New E-MU Command Station Announced
PX-7 Commanding innit?

E-MU Systems were showing a pre-production version of the PX-7 at the March Musik Messe show and now it’s official, there is to be a new E-MU PX-7 Command Station, a drum machine that features a powerful sequencer and 128-voice synthesizer. The PX-7 features a multitrack, pattern-based sequencer with real-time, grid and step recording capabilities, 13 velocity sensitive pads, 32 MB of meticulously sampled brand-new acoustic and electric drum and percussion sounds, three additional ROM expansion slots, a digital output, new Version 2.0 software, and a host of performance knobs, buttons and switches. The PX-7 is now shipping and has a U.K. retail price of £699 inc. VAT and $995 US. Expect street prices to be somewhat lower. What they say:
Performing, sequencing and editing are central to the PX-7, providing numerous functions that allow advanced interaction with sequences and sounds. The PX-7 has been designed to be a full-blown MIDI controller, and can be used to control other MIDI gear in addition to its internal sounds. For example, each controller knob can be assigned to its own MIDI channel and controller number, allowing you to customize the way you interact with all of your gear, and all of the PX–7’s controller setups can be stored into multiple multi-setups. “The new drum sounds in the PX-7 are as good as it gets – but they’re only half the story” states Sean Wilhelmsen, product manager for the PX-7. “It’s the combination of the PX-7’s powerful synthesis architecture and the way that all your sound and sequence parameters are always at your fingertips that makes the PX-7 such a unique creation tool.” The PX-7 also has 13 velocity sensitive pads, a touch strip, 16 programmable and quick-edit knobs, direct jump keys, sequencer transport, two displays and trigger keys.
