The best sampler in the world!!

Remember: it's quality (of sound) NOT quantity (fx, ram, polyphony)

The only other sampler that comes close is the Prophet 3000.

The EIII will always remain a classic, especially as we are beginning to see more and more samplers out there in the world today...

Not the best sampler, but I would have to say the best for the money you can buy at todays prices, I like the Farilight IIX and Synclavier but there top dollar synth engines. Those filters on the E_III still smoke. If anyone has samples on 88meg or cd I'd be interested in swaping or buying. Also if there's anyone with a dynacord add-one, memory- moog, or ppg 2.2 or 2.3 for sale email me.

I recently bought a rack version that seemed to be a little beat up. Bought it for 200.00. with a 30 day warrenty. This thing kicks AZZZZ! So warm and in stereo! I stll love my DSS-1's and Akais. Side of the Roland. I sampled some of my DX drum beats and 303 patterns into this thing and it sounded so good. Almost like the real thing. I compared them in hearing tests. So I took the beast in my rack and performed on stage with a JD-800, Prophecy, DSS-1 and MOOG Opus. And some novice asked me where my drum machines were. I pointed to the E3 and he offered me $700.00 bucks on the spot. I told him NO WAY. Again this thing kicks AZZZ! It even cane with a bunch EastWest sounds. and I still Have room! A DREAMMM.

Great instrument! Sounds wonderful and it's built like a tank. 4 out of 5 because it's only 16 voice poly and it's so damn heavy. Studio in a box.

Look, the Emu E3 is *the* great secret. It's the best, fattest sounding sampler around, and runs rings around the newer E4's. I programme professionally, and often all this entails is dumping stuff from an Akai directly into the E3. Instant fatness.

Sure, they're getting long in the tooth and have limited memories, but with 16 outputs, it's the bee's.

Word of warning: can be freaky and need complete line-up/servicing at least once a year if not more.

Overall, still the best by a very long street. 10 out of 5, no question. Peter
