The last 10 years my e-64 was replaced by software sampling until One day I decided to load some of my sounds into the emu e-64 and discovered they sound fat and warm compared to software. Now the e-64 is back in use on a full time basis, using the sampler a remote ASCII keyboard as a controller is fabulous. I have the same samples loaded without effects in samplers Kontakt, EXS24, Reason, a kurzweil k2000 and the Emu e64 for comparison. The emu e64 just blows the others away, making the sample sound so musical, fat and warm. It's worth converting you sample patches with chicken translator and loading them back into this old sampler. It's really a fantastic sounding machine.

I just managed to buy a 32 meg E64 for just £40.00 that has no rack ears and the screen backlight has gone, once owned by the Orb. Can't wait to try the beast.

Message to the raz and others,

I've had a e64,a e6400 then a e5000 ultra which may have the same sound as a e6400 ultra, The sound is really different between a e64 and a e6400 ultra; The e64 sound is less perfect but so warm,ideal for electro,house;sounds a little 12 bits,very friendly with big sound The e6400 ultra sound is nearer akai sound,very polyvalent but less warm and friendly, Ciao

I have two E-64s with (EOS 4.10) they load Akai S1000,S3000. Roland S700 and all the various Emu formats and they load very fast. I don't think there's a better hardware interface on the market. The sound quality is superb with 8 seperate outs and two SCSI connectors with digital in and out. If you can find one don't hesitate to buy it there a real bargain at less than half the cost of an E5000.

If you can find one of these used they're a phenomenal deal. At about seven years old, they still hold their own against any of the samplers on the market today. I was considering the e5000, but I'm glad I went with the e64 for the following reasons:

1. The e64 was about half the price.

2. It has 8 outs, two SCSI ports, and AES/EBU digital in and out; very useful features which would add another $1000 or so to the cost of the e5000.

3. It uses the same OS as any of the Ultras, and can do everything except Beat Munging.

This sampler is probably the cheapest way to use the Emulator Operating System, which is what makes EMU samplers so brilliant. If you're considering an ESI or even an e5000, you may want to look into the e64.
