Ensoniq Mirage

Keyboard

The Ensoniq Mirage is a sampler keyboard from the mid-1980s. It was used by Prince on Sign O The Times. It was also used live by Boni Boyer on the Sign O The Times tour.

It was the first affordable sampler keyboard, in comparison the Fairlight. It combined digital samples with analog subtractive synthesis (LFOs, envelopes and filters).
