The EII library (take this with a grain of salt since I have yet to dive into it) has on order of almost 4GB of sample data. Don't know if it actually includes the factory sounds plus the more famous disc sets... I'm hoping so. It did come with the drumulator samples as well, so that was a nice addition.

I know that when I had everything for the EII on flash, I believe it came in just under 8GB total for all the floppies out there that were converted to images. Which reminds me... I still have the original archive in disk storage somewhere... hmmm :idea:

The one thing about sample libraries based on older samplers, unless you're looking for something specifically off one of the sample sets that were out in the day, is it's always going to be rather limited. It's not like they created a virtual sampler that you can load your own sounds on.
Does that mean playable on a modern computer? You should find that, and upload it.
Not immediately playable, but I suppose if I dedicated some cycles to doing it, I could make it happen. Right now everything is in floppy image files, and I'd have to extract the samples and likely convert them, and do a bit of manual labour to get it all together correctly.

There's a few sites out there that have EII libraries available as disk images. Those combined with the EMXP software will allow you to convert to your heart's content to WAV or Soundfont format.
