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.”

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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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.

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.

Emu SP 1200

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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
