    E-MU SP-1200Publié le 09/28/16 à 04:49
    My first drum machine I learned on! It's so user friendly with all the instructions written on the faceplate! The shape and vibe that comes off this thing is like it's saying, "Feed me samples... let's make a beat today!" Sampling drums into here accompanied by an 8 channel mixer with eqs, makes this your best friend! There's limited sampling time, which makes for an amazing sounding texture... just put a drum loop from the turntable on 45 speed, sample, then pitch the sound down to a normal speed, and you get it back with the magic only an sp1200 can provide! :bravo:...

    12 bit. Ergonomics impeccable. But nothing so rvolutionnaire we would like to believe.

    Surbuzze a machine and therefore the hype is at least as large as the price compltement dplac.

    UTILIZATION

    Trs is easy to use, at the same time there is no risk of getting lost in the multitude of samples that can not fawn all sampler since only 10s if I remember well.

    The rest is the E-Mu is square.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is pretty rotten for anything other than percussion. Sound 12 bit internal and hacks have probably made this machine a kind of "must-have" for all hip-hop producers who would have certainly gone out with both a 12 bit sampler of the era (S950 For example, if S1000/S1100 for......

    The sound is pretty rotten for anything other than percussion. Sound 12 bit internal and hacks have probably made this machine a kind of "must-have" for all hip-hop producers who would have certainly gone out with both a 12 bit sampler of the era (S950 For example, if S1000/S1100 for 16 bit) and a good compressor.

    The 12 bit provides a dynamic that forces pushing Reduces the volume. It's kind of natural compression that makes the sound "tape". Ms. phnomne with the Akai S950.

    But the real plus is its groove, and above all the honors she MRIT.

    OVERALL OPINION

    A machine overrated, too CHRE too hype (it's a common thing in the middle hiphop!), Too everything to end up with a good machine Exceeds long.

    SOUNDS

    12bit sound unstoppable on percussion, typical aliasing hyper and used by the greatest hip hop producer, Pete Rock, DJ Muggs, easy mo bee, terminator x, Marley Marl, Beatminerz etc.

    the analog filters on each output programmed pr trs are effective and beautiful bass drums for example

    OVERALL OPINION

    We talk about the SP1200 in hip hop for years yet this box rhythm is also used by the vast majority of producers and electro house music around the world

    the standard benefit is its sound on drums and great ease of programming, the limits of the machine quickly become advantages if we try a little out of context the SP1200 rhythm box, I am proof of the number inclaculable classic hip hop that came out only in this box, coupled S950 gives an excellent combo hip hop,

    the only c ngatif the box too sequencer rhythm that drives the acquisition of MPC or when using soft synths or sound modules.

    Small grants you the SP12, which offers half the memory but the same

    bought a SP1200 is a choice of rl work for the beat maker, rdite several times in 1987, 1998, this bar more than 20 years remain to me for many still REFERENCE ann are!

This little aliasing frequencies that generates an inimitable gives more to your samples. But it is essential to "tune" the samples for that famous sound. Have easily circumvent problems of lack of seconds in the samples in WaveLab detunan for example, it even tells you the last of the sample and see the number of seconds in the machine at the time of recording and there. No need to edit the cutting is perfect!

    OVERALL OPINION

    In finality it's like all machines are like or have not love ...
    But if you do not want you to head to "tamper with" your kicks and snares to sound it. The SP1200 is there for you. Take an old snare and add in a good way hiphop punchy and very quickly, here is the work of the sp. some demo at:

    was just under 6 months that I have my SP1200 and I could not rsister to buy his sister the 12 sp.
    I absolutely love everything about this machine.
    The report quality price I'm satisfied since it is now paying
    I would do this choice without a doubt.

    The squenceur oldie is enjoyable.

    The use is very simple. It's better than the Ensoniq Mirage.
    To me, the manual is not clear to beginners trs. As we understand and measure.

    Sometimes the correction signal can arrange two or three things.

    I have since 1997.
    The squenceur is too old.

    For prices: Phantasm and Ralite are rarely compatible.

    I just bought a SP1200 to United States. I made one with her now.
    Warm: samples must pitch the dead. In 2.5 seconds it does not fit much. But even when not pitching too because if the tune is not enough to bring a normal speed. I personally go through an MPC before. Dja J'dites quick sounds and I scales "square" in the Sp
    For the drums are not mistaken. I had 3 machines 12 beats. A MPC60, I dtest because ... the sound is too intrusive. too fat, too fat, too Submitted. has sounds too bloated I think. S950 for which a price is really interresting BCAN. I always have mine, and frankly I carrment gets off. And so a SP1200.

