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

“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.

I will also include a custom made dust cover and plenty of blank and unwrapped floppy discs. Also included are disks with classic sounds.

Forat upgrades include:

“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.”
