Description
the E-mu Proteus 1000 is the composer’s dream machine. The power of Proteus 1000 begins with 64 voice polyphony, which means that 64 different instrument lines can be played at once! And there’s much more as you will soon discover.

Proteus 1000 contains two user-upgradable sound SIMM sockets, allowing you to mix and match sound sets according to your needs. New sounds can be added as easily as plugging in a new 16MB or 32MB SIMM module and up to 64MB of sounds can be added! Each sound set has been meticulously crafted to be the best of its kind. Samples are matched across the keyboard, perfectly looped, and rich in harmonic texture.

Proteus contains 512 user presets and can hold literally thousands of factory presets. (ROM presets are automatically added when sound SIMMs are installed. As an example, a 32 MB SIMM may contain up to 1024 ROM presets.) Proteus 1000’s Sound Navigator is a major improvement to the main screen that makes it easy to find the exact sound you want from the thousands available. It’s powerful, yet simple to use.

Of course the real power of Proteus 1000 becomes apparent when you synthesize your own sounds. The extremely flexible yet easy to use, 4-layer synthesizer voices make it easy to build sounds of any kind. Layers can be switched or crossfaded using key position, velocity, real-time controllers or any modulation source. Proteus 1000 also contains 50 different types of 2nd to 6th order resonant & modeling filters which are used to shape and modify the raw waveforms.

The 64 modulation sources include three multistage envelopes and two LFOs per layer, as well as full MIDI control over virtually every parameter. The digital patch bay, with 24 cords per layer, (and 12 more cords per preset) lets you connect modulation sources to 64 destinations in any imaginable way.

Four front panel real-time controllers give you control over 12 userselectable parameters. The real-time knobs can adjust multiple parameters at once, allowing complex levels of control. For example, one knob can simultaneously turn up filter cutoff, while detuning one sample, and adjusting the release time of the volume envelope. Virtually every synth parameter in the Proteus 1000 is controllable using the real-time knobs or by any internal or external control source.

Once you have created your preset, you can add richness to your sound using Proteus 1000’s 24-bit stereo effects. You can choose a different effects setup for each preset from over 60 algorithms. Proteus 1000’s effects section is actually two separate effects processors with control over each wet/dry mix level on four effects sends. Effects Processor “A” contains primarily ambiance algorithms like reverb and delays, while effects processor “B” contains primarily spectral algorithms such as chorus, flange, phase, distortion, and delay. Effects can be linked to each preset or used globally to further enhance your sound.

Other features include multiple solo, voice assignment and performance modes for expressive control, 12 user-definable alternate tunings, and, of course, an extensive MIDI implementation.
