E-me EIIIX Sampling Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  1347 views

    The EIIIX is the latest in the long line of E-mu sampling products,
    beginning with the Emulator I and evolving into the EII and EIII. In
    developing the EIIIX, we have retained the logical and easy-to-use
    user interface of the EIII and enhanced it with our all-digital, state-of-the-art G-chip and H-chip hardware. The G-chip allows noisefree
    sample transposition over a ±5 octave range. The H-chips retain
    the warm character of analog filters while keeping the signal
    entirely in the digital domain.

    The EIIIX can be used as an EIII expander unit or as a stand-alone
    sample playback system. In addition, the EIIIX is fully compatible
    with the original EIII and has full access to the huge library of
    sounds available from E-mu and other sources.

    Some of the major enhancements from the original EIII are as

    + 32 megabytes of sample RAM (non-proprietary, user installable)
    + 32 audio channels (16 stereo)
    + 8 polyphonic, balanced audio outputs
    + Up to 999 samples per bank
    + Up to 256 presets per bank
    + All digital signal path for lower noise and improved reliability
    + Digital I/O (S/PDIF, AES/EBU)
    + Improved user interface simplifies multi-timbral operation

    One difference from the original EIII is in the deliberate omission of
    analog sample inputs. We have discovered that most people do not
    sample their own sounds and we feel that you should not have to
    pay for a expensive feature that you may not use. Furthermore, the
    widespread use of portable DAT recorders incorporating digital I/
    O makes built-in A/D converters redundant. Any audio gear
    incorporating an A/D converter and digital I/O can function as a
    sampling “front end” for the EIIIX.

    You should plan on purchasing a mass storage device for use with
    the EIIIX, if you don't already own one. When dealing with large
    banks of up to 32 MB, a floppy disk drive simply doesn't cut it even
    for back-up. An optical or hard disk is an absolute must!

    The EIIIX is an extremely powerful and reliable, fourth generation
    instrument. We at E-mu Systems sincerely hope it will help you
    realize and further your musical dreams.
