E-mu Systems Proteus FX

   (0 reviews)

Proteus FX is a musical instrument whose sounds are based on actual digital recordings of “real” instruments. In this way, Proteus FX is very similar to a sampling instrument. With the Proteus FX, we have done the sampling for you and loaded it with a collection of the cleanest 16 bit sounds ever sampled.

Proteus FX contains a massive 8 Megabytes of the highest quality 16 bit Rock/Pop and Orchestral samples selected from the Emulator III sound library and stored in ROMs for instant access. We have included everything you need to play and compose in a wide range of contemporary styles. You simply plug in and play.

But this is only the beginning. Proteus FX gives you the ability to literally take these sounds apart and reassemble them into an almost limitless number of entirely new sounds, combining parts of one sound with another or with any of a selection of digital waveforms also stored on ROM. For example, the attack of a flute can be faded out as a vibe tone is faded in, giving you a completely new sound! The monophonic and true stereo 16 bit samples are arranged into 512 preset locations, 256 of which are userprogrammable.

Proteus FX features 32 voice polyphony, allowing you to take full advantage of its layering capabilities (up to 8 sounds on each key) and its ability to respond multitimbrally to all 16 MIDI channels makes it ideally suited for multitrack sequencing and composing using a MIDI sequencer. Other features include two studio-quality effects processors with 27 different effects, a user definable alternate tuning, and of course, an extensive MIDI implementation.
