emax “100% functional – it has been fully tested and it works great! The LCD backlight works too! It’s in good cosmetic condition – the front panel is especially very clean – please see the photos attached to this listing. (Also note: There are a few minor scratches from normal use on the top & back of the unit, and some tape residue on the top & side. The rubber middle portion of the power button is missing – but this does not impact functionality). Comes with the power cord, OS 2.13 floppy disc, a free external zip-drive with a top-quality 25-pin cable. Also included for free is a zip-disc full of great patches to get you started! ” Link

emuemaxii “Here is a classic and sweet sampler in amazing condition. The legendary EMAX II. This Emax II is in full working condition… ALL keys, buttons, sliders, jacks, disk drive works as they should with no operational issues. As you can see from the pics, it looks fantastic as well. It has had VERY little use. The keys feel new too! Comes with a few disks and a Getting Started manual.

We have used this emax in our studio on a few sessions. Anything we sampled into it simply sounded WAY better than the original source. The EmaxII just does something sweet to audio sampled through it.” Link

emaxii“Unfortunately I have no good way to test this synth. It’s an EMU EMAX II, model number 2212 and it powers on and lights up. I have no disks or instructions, so if there’s a way to get it to play without them, I’m all ears. Cosmetics are solid for its age. Only thing that struck me as odd is that there’s no feet on the bottom. Guessing an earlier owner removed them for some reason? Either way, it is sold as pictured.” Link

I took this in on trade.

I have pictured it powered up and asking for a disc , but alas I have no discs for this machine.

Because of that I am unable to test it.

Please see pictures for cosmetic condition.

” THIS NO RESERVE AUCTION IS FOR ONE
EMULATOR / EMU EMAX II SAMPLING KEYBOARD / SYNTHESIZER, WHICH IS NO LONGER WORKING.
IT BLINKED OUT WHILE PLAYING AND NOW IT DOESN’T POWER-UP. IT WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED, SO THERE IT IS, FOR REPAIR.

* EXCELLENT COSMETIC CONDITION, REALLY CLEAN,
* THIS ONE HAS THE MAX AMOUNT OF MEMORY ADDED AND WHEN POWERED ON, HAS A BRIGHT BLUE BACKLIT DISPLAY.
* IT ALSO HAS A BUILT-IN HARD DRIVE WITH 99 BANKS OF VOICES ON IT. WHEN POWERED ON, IT BOOTS FROM THE HARD DRIVE RIGHT AWAY.
* THE HARD DRIVE WAS ADDED ABOUT 12 YEARS AGO, IT JUST PLUGGED IN AND I HAD HUNDREDS OF VOICES IMMEDIATELY ON POWER-UP.
* THE STANDARD 3.5″ DISK DRIVE WORKS FINE, IT WAS RARELY USED.

JUST TO BE CLEAR, IT STOPPED POWERING ON…………………..IT’S DEAD AND WILL NEED ATTENTION.” Link

Emax II, Emu @ 20 May 2014, Comments Off on Emu Emax II

“This synth is in great condition. It has some light surface scratches here and there and a couple of light rub marks, but nothing too major. It has a slight bow/warp to the frame and casing, but this doesn’t affect the keybed or any other buttons. It has a brand new drive, so it’s ready for years to come. The bezel of the new drive creates a small empty slot just above the drive. The volume fader doesn’t work properly… It seems to only function as an on/off switch, and not as a gradual volume adjustment. The slider cap is missing from this fader. Other than that, this keyboard is great. Comes with OS 2.14.” Link

” Awesome vintage sampler from EMU with factory hard drive containing 94 classic samples from the venerable Emulator II.
Bought this as yet another project but haven’t got round to doing anything with it.

First the good news:
– It works and the hard drive loads fine.
– Screen is a little dim but usable
– Loads of classic sounds (apparently a number of these ended up in the Proteus but compressed so these are better)
– Warmest digital filters *ever*
– Nice arpeggiator
– Spectrum Synthesis!

Now the not so good news:
– Floppy is erratic (these are about 30 quid on eBay)
– No cage for hard drive (this was cable tied to case when I got it but I’ll remove it for safe transit). Should be easy enough to make.
– It’s noisy (actual machine not signal path). This might be normal but as I haven’t got anything to compare it I thought I’d mentioned it.
– No rack ears.
– Missing cover for power button.

