Re: E-MU EMULATOR II+ Work Log

To match the texture you use a texture spray gun that has a variable hole size or multiple holes and you tweak the paint thickness and air mixture to match. Basically trial and error on a bunch of cardboard first. The reason I want to spray in texture is because the shell has dings that go all the w...

Re: E-MU EMULATOR II+ Work Log

...so I'm probably going to paint one of the EII shells soon. The closest color match to any standard color system is PMS 7545C, basically close to #425563, RGB(66,85,99) etc.. (of course don't use your shitty uncalibrated computer screen for color matching). Instead of starting off with the PMS col...

Re: E-MU EMULATOR II+ Work Log

^nice. the boards look good. it looks like you replaced the pots and stuff too. I know you have your power supply squared away but I wanted to share my latest drop-in replacement. It's a direct replacement for all EII/+/HD. Based around the RT-85C- the analog +13.2V, +12V, and -15V rails are fully p...

Re: E-MU EMULATOR II+ Work Log

Did you repaint it? What paint did you use? I've never painted an EII. I have one now that I'm looking to repaint. If I have it done I'll match the color and texture of the original paint. I'll follow up here if/when it gets done. AlphaC I found these PCB's I made years ago for the EMuSer. I have a...

Re: E-MU EMULATOR II+ Work Log

The inserts for mounting the PCB's to panel are 6-32 brass inserts. They are mold-in inserts, inserted during molding of the enclosure (the enclosure appears to be ABS + 50% fiberglass (or other other bulk-molding compound w/ glass). The inserts are about 4.25mm tall. Also, it's not common to see bu...

Re: E-MU EMULATOR II+ Work Log

...sounds good. Regarding EII overlay, I see you have a II+ - There's some EII overlays here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/E-MU-Emulator-II-Overlay-Labels-Set-sp1200-depeche-mode-emu-systems-/323343583204 These are excellent quality. They are dead nuts on, the 10mil polyester material is the same exact ...

Re: E-MU EMULATOR II+ Work Log

Worst condition EII I've ever seen! I registered just to follow and contribute to this thread. I've restored several EII's among other and it looks like you have the knowledge and skills and doing a great job. A few notes. 1) Great decision replacing the original power supply with the Mean Well RT-6...
