E-MU Emax
Polyphony 8 notes, 1 mga non-expandable RAM, 12-bit chantillonage ... and all menus and submenus in front faade is very practical. The RAM is a bit short: the EMAX is Designed to save tons of crystal clear sound, but a unique sound to work, the Manir a synthtiseur. MIDI is implementations, the chorus is good and does not divide the polyphony of the bte. The filters of the EMAX are absolutely extraordinary. No FX Intgr. The EMAX is solid as a tank. (And also the weight of a tank ...). The keyboard of 61 keys is not the best of the EMAX CHARACTERISTICS ... But there are eight outputs spares + 1 + normal output pair other little goodies rear faade.


Not bad at all, write to the IDE on the sampler menus and submenus: for the rest, the edition of the loops is tedious and the computation time a little long. Everything is on disk, including the OS. No loading sounds for the game buttons Rubberized trs enjoyable to the touch.


Gniales! The sound is warm, bold ... The filters are falling down, the LFO modulate the pan, pitch, tremolo ... I got good trs rsultats sample in one or two in this lovely old analog bte ... Rsultat convincing a sampler that sounds like a pro, and has not trspchu this little cold ct What gnralement the samplers: the EMAX a coronation personality.


If you want 30 minutes of sample crystalline quality CD sound, look elsewhere: the EMAX is an old sampler with little RAM - just enough to do what he does best, ie take on the 5 octaves and hack so that one wonders if the EMAX is a sampler or synthtiseur.

The polyphony is 8 notes which was a real problem was the time to make a sequence that sounds, but now that we have the protools and friends there's more track record and c ' is happiness.

The converters are great I do not know what they put into it but bluffing.
It uses the same process as the general Emulator II ie the 8 bit compression in real time, giving it the unique grain.

For effects there is a chorus and stereo with lfo modulation was the philosophy of the house, the machine was primarily designed for studio equipped effect in number.

The memory is a bit limited, it is only a mega, my computer is listed in a 2000 times (it's beautiful the Advanced Technology)

For outputs there is a stereo pair and eight separate outputs, which does not blow. otherwise Midi in, out, Through and rs 422 port connected to a mac (at the time) for editing samples (I tell you no budjet of the time for this configuartion).


It is a machine very easy to use, there is even the doc screen print on the machine,
To read a disk there are 2 buttons to push (not too hard to do).
Editing is super simple you can assign full control of real-time or we want the filter on modulation ,......

The manual is poorly translated and not used to much so it is easy to use sampler.


Converters make the machine it is the only happiness is round and warm.
For the filters then we talk about serious things, you know the Prophet 5? and although it is the same analog filters 24 db, so nothing to add.


These are the first machine with which I sampled there is already a long time and it is true that at the time it was a polyphonic can be corva level. Aujourd'huit and I rediscover this wonderful machine, which has a mixed modern studio is exeptional. It gives a real warmth and novelty in the world of our favorite synth plugins.

After the machine is not for everyone, everything already done by the machine drive so slow, it is like programming and the Beast is super impressive.
I'll just say it's a favorite when you listen and you play with ....

Nothing more to say but the site info Scsiforsamplers sell dsormais racks compact flash to back up your sounds, but for Emax HD / HDSE, unfortunately not for this model.

Uh if prvoyez some space is big and heavy the guy.


For me it lacks an important parameter, the glideslope.
Next to the frquence chantillonage we can not "taler" on the sample as many notes as desired. It is better to know.

The edition is my faith in the E-mu's era, a little long but not as well dsagrable pens.
Obviously compared to today's apps can not fight it ...


Spa in my habits but ... able, it is round, it's beautiful, it's clean or dirty, it's E-mu oldschool adfouraille, if so

About the results despite the improbable age of vnrable, a water sample or Zique film in 10 khz and dtunez l. .. It sounds like a synth granular but with a more bold, profound, and really dirty.

The filter has a cool sound even pushed back by only lowpass cons.

pti comparo the prompt:
I think he does better than MS in sound level, at least over the SP12turbo I had. Indeed it can sound cleaner than the SP and thus be less connotes. For example I am confused at the hi-hats, cymbals (among others) played in the style.
Note that it can also sound more dirty!
Compared the SP12 at least we can totally zap filtering or envy and assayed in real time.
MS is Ingal to tune sounds by looping and cons, do it with a fader has its rulez just everything that makes h h.

Otherwise ay lot like when even if a sample frquence close to that of MS. It is neither worse nor better, it's DIFFERENT and it sounds good at all.
Me I'm absolutely amliorer my channel sampling vinyl to honor him, I currently going through a terrible and Pramper RIAA not blowing (that of a filter Electrix).
Idalie I would need a good eq before sampling too.
I thought a small A & E that would Xone Pramper eq + + analog filter has would not hurt him to think I get the most juice.


Why we do more to sample with as much character these days?
It's a shame.

Sound like a modern interface and, for a person rhaaaa Emax PCIexpress?
