Author Sandro Pozi ( ago)
The sound on 6:43 is so various everybody knows of course: in the end
ofTerminator 3! when arnold going in to the vulcanic lava destroy him self.

Author onsese joo ( ago)
Add Linn drum machine and Yamaha DX7 and you'll have the culprits of the
80's sound.

Author ShreadTheWeapon ( ago)
That piano sound is pretty hi fidelity for 8-bit samples. Same with the
harp patch.

I dig the T2 reference. That score was a great plug for this keyboard.

Author Andrew N ( ago)
Cant believe how good this is sounding even today. Sure it doesnt have a
10" touchdisplay, or 10GB of ram, etc. Its just do what it does, and it
does it great!.

I used to own an Emulator 2+ and I sold it long ago because I convinced
myself to live in the woods like Thoreau. Now i have a recording studio and
I want an Emulator again. I just don't know which one to buy off of EBAY.
Can you guide me? I would appreciate it very much. I was thinking the E64.
Please guide me to the right E-mu. Thanks John

The cool thing about a K2000 is that you can do all of this with just as
good quality for about $400.

This one is for Tangerine Dream fans of the mid- to late-eighties!

Author sonidoy postpro ( ago)
Is this available in akai cd format or wav ?

Author alwaysuptil1 ( ago)
Where do I get these sounds for my E2? 

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
EMXP is available free on the web. Just do a search. SD files appear to be
widely distributed these days but please don't ask me to as they're not
mine to do so.

Author AndereX Buck ( ago)
Where i can find the sd files and the emxp program?

Author Andrew Piatek ( ago)
Gosh, I'd love to have this unit so much more than any of the craptop/VST
combo in the world. Emulator II libraries are epic.

Author neroangelo8 ( ago)

Author scott seewhale ( ago)
wow I would love to know what patch is at 1:03. Have an Emulator II but
cannot figure it out for the life of me

Author phu303 ( ago)
Damn.. i need this synth..

Author kz1000ps ( ago)
LOL the Terminator theme!! Man this thing is a beast!

Author Matthew Mann ( ago)
But where would one get the SD files?

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
Hi, it's a Behringer UB2222FX-PRO mixer reverb.

Author The surreal McCoy ( ago)
what effects processor is this?

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
No, the PAP sounds are not from the libraries. I included them in the demo
before decided to put up here as a library sounds demo. Sorry for

Author Steve Franklin ( ago)
Not sure why the chaps here who want these sounds so bad don't just buy the
complete library in WAV format on cd from eBay. I bought the EII & the EIII

Author alienorbiter ( ago)
Ah, this beauty sang on so many of my favourite songs. Thanks, Emu.

Author douro20 ( ago)
The choir sounds in "Broken Wings" was from this sampler, as well as most
of the sound effects.

Author douro20 ( ago)
One thing that makes this 8-bit sampler sound so good is its low-pass
24db/oct 4-pole analog filter. It can also do simple wavetable synthesis.

Author 3100nfs ( ago)
Hey these sounds are so nice! Can I have them in SF2 format?

Author AnalogAudio1 ( ago)
This is an excellent library...

Author Riccardo Galatolo ( ago)
I bought an EII but I have not a shred of library ... even after years of
legal trouble you may have to copy me the lbrary?

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
Hi, yes but I'm not able to distribute them (I don't own or have the rights
to the sounds to distribute), sorry.

Author Riccardo Galatolo ( ago)
good morning ... I kindly know if you have the original library of EII, and
sounds of choirs human shakuachi, marimbas, and Liquid stack. are available
on floppy 5:25? the price? I can have a list of sounds? thanks and excuse
my bad translation!

とりあえず お気に入り 追加。

Author WorshipDarkWave ( ago)
are you kidding me? If you would take shitty compressed 'youtube video
quality' audio and download it to your laptop then edit it in a program
like Audacity then plug it into ANY sampler via the laptop mini jack
soundcard to a sample on a machine like and Emulator you have to have your
fucking head checked.

Author Banksmusic ( ago)
I hear Depeche Mode! - 0:31

Author Eric Parisot ( ago)
I can't stop listening this demo, it's so wonderful and the sound is so
pure and powerfull !

