E-MU Emulator X Studio
Software could use a visual improvement, Emulator X Sampler not my favorite to use, but as a sound card, this thing is awesome.

Price paid: $600 USD


Gets some getting used to but overall worth the time investment. The options are endless.


Excellently built, breakout box is very durable and looks better in person than it does in the picture.


Very pleased with the sound quality. No Issues so far.

Overall this is a solid product and for the money is extremely hard to beat.

E-MU Emulator X Studio
For CHARACTERISTICS gnrales see the many product descriptions all over the net.

In particular, this edition is the complte m'intresse a preset on a PC screen, with all paramtes available in 2 or 3 pages (as against 50 or 100 in a Sampler Ultra ...),
and the possibility of backup of the whole, in short all the benefits of a PC solution.

The shipping of samples, loops Fast Fashion, stretching, etc., is a joy.
It is easy to use and works great. No more galres on the LCD screen of my
E (Synth Ultra (which I keep for that matter).
I find than moved could have a function "export" to use the presets called in
the Emulator X, samplers hard to "Ultra", the price that we pay them the era, EMU is
thanks all those who pay a sampler hard 10 times more!

Cot is quite resource hungry, and I think difficult to use in another soft simultanbr /> (I did a test with Stylus Rmx, but just a pass ...)
If one pushes the bottom of bte polyphony, I think you have a PC if ddi galre ...

Depending on import for EMU CDs, no need to "convert" utility since it can
CDs go directly to the brand.
Cot Akai, with "Converter", to be sure it works, but preset by preset (I was not able to convert an entire disk !!!???) I do wrong qqchose qqpart ...


No paper manual (except Quick Start and Installation (Summary)!

The PDF manuals are moderately clear.

I feel that if I did not know dja the operation of a sampler, I
struggled in these conditions ...

Cot installation in strict accordance with the instructions to install, no problem, but
1:30 to install even when hard + soft, and sometimes some doubt what was between the notch and
indicated that silent ...
But otherwise, no plantange, install OK the first time! everything is the conflict-free!

I return to edit this notice qq APRS usage time:

The PatchMix book by EMU to set up the docking station and external 8 in / 8 out + mic etc ...
trs is pretty, but lacks a bit of clear explanations ... I do not find in the manual (in PDF print self-same ...)
In short, my problem silent in its combination of several audio apps at the same time the driver called "EMU ASIO" as the only help low latency (5ms with me), but each application on a pair diffrent stro ... requte lgitime?? bin and not much obvious as it is the galre.

It did not go as has, and even when I have to spend a whole Saturday galrer, then I found an acceptable solution, dtail on my post:
https://fr.forums.audiofanzine.com/apprendre/mailing_forums/index, idtopic, 102052.html

In short, a do not seem to me that if a normal, and I lower my rating 8 / 10.


The whole is stable cot EMU, for against the ships with Cubase VST is VERY dcevant:
Cubase: crashes, panel dsuet Midi and Audio, VST support trs doubtful

For Emulator X: stable, clean, impressive
ASIO drivers nickel: 5 ms latency on a P4 2Ghz with no problem
irrprochable operation in audio clarity converters
(But large pb config ASIO multi-application, see above)

For cons, I still have not figured out how to get another soft using the same ASIO drivers EMU
(In directX ok, but the latency is standard)
When choosing EMU ASIO in another app, the Emulator X "loses" its audio outputs ...!!!)
There may be qqchose I did not understand that level, finally j'espre!
Note: See above, but what is finally rgl galre ...

Even when I put 8 / 10 for EMU, but would plutt 0 / 10 to Steinberg:
Cubase VST Technology = Very Shit ...


I've had one week so I do not ncessaire hindsight.
I am still the Discoveries of the product
but I could dja CRER qq spciaux presets that I could not do (or not the heart)
Esynth on Ultra ... (8 x64 LCD!)
Cot sound quality I'm still stunned, it's almost the level of my hardware hardware
(Esynth and VS2480).
Everything on the PC, and that price is just incredible!
(You just put some hands in the cambuoi for everything ... ASIO)

E-MU Emulator X Studio
Is all that is I believe, analogic two sym * 8 Mic 48V, ADAT, SPDIF, MIDI * 2, WClock, SMPTE ...
.... When a 1U full version Audio Dock, 16 * 16/16 * 16 ????????????

I write this after all drivers updater for purchase, and 1.71 it is very stable and open if we know the routing procedures in which there is nothing scary (AthlonXP PC 1GB DDR)

The pramps and ADC have, I think, a beautiful color compar other interface ds mm range and any devices found its place in the routing


No significant dincompatibilit ... 1.71 drivers
I find the Patch Mix, ie the software management, is a good solution, toff by FX ... which obviously limits their number. The ability to save any level of routing,
bus etc ... is a very valuable option for DtDs mix-rec-mix .... expanders with peripheral / external FX units

A power of PDF ncessaire but cest while browsing that we optimize the map with his homestudio


Driver version 1.71 is OK now on the teeth
VST32 Pack ... the problems come with lisa latency load seq / HD / Plugin but everyone has limitations. To audio inputs are available from 0 Latency Monitoring of rigor with FX EMU available, and finally jmarrete often twenty tracks VST / Audio on Bus 4-8


I bought the pack came out in my report and peripherals jrempile direct a version Multi-DSP AudioDock 16 times .... whatever you like. No regrets really, compared qlte unbeatable price
Not to mention, however EmulatorX who asks him a big BCAN fast, I go back
