Jotaperufino's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The ITS PHATT"

E-MU Planet Phatt
Expander-sounding Old School (Hip Hop, RNB ...).


Editing simple when you know the machines EMU, no need to book.
For cons for novices should read the manual.
I use it to complement the micro Korg.


The SON, compared to having for a while I do not agree with those who say that the sound of the world is like that of the Phatt MO Phatt, I would say that the 8 MB of sounds from the planet Phat sound fatter than the 32 MB Mo Phatt.

Very good dynamic. Try with an external effects processor.

Level of its banks it is better to lose a moment to reprogram the original banks to get the sound we are looking for (using the modulation and filters and there is the slap).

Still, I noticed that there are samples that are repeated, I think this must be due to the memory of 8 MB).


For those looking for sounds hip hop Old school type (Gang Star, A Tribe calles what, the Soul, etc. ... And feel super good buy for money.

Manual in English or German.
simple config without reading the manual.


Sounds are trs typs 90's. The drum kits are nice and have a good potato.


A rack of nice sounds if touched at good prices. I'm still not all in the bowels of the machine hack lice. An amended notice and complete in a few weeks.

Useful because you can run a beat drums and play lead on it.
I like the flashy purple faade too.

E-MU Planet Phatt
EMU's my boy!

Oh yeah, a strong Tappe ... you like the sound of Old School quality big? You want jazz and break? ben this rack is for you!

A lot of sounds, not a throw (ben y 'filters to modify and paramtres of synthse ...)
Thunderous beats, sounds and beatbox percussion, vintage keyboards ... pfff! but how they put it all in??

MIDI full (too full)
6 audio outputs hyper dense (will have to change the console!)
Everything is parameter.


I do not understand how it's done to screw in the fly box? what message is screwing sysex??

Joking apart ... everything is simple.
Retailer Edition terribly, but easy to understand.
English manual (but I am sure that Basque version is available ... :-)

We dbrouille without the manual to beginners and a stroll in time others can enviseager nooooorme the potential of the BTE.


Ah, if my music is appropriate??
Well, I know ... I use it and I'm still not possible the question ... I yrflchir ...

Ralistes sounds?
Yes, it looks real sounds of synths! and also the real sounds of BAR and vintage! incredible ...
I was hesitant to come across the sounds of grant or rape.
Yes the sounds are excellent, EMU or not, this rack is great!

It Ragit all, a plant never ... happiness

The sounds that I prfre ... um ... good! ca fits like rponse? right?
ok, I dveloppe:

- String correct (for a module is not ddi dja well)
- Brass and wood for those who are Submitted, not bad, the BRASS typs are trs HipHop
- Low: greasy, deep and well-Dfine
- Lead: correct for synths and excellent for piano, EP, clavinet ...
- Sound effects: scratches, voice, zapp ... y 'has tons of excellent right

FILTERS terrible sounds of high quality trs: a real studio module.


WITH the exprience ... (Amended notice:

Ben is worse. the only weak point is its "low" polyphony. And since they are able to russ and marketing at EMU, they are prvu that can be in chains 2,3,4 ... a number. So I'll take the opportunity to add one and it paste this controller that Satan Pipelines Limited for! Well, we'll have to sort the output, I can not spend 12 just for the two racks ...
But I continued to dfendre: PROTEUS 2500 and with two samplers is the killing.

Good bte my faith.

I almost forgot to tell you about the Z-Plane Filter: variable envelope and everything! Gnaaaaaa ... I spend nights on the dirt of thing that kills! TERRIBLE

Planet Phatt

The disc is scratched: this is the first observation after listening to the demo ... The presence of scratches and other crunches perfectly evoke the era of vinyl. Both the Orbit was very dance-oriented, both the Planet Phatt groove on the side "east coast" - certainly not for nothing that the manufacturer calls it "The swing system." Moreover, in the famous Beat Mode, the majority of loops oscillate around 90 to the black, that says it all! With 480 waveforms, 250 for batteries (counting scratches and percussion), this unit is full of groovy sounds over each other. The programming is very classical and we can note that compared to the original Orbit, Planet Phatt is the version 2.0. On the agenda: the long-awaited opportunity to pass on drum loops (with mini-sequence of instruments) via MIDI! Three modes are available (Master page): no transmission, transmission only to the MIDI Out to play instruments without internal, and the same thing while playing the instruments internal. So we can recover the loops on the computer or sequencer workstation and edit it by taking advantage of the power of such tools. This is also very convenient to analyze the grooves and deduce custom quantization grids. Let us briefly recall what the Beat Mode: we are dealing with a mini sequencing of events as part of pre-programmed drums, bass, a few chords (themselves triggered from the keyboard as "chord memory") . We can change the pitch, tempo, key trigger, stop, mute from a keyboard. These calibration parameters are stored in locations users. This system, introduced with the Orbit, has the advantage of being extremely simple to implement: Pressing both buttons simultaneously on the front (ie Master and Edit) and you're done. Then it will handle all the keyboard or even with the talented Launch Pad (chronicled along the orbit), the famous remote control packed with tricks that allows a true real-time control of the main bodies of Proteus . As usual with E-mu, the demos are not up to the content of the devices and we can only advise to listen carefully to the presets to get an accurate picture of the many sonic possibilities of the Planet Phatt.
