Sample Disks

Oberheim DPX-1 Factory Bundled Diskettes

The DPX-1 can also load Akai S900, Emu Emulator II, Ensoniq Mirage, and SCI Prophet 2000/2002/2002+ diskettes.

When using a floppy emulator with the DPX-1, it is recommended to use HFE format for all disk types, although S900 disks can remain in IMG format, if the emulator is properly configured.

Note: While the DPX-1 can load native 5 1/4″ Emulator II diskettes, there are multiple situations where it may be advantageous to use EII diskettes which have already been converted to DPX-1 format.

– DPX format disks will load more quickly.
– Physical EII 5 1/4″ diskettes are very difficult to create from EII files.
– When using a floppy emulator, native EII disk images cannot be loaded from an emulator in the DPX-1 3.5″ bay.

As such, DPX-specific versions of the EII libraries are offered as premium content below.
