Heh, just a bit. Despite now being more than double the age I was when the EII reigned supreme with them... :)

Nice demo JMP !
I've just got an emu2+ HD myself... Is there a way to get some of these samples ? (I've got only 40 of them on internal HD). Thanks a lot for any help !

Steve, get in touch with Rob at the Emulator Archive here:

http://www.emulatorarchive.com/Store/store.html

You can buy the Mac cable and sound library on CD. There are in Sound Designer format though so you'll need an old Mac and SCSI CD drive to connect and load them. I've spent a lot of time getting this sorted over last few months so give me a shout if yoiu need any help. Refer to the EII Yahoo Users Group for compatible Macs, new ones don't work with the EII.

No prob. You get the cable and CD full of sounds in Sound Designer format for that so a good deal IMO.

To date a Mac SE, a Mac Colour Classic (the one I'm currently using) plus a Powerbook 165C. The last two with an Apple SCSI CD rom drive too for reading the CD. Main issue with the old Macs is the small hard disks, the colour classic one is 80MB (reasonable for the time it was built) but only big enough to hold my favourite sounds from the lot. Rest remain on the CD, just takes a bit longer loading and searching etc. (but no way as long as loading a 5.25" floppy !)

Man, that demo and several of your songs are marvelous! =D> you should take Alan Wilders place in Depeche Mode :wink:

But concerning the People are People samples. You sampled them from the video, but do you know wif they belong to the Emu library at all or are they DM:s own?

Hah- right. Hopefully I'll 'dream' that one tonight.... thanks anyway for the compliment.

According to the youtube description the poster sampled them from the original song. They're DM's own, even the library sounds that sound like some of theirs are still different, I've listened very carefully. The 8-bit quality definately give the sounds that raw edge though that you can hear in their music IMO.

Yes I red that too, but it did´nt exclude the possibility that they´re from the library.

Thanks again for your support JMP.
I'm going to have a mac SE/30 to get sound designer working + external scsi CD + external scsi HD. I'm waiting for the emu cable, but I didn't get an answer from the guy yet.
I'm highly interested to get other sd banks for emu II ! (downloads ? CD ? )
I love the blue beast !

No prob, good luck getting it all up and working. Which external SCSI HD have you acquired? Would fancy picking up a compatible one myself. Rob at Emulator Archive gets the cables made to order, mine took about four weeks or so.
