(Edit for a few details in "Use")
See below.

Mine came with the optional keyboard / digital I / O to the purchase and CPUram 1MB then blocked EOS 3.00b. 8 separate outputs, I have 16.


I have since bought CPUram of DIY 2mo more or less made in Russia with the EOS 4.62 installed on it directly (ask the guy on tectonics emusonacid.co.uk if you want). It was not until I really enjoy my sampler.
Ended the galleys of SCSI hard drives ... sampler and works faster.

The notice of Kaos2323 challenges me on my own even basic config (cpuram 1mo so) it was not so slow, certainly not the time for a coffee between pages, almost immediate for the nav 'but it' was longer to calculate a time stretch so curious! (??).

The configuration is not simple when one starts from zero, but the manual is clear and complete enough so it just learning relatively quickly.
The interface is excellent one of the best in me, I love to edit the sampler.
EOS is configurable with onions (shortcuts, presets, load magic etc ...)
I tested it with Zoeos, we can make the transfer of samples and edit all the sampler from this software provided you have a SCSI connection and MIDI at the same time, but I'm faster on the sampler and I ' likes to tamper with my little fingers nimble.

Otherwise, the big plus E-MU samplers use is the modulation matrix and the internal routing tools or sound processing (excluding the effects that I did not).

I connect with an Adaptec 1480pcmcia on my laptop, everything works impec 'happiness.
For the scsi is surprisingly flexible, if I want I can plug the card after the pc is turned on it will be recognized anyway, I feel that it is linked to the card (?) On my old P3 tower and the pci that does not forgive.

The E6400 supports SCSI 9GB of theoretical maximum but I use a 18GB OS 4.62 internally without any problems, I think adding an external 18GB to backup.


The convertos are not transparent as input, output yes on the other hand for me on my sheets.
When I sample an analog synth, particularly the bass that does not please me, something is missing and I shot with my motu sample and transfer later and there is very good.
You have to sort through what passes in convertos. For me it's a plus.
I know some people use these convertos resampling to color in their sound I have to put me I have not discovered everything in this sampler, far from it.

As I said before the big plus of this sampler is the matrix and the tools available: Indeed there are processing blocks as in modular synths (quantize, flipflop, diode, lag processor ...) which allows change connections elsewhere about which parameter of choice, powerful.

When one enters the system and preset channel is crazy if I have 3 preset sounds I can choose to edit the group or channel associated with each filter and their modulation matrix, the possibilities are very broad in both synthesis and expression experiments.

It is served by good filters quite varied, including the famous Z-plane as well as formant filter, phaser, flanger, all interesting and useful.
Tools such as Doppler, bitreducer are in the game, and also a "Convolver".
much like the reverb as it uses a sample pulse and another to deal with.
Finally it makes me think about it, the results are unpredictable euuuhh .. 8)

A special feature of this sampler is also potato output headroom there is a wide and configurable, it's pretty impressive, I took the test between my MOTU and E6400 with the same rhythm loop, I do not know what said the theory but the motu has saturated much earlier. It can help when you mix in analog.


For a year and a half I have caused my misfortune it at first but now alala which foot. I filled a user I learn and discover every day that I turn it on, great machine.

I resigned to live above what I paid: 320 euro There's a year and a half, YES!
I am very pleased with the popularity of the computer music and softs.
