Scotts Valley, CA (January 6, 2005)–E-Mu Systems has launched its Emulator X Version 1.5 Software, offering Emulator X owners a host of new features, including integrated software effects at the preset and multi-setup level and a new Single View Screen that allows users to quickly search and dial up sounds in seconds. Emulator X Version 1.5 ships late November 2004, and will be available as a free software download to all Emulator X owners on www.emu.com.
Emulator X Version 1.5 Software adds integrated effects to E-Mu’s Desktop Sampling systems, offering two discrete software effects processors per preset with comprehensive MIDI modulation (including wet/dry mix at the sample level), plus three effects processors per multi-setup–up to 67 simultaneous effects. These new software effects are in addition to Emulator X’s hardware-accelerated effects (with more than 600 presets) that can be used standalone or as VST plug-ins within an audio/sequencer program with no CPU load on the computer, offering flexibility in applying effects processing to audio.
Emulator X’s new Single View Screen and Audition from Disk features speed up the selection of sounds, allowing the user to dial in and audition sounds in a sound module format. The new Single View interface offers E-Mu’s SoundNavigator feature to scroll through sounds based on instrument category (e.g. keyboards, basses, etc.).
