarly named (and nearly forgotten) legacy DOS program.

Note: GKH format is the same as a standard raw image file except with a 58-byte header. For the desperate or masochistic, this header can also be stripped manually with a hex editor, however tedious.

EFA2IMG/EFA2HFE & EFE2IMG/EFE2HFE v0.7 (Windows and macOS)

Automatically and quickly convert EPS/ASR instrument/effects files directly to Omniflop type images and/or HxC HFE. Most useful for those unlucky souls without SCSI.

EFE2WAV v0.40 (ASR & EPS Wavesample Tool) [Windows and macOS]

Extracts all wavesamples from ASR/EPS instrument files (EFE) and saves to standard WAV format. Resulting WAVs can then be used with other samplers, or directly in a DAW. EFE2WAV preserves the root note and loop points of each wavesample.


Converts Ensoniq ASR/EPS raw (IMG) or HxC (HFE) floppy disk images to Giebler EDA/EDE format which may be required for some legacy Ensoniq programs like the classic Macintosh program EPSm by Terje Finstad.

Multiple EFE2IMG & HFE v0.7 (Windows and macOS)

Multiple EFEs placed into the same input folder will be grouped together and stored on the same Ensoniq disk image. Supports creating multiple disks at once when EFEs are placed into subfolders.

WAV2EFE v0.60 (Windows and macOS)

Converts standard WAV files to Ensoniq EFE (or INS) type instrument files for use with EPS, EPS16, ASR, and TS-series samplers and keyboards. Sample rate can be selected just like when sampling via the analog inputs on the hardware itself. Use EFE2IMG/EFE2HFE to convert EFE to floppy images, if needed.

Supports TRANSWAV and all other modulation and loop modes.
