 - E-MU Emax Collector Edition
E-MU Emax Collector EditionDigital Sound FactoryPresets / Patches2012-07-02

The Emax was essentially a complete replication of the Emulator II using custom E-mu chips instead of standard off the shelf silicon chips. This new engineering increased reliability, and reduced the cost of manufacture. The sample resolution was the same 12-bits companded into 8-bits of memory, the samples were still monophonic, but the maximum sample rate was increased to 42kHz. Depeche Mode switched to using Emax's from Emulator II's on tour, and the Emax SE HD's can be seen and heard in use on the 1988 USA tour video '101'. The Emax Kontakt collection represents the extensive library of samples and instruments that were originally available on 3.5" disks. Notable Users: •Depeche Mode - all three keyboard players can be seen operating Emax keyboards on their 1989 live film, 101 •Faith No More - Can be seen in the 'Epic' video •Ice MC - Can be seen in the 'Easy' video •KMFDM - Used an Emax •Los Prisioneros •Meat Beat Manifesto •Mouse on Mars •Nine Inch Nails - used an Emax SE extensively on Pretty Hate Machine •Die Krupps - Emax II •Orbital •Saint Etienne - credited with using the Emax on their 1991 album "Foxbase Alpha" •Skinny Puppy •Steve Roach •Tony Toni Tone •U2 •Tom Waits - credited with using the Emax on his 1993 album "The Black Rider" •The Whispers Categories include Keyboards & Synthesizers, Orchestral, Brass & Winds, World, Bass & Guitars, and more

 - Ensoniq ASR CDR Library
Ensoniq ASR CDR LibraryDigital Sound FactoryPresets / Patches2012-06-13

The EPS (Ensoniq Performance Sampler) was manufactured between 1988 and 1991 and was one of the first few affordable samplers on the market. It was an update to the Mirage 8-bit sampler, as the EPS used a 12-bit sampling architecture. The EPS had a straightforward interface that was easy to use, with configurable controls geared for live performance. It used two processors allowing for loading and playing simultaneously. The Ensoniq TS-10 was a synthesizer/music workstation introduced in 1993. It featured synthesis, user sample playback, sequencer, effects and performance parameters with a 61 note keyboard. Another version, with 76 weighted keys, but otherwise identical features except polyphonic aftertouch, was offered as the TS-12. The Ensoniq ASR-10 (Advanced Sampling Recorder) was a sampling keyboard manufactured between 1992 and 1994. It was a follow up product to the very popular Ensoniq EPS and Ensoniq EPS 16+ performance samplers. The ASR-10 was a true performance orientated sampling workstation, and did not require a computer or additional equipment in order to create a complete song. It included a powerful and flexible effects unit, polyphonic aftertouch, an advanced MIDI sequencer, load-while-playing abilities, and a powerful multi-layered synthesis engine. Different layers could be triggered by any number of modulation sources, including velocity, polyphonic aftertouch, or combinations of the two layer keys on the left hand side of the keyboard. The ASR-X followed as a single tabletop unit with professional sampler specifications, and easy yet professional sample editing features. The CDR library was a result of many years of sound content gathered for these products and assembled from floppy disks to create CD-ROM’s. Digital Sound Factory has re mastered this nostalgic library for use with software synthesizers.

Ensoniq ZR-76Digital Sound FactoryPresets / Patches2012-04-25

Ensoniq was founded in the early '80s by some engineers from Commodore. Ensoniq's first product, a software drum machine, was aimed at the home computer market. One of Ensoniq's co founders, was responsible for designing the Commodore 64's three-voice synth chip. In 1982 he designed a portion of a PC that was similar to the sound synthesizer that ended up in the Amiga. It was this chip, the 'Q chip', that was used in the Mirage, the world's first affordable sampler and the ESQ-1, Ensoniq's wavetable synthesizer. Later came the MR and ZR workstations. The Ensoniq ZR Kontakt library is a collection of multiple instruments that were included with the ZR76 keyboard. Ensoniq sound designers used the content that had been collected for the samplers. Special note - A Kawai 9ft Grand has been substituted for the Perfect Piano due to license restrictions.