I’m therefore selling as spares/repair. Very useable and could be perfect with a little TLC/money.” Link

“E-mu Emax II Rack mit der seltenen 8 MB Speicherweiterung und einem Syquest EZ Drive mit 2 Medien

Bei dem hier angebotenem Emax II handelt es sich um die Rackversion, Modell 2213 (Stereosampling) auf 8 MB erweitert.
Der Zustand ist gebraucht, aber gut. Er hat Spuren vom Rackeinbau in Form von Kratzern auf der Ober- und Unterseite, außerdem ist die Spitze des An/Aus Schalters abgebrochen, ein “Phänomen”, welches sich leider bei sehr vielen Emax und Emax 2 Rackmodellen findet. Liegt wohl an der exponierten Lage des Schalters, weshalb er wohl häufiger den einen oder anderen Stoß abbekommt … Der Schalter funktioniert aber problemlos, diese Macke ist also nur kosmetisch. Die Front sieht ansonsten sehr gut aus, es sind auch noch beide Fader-/Sliderkappen vorhanden.
Das Display funktioniert und hat noch eine gute Leuchtkraft, das Diskettenlaufwerk funktioniert anstandslos – liest, schreibt und formatiert – ohne merkwürdige Geräusche zu machen. Das interne Netzteil hat bisher auch keine Probleme gemacht. Sämtliche Bedienelemente (Fader, Taster) sprechen einwandfrei an.

Lieferumfang:
– E-mu Emax 2 Rack mit 8 MB
– Diskette mit dem letzten OS 2.14
– 1 Kaltgerätekabel
– 1 externes Syquest EZ-Drive mit zwei 135 MB Datenträgern (deutlich zuverlässiger als Ziplaufwerke und ihre Disketten), das Netzteil für das EZ-Drive und ein
SCSI Kabel (50 Pol zu 25 Pol)
– Handbuch als PDF und weitere Soundbänke auf CD
– Ein 8 fach Multicorekabel Klinke/Klinke (mono)” Link

“very good condition. A few very minor marks. I personally think you’d have a hard time finding one much better.

Has 4 meg of memory (they only usually have 2, and uber rarely 8).

Internal hard drive fitted. It will boot off this so no need to use floppies. It will hold 99 banks (Not sure how large the hard drive is, but that makes no difference, as 99 is max num of banks).

Floppy works but is unreliable (with my floppies at least).

I will include some sounds on the HD to get you going.

SCSI on the rear.

“This listing is for an EMU EMAX II Vintage Digital Sampling Keyboard.

The unit is in good condition for the age, with a few marks on the casing as is common with instruments of this age, particulary on the casing above the floppy disk drive (as can be seen in the pictures). The pitch and modulation wheels are sunk into the casing along with the disk drive. These are loose inside the casing, and move around quite a bit.

The unit powers up but the display repeats the screen ‘EMU-SYSTEMS INC, CHECKING SCSI’ and runs through the numbers 1 – 7. We have not tried this with a boot disk, as the disk drive is loose in the casing as previously mentioned, and we do not wish to casue any further damage to the machine.

This unit is sold as a faulty unit for spares or repair. The plate on the rear reads:

“My starting bid price is a great deal and much cheaper than what I paid ($264). There’s nothing wrong with it that I could find. It has a blue LED screen and seems to work fine from my limited use. It boots fine every time and I never had a problem loading sounds from over 60 Emax II disks and I sampled the ringer on my phone by plugging in a microphone and it played on the keyboard with no problem. (I had never used a sampler before because I’m a more of a drummer) but, a friend of mine told me that this is what Depeche Mode used and I’m a big fan so I thought that I could make their music after I had been watching a guy on YouTube. His name is dx5. google him: dx5 depeche mode and you’ll see what I’m talking about. He uses the Emax 2 keyboard in many of his latest updated versions of Depeche cover songs.

Yes, the huge collection of disks is included (I tested almost all and discovered that about 75 disks or so are formatted for the Emax II) And the remaining few hundred are formatted for either the Emax 1000 or Akai samplers, which can be reformatted. I accept PayPal only. It ships with power cord and I have a link to the pdf. Emax II user manual on-line if needed. I have to mail the disks in a separate box. The disks weigh 22 lbs. I will pack it very carefully and ship it UPS ground. Thank you for your time.

My Emax 2 has stereo sampling and memory is 2MB, model #2212.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
