E-mu Orbit 9090
The Orbit is first in E-mu's new line of dance modules. This is strictly engineered for the techno artist. It has 8 MB of samples of all the great vintage analog sounds plus many familiar and typical sounds used in house, hip hop, trance, and techno.
It includes an essential digital VCF-like filter that is (on many presets) usually controlled from the modulation wheel on your keyboard controller! It's great for filling tracks with lush sweeping pads, or trancing along a 303 bassline pattern and filtering away. It is a beautiful golden single-space rack unit with a big easy to read LCD. Its sounds are, well they're digital so they are a little harsh and 'tinny' but add a little 'verb and some delay and it sounds damn good! It is already being used by lots of techno artists around the world including Todd Terry, Roni Size, ATB, and Orbital.
