EMU EMAX II Elements Of Sound 1 WORK
Download File - https://shurll.com/2sXylt
For now I am collecting both E-MU Emulator II and EMAX II sounds ( another great sampler ) for later use in my newly acquired Emulator II. I also have been extracting some of the WAV files for importing into one of my favorite samplers, the Roland S-760. From there I can then sample sounds into either the Roland S-50 or S-330. Of course the samples are not identical sounding as you would get out of the Emulator II, but it does allow me to use the samples and explore them while I get the Emulator repaired.
The Emax has an extensive library collection of samples that can beloaded via the built-in 3.5" hard drive. Or you can sample your ownsounds. The Sampler is powerful, but lo-fi. It samples at 12-bitresolution with variable sample-rates up to 42kHz. The built-in memoryis 512K which only gives you a few good seconds really. Sampling andediting is easy, complete and intuitive with auto sample placement,auto-looping, truncating, reversing, velocity cross-fade, etc. The Emaxalso features individual channel outputs and stereo outputs andextensive MIDI implementation.
I get the error No emax could be found in the current folder,(/images) I try to change the folder in exmp to images again and still it cant find the files and the extension is correct .ez2, what could possibly be wrong?
This is a rack version of the Emax II keyboard. It is a stereo 16-bit sampler, designed to faithfully reproduce sound across 10 octaves with 16-voice polyphony. It features SCSI, 8 assignable outputs, and 1 Meg of RAM, expandable to 8 Meg.
The original Emax was released in 1986, as a low cost version of the Emulator II. The base model cost $2,995; a rack version was also available for $2,695. Although it was fairly similar to the Emulator II in sampling specifications, the Emax used much more reliable parts, and stored sounds on 3½" floppy disks, as opposed to the more antiquated 5¼" floppy disks that the Emulator used. The Emax was advertised as a 12-bit sampler, which was, in reality, only half-true; although playback was 12-bit, only 8 bits were used to store each sample. While this led some to regard the Emax as inferior to its competitors, many modern users consider it to be a key part of the Emax's sound.
Several upgrades were available for the Emax during its lifetime. The Emax HD featured a 20 megabyte hard drive for storing samples. The Emax SE added an additive synthesis engine that let the user create sounds from scratch. The Emax Plus added external SCSI device capability in addition to the other updates.
The Emax was replaced in 1989 by the Emax II and Emax II Turbo. Although the Emax II was a true 16-bit sampler with more polyphony, it also used digital filters and components, which sounded noticeably different from the original's analogue filter chips. The Emax II also sported a noticeably higher pricetag; a base model cost $3,595, while a fully expanded model could cost as much as $8,000. Nevertheless, the Emax II found a niche among many professionals due to its large and varied sample library, and it enjoyed the longest production run of any E-mu product.
In audio production, sampling refers to the use of a portion (or sample) from a sound within another recording. As pioneers of the electronic music genre, Depeche Mode are among the most prolific acts to utilise sampling technology within a traditional pop music format. Among the many original samples recorded and utilized by Depeche Mode to enhance the atmosphere of their musical output are many that originated elsewhere, including brief passages of musical recordings by other artists, snippets of audio from television shows, radio broadcasts, films, environmental sounds, and more. Analysis of these sample sources and how they are manipulated is a popular topic of discussion amongst fans of the group.
We sampled some concrete being hit for what turned out to be the snare sound. All that entailed was us hitting a big lump of concrete with a sampling hammer. The engineer / producer we use, Gareth Jones, has got this brilliant little recorder called a Stellavox which we use with two stereo mikes and it's as good as any standard 30ips reel-to-reel but this is very small and therefore very portable. So we just took the Stellavox out into the middle of this big, ambient space and miked up the ground and hit it with a big metal hammer. The sound was... like concrete being hit. I can't really put it any other way.
Alan Wilder: No, I don't mind admitting it. We nicked a beat off one of Frankie's records and stuck it on our 12-inch. But I mean the actual sound, not the idea. It's not a drum sound that sells a record anyway, it's the whole song and the musical ideas. [...]
In 1986, Electronics & Music Maker magazine reported: "In response to a complaint that Depeche Mode stole a Frankie Goes To Hollywood drum sound, Frankie's engineers replied that the Frankie drum sound was actually a Linn - itself a recording!"
If you have been looking on the Internet for sounds for your E-mu Emax, you probably have found the one major repository of factory sound banks at , but have also likely noticed that it is incomplete and has not been maintained for quite some time. You may have also noticed that a great majority of sample disks located elsewhere are partially or totally corrupt.
Fortunately for you, we have made available an entirely complete archive of all known E-mu Emax factory sound banks. We have been diligent in attempting to verify the images are fully intact and that they are as accurate as possible, but it is possible that some are mislabeled. Also, there are a few unknown banks that could be missing, which are most likely Dev/Diagnostic disks (similar to the SE update, or M.U.S.T. disk). All documented/known banks are in good working order and loadable on your E-mu Emax via EMXP.
The MIDI Controller disk is designed to conveniently change the MIDI output channel simply by selecting the corresponding bank. No sounds are contained on disk, its only purpose is to facilitate using the Emax as a master keyboard with other MIDI gear.
Among the hundreds of items sold at the 2011 Alan Wilder / Depeche Mode Collection were a variety of musical equipment and zip discs pre-loaded with live sound banks originally programmed by former Depeche Mode member and Recoil founder Alan Wilder for use with the E-MU Emax and Emax II sampler keyboards during the Music For The Masses, World Violation and Devotional/Exotic tours.
The programs stored within the twenty ZIP discs sold at auction include an array (or "sound bank") of audio samples per song sourced from their respective multitrack recordings, as well as the necessary programming which dictates how and from which physical keys each sample can be played back once loaded from the appropriate Emax I or II sampler keyboards. Included on the discs are sound banks for songs versions that were only ever performed live (such as the Exotic Tour version of 'I Want You Now') as well as songs which never made the final tour set list.
The sound banks included on the ZIP discs were not the only banks made available at the time of the auction. Certain pieces of equipment, such as Alan Wilder's Emulator II were listed as including several Depeche Mode and Recoil sound banks as well as an additional collection of various sample library-sourced sounds. If you possess these unlisted Depeche Mode or Recoil sound banks, please reach out to [email protected]
The Zip discs will work in any suitable Zip drive and connect to the Emax via a scuzi cable. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to transfer everything absolutely perfectly from the original floppies. The vast majority of sounds are fully [intact] but one or two have small corruptions at the end of notes. The good news is that, with a bit of careful editing, these glitches can be removed. (Thanks goes to Tom & Simon for their help).
Please note that due to the unlisted nature of some sound banks which were sold separately from the documented zip discs, these tables list them as described on their respective auction pages, with additional information on several sound banks which are not documented there.
The parameters and values entered by Alan Wilder during the creation of the sound banks for live use are documented in detail here. The values below are specific to the EMU Emax and EMU Emax II, and may differ from equivalent settings in modern samplers.
