Nicy nice sampler. Easy to control, often very cheap, 12 db filters, arpeggio

and a few other niceties. No midi thru.. My unit's got some kind of scsi-like-

interface, tho it's not, says E-mu. Some strange old IDE they said. Something to think about as a beginner... My Emu2 seemed to give me some vibrato

on the clean sounds (cymbals, etc) and the shit is that the bugger gives a full

LFO-value when the samples are stored (or something). Easy to take away tho. Made in 1984 (says the manual) and still going strong. Some problems that may

arise is: connectorprobbs between the discdrive and the real mutha.. Clean 'em

and get goin.. Chearz!

I've only had mine for a short while, but I remember when it came out and drooling over it. Now that they are extremely reasonable to get ($200-300)I picked one up and love it. It does what it says and it does it very well. It's limited in the number of voices (8) but if you look around you can find used Oberheim DPX-1 Sample playback madules which will read the disks form the E2. This will give you another 8 voices to play with. I like the fact that even though it is only 8 bit it sound F*CKING RAD! When I got mine I ended up gettting 2 for the price of one. The second was given to me for free becasue it has this wiered problem, that the sample playback backwards(?) or at least sound like that. Also the OS freezes up occasionally. If anyone knows what can cause this please e-mail me. If you're sugestion fixes the probelm I will pay you.

The EMULATOR II will be considered someday a "classic". A fantastic sampler that can boost and reconfigure any sound or sample dumped into it. One of the most distinctive sounding samplers around and I'll keep it running as long as possible. Has anyone ever seen a keyboard case as indestructive as the EII's? Here's to when keyboards were made to last a lifetime!
