I nearly bought that one (!) but found another locally so glad you got hold of this after wanting one for so long. :)

To the OP, absolutely fantastic job on the EII, so good to see something restored so well. I still have a backlight and some buttons to fix on mine but otherwise working well with 2X FDD's.

Regards HxC and Emuser, have either of you considered an original Sound Designer/Mac setup? I had HxC in a DPX-1 and found it a PITA paging through all the banks, one by one to get to the one I wanted. Pretty sure Emuser loading is lower than Mac/SD too, about 15 secs compared to 12 secs from Mac.

I currently have a Powerbook 170 connected to my EII with about 300MB HD, large enough to store all my favourite banks. Easy to view on the Mac to see what bank I want before loading. Has that 'vintage' cool look too running Sound Designer. :)

Give us a shout if/when want some interesting sound banks for your machines.

Thanks for your kind words JMP =)
I might try both Emuser and Mac / SoundDesigner, but I dont have space for too much gear.

And sure I'd like some soundbanks :)

Hi JMP

Yes will use 8-32x 3/8 Stainless.
These will work to fix the steel chassis to the housing.

Ebay
