After years of using software instruments I decided to aquire some hardware, and one of the first was the esi32. What have I been missing out on all these years ? Sample recording, editing and placement is a breeze, NOT SO IN REASON'S NN-XT... The sound quality is warmer than software, and it is totally reliable with NO LATENCY !!!! True, the processing time is very slow, but once it's done, it's done, so time spent in the studio pays dividends on the road. I plan to gig with this, wouldn't have considered going live using software. I use this sampler along with an Akai s2000 which I use for drum sounds with an Alesis control pad. The E-Mu I will use for keyboard sounds. I've already created a Mellotron preset recorded from a software instrument, but when processed in the E-mu the sound is so much better, richer and more alive. I paid 45 pounds sterling for mine with 32 meg and a syquest 230mb drive with 11 discs,..ebay... AMAZING PRICE !!!! Get hold of one now before everyone cottons on to these great bits of kit. Software is great, but you can't beat a rack full of gear behind you when you're on stage. Everyone loves flashing lights and buttons.

The Emu ESI-32 is a very beautifully warm and clean machine, I have had it for only a few days, so I don't know much but I know I can dig it.

WARNING :dont get an esi-32 if you want a bunch of pre-made sounds (bass,organs,leads ect...) - your better off getting some modern synth kyb. nowadays (korg triton,Roland XV-50 ect..)

a sampler is a creative instrument- you use your imagination!- yet,all some seem to do is complain about some boring cd-rom of presets-

no cd-rom is a replacement for talent,creative genious and most of all HARD WORK!

the esi-32 has a beautiful quality -great for electronica,trip hop,soundtrack or especially anything Depeche mode inspired -alan wilder has always been a big Emu user.

the esi-32 is best used these days as a supplemental instrument -used for its unique qualties -I wouldnt want this as my main instr. though.

highly recommened !!!!
