Not 1 but 3 iconic sampler-synths from the ’80s plus a massive lo-fi drum machine, the original officially licensed sounds plus tons of new ones, all recorded from the vintage hardware, available as individual instruments or in a multi capable of huge stacked sounds and inspiring 4+1 part phrases, we are extremely excited to present you with our most ambitious library yet: Emulation II+!
Explore the authentic hardware sounds of the Emulator, Emulator II and Emulator III, then dive into Drumulation+, an old-school drum machine packed with thousands of drum samples from the Drumulator, SP12, and EI, II, and III, with a creative sequencer, MIDI drag-and-drop, and more.
Whether you’re a fan of ’80s music or just love the lo-fi flavor of vintage samplers, Emulation II+ is a powerful, dynamic and massively playable instrument with heaps of inspiration for musicians, composers, producers and sound designers of all backgrounds.
Used across countless hit records and film scores of the ’80s, the sounds of Emulation II are rich and immediate. With over 300 layers recorded directly from a fully-restored Emulator II, and again on the rare Oberheim DPX-1 (switch machines by pressing the “DPX” toggle in the UI), you get an exhaustive collection of officially licensed presets from the exclusive OMI libraries “Universe of Sounds” volumes 1 and 2. Emulation II gives you unparalleled access to the authentic lo-fi sounds of this iconic hit-maker.
Emulator was the first “affordable” 8-bit sampler, released in 1981. Emulation I is a modern creative exploration of this vintage classic, delivering both old and all-new sounds. With a warm collection of samples loaded on floppy and recorded from the hardware, you get hundreds of lo-fi sounds, from orchestral to electronic, classic to modern genre. Emulation I is a versatile and charactered instrument with plenty of surprises.
Featuring a more robust system with higher fidelity engine, the Emulator III has a classic vintage-era sound with a twist. Featuring the original licensed sounds from OMI, you get over 240 layers recorded directly from the hardware. Emulation III completes the famous trinity of ’80s sample-synths with a unique and complementary library of sounds including plenty of bass, leads, bells, pads, orchestral, and much more.
All instruments in Emulation II+ share the same layout and base functionality, with the exception of Emulation II’s special DPX mode, making it seamless to switch between instruments and stay focused on the sound. ADSR envelopes over amplitude and multimode filter, pitch and voice controls including unison, vibrato, tremolo, and a filter LFO all controllable by modwheel, an effects section with drive, redux, chorus, phaser and eq, and a powerful 64-step phraser/arpeggiator with scale quantization. Altogether you have complete control and creative flexibility.
Over 2400 individual drum sounds plus 210 preset kits with sequences equals one massive vintage drum machine. Drumulation+ contains all elements from the original Drumulator along with drums and percussive samples from the Emulator, Emulator II, and Emulator III. Finally, we’ve included a full set of original sounds from the classic SP12, making it an extraordinary and inspiring source for classic lo-fi beats.
Drumulation+ gives you an 8-part drum machine with pan, +/-24 semitone pitch, decay, drive, hi- and lo-pass filters, 2 reverb and 2 delay sends, and drive and eq bus effects. Use the built-in sequencer with per-part clock divider to instantly create beats, then drag-and-drop the MIDI to your DAW of choice. With both stereo and multi-channel outputs Drumulation+ is ready to integrate into even the most demanding mixes.
A powerful and inspiring music-making instrument, the Emulation II+ Multi gives you Drumulation+ and 4 customizable slots that can be loaded with any combination of Emulation I, II, or III instrument layers. Use the built-in phraser/arpeggiators to create full song ideas, or play the layers in stack, using the amps and filters to create huge new sounds. A formidable studio in its own right, the Emulation II+ Multi gives you near limitless sound and phrase design potential in an inspiring and quick-to-master layout.
A deep and jam-packed instrument capable of everything from 4-part stacked sounds to incredible vintage drums and inspiring song sketchpad with discrete 64-step arpeggiator/phrasers.
