CF to IDE adaptor, plugged into a SCSI-to-IDE bridge.  I actually use a SCSI-to-IDE bridge with a 2GB flash drive which is about the size of three IDE connectors stacked in my Ensoniq EPS.  It works as well as can be expected, given the legendary flakyness of old SCSI samplers.

It works pretty well in my ESI4000 too.  I don't have a SCSI chip for my W30 otherwise I'd try it there.
