12 controllers in real time in addition to conventional controllers (Vol, expr, pan, etc ...)

Possible extension Roma 3 = 128 MB


Configuration is complex in terms of routing capabilities of samples;
We can send them through filters 44 performers, leading term module Morpheus, the famous Z-plane filter, which buries the simple cut of / reso.

Editing is done corect with 4 controllers that pass in front in edit mode to simplify it.

For less than 80 euros, go up a gear thanks to the special series editor proteus 2000, the company Proteum Saxonite a must, the "only" that is able to navigate well in the bowels of the beast, without Plantade not addicted!
The manual is standard, and stands on its own, but read it carefully is essential to understand the internal architecture and philosophy of the unit.

Slave clock for MIDI, for example to synchronize the machine with a control station, the sync lfo enslave, especially arpégiatteurs and 16 beats, sort of pre-patterns of grooves on drums 16 no variations of drum grooves, variations, instrument riffs stakeholders, ect ...

Connect the module as a slave on a software DJ'in "virtual turntable" and send a pattern, beat or tempo riff of the disc .... Very freindly to remix live!


32 MB sound-oriented Urban music, hip hop, are & be, drum & bass, ragga, very effective in these styles.

There are few instruments, but those who are there do well, and is more than enough.

The highlight is the grain of the rom board, the Pure Phatt, sampling of most drum kits and bass, are very "fat" and "heavy", probably 32 kHz;

The output gain needs only half the input trim on the console, so there is ample and powerful!

One has the impression of having a compression processor output, no need to "lock up" the sound excessively.

On pregnant Fostex PM2 proximity type, the image is to go, although distinct and punchy, with no saturation, or deterioration of the sound.

With a subwoofer, we understand the magnitude of the low type "sub" and some drum kits that take off the wall of the abdomen!

I do not proselytize, because I have a machine park of E-mu, of course the effects are somewhat outdated in terms of ergonomics, but the machine meets the requirements of this why it was created, ----- SOUND ----- -------------

No late orders ... An excellent engine Intel and Motorolla board.

Another important point, polyphony, 128 channels of 32 channels! The true, no failure in the execution of many notes.


The Americans knew how good machines like this, shame that Creative has taken the brand offers only solutions cards, soft drinks and samples;

Logic say to me, they always made great public sound cards, good luck with their new solutions they claim their product line and move the vector multimedia home-studio owners clientele.

Where the difference occurs, it is on the converters, a world between the machine in "hard" and the card, of course we are two sides of 44 kHz, but the grain has nothing to do, listen, and make a difference, I'm not saying the system-Creative Emu is not good!
But it is not even made ...

Check out my profile, you will understand that I "shaped ears"

Good music!
