E-MU ESI 4000

Post by totor42 » Wed Feb 12, 2014 1:58 am

Hello !

Good news ! I've make working HxC with this sampler ! But there are some traps !

- Once original floppy device is removed, don't reconnect original ribbon cable in the normal way with the HxC ! Don't use keyed tab connector, pin 1 (edge color) is incorrect position ! Return the IDC connector from ribbon cable so that egde color (pin 1) matchs with HxC pin 1 marking on PCB.

- Then configure in .hfe file or directly with Hxc menu <Interface type> = PC HDD ! Not shugart !

It works well with image files made from floppy or image made from ESI sampler with format function ! :) :) :)

Hi

I am trying to do a similar thing with a emu e6400 ultra, Seems like the hookup to the drive is normal, the emu sees the floppy drive and it gets power and all that. I am sure the setup from the ESI 4000 would be largely transferable.

I changed on the HXC to work as PC HDD

I hav't had any luck making images from the emu with format.
what kind and size of images are you creating with the app that is working for you?
