What is an EDE file?

An EDE file is a disk image formatted for the Ensoniq Performance Sampler (EPS), one of the original digital music production tools. It stores sound and preset data, effects, or backup files dumped from a floppy disk organized into 512-byte sectors in 160 tracks.

More Information

Ensoniq released the EPS in 1988 and continued manufacturing it until 1991. The keyboard featured a floppy drive where users could insert floppy disks to add sounds, presets, and songs to the sampler.

While the sampler is no longer in production, music enthusiasts looking to access the sounds stored on floppy disks dump the data and save them in the EDE format. They then play the EDE files or convert them to other file types with software.
