What sampler can read emax disks?

Postby kurtjimi27 » Sun Nov 26, 2006 11:08 pm

Do any other emu samplers read emax I disks? Besides the emax II of course. My Emax died and I dont know if I want to spend the money to fix it or buy another one.

hello. as far as i know the entire Emulator 4 series (E4XT, E64/00, E5000 ((Ultras included)) can read Emax II files. i'm not quite sure about the ESI series.. however i would be inclined to believe that they can as well.
i hope this was helpful.


edit: ahem... i just noticed you said "Emax I".... sorry about that.
you know, i'm actually not positive that the Emax II will read original
Emax files... there were quite a few changes made, like the switch to a
digital filter, etc... you might have better luck looking into the Emulator III
(if you can find one) though I wasn't able to find any info saying that it
would or wouldn't read Emax samples.

Thanks for the helpful info. What about the EIIIX, does that also read emax II. I think I'll just move up to the emax II for now because I know it'll read the 12bit.

now you can transfer emax2 samples via midi to other higher end emus, but according to my some of my emu manuals the emax II is as low as the modern emu samplers go in backwards compatability.

sorry.

just a thought...you could put your disks in a emaxII save them to a emax 2 formatted disk, then put them in your computer. ass backwards to say the least, but i dont anything about chickensys (hint, check there)

What died on your machine? If it was the floppy, that can be replaced easily. Otherwise, I'd just seek out another original one - they're next to nothing used and they're so plentiful. Either that or "upgrade" to an Emax-II - I like mine because of the backwards compatibility but miss the better filter (don't get me wrong, the II's digital one is very nice) and the variety of sampling rates (the II only goes down to 20khz) - I love the lowest setting on the Emax-I, so crunchy and metallic.

it was the power supply and I am going to fix it! I got it for its bad fidelity which is why it sounds so cool (i agree the lowest sampling rate is best). I'll probably get an esi-32 for upgrading. much cheaper than an emax II and more flexible plus all those cool morph filters.
