E-Mu Classic Series Sample CDS
« on: March 19, 2015, 11:10:49 AM »

I've uploaded a series of 8 (missing vol 4)
of these E-mu Classic Series sample cds
originally developed for the E-mu Emulator III (EIIIX) (1993)

im not sure if they are converted to kontakt
they are mostly in .bin + .cue format
to be burned onto a CD (700mb size?)
(they expand to full disc images)

if anyone would like to take a crack at converting these to a usefull
format  (ie: kontakt, halion, etc)
please check one of them out
they are most likely all the same..
so if one is in kontakt format (.nki) already
the rest probably are the same

i have no idea how to convert..
i think they maybe in e-mu sampler native format
to be used via a scsi cdrom with a E-Mu '90s Sampler
such as E64, E6400, E5000, E4, E4XT, E-4000, ESI-32

heres an example link from one of the discs:
http://web.archive.org/web/20030204001917/www.emu.com/online_shop/cds/esi32_300mblist.asp?REF1=../online_shop/bysound/index.html

they seem to have cross referenced the products on this old 2003 website by compatible product
heres a few example urls but u can just use the dropdown menu top right corner:

http://web.archive.org/web/20010818105512/http://www.emu.com/online_shop/byproduct/awe32_shop.html

this site was backed up from 2003 when E-Mu & Ensoniq were the same company and still active
alot of their content coming from https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/ and http://syntaur.com/default.asp

heres some soundfonts available from digitalsoundfactory: https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/soundfont_products
they also have kontakt products: https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/kontakt_products

Emulator Standards
The granddaddy of Emus sample library, containing some of the original sounds from the first Emulator. A cross-section of instruments from orchestral to brass and percussive that is never hugely cutting-edge but includes some very useful material nonetheless.

More Emulator Standards
More of the same but this time with perhaps a greater emphasis on orchestral sounds. The arco strings are of particular note as are the ethnic sounds, which include surdos, berimbaus and sitars.

Orchestral
Pretty much the same type of sounds you will find on the Proteus 2 Protozoa library, but featuring much bigger and better examples of each instrument. Typical banks require 4-8Mb and there is a great range of all types of orchestral instrument from strings through to woodwind, brass and percussion as well as a couple of grand pianos and a wonderful harpsichord.

Sound FX
Unless a sound effects library is 30 discs long it generally has only token value, but the selection of ambiences, water sounds and domestic noises on this disc might find a use somewhere. A well recorded and welcome inclusion if only to make you want to think about the other SFX disks in the Emu library.

World Instruments
Like the Orchestral disc this one will be familiar to owners of one of the Proteus modules, this time the Proteus 3, but again it features larger and more comprehensive examples of each instrument. The selection includes kotos, whistles, bagpipes and flutes, and for the most part provides all the ethnic musicality you could ask for. The plucked instruments usually stand out as the best of the bunch.

World Percussion Ensemble
Filling in all the gaps in the World Instruments disc, this one concentrates solely on ethnic drum and percussion sounds. Far more than just a bit of African drumming, this disc is as wide a study of global drum sounds as you could imagine, featuring sounds from Japan, Indonesia, Nepal, India, South America and many others.

Emu Classics
A curious inclusion, as half of the disc features pretty much the same as the Protozoa library, namely Proteus 1, 2 and 3 sound sets. In addition, however, there are some great vintage keyboard sounds in the form of DX7s, Rhodes, and Mellotron choirs.

Vintage
A few classic organs are included on this disc along with Prophet, ARP, Moog, Juno and Oberheim synths. There are also a few interesting guitar sounds and a couple of percussion sets. Not exactly a ground-breaking disc, but the sounds are well recorded and presented.

i think they need to be extracted from E-mu or Ensoniq Format first..
(using Ensoniq plugin for totalCommander (windows) or similar product able to read the ensoniq/e-mu proprietary formats)

I am getting more and some say kontakt..
if they are from 2003/2004 there is a chance they are kontakt 1.5 compatible (os9)

also there is a chance some reason refill will be reason 2.5 compatible (os9)

also there is a chance some soundfont will be compatible? (u said soundfont2 is not ??)
but if from 2003/2004 would that be .sf or .sf2?

Xtreme Sampler Converter sucessfully did the translation.
It can open the .bin file and translate the EMU instruments to the sampler format you wish.

i uploaded many more discs last nite..  i will check to make sure they transferred ok but im sure they did

attached is a jpeg showing the filenames of these

the emu "X" ones are for emulator X & proteus X PC only desktop sampling app..
we will see if these are able to be converted

the format is listed above (EXB) in the Xtreme Sampleconverter menu.. so i am optimistic!

did u try CDEXTRACT?
http://www.cdxtract.com/home.php

Yes I did.

