   0 reviews  -  1358 views

    E-mu Drumulator was the sample-based drum-machine by E-mu Systems. It was introduced in 1983 at a price of US$995. The Drumulator was E-mu's attempt at creating a rhythm machine like the Linn LM-1 that was better and cheaper. It was used a lot in early 1980s in synthpop and Italo-disco productions. In 1984, Digidrums released special EPROMs for Drumulator, which included the Rock Drums set that was used on Tears for Fears' hit "Shout".
