E-MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

*runs around in circles; screaming while flailing arms*
None of the discontinued product manuals are available on E-mu's site...

Hey BlackGnosis did you try emailing them? Several manufacturers are more than happy to email you manuals for discontinued products if you ask. When I got a Ampeg solid state guitar amp that was made in the early 90s I asked them for a manual and they gladly sent it. Mention your serial number too.

Huh, wonder when they took that all down. I remember getting Command Station manuals and patch lists from there relatively recently.

Which manual are you after? Perhaps try the relevant Yahoo group, someone may be willing to put it in files section if it's not there already.

Huh. Well that's a bummer. They used to have a really comprehensive backlog.

There are a bunch at http://soundprogramming.net/synthesizers/e_mu_0 and http://soundprogramming.net/samplers/e_mu_0

I noticed that myself.

E-mu have really gone downhill.

I have posted links to whatever E-mu manuals I still have on the VSE's E-mu pages.

And also link to many here: http://www.synthman.com/emu/index.html

E-MU went downhill, ever since Creative bought them out in 1993! :P

Maybe, but they still provided support for legacy products until fairly recently (as pricklyrobot correctly notes above).
Wonder why would they do such a thing; can't believe the bandwidth costs were significant :evil:

On a related note, does anyone remember last year's poll about what new E-MU hardware people would like? Generated heaps of enthusiasm, and then everything just fell silent...
