TEXTURAL SAMPLING ENSEMBLE
Emulator II V is the perfect dusty lo-fi sampling toolkit, combining the old-school digital grit that you love with the cutting-edge creative flexibility that you need.
Emulator II V is a multitimbral sampling machine that brings E-Mu Systems’ seminal digital workhorse back to life in all its nostalgic glory - with a slick modern edge.
Its unique combination of high-fidelity 8-bit sound, warm analog filter, and instantly-recognisable sample library is sure to spark instant creativity, just as the original once did. When you want lo-fi grain, ‘80s sheen, or a sampling flow that stands out from the crowd, look no further.
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.
Is it modern? Is it vintage?
It’s both. Emulator II V comes loaded with a curated sample library that mixes iconic Emulator & Synclavier samples with a diverse modern selection. Better still, you can import your own samples to give them that diamond retro treatment, or dive deeper into its sampling architecture with enhanced editing tools.
Sampler heart, synth brain
Instrument first, sampler second. Part of what made the Emulator hardware so popular was the fact that it behaved like a synthesizer, but with the flexibility of using samples - its multitimbrality meant up to 8 samples could be played at once on your keyboard.
Emulator II V follows the same recipe to offer you the same charm that put this instrument on the musical map. Tame that 8-bit character with an ultra-smooth VCF, dial in some LFO for classic synth-style movement, or instantly change your sample playback with familiar ADSR control.
Emulator II V goes beyond glorious ‘80s sound - this is an expansive virtual sampling workhorse that’ll complement your creativity to no end.
6-mode arpeggiator to set your ideas free so you can focus on dynamics and expression.
2 assignable expression wheels give this sampler an expressive edge.
Assign and cross-fade up to 8 separate samples across your keyboard range.
Each sample is polyphonic within its keyboard zone, with its own filter, VCA, and LFO.
Add effects per sample to really customize your Emulator palette in sonic detail.
Emulator II V’s authentic 8-voice multitimbral architecture allows you to play whatever samples you choose like your own custom orchestra - complete with expression and performance tools. This classic sampler is designed to let you express yourself.
What we added
Emulator II V’s interface is designed to be authentic and immersive - but there’s more than meets the eye. Zoom in on the built-in display to access in-depth sampling editing, expressive modulation, and a suite of FX that go beyond the original - and that’ll cement Emulator II V as your favorite outside-the-box sampler.
