My contribution :

For years I wanted a Emu sampler. Last year I bought mine dirty cheap. It's a Emu 4XT Ultra with RFX32 card.

I've worked with software in the past with a little bit of hardware. So the samplers were software, therefore I'm quite familiar with samplers. The first thing I noticed when connecting the Emu sampler was the sound. In comparison with software (straight off the box) it sounded big, warm and more organic with a track completely build by the Emu, it just sounds good even without tweaking. But remember, use good source material (samples).

I've never worked with an Akai sampler so comparison between them is impossible for me.

Just wanted to say I'm really impressed with this machine. It will not leave my studio unless I can make more fat tunes with software, but I'll cost alot more in outboard terms. With the Emu you don't even have to buy those pricey compressors to have satisfying results.

Go check it out people!

I owned a E4XT Ultra since half a year. It's a great sampler. I want to store sysex data on the sequencer but there's nothing on the track. When I started sending sysex, the midi led on emu is blinking. The Technical support mailed me, EOS is not designed for recording and playback sysex. But in the manual they wrote that the sequencer also function as a midi data filer. Who can help? Thanks a lot.

EOS Versions This is a complex subject - please check www.emu.com for details

Overview The Emulator Operating System (EOS) has moved on leaps and bounds over the last 8 years. Here is a complete guide to all the versions, if possible upgrade to the latest version. Ultra owners can upgrade to the most current version, but non-Ultra owners can only upgrade as far as 4.10 Classic as the OS Flash ROM on the main board can't be upgraded to hold the larger Ultra EOS.          EOS Version Upgrades are availale from download at www.emu.com

Version 4.8  USB SOFT  Not available until late 2002. This release provides support for integration with Emulator 5 software sampler and the forthcoming Emulator Ultra USB card. It also has new SysEx to cover the RFX-32.

Version 4.7  BIG DISKS Available in June 2002, this release implements a new EOS file system to properly support large disks (20 GB plus). It will have numerous RFX enhancements and bug fixes. It will have all of our most current plug ins, including the new compressor plug in. Lastly, it will introduce a file system that can be used to format large hard drives enabling more efficient use of space than the current file system allows for. It's a FAT32 file system, but it does NOT support PC sharing of the drive at this time, the loss of data is to risky.

THE MIDI OFF TIMING AND OTHER PROBLEMS ARE DUE TO YOUR SEQUENCER SENDING MIDI CLOCK DATA. TURN IT OFF AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. IF YOU'RE USING OLDER SOFTWARE THAT'S MOST LIKELY WHAT IS WRONG. I USE CAKEWALK PROFESSIONAL 5.0. I HAD THE SAME PROBLEMS UNTIL TODAY. JUST FILTER OUT THE MIDI CLOCK DATA BEING SENT TO THE UNIT. IT SHOULD WORK FINE THEN.
