A good sound that holds up today, and a joy to use. A completely professional box that is still useful. Major downfall is the slow disk I/O, but you gotta love the humour in the message "This may take a while."

A lot of them had reliability issues - I've repaired a few & even resorted to cannibalizing a two dead ones to get one working unit.

I wouldn't pay too much for one in this day and age, but it is a marvellous instrument... when working.

I'v just bought one,at last i had the opportunity to find one with the famous very RARE optical media cd rom drive with one of the third cds which were available for it. I already own an EIII,and i was realy curious about the EII which is near to be a myth now. In a few words,i do think that this beast is surely one of the best electronic instruments ever made. From the deepness of the bass to the real analog modulation in textures u will give to your work the final depht u were lookin for. The 1984's "shit" is really impressive. 26 kilos of pure high end components,yup it's true it's an old 8 bits sampler BUT it kick the ass of my akai s6k on the most important points for me with samplers: expression,depth and modulation. If u see one around u,if the thing is still well working,go for it. Btw ehehe any eII owners around ,feel free to drop me an email.......... 8 )

cheers

I have had my EII for a couple years. Still comes through when I need to obliverate a sample into a different level of fat low fidelity. I still haven't sratched the surface of this grand machine. Get one before the price skyrockets. HUM if 909s & 808's are going for more than the original price then better pick up an EII before you'll have to pay over 8k. Respect 5.1/4 memory as well as your elders........and that goes for samplers too.

You hook this up with the hard to find CDROM and 3 sound CD's and you've got it made. Coolest sampler ever. Except maybe for the fairlight. I've got two and will never part with them. Get the HD version if you can find it. Makes a great controller and is the best sounding 8-bit sampler ever (don't knock it 'til you've heard it). Reads/writes SMPTE too but the sequencer is lame by today's standards. Anyone want to trade sounds?
