Emulator II samples

#1 Post by sonicbleep »

Geeky post I know, but here goes.

The Pets were big users of the Emulator II and arturia have just released a soft synth version of it. Some lovely person has uploaded all the original sample files here -> https://rolls.bublup.com/view/4de21613- ... 59b433c940

Having great fun going through them and discovering the original samples as used by the Pets on various tracks. Just found the crazy scream sound from their version of Losing my Mind! (Death Scream S7 !!)

Anyways if you are a tad geeky with nothing else to do then check it out - BTW you don't need to have the arturia Emulator II software to use the samples. They are mainly wav files and work on any plugin sampler...

Cool, thanks for the link. I already have an Emulator II sample collection that includes the Love Comes Quickly and Shopping bass sounds.

In such geeky mood, musicradar discusses West End girls synths and recreates the synth bass with current software.
Kicking off (no pun intended) with the instantly recognisable Oberheim DMX drum machine and layered string samples from both E-mu Emulator I and Emulator II, the meticulously-programmed rhythm parts are driven along by a thick, analogue bass line.

Played - not sequenced - by Lowe, the seemingly simple bass sound was created with a Roland Jupiter-6, layered via MIDI to a Yamaha DX7 percussive patch played in the lower registers. An Emulator bass drum is also there, played chromatically along with the rest.

Nice article. I believe it’s well documented that Stephen Hague played the bassline on the record, not Chris. Also, Stephen Hague said in an interview for this very forum that it was an Oberheim OBX mixed with a bit of kick drum, not a Jupiter 6.