    Frankly it's the rolls for drums. They are fat mga while remaining thin and prcis. I TACL of drums on old records in the Sp as they sound out of a database .... but for the better! Clean, dynamic, fat. MS me frankly sci.
    APRS in terms of sampling and the famous tune we like it or not. If you want to sound exactly the same with grain on your disk .... forget (almost) The Sp dfonce the frquences tunant in and you have something that is super dirty cringe. But! a killing! You stuff without samples and they sound in the Sp + +!
    APRS is the old school. Must love. Even if the use for an old bleuff me as a BCAN because the menus are clear, well organized and functions at all, still has the old stuff that Mr. Everybody throw the bucket. You must love to spend some more time and make the "cheap". You no samples in every way you drive a loop, a drum and sailing. Squence for MIDI in (keyboard) I do not know, I have not ssay.
    The squenceur is cool but frankly I did find anything extraordinary groove if it is because these are the sounds of that groovy Sp. But once I squence the same beat in the Sp, once in my MPC uh .... the idolatry of squenceur SP excuse me but frankly I have not .... pfff Difference striking for such "rhooaaaa squenceur the MS it's too groooove mrr ..." brief. For comparison I find the MPC60 squenceur smoove much and I find that the yes, a particular groove.
    I would say that we should not buy a Sp above a certain price (which I will not say to not get pissed off those who sell Reuche hyper '). I find it even when CHRE for what it is and frankly this is much BCAN the "legends" that raises its rating.
    However, out of the question that I spare my own. )
    For those who want the 12 beats but not the means I highly recommend the S950. It is a machine that makes beautiful things on the drums.
    Finally I would say the least MS is not so much the 10sec sample of the fraction 4 * 2.5 and also the absence of a note off. It is CHRE I Tuva ('BPS me ...) but frankly it's really a pretty BCAN for lovers of vintage and beat 12.
    Couple another sampler and a l. ... kill!

    I will not procrastinate around the SP1200 is a result of machine technology and sononre EmuII EmuIII of an existing concept of the SP12.
    But there are two versions. That of 1991-1992 and that of 1997-98. And curiously the oldest sonnre better than later.
    Just had to say so. For the rest I'll let you read the other comments very pleasant.

    8 voice polyphony, not huge but more than adequate for efficient battery line, which originally was to be expected at the time.
    Must be fake after the bike and start to pile more things and be aware of the taff of producers who have to return this machine.
    3 types of filters can not be modified but effective if Equalise well as input, the attack on the low-pass is a bit boring I think.
    Velocity control for the game samples.
    For me the big handicap of the bike is the lack of a true "note off" internally, you can play on the restriction of polyphony for the worse.

    A transmission channel twelve o'clock it also limits a little but Tomorrow's a bike that has its own use or even coupled with another sampler, in a large set noon it is less obvious to the master.

    UTILIZATION

    Super intuitive and fast, a different but equally good GPA; more limited since only one track in sequence but also the fastest time.
    In fact it is a bike that forces hacking, both maintenance on its use or during sampling. If you put your hands in late and they took his ease with the latest gear and comfortable type MPC workstations or they will say it takes a little work, but he chewed it really pays back.
    Small pitfalls of the charm of the bike, connect-disconnect an output for listening to the filter, or manipulate the fader on the console if you have enough lanes available. It's like choosing to change his vinyl on his plate rather than file in Serato, everyone to see, for me the analog side cling well.
    A mention must also monitoring, mix-volume to zero when sampling to avoid being pinball, otherwise it will spit but it's clean when played.


    A concern often met a priori is the problem of high-pitched sound on the pads blank or end of sample when it was emptied his memory erased or copied samples before (on the border to gun down if you bump the ear headphones ). After recalibrating the RT did not help. I had read about DXArmy it came from a borked OS. Someone was kind enough to pass a non-corrupted OS. Insatnt for the problem is that income reload the pads my samples made with the old OS, and even then had to manipulate a little before seeing the problem resurface. In short this is not something rédibitoire.

    SOUNDS

    I have a Reed 93 and have never had the opportunity to use a gray, but already there we go into what makes the magic of this machine. I discovered yet because I had bought it down and it remained a good time for lack of someone to recover from applomb. (Analog-home repairs Lutherie; nine screen, condos output changed, changed op-amp for velocity, pads and buttons cleaned, re-calibration of RT. It finally returns like clockwork)

    To use the key word is to test because it's hard to know how to ring once in a sample. Some drum breaks take a particular color rather unexpected, or you move away from what is really sought, it is overlooking all expectations, detune a shot and puts you a slap snare.
    With time, we must surely begin to anticipate the report and even if it misses it can always give surprises to put aside Eto later.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Superb machine, although dated in terms of its functions is a bit hacker it becomes an incredible tool both for batteries, low, or create special tablecloths. The sound is very particular and did a lot of the charm of this machine. In my opinion it is anyway good premium, especially since they are rarely found without there being nothing else to do it, but right now it is a fairly general tendency.
