Emu, SP-1200 @ 20 June 2017, Comments Off on Emu SP1200 Project Machine

“For sale is an Emu SP1200 drum machine. It’s in excellent cosmetic condition, with only some minor scratches on side and bottom. This is a reissue version so the power supply doesn’t get hot like the grey original versions. Has the classic model 7030 filter chips. The screen is bright and easy to read.

It’s fully functional except the sampler section is not working. When I try to sample, the input shows up as overload and the pad I sample to only plays back as a click. I can hear the what I want to sample through the sample-input but it doesn’t end up on the sampled pad. I’ve priced it lower accordingly. This might be a simple easy fix, reissues in as clean cosmetic shape as this typically sell for $3500 – $4000, so you could get yourself a nice deal here.

All the buttons and pads trigger perfectly, they were cleaned before listing.
Internal electronics look very clean, no rust or grime or funky smells.

Includes 10 sample disks with sounds & OS 1.2.
Even without the sample section you can still make some beats using the included sound disks.”

“Original grey model classic vintage drum machine in very good condition and large sound library. Everyone already knows all about why this beast is still at the top of its class and nothing can duplicate it’s unique sound no matter how hard the software plugins engineers have failed time after time again. Included are 85 disks custom sound library with soul samples from vinyl and drum chops and breaks and individual kicks and snares and hi hats samples from vinyl records all ready and setup . Also 16 Kid Nepro drum sounds disks. Lots of loops and unique samples with that classic boom bap tempo ….Also the sp1200 instructional CD and a printed copy of the owners manual and the service manual. Also included is a 12ft monster 8 output cable and the power cord. All buttons and sliders and knobs and display check good and the floppy drive is very smooth and quiet and loads fine…It also comes with the stand shown in the photos. Don’t miss out !!!” Link

1200 “All buttons work. Pads are responsive and springy, no double triggers. New tact switches (small black buttons) replaced using Cardas silver quad eutectic solder (the good stuff). The floppy drive works great and the screen is bright. All outputs work properly as well as the sample input. Faders are straight and smooth. Bottom right corner by the disk drive is partially slightly melted, see pics. All disks tested and working.” Link

emu-sp-1200 “This is my E-MU SP1200 that I purchased from DJ homicide in 2003. I have had it in my smoke free mixing and mastering studio since then. Unfortunately, I have to part ways with it to buy a mastering EQ. The unit is in 100% perfect working condition and sounds amazing. All of the filters, knobs and buttons are in working order and the unit works wonderfully. The only issue is that Homicide is written on the back. There are a few scratches / blemishes on the sides, but nothing drastic.

I am selling the Unit with (132) SP1200 OS discs with drums and samples from classic rap sounds to vocal chops, 808s, everything. Some of it is my stuff, some is from Homicide’s and the rest is from others DJs/producers I purchased them from. There are a LOT of gems in there. Over 1000 resampled sounds. The unit also comes with the original manual as well. The manual is a little beaten up, but it is really nice to read.” Link

sp 1200 “Completely restored and fully functional Emu SP1200.

Sent off for refurb by Allen at Synthspa, a guy who really knows his stuff.

Perfect working condition. Allen cleaned and retrimmed all buttons and sliders so no double triggers on this one.

He also went through the internals and replaced any and all caps and opamps etc in need of replacing.

Won’t see a better unit than this and in great cosmetic condition also.
The corrosion you see on the jacks is ONLY on the washers as Allen cleaned and replaced all inputs jacks.

Comes with start up disk and power cable.” Link

sp-1200 “Listing a vintage 7030 by E-mu that was passed on to me and I have no use for it. Item is missing the Fuse and the fuse holder. I believe this to be a 2nd generation unit. The unit will not power on without the fuse at the moment and will need to be replaced. I was informed the unit was in perfect working order until the fuse was lost. Please take a moment to view the images and you can see this unit was hot abused or nor does it show excessive wear. This is being listed as is, I believe the fuse and the fuse holder is all it needs to function. The unit will come with one disk and power chord. ” Link

used sp1200 “For sale is my Emu Sp1200 Drum Machine reissue version from ’95. This Sp1200 is in excellent shape. Everything plays perfectly. It just serviced it before sale including cleaning all the buttons, pads, knobs and sliders so everything is super clean and triggering smoothly. It’s fully functional and ready to make beats in your studio. Disk drive works great. Backlight is super bright and easy to read. Cosmetically it’s in super nice shape with only some minor wear, so check out the pictures below to make sure you like it.

The reissue versions are a bit rarer and tend to go for higher price. They are desirable because they have auto-switching worldwide power (you don’t have to worry about transformers or changing fuses, it will automatically work worldwide without you having to do anything). They also don’t heat up like the OG versions, so you don’t have to worry about heating or power supply failure or any issues that the OG ones had due to getting too hot. Additionally, considering they came out years later, they’ll have been around less and will generally have less wear and tear than the the 80s units. This reissue still has the classic filter chips just like the original.

Includes Power cable, 20 sound disks and 10 New old Stock blank disks for saving your own samples to.

Sound disks are samples direct from original drum machines including
Roland TR808
Roland TR909 (3 disks)
Roland TR606
Roland TR727
MFB Tanzbar (2 disks)
Jomox Xbase 888 & 999
Vermona DRM1 mk2 (2 disks)
SP12 (2 disks)
Roland R8 w/ variety of cards like Electronic, Jazz Brush (5 disks)
Acidlab Miami

Disks come loaded with OS 1.2. The hardest thing about using the SP1200 is creating a killer sound library. With all the sound disks included you can get straight to beat making.” Link

sp_1200 “This Auction is for a used E-mu SP1200 Sampler/Sequencer

This is a functional unit with minor wear and tear.

What’s Wrong with it:

– The display screen has some small wear in the middle that doesn’t affect what you can see. Its just some scuffing it looks like.

– Drum pad #1 and drum pad #5 are broken. #1 you can still use by tapping the wires together that are in the button itself. (Just the top is broken off) #5 is actually missing. In the service manual it gives a part number SW301. They are approximately $7. ” Link

LCD is bright and original (which means this unit has very low hours of actual use). Pads are CLEAN. Pots are TIGHT and SMOOTH. Comes with a few OS disks, original manual and cables.

If you’ve been waiting patiently for a nice one, here you go. This is no doubt one of the cleanest you’ll see this year.” Link

sp1200” Fully functional SP1200 O.S. disk included. Backlight is out but screen is viewable. The number pad can be a little touchy but all the numbers work. Sometimes you need to hit a number more than once for it to register. Nothing contact cleaner can’t fix. The outputs are a little dirty but they just need to be cleaned and they all function fine. This is an old sampler so some wear is to be expected. Still a beast of a machine and a must-have for someone looking for the 90s hip-hop sound. Sold AS-IS. No returns.” Link