Author Eric Parisot ( ago)

tube" video go on this place > bestvideodownloader - dot - com Its free and

2:35 "Wheels". Why thank you, Emu. I was wondering what the hell those were

Author Fausto Villanova ( ago)
5:15 - Take My Breath Way - TopGun

Author mansionpentouse ( ago)
My Yamaha EX-5 has that sound. I recognized it as an Emulator patch (well,
*sample*) right away! :D

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
Sample the chords? That'll sound cr*p if played back on a single note !?
Much easier to load the SD files into EMXP and convert into whatever format
you want (that's supported).

Author Jason Caldwell ( ago)
if u guys want the sounds... step 1. download audacity. step 2. record this
demo off youtube. step 3. load the sounds u want into any DAW. step 4.
sample the chords.

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
It was a disk called Mister E. I've never been able to clarify which
library it belongs to. Ultravox used it on a track called Dreams, other
have used it too. It's also featured within the UVI Emulation II product
which is demo'd here.

Author swisstony123 ( ago)
Even the one after it is very close

Author swisstony123 ( ago)
Please can you tell me what disk the sound from 2.08 is from, does it have
a name? Or could you tell me anything about it please, I've been searching
for it for years, I would REALLY appreciate any info you could give. Thank
you in advance.

Author danbel1967 ( ago)
5.54 fantastic sound...

Author Leonel Schultz ( ago)
You can use your keyboard connected by USB (or midi) to the Kontakt library
with the Emulator II sounds. Just Google it!

Author jérôme Lavrador ( ago)
Hello JMPSynth, can you me telling if a sampler is important in a synth
configuration, personnaly I only use Analog vintage synth but I ask me if a
Emax or Emulator isn't good to finish a different set of synth Let me know

3:21 hmmm is it blue monday?

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
Yep !

Author JamieVegas ( ago)
Where did you find the drums from 'People are People'? Were those just
sliced out of the song itself?

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
Sorry can't remember on the pad but sure I've been asked this before, check
comments below.... Will get back to you if can find previous comments
relating to it. The Legend one is just named choir, again can't remember
what is named on the original floppy disk sorry. I can send it to you in
Sound Designer format if you want?

Author veltis100 ( ago)
JMPSynth, could you please me what patch you used to play the Terminator
song with as i've been going through all my floppys and can't find it!!!
Also what patch was used for the Choir sound from the Legend soundtrack
"Darkness", Sorry to ask but i've just started to use my emulator 2 again
and have 7 boxes of discs and its had to find the correct ones!!! Thanks

Author boleplissken ( ago)
effin awesome! great sound!! especially enjoyed 'Black Celebration" and
"Terminator" at the end.

Author smartmarvel16 (913 years ago)
Ok, thanks!!!

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
FDD - Floppy disk drive. In this case two ancient 5.25" drives ! Yes,
certain old Macs work with Sound Designer and the EII for loading and
editing samples and banks. Make sure your EII is a Rev 1 or you need to
complete an upgrade to the EII interface port.

Author smartmarvel16 ( ago)
Thankyou! So, I can use an old Mac to store my samples and then connect it
to the EII's RS422 to load samples into EII, right? And what is a FDD?

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
No, it's an RS422 interface originally designed for use with an OMI CD rom
drive, very rare and unlikely to be working these days. Port may be used
for other connections, these days it tends to be old Mac serial ports for
use with Sound Designer. Like an external hard drive for loading samples,
far easier than the FDD's.

Author smartmarvel16 ( ago)
Hi! The Emulator II has a SCSI interface to connect a cd-rom drive and load
samples? Thankyou

Author 1990scottsdale ( ago)
Is that the terminator song at 6:20 lol! This Synthesizer is awesome

Author Stars Shine Darkly ( ago)
i did not expect t his to sounds this good

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
Sure it was called Moog Bass. Will try and find it on the Mac when the gear
is setup again (currently packed away).

Author cbank2012 ( ago)
Where's the bass patch at at 4:08? Not finding it in the EMU library or my
OMI discs

Author Jez4prez ( ago)
wow 2:05 to 2:52 reminds me exactly of something you'll hear on the album
'Lifeforms' by The Future Sound of London.

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
It's a background sound/riff from People are People by Depeche Mode. Think
you can hear it more clearly towards the end of the song (from memory).

Author JMPSynth ( ago)
Yeah, think your right about synth stack, it's a split preset with the top
part on the same soundbank.