The good point about Extreme Sample Converter is that don't need a real recorded CD ROM, it works with the image file (.bin) directly. The bad point is that this App is for Windows only, AFAIK  :'(

so to use CDEXTRACT u have to burn to a real cd first..?

im sure CDEXTRACT would work in combination with Daemon Tools  or other virtual cd mounting app?

E-MU.Modern.Symphonic.Orchestra.EMULATOR.X.PROTEUS.X-SoSISO


Quote
Modern Symphonic Orchestra                                                 
    The Modern Symphonic Orchestra offers a comprehensive collection of over   
    10GB (five DVDs) of the finest string, brass, woodwind, and percussion     
    samples - all meticulously sampled for just the right expressiveness in     
    each recorded note to convey a truly realistic feel.                       
                                                                               
    The library has been set up so that the instrumental sounds of the         
    orchestra are laid out based on a live performance setup from the           
    Baroque era. While there are many ways to set up an orchestra on stage,     
    in working with orchestral samples, this pre-panned Baroque-style setup     
    works the best to give you the most realistic sound possible.               
                                                                               
    Programmed specifically for the powerful Emulator X/Proteus X sound         
    engine, each of the Modern Symphonic Orchestra's presets is mapped to       
    the MIDI real-time controllers for enhanced expression. The pitch wheel     
    and modulation wheel, and other continuous controllers create various       
    performance effects such as: bend-up/ down, voice switching, chorus, or     
    layer crossfade.                                                           
                                                                               
    Together with the included Overture 4 SE notation software, E-MU's         
    Modern Symphonic Orchestra offers a total "plug-and-play" soundset for     
    your Emulator X and Proteus X that lets you dial in the perfect             
    orchestral sound every time.

the only ones im missing is the Vintage X pro vol 1 /2 /3 of which i only have the first 2 discs of vol 1... I think each of those is 4 discs.. so 12 cds...

these can be used on a pc running emulator X or proteus X / Proteus VX using the pc as a standalone midi module.. or they can possibly be converted..
would love to find out from any of u other guys whether or not they are able to be converted.. as im devoting my time to digging up more of this sort of material.. it would be great if someone else could also try to convert... (other than mactron)

or perhaps some other members have the missing volumes that i have not been able to find.. to complete the collection

Yes, it is. And for most of the others converters too.

I haven't tried this, but I bet that doesn't work. The .bin format can be a simple ISO, but can be complex as hell too. In this case is a EMU format. I don't know much about it, but this is not a ISO format for sure, so virtual mounting it may be very hard if no imposible, IMHO

i also have this
E-MU.Modern.Symphonic.Orchestra.EMULATOR.X.PROTEUS.X-SoSISO

...

It will be great if you upload it. I use to write some symphonic themes from time to time, and there is a very few Symphonic Orchestra libraries ...

Anyway, you can upload the first DVD only to check about this EMU-X format ...

yes im pretty dissappointed in the lack of contributions by people that have a great deal of info to contribute and never take the effort to write more then 1-2 sentences. its like, why even come here.. ???if not to share hard to find information + knowledge + also recieve some great things in response..

the mondern symphonic orchestra is the same format as the other 8 or so discs that are undre the emulator X / Proteus X folder i uploaded
along with the proteus X / VX emulator X client i will finish uploading

ive started to upload the first dvd of the symphonic orchestra

in the meantime.. i encourage u guys to check out the libraries over here: https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/
some of them are cheap..
such as https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/e-mu-vintage-keys

also there is one more point to make
i think there is a plugin vst that these sounds have been ported to already called "cakewalk dimension" vst Mac formats: AU (Universal Binary), RTAS (Pro Tools 6.x & up), VSTi; Windows formats: DXi (XP & x64), and VSTi
and its for mac/pc this would be a better way to make use of these sounds then having to use a standalone pc
running emulator X / Proteus X if it is able to be compatible with the same discs

some are already included in the materials i have uploaded
some we can find online..

im really curious about these

Thank you very much. I'm still downloading the second DVD ...
But I have already tested the first one. The library comes in a compressed (and/or encrypted ) file, the DVD contains a installer and must be installed into a windows machine. The instruments have an exb. extension and the samples .ebl . CdXtract can't open (nor convert) them,

the format is listed above (EXB) in the Xtreme Sampleconverter menu.. so i am optimistic!

... but Extreme Sampler Converter and ChickenSys Translator can. ;D

Would you be so generous to convert them to a OS9-friendly format?

Are some conversion targets a downgrade in terms of quality?

The best option is to download the E-MU originals, and each one of us, convert them to its preferred sampler format. Even in Mac Os 9 we are not agree on a format to choose, some may prefer Halion, others EXS or Kontakt, others Sampletank, SoundFont, Reason etc ...

