If you still have the DW8000s, post a description of the failures in the help section?

You bet, I've done so already! I checked all the obvious stuff that I could.

The followup to the M1, the X3 often is found for less money.

If you are looking for certain key sounds the M1 is famous for (such as the organ and piano used in lots of 90's house tracks) then the X3 isn't suitable since it contains a different sample set. Just something to keep in mind if you are after particular M1 sounds.

My other suggestion is the emu audity 2000 - cheap rack. This is filled with sick dark sounds.
I used it on a project - X Stendell (on bandcamp) if you want to check it out.

The audity is so cheap that it'd be well worth just getting to explore it.
Its probably the last thing emu made??? has useful knobs for editing on the front panel - doubt you'll find anything darker. :)

Emu made quite a lot of hardware synths after the Audity 2000, eg: the Proteus 2000 range, including the Command Stations & more.

The Emu XL1 & XL7 contain all the Audity 2000 waveforms.

Hi

Why not try the iM1 for iPad?
It sounds like the M1. I have the M3r and the N1r the iPad M1 is great and you can have almost all the cards for next to nothing. :o
