RAM & WAVE EXPANSION
Translation from German to English
The RAM & WAVE EXPANSION
consist of two building groups. These can be used individually or together.
The one building group is the WAVE EXPANSION. This building group extends
the Waves of the ESQ1 by 32 new waveform-shaping. The other building group
is those RAM EXPANSION.
The RAM EXPANSION is not simply only an internal memory expansion on 8 banks
with altogether 320 storage locations for its sounds, but intelligent
steering contents with its own Microcomputer on the plate. This
Microcomputer can process instructions over Midi, provides automatically for
it that the suitable waveform-shaping is selected and supervises besides
still all keys of the ESQ1.
It is to be consistently continued by this technology us possible become the
prompting of the ESQ1 with some new selection menus. The RAM & WAVE
EXPANSION are problem-free to handle and simply serve.
This operating instructions apply to the RAM EXPANSION and the WAVE
EXPANSION. In the last chapters we deal then with the combination of the two
building groups and the associated advantages for the user.
The WAVE EXPANSION puts a sentence with 32 new waveform-shaping to them at
the disposal. These were won from different 16bit-HQ-Samples by Fouriere
analysis, digital filtering and following Resynthese.
The old and new waveform-shaping cannot be mixed with one another, since
either the new waveform-shaping or the old waveform-shaping is switched on
always. But never both at the same time.
The change-over between old and new waveform-shaping is done via PA- Decoder
RAM or ROM cartridge. With that BANK 1/2 change over switch also the
waveform-shaping are switched. The switch at the cartridge is available on
bank 1 in such a way stands for them the old waveform-shaping for its
sounds. The switch stands on bank 2 like that is eingeshaltet the new
Importantly: The sounds in bank 1 of the cartridge always use the old, those
on bank 2 the new waveform-shaping. The sounds in internal use those
waveform-shaping by the switch at the cartridge were selected. They can
during it a sound from internal play the waveform-shaping with the switch at
the cartridge to switch. As a result of it quite interesting new sound
combinations partly arise.
If an EXPANSION to use the change-over sees you to RAM & WAVE somewhat
differently from word however in the chapter RAM & WAVE EXPANSION in detail
described. Importantly: If you use cartridges of another manufacturer, then
are always the old waveform-shaping switched on. The names Wave 1 to Wave 32
got the new waveform-shaping. This happened not from Einfaltslosigkeit to
remain compatible but over when new wave shape corroding.
If no WAVE EXPANSION is inserted in the ESQ1, then first the ESQ1 with its
normal power-up message announces itself after that switches on. After
approx. then the RAM EXPANSION announces itself 2 seconds with the message.
** PA – DECODER ** RAM EXPANSION V xx
Press they any key now. In the display the ESQ1 appears Midi menu. The RAM
EXPANSION initialize the midi channel of the ESQ1 so that this with the midi
channel adjusted on the RAM EXPANSION board agrees. Because it makes little
sense if the ESQ1 on another midi channel than the RAM EXPANSION works.
If the channel is adjusted then selects those RAM EXPANSION still the first
sound in internal the 1 and hands control over of the display re to the
ESQ1. From now on those waits RAM EXPANSION in the background to it again
with it to do to have would like. (naturally it waits besides still the data
you over Midi not simply only but supervised arrives and evaluates these).
Over into the main menue the RAM EXPANSION to arrive you press grope
Internal and hold these pressed then press them the V key. On the display
BANK 1 2 3 4 MIDI
SELECT 5 6 7 8 CHANGE
The active memory bank is underlined.
Around another memory bank to select they press the associated grope.
Briefly after that it gropes the menu will automatically leave.
If they do not select a bank, separate press the key over MIDI appears in
such a way on the display:
MIDI CHANNEL 01 . EXIT
With. and - they can change the active midi channel. Use they for it please
only this menu and no more the ESQ1 midi menu. Since in the ESQ1 midi menu
only the channel of the ESQ1 and the channel for the RAM EXPANSION is not at
the same time changed.
Importantly: The new channel is not stored. For a durable change the channel
must be adjusted on the RAM expansion board.
With EXIT you leave the menu.
If they the key under MONITOR press in such a way appear in the display:
MIDI-MONITOR RELEASE xx
The midi monitor partly indicates detailed midi data to them in the plain
language. The parameters (up to the channel) are represented in Hex numbers.
So meant e.g. NOTE ON *12 23 34
on Midikanal 12 an note on instruction for gropes 23h (35 decimally) with a
Velocity from 34h (52 decimally) received.
Around the data set which can be indicated to reduce only data will arrive
on the adjusted Midi channel indicated. Want they another channel to observe
to press in such a way you any key at the display. They are now again in the
Midi menu and can adjust another channel here. Afterwards they press again
the key over MONITOR and can the channel observe.
Importantly: Out the clarity active sense messages bases is not indicated.
PS: Around itself in the Midi topic and the hex number system to train they
fall back please to special literature. Some interesting information can
take you also out of the Midi implementations of various Midi devices
(usually completely in the back in the operating instructions). With a
CONTROLLER 0-Message you can switch another memory bank on over Midi.
Directly after it you should select program a CHANGE message sound from this
memory bank with.

RAM & WAVE EXPANSION
The combination of RAM EXPANSION and WAVE EXPANSION represents the most
elegant solution, in order to steer and supervise the wave shape
change-over. After that switch on appears in the display.
** PA_DECODER **
RAM & WAVE EXPANSION V xx
In the Internal the memory banks 1-4 the old waveform-shaping is assigned.
The new waveform-shaping is to them on the banks 5-8 at the disposal.
All user inputs been supervising and if necessary will become those
waveform-shaping switched. In this program section are most developping
costs, thus a simple and safe operation could be carried out for the user.
Importantly: That copy from sounds into a storage area, another sentence
waveform-shaping is assigned to which, will sounded the sound to change.
The old waveform-shaping are assigned:
Internal Bank 1
Internal Bank 2
Internal Bank 3
Internal Bank 4
Cartridge Bank 1
The new waveform-shaping are assigned:
Internal Bank 5
Internal Bank 6
Internal Bank 7
Internal Bank 8
Cartridge Bank 2
Within these two groups they can copy without the sound to change.
Initialization of the
RAM after the installation.
After the installation, or if the memory were separate from the backing UP
battery, the 8 memory banks must be initialized. For this its own routine in
the RAM EXPANSION was installed. This provides for it that successively all
eight memory banks with meaningful data to be filled.
The initialization released by it before that to switch on the ESQ1 the
Write key to press and pressed up to the display

Then they leave write grope loosely. It appears on the display:
ERASE ALL MEMORY ??? *YES*
Press they grope over YES the whole memory are in such a way initialized.
This procedure takes approx. 1 minute.
