It seems suspicious that I recommend the E-mu CS for a lot of different applications. They still in the shadows and being sold under $500 maybe because -the most common model, the purple MP-7, was aimed to the hip hop market, the presets are awful, and there are prejuices over the rompler synthesis.Hugo76 wrote:@ balma:
What you say about the E-mu arpeggiator is really interesting, and makes me seriouslyconsider getting one.
But the truth is:
They have an outstanding powerful sequencer with tons of features and multiple tools to handle external gear.
They are romplers with a vast modulation matrix, allowing 96 patchcords per patch, fully assignable to controllers.
The arpeggiator concept is really a beauty. A vast world of versatile features to explore.
There are 50 filters to choose from, with dedicated filters for vocals, basses, rings, etc.
Plus 128 poly, internal chorus effect for each layer inside presets (from 4 to 12 chorus per patch), almost each parameter is syncable with the tempo/ MIDI clock, 15 LFOS, lots of random parameters, pink, white noise, and you can even design your own LFOs using clock dividers. etc etc.
The result is a synth wich can produce a infinite amount of original sounds, with a sequencer. It´s madness they cost around $350. Around 8 years using them, and I can´t stop getting impressed with their power.
