E-mu SP 12 Turbo

“Original SP12 TURBO Sampling Drum Machine. 12 bit sampler for true lo-fi sound! This one has the turbo upgrade for a whopping 5 seconds of sampling time.

Very good condition, recently serviced by Forat which included the blue screen upgrade. Have not used it since the service, so this SP12 is in incredible condition. Everything works.

Case is in great condition, never been dropped. The only cosmetic imperfection is two white marks between slider 1 and 2 (see pic). Otherwise great. Corners and sides are round and smooth, no dents. Some tape residue on the right side (see pic), I’m sure it can be taken off.

“Please note: NY State residents will be charged 8.88% sales tax on checkout.

This E-Mu SP-12 Turbo (5 seconds total sampling time) is in excellent working and physical condition.

This particular unit has 6 switches on the back that can turn the filter on channels 1-6 on or off, for audio coming out of the individual channel outs and the mix out.

I just did the following (I have experience with SP12’s and SP1200’s—I have done the same to several prior to this one.):

-Disassembled and cleaned all button and pad contacts.

-Overhauled (completely disassembled down to individual components, cleaned, lubricated, and reassembled) all 8 slide potentiometers

-Installed a new transflective wide viewing angle FSTN LED screen (brighter than the original backlit display, and does not use an inverter for power so there is less potential noise in the audio). The screen is brighter than appears in the pics, I used a flash for the pics and it’s hard to capture the brightness of a backlit screen with a flash.

-Installed a new faceplate overlay and backplate overlay.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Works great – excellent condition – a rare and still powerful machine with that classic crunch of 12 bit goodness.

I have owned this machine for many years and used it on many recordings and even in live performance. It is precious to me but I have too many beatmaking machines and thought it was time to let this one go.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

-Custom sky blue rubberized fader caps.

-Volume, Metronome, and Sample knobs replaced with brand new knobs.

-All buttons and fader housings pulled apart and cleaned inside before reassembly. All buttons work with 1 gentle button press now. (*drum pad 5 requires being pressed a bit harder than the others but is fully functional).” Click here to search for synths on eBay
