M1n05's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

E-MU Emulator X2
Very simple installation

Fails to launch with the EMU equipment connected (my sound card or my XBoard 1616)

Config OK to load the soft sound bank.
Config into a sampler + complicated

Manuel unread.


CPU: Athlon-M 3000 +
RAM: 1.25 GB DDR
Hard Drive: 40GB 5400RPM (==> I will change)
Sound Card: EMU 1616 PCMCIA
Keybord: EMU X-Board25

This Job title OK, overall, but better:
Off-the change in frequency of the CPU (to the max all the time)
7200-have a hard and big enough (for banks)

It is stable, but my harddisk is sometimes crack (discontinuity of) the audio on some sampled instruments (the + large)


I am just starting to use it, but this software is simply stunning for its part Sampler + Twista Loop:

Basically (in a few click) you do:
-Loading of various samples
-Association with a master key on the MIDI keyboard (eg)
-Activation of TwistaLoop
=> And there are several samples simultaneously, so they had no pace at first.

He must still apply a little (in the selection of samples, and the allocation of their characteristics ... as a choice of 4 measurements + + LoopForward trigger sync the keyboard), but then it's bliss!

It can also load the format of its banks

NB: I use a small XBoard 25 with this software.

As stated by M1n05, you must have a sound card (or MIDI) EMU compatible and connected to the ordo to use this app.
Not really good practice but, faced with the piracy of softwares, it is understandable that developers are trying to hard sell ...

Install without any problems, the latest drivers were on the CD-ROM!

Full PDF manual and French downloadable from the site of EMU


it runs well but it crashes quite often when opening a bank


I also have Kontakt and Halion I had

Clearly, the emulator is a killer to use as ... Sampler! For those who want to create their own sample libraries, there is no better. I use it also for this because for cons, it is not the best sample player.
On this point, I keep NI Kontakt is the standard for compatibility, ergonomics, power ...

Yes for the sampling, not to play the samples!
