The configuration of the Emax is mainly thanks to clear the screen printing on the keyboard .... almost not bother to open the user manual
Filters of Emax are a killer chorus can add value in sound coloration
I possesses 10 years since I used a lot of Akai S1000 S2000 MPC2000 Z4 Emax2 but remains one of my favorites.
The least: the screen is too small and lack of brightness (a priori easy to replace)
They are found in all price ranges ... from 500 to over 1000 (??)
500/600 for me it looks okay
and yes if one day he let me go I will do everything to have an Emax I or II again.
