  • if you have X2 AND some other piece of EMU hardware (i.e. one of their MIDI interfaces) I believe you can use that and that X2 will then use that as its 'dongle'. this includes the EMU controller boards, if I am not mistaken.

    You may want to confirm that with EMU, however. I am in the same position you are - I dont want to loose X2.

    Synthswipe is the greatest thing EVER.

      • How much does this X2 have in common with Emu E4 Ultra?

        • anyone know what's up with the beta drivers? are they going to be officially released? gonna expire soon...

          • anyone?

            no one from Emu seems to read the Unofficial Emu Forums anymore....

            • I'd heard some disturbing rumors (and yes, only rumors) that the parent company for Creative and E-mu were planning to ax everything they owned that wasn't Creative due to bad economic times. That means everything from E-mu would no longer have any support. The fact that EX2 Platinum, which was supposed to be released in May from what I recall, is not out yet, seems to support this idea.

              Is there anyone who can confirm or deny this? I have an Emu 1212M and would love to own EX2.

              • Heh, I was half-expecting at least a quick message from Craig along the lines of "please don't spread rumors." Again, that's not my intention. It's just that an official denial from someone in the company would make me feel a little better about my impending decision.

                • hello all; new purchaser of emulator x2! the sounds are blowing me away? i've already had to get an upgrade of ram for my CPU, but it's worth it! i'm having difficulty getting sonar 4 to recognize it as a vst insert (or recognize it anywhere!). i use reason as well, and sonar had no problem with it. i'm also able to hear midi triggered through my keyboard controller, and when recording i can hear the ex2 sounds getting triggered; on playback however, i only hear the midi data that was playing through my kybd controller, even though the local control on the keyboard was turned off.

                  i'd like to use ex2 on my next project, but i'm having a heck of time figuring out how to get sonar to recognize emulator. what's the problem?

                  thanks in advance.

                  • Where is E-MU EMULATOR X3 info????

                    Manual available yet?

                    EMU dumped us again eh?

                    1) No info on assigning individual Voices to physical outputs.

                    EmulatorX needs "Submix" parameter (the same as the E4 hardware), in the "Amplifier Controls" section of Voice Processing This should provide a link to ALL the physical outputs on the selected audio card in the "Preferences". For example, the 1820M has : 1L, 1R, 2L, 2R, 3L, 3R, 4L, 4R (Monitor out) physical outputs. Each of these should be available for selection for ANY VOICE as an output.

                    Another example - 8 voice preset with 8 drum hits, one on each voice (to use different filters for each hit), each voice has submix physical output assignment, outputs of audio card goes in to analog console for mixing.

                    2) No OS X Version

                    3) No PCIe/ExpressCard/34 Audio Interfaces.

                    4) No RTAS/OSX Plug

                    • They dont make software for Mac. Thats just how they want to be.

                      Also, the new software is no longer tied to having a piece of EMU hardware installed. So, if you need a better card you arent stuck. This makes me *very* happy, as I am tired of loosing a PCI slot to what has essentially become a dongle.

                      About the other issues, I havnt had a problem. I just open another instance and use my DAW to route the audio.

                      • Well I know what I'm doing with the E-mu filters and cords section, I have been using them for nearly 10 years, even if I don't always explain myself very well.

                        Now if anyone from E-mu actually knows for a fact why you cannot control the filter resonance parameter cord destination otherwise known as gain/expression/q/peak on the morphing filters in realtime please respond.

                        Tbh I have nothing else to say on the matter unless someone can give a factual based answer.

                        PS:- For anyone thats interested here is a comparison between the 4 Pole High Pass Filter on the E4XT Ultra and Emulator X2, there is quite a big difference.

                        Great thread, any chance you could re-up that file Overdrive? I own a e6400 classic and love the filters, the high pass especially is very present and full of character, I understand Emu wanting to implement smoother more natural filters for general use but they should keep the original ones in as an option - that's easily my biggest request.

                        Question for Ichi. As so many people would like to see the original filter types included and you have the original code, would it not be possible to port the code over and have these filters as an option i.e. Emulator E6400 series LP, HP, BP etc, would it really be that hard?

                          FYI - Ichi no longer works for E-Mu, he is now at Universal Audio (and yes, they consider themselves very lucky to have him on board).

                            My faith in EMU is less than zero. Creative Labs have been in financial trouble for a long time. First EMU promised the X2 Platinum, then nothing, then they presented the X3 (for a ridiculous price of 699), now nothing for a year. With Ichi leaving, there can't be many left. I have bought the X, the X2 and the Proteus X. Now they give away the Proteus for free, this free version also works for Vista, something they did never do for the paid version. Where is the dual/quad core support?

                            When was the last time EMU had some new stuff? I haven't seen any new hardware for years. Not even their keyboard controllers have been updated. Too bad, I really liked their products (too bad they don't always work correctly).
