E-mu Emulator 1

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK Client.

Came into stock: Available from RL Music as at 21st November 2019.

Servicing Status: KSR have already fully serviced this Emulator 1 in November 2019, so it’s ready for sale now.

Remarks: A really nice condition example of the sampler that started off the legendary series: The E-mu Systems Emulators, from 1981 until the 1990s.

The Emulator 1 was a truly groundbreaking instrument that is commonly considered to have stared a music revolution in the use of samplers in popular music. Early adopters were some of the biggest names in the industry, like Michael Jackson (Quincy Jones), Stevie Wonder, Genesis etc. There’s plenty about the history that can be found on-line, but the Emulator 1 is something very special, for a number of good reasons.

The Model number of this Emulator 1 is 6008 (serial #470 – out of 500 built), which makes this a later production version 8 Voice system, manufactured in 1983. The unique architecture of the E1 delivers the 8 voices in a 5/3 keyboard split, so 5 voices in the lower half, 3 at the top above the mid-point keyboard split. This E1 also has the RS232 port fitted, so with the right software/hardware, you can access the system remotely.

The E1 comes with 30 floppy disks, including 8 from the original Production Set (all real instruments, harps, clavinets, tympani, orchestra hits etc) and a multi-sampling disk. We have a PDF document detailing the library which we will supply with the instrument.

Our client has owned this Emulator 1 since 1993, and has used it on countless recordings, but has not been using it for a while now, so has decided to pass it on. It’s been very well cared for, and cosmetically speaking, is in good condition, with only the expected amount of wear to the painted metal cabinet.  KSR has already fully serviced this Emulator 1, including re-bushing the key-bed, so all the controls work perfectly, and the load/play/sampling functions are 100%, so it’s good to go.

This Emulator 1 operates on EU 220V. We do have a printed user manual supplied form the owner which will be supplied with the sampler.

As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month warranty and can be shipped worldwide.

Demos are available by appointment only.

Price: £2,690 GBP.

Availability: This Emulator 1 is now SOLD, as at 19th December 2019.
