Emu Emax SE

“This Emax was purchased earlier this year. The power supply and OLED display have been upgraded. I also cleaned the sliders and contacts with a deoxidizing solution. Other than some cosmetic wear and tear (check photos), the unit is in good shape and plays great.

Included with the Emax is a box of floppies, which include disks sampling synthesizers like the PPG Wave and Roland TR-808, acoustic instruments, sound fx and OS disks.

Also included is a Gotek emulator drive, not shown in photos. The drive did not come with mounting hardware. I will include a usb stick containing all of the files for installing and using the drive. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

E-mu Emulator II Project Machine

“Emu Emulator II – Booting up not connecting to FD emulator.

Here is an original Emu Emulator II, the rarest of the eighties sampler/workstation synthesisers. Get your chance to have one, but only if you are willing to put time/funds into getting fixed.

This one has a new power supply fitted and boots on okay but it is not connecting to the Floppy Disk emulator from a SanDisk usb with all the patches on it. It simply shows the message ‘Boot In Progress’.

This emulator is not working, so do not expect it to, it requires hard work to connect the floppy disk to the synth itself in order to work.

It has wear and tear all visible in the photos provided, including scratches, paint work chips, dust gathered on keyboard face.

It is missing the end key, which may be purchased on Syntaur if you wish to replace.

It does not have any screws to connect it either so it is currently loose, again easily replaceable though.

I recommend this to only be purchased by an experienced synth servicer/engineer as it requires work to get up to working condition. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Emu SP-12 Turbo

“It has been maintained by a repair company.Designed in 1985 and released in 1986, the predecessor model of the SP1200, the SP12, this 12-bit lo-fi sound is unbearable!Unlike the SP1200, the SP12, which does not have an internal drive, is a model in which user samples (up to 5 seconds with TURBO) are saved in internal memory even when the power is turned off.Used by world famous HIPHOP beat makers such as Ced-Gee, DJ Premier, and Public Enemy albums! The arrival itself is quite rare now.It is no exaggeration to say that the appearance of the SP-12 changed the history of hip-hop music production.115V specification.■ Condition: There are scratches and a feeling of use, but there is no problem for normal use■ Accessories: AC cord” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Emu Emulator II+ Project Machine

“Travel back in time with this classic old synthesizer. Built by E-mu Systems in Scotts Valley, California sometime in the mid-1980s, it’s an E-mu Emulator II+ synth.

It’s all here and in pretty good cosmetic condition, but does not work. It powers up, but the LCD display reads: “Insert Diskette” and “DiskFormat Error.”

It came with two somewhat crusty old 5-1/4″ diskettes, marked “DRIVE PROTECT” and “Backwards. Jolts.” It will not read those. I tried and tried to find someone who would sell me even one good loaded diskette, but could not find anyone.

The only service I’ve done to it is clean and lubricate the disk drive control bar. I had hopes that would fix it, but no luck. As it is, the disc drives makes noise like it’s trying to read the floppy, but it just can’t grab it. The power cord is not original.

It looks like it’s complete under the hood, but I’m no expert. It came out of a long defunct home recording studio in southern Ohio.

For whatever reason, the back EMU logo had been covered with duct tape when I got. Presumably, so folks wouldn’t know what instrument was making such unusual sounds.

It has age and play wear, notably on the top housing, particularly next to the disk drive. Please see photos.

It’s being sold as a non-working repair project. Who’s up for it?

It will be well wrapped with bubblewrap and packing material and shipped in a stout new cardboard instrument box. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

E-mu Xtreme Keys XK-6

“We acquire this through in a state purchase. We were able to turn it on and hook it up to a sound system where we tested various sounds. All of the keys work and it appears that there are no functioning issues.

There is some yellowing on the keys from age. And some scuffing on the exterior. See photos.

It appears to be an excellent example of this 20+ year old synthesizer” Click here to visit listing on eBay

E-mu SP 1200

“Emu SP1200 Sampling Drum Machine Reissue 7030
Just had it serviced almost two months ago by Bruce Forat in July.
Replaced with a Brand new Floppy Drive
Put in all new tact buttons very responsive
Cleaned off gunk on the motherboard
Installed all Brand new faders
Installed a New LCD Blue Screen to read easier
Works like a champ
Long Power Cord Included
Also a Ton of Floppys blank and a lot with sound kits loaded on them

Ive owned the Isla S2400 & the Rossum 1200. They both didn’t sound as good to me as the Original SP 1200. Its probably because both of those other machines are made with different parts internally. They didn’t have the alias signaure sound it was suppose too. Also a little more polished and brighter than I was expecting compared to the original 1200.

The SP 1200 is king of grime for one. Also the supply is low and demand is high.

Overall, the magic of this machine is the “life” that can bring back to most sampled drums

If you sample into an SP at 45 +8 then pitch it down THAT to me is how you get the distinctive sound.
It may be argued that an experienced mix engineer can emulate the sound of the SP through EQ’ing. That doesn’t sit with me since I attribute the distinctive sound of the SP largely down to the converters and the effect of pitching samples down. When you consider this with the fact that it’s far more accessible for your average beat maker to buy an SP rather than employ a mix engineer to attempt to emulate that sound every time you want to make a beat. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Emu Emax II

“~~~~ Very reluctant sale, but it’s time to stream-line my overflowing studio down to fit my new studio space. ~~~~

Sample anything and it comes out fat, warm & punchy. Variable sample rate can do anything from 36k down to 11k for that beautiful true “lo-fi” tone. From the same time & same people that brought us the legendary SP1200 which had only 10 seconds sample time, no scsi port, 8 note polyphony & non-adjustable filters and a set sample rate – the Emax has extremely powerful programmable low pass resonant filters, envelopes, sample time from 20-50 seconds depending on sample rate (variable 🙂 and, key group style programs, multi note polyphony and a SCSI port on top of the internal floppy drive. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

E-mu SP 1200

The flash drive can hold up to 99 tracks.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for sell is my classic SP1200. Unfortunately it’s time for me to let it go to a new home. This is the mid 90s reissue version.

Emu SP-12 Turbo

“Up for sale is a e-mu sp12 in great condition. Just got it back from Bruce forat last September. Everything thing works, no issues. It has a small dent on the front right corner which happened during shipping. Other than that small cosmetic issue this machine is good to go for another 10-20 years. I hate to get rid of it but I need the money for a home project. I also have the receipt that I can ship with it. This way you know what you’re paying for. Bruce put in the blue screen which makes it much easier to read and he also installed input monitoring so you can hear what you sample as you sample. This is a 1500$ upgrade. If you’ve been looking to get one in good shape this for you.”
