What is an EDA file?

An EDA file contains a copy of a disk image formatted for the Ensoniq Advanced Sampling Recorder (ASR) digital music production studio. It may store an instrument, sound bank, sequence, song, or effects dumped from a floppy disk.

More Information

Ensoniq released the ASR in 1992 and continued manufacturing it until 1998. It followed the Ensoniq EPS and Ensoniq EPS-16+ samplers and included a floppy drive.

Users could add sounds, presets, and songs to the sampler via floppy disks and share sounds with other users that they created with the ASR. While Ensoniq no longer produces the sampler, some music enthusiasts dump the data from the floppy disks and save them in the EDA format. Then, they play the EDA files or convert them to other file types with software.
