Question about ceramic cap values

Also, I don't know how to read value of the caps, from the schematics of a dbx 163X:

They are probably marked with some variant of an OEM part number, but the value and voltage can be verified from the schematic by where it is used.

10SE1 = 10uF electrolytic or tantalum, 25V or more.
1M50E1 = 1uF, 50V electrolytic or tantalum.
470M35E = 470uF, 35V, electrolytic.
.1MD3 = 0.1uF, 50V or more, ceramic

The 10NPSE1 would be 10uF non-polar, probably 25V or more. To know if it's tantalum or not, look at the PC board.
