  • Emu Esi 2000 question

    Hello, I am thinking about getting a emu esi 2000. Would I be able to use multisamples with this unit? As in, the ddrum4 megakits have several (6-8) Tom sounds that can be used when you hit the pad. Can this same type of thing be used with an emu esi 2000? If not, are there any samplers that can do this?

    Yep, it can. You can download the manual I believe, so you can see for yourself.

      ok, I found the manual. It shows you can set different samples up per how much velocity the drum is hit. Is this the same way the ddrum megakit samples work? As in, on the megakits that have 6-8 different samples per drum sound, are these samples triggered per different velocity? As in, on the ddrum4 if I'm using a megakit, will the same Tom sound continually be played if I hit that pad at the same exact velocity?

          Hey Ddrummer,
          • how did you find out those velocity values?
          • And how did you find out the poly. value?
          • What is that real strength of the ddrum hihat?


          Anyway,

          I believe you're forgetting that some of the megakits also feature positional samples. By which I mean that you get another sample when you hit near the rim. I've heard that you can configure your ddrum to send out different midi notes for different positions on your pads. When you do not use a ddrum, you don't have that.
          I've heard Vdrums also have it, but they send out midi CC message's. That seems harder to implement when using a sampler though, but it probably can be done.

          Mr_poepoe
          maybe you can also check out software samplers which run on your pc.
          Anyway, there are lots of great drum sample libraries in AKAI format, so a sampler is a good choice. How many memory will you put in it?

          Tom, having fun with those colors

            "how did you find out those velocity values? "



            And how did you find out the poly. value?



            What is that real strength of the ddrum hihat?

            Good question!
