Arturia Emulator II V License Virtual Instrument

Simulation of an 80's sampler featuring gritty lo-fi textural sampling, high-fidelity 8-bit playback, and smooth analog filters - software effect
MFR# 1090-87

Product Description

The Arturia Emulator II V is a redesign and virtual emulation of an iconic sampler instrument that graced every ‘80s stage, the Emulator II took sampling and made it playable. Emulator II V reimagines this multitimbral classic in all its gritty lo-fi glory, complete with high-fidelity 8-bit playback and smooth analog filters.

Emulator II V is a multitimbral sampling machine that brings E-Mu Systems’ seminal digital workhorse back to life in all its nostalgic glory - with a slick modern edge. Its unique combination of high-fidelity 8-bit sound, warm analog filter, and instantly-recognisable sample library is sure to spark instant creativity, just as the original once did. When you want lo-fi grain, ‘80s sheen, or a sampling flow that stands out from the crowd, look no further.

CHANGING THE SAMPLING GAME

An instrument that graced every ‘80s line-up. An icon from the early days of sampling. A unique character that helped define the sound of a decade and beyond. The Emulator II’s digital charm and tactile layout made it the musical weapon of choice for everyone from Depeche Mode to Trent Reznor.

The Emulator series was the work of E-mu Systems in the 1980s. Upon release, the Emulator II was met with critical acclaim, combining the novel versatility of sampling with the familiar layout of a classic synthesizer.

At the helm of E-mu systems was the legendary Dave Rossum. A California native, Rossum is now a veteran of the industry, and considered among the most influential figures in electronic instrument design.

His pioneering work combining analog richness and digital precision in modular systems made the synth world sit up and listen, and the company went on to collaborate with the likes of Sequential and Oberheim. It was when the ‘80s hit, however, that Rossum struck gold.

SAMPLER HEART, SYNTH BRAIN

Instrument first, sampler second. Part of what made the Emulator hardware so popular was the fact that it behaved like a synthesizer, but with the flexibility of using samples - its multitimbrality meant up to 8 samples could be played at once on your keyboard.

WHAT WAS ADDED

Emulator II V’s interface is designed to be authentic and immersive - but there’s more than meets the eye.

Zoom in on the built-in display to access in-depth sampling editing, expressive modulation, and a suite of FX that go beyond the original - and that’ll cement Emulator II V as your favorite outside-the-box sampler.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