It depends on the source. If the source instrument is simple and basic, the SoundFont or Sampletank format will be enough. If the instruments are complex like this Modern Symphonic Orchestra, (with Key Switches, Round Robin, etc) it must be converted to Kompakt/Kontakt.
... OK, Halion or EXS can be used also, but at its own risk ...  LOL

Quote from: https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/ensoniq-zr

 The Ensoniq ZR SoundFont 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.


Only Kawai for me.

Yamaha => too bright.
Steinway => nose sound.
Bosendorfer => too dark.
Fazioli => dark and nose sound.

So we have to find this piano ...
BTW, we already have some Kawai around here ... can you guess where they are? In my Custom 32Gb Kompakt Library we have the Wizoo Kawai ( it was available in Halion Format in our old FTP server, but I don't know where I have placed the original CD  :'(  ) . This piano is also available as a VST plugins with the name of Steinberg The Grand.

i have your 32gb library living on my WD Studio Firewire drive 500gb ;)  sample library drive

i still have to download protoolsguy's library.. if it is still posted?

i will have to put all this stuff in there too once it gets all converted
hmm i forgot this drive has usb2.0 too..  :D

these e-mu samples may not be the best but what i like about them the most is that they are historical.. in that they were used for many songs
that were released in the 90s and late 80s having the same sounds as what was on the hardware units released from 1987 onwards

Yes, it will work if you record it to real CD previously ( using both the .bin and .cue files usually ). But I'm talking about EMU-X format ( .exb ), the format of the E-MU Modern Synphonic Orchestra.

here are the links for one i am missing "old world instruments"
http://vstbase.com/41722-e-mu-old-world-instruments-emu-alfiso.html

E-MU Old World Instruments EMU-ALFiSO

Quote
These instruments were expertly sampled with their natural decay whenever possible, and each bank provides you with both the pure, unprocessed presets, as well as effected versions - all optimized to EMU's unrivalled synthesis engine. As an added bonus there is a special 'Best Of' bank of sounds from the Proteus 3 World module, a true 'classic' in the industry and heard on countless hits over the years. Unique and exotic, these sounds will add a special 'spice' to any composition!

as i suspected the E-mu EIIIX was one of the first Samplers to feature BUILT IN SCSI for attaching an external SCSI CDROM DRIVE frm which to read these samples
which is why they made these classic series cds

some more info on that:
http://synthark.com/synthesizer-museum/emu-gallery/emulator-archive/samplers/emulator-iiix/scsi/

Emulator IIIx : SCSI

Overview SCSI is an industry standrad hardware and software specification that allows high speed data transfers between different pieces of equipment. SCSI devices can include hard disks, tape drives, optical disks and computers. The EIIIx has two SCSI connectors as standard, which operate at SCSI 1

Cable Type The EIIIx uses a 50-pin Centronics type connector, and the EIII a 25-pin DB25 connector. Always use high quality cabling with all pins wired.

Cable Length Limit the total SCSI cable length to 15 feet.

pretty awesome for 1993
im surprised to see AES/EBU connections. + XLR outputs

apparently there was a keyboard version of the emulator III too
from 1987 many years prior
http://synthark.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Emulator-III-Rear.jpg
http://synthark.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Emulator-III-with-manual.jpg
with 16 individual outputs!!

The good point about Extreme Sample Converter is that don't need a real recorded CD ROM

just like chicken or cdextract, too. :)

on the 1996 emu website backup we see these cds were originally 95$ each!!!
also shows that a few of them are missing from the collection
and verifies that these discs date from prior to 1996;o

Yes, it is. And for most of the others converters too.

it should work, ive converted thousands of akais directly from toast image files using cdxtract.

(but because of the chrashes when browsing bad images id recommend to still do it in bluebox or OSX.)

it is kind of the main function of this program, and it is the very first function in the menubar. :)

I've made a few test with this E-MU Modern Symphonic Orchestra, and I have found that really sounds good.
Most instruments are not chromatically sampled and with few (or only one) velocity layers but it's a 10 GB library with the instruments very well organised.
It is superior than Garritan SO and inferior than Vienna SO. It sits comfortable between EWQLSO Silver and EWQLSO Gold in terms of quality.

Thanks for the review!

Could you describe approx. the weight of Garritan SO, Vienna SO, EWQLSO silver and gold ? I mean GB per library. We know some libraries weight more that them worth... And others, surprisingly with low GB sound great.

I agree with Chris, this sound are historical.

Garritan SO = 1.8 GB
EWQLSO silver = 2.6 GB
EWQLSO silver XP = 6 GB
EMU Modern SO = 10 GB
EWQLSO Gold = 16 GB
EWQLSO Gold XP = 26 GB
Vienna SO Opus 1&2 = 26 GB

Supernova777 - You mention in your original post that you have uploaded bin/cue images of the EMU classics sampler disks, where are those?  I have a couple of ESI-4000 I would love to feed them to.

Thx

I registered mostly to get these CDs too, but I'm not seeing links anywhere. Are they lost now?
