Re: E-mu Emulator II Sampled with Free Kontakt Samples!

Check http://www.samplerobot.de/english/was.htm for automation of sampling Thanks for the info. I have spent this afternoon capturing and recreating one of the most beloved Emulator II sample disks ever released - direct from my EII's mix output. I will give details on how to download this wonder o...

Re: Rant about the lack of modern hardware samplers.

When you get down to it....blah, blah, blah...</snip> You really didn't get my post, did you ;) And to clarify, sampling should be done by the ear, not by the eye; the S6000 has a detachable panel so no staring at a big rackmount; I can drag & drop using ak.sys; and stating three things as a "uniqu...

Re: Rant about the lack of modern hardware samplers.

Just my tuppence ha'penny, for what it's worth ;) I am a big hardware fan but have realised that most things are going software and with good reason too. Personally, I think that we would all be best served by some proper hybrid systems that use the best of both worlds. However, that said, I still h...

Re: Wanted: Emulator II Samples WAV or AIF

A quick search of this board alone will throw up a number of threads asking the same thing, mine included. The simple fact is that there is currently no official EII library out there. There are a number of people who have successfully carried out digital conversions of the E-MU library as well as t...

Re: E-mu Emulator II Sampled with Free Kontakt Samples!

Dan, you need this: http://www.redmatica.com/Redmatica/AutoSampler2.1.html It automates the whole process. And the looping is as good as Antares Infinity. I'd love to have a go with that but it's Mac only, which is such a shame :( (cue loads of pro Mac/Anti-PC comments and how it makes a change for...

I can't help but play West End Girls whenever I fire those strings up :)

I am desperate to get my hands on that library!! C'mon Dan, what's it going to take to convince you?? ;)

Re: E-mu Emulator II Sampler with Free Kontakt Sample!

Thanks very much for this Dan :) As you have probably guessed, I would very much love for yo to do more of the EII. Sounds like these are very precious to me. So, if you ever feel that way inclined again, I would certainly lap up anything you decide to do :) I just recently acquired a new ReFill mad...

Re: Emulator EII Library

Dan, D-Collector, thank you for your replies. Dan, until someone takes the time and effort to sample the EII library from an EII directly so that us mere mortals can benefit, I'll take whatever I can get. Whilst I can't recreate the processing environment contained within an EII, I can take these so...

Emulator EII Library

So here I am again, embarking on another perennial mission to seek out the elusive EII library in order to use it on today's more modern tools :) This search has been kick started again by my acquisition of a long sought after library, that of the Fairlight CMI IIx which has just been released in Re...

I'm useless with P/shop but I'll describe in words what would be a pretty awesome synth. Alesis Fusion with the linear sequencer stripped out and replaced by an MPC sequencer plus the pads. A bit more knobbage and a ribbon. They're half way there with the MPC5000, now they just need to make a keyboa...

I don't know how helpful this might be, but we have that exact Emulator II string sound in the Hollow Sun library and have it for free download in the Alesis Fusion format . Sadly, this cannot be converted but it also appears in our VST, Nostalgia , released in conjunction with Zero-G. I created thi...

hey, what's the best fairlight sample library out there? (the IIx) the prorec one? or something else I haven't found? The Pro Rec is probably the most extensive but not the easiest to work with. I also have stuff that Hollow Sun did, and then there's the Cult Sampler VSTi and it's ProSamples little...
