What is an EDS file?

An EDS file is a disk image formatted for an Ensoniq SQ-80 synthesizer, a digital workstation released by Ensoniq in 1987. It contains data dumped from a floppy disk, which includes sequences and effects. SQ-80 users would use floppy disks to add sequences and effects to the synthesizer, but users dump the data from the disks to EDS files to play their sounds.

More Information

Ensoniq produced the SQ-80 from 1987 to 1989. The synthesizer followed the ESQ-1, which was Ensoniq's first synthesizer. The SQ-80 featured an improved sequencer, more sounds and instruments, and a floppy drive for sharing sound data via floppy disks.
