This site is entirely dedicated to the wonderful samplers and drum machines produced by E-mu Systems in the early eighties up until the new millenium.

I have decided not to include the ESI family as you can tell from the menu to your left, but I will probably include it at some point in the future. It is not that I don't know anything about the ESI series, but honestly my main interest it with what you see in the menu to your left, and hey; I run the site - ok ?:-).

Should you have anything you want to tell me or should you find any errors or bugs on this site please don't hesitate to let me know. You can always contact me via the contact page.

A big thank you to Rob Keeble who used to run Emulator Archive for providing material to be used on this site where ever it makes sense.
