History: Changing the sampling game
An instrument that graced every '80s line-up. An icon from the early days of sampling. A unique character that helped define the sound of a decade and beyond. The Emulator II's digital charm and tactile layout made it the musical weapon of choice for everyone from Depeche Mode to Trent Reznor.
The Emulator series was the work of E-mu Systems in the 1980s. Upon release, the Emulator II was met with critical acclaim, combining the novel versatility of sampling with the familiar layout of a classic synthesizer.
At the helm of E-mu systems was the legendary Dave Rossum. A California native, Rossum is now a veteran of the industry, and considered among the most influential figures in electronic instrument design.
His pioneering work combining analog richness and digital precision in modular systems made the synth world sit up and listen, and the company went on to collaborate with the likes of Sequential and Oberheim. It was when the '80s hit, however, that Rossum struck gold.
