It's alive! Managed to bring this vintage EMU sampler back from the dead last night. Just needs a new fan and HD. Big ups to @hivealive for the loaner!

Little bit of history: These EMU samplers were popular in the 1990s within all types of music, but became especially known as a key tool of drum & bass / jungle producers. They are prized for their great sounding filters and sample manipulation abilities, including some features that still aren't available in today's music software. 
With some luck and a bit of patience I hope to make this thing a key part of the next album!

  • deco@rootsandculture a bad HD and a bad 12V cable coming off the motherboard that I think was shorting something. The fan on the power supply was seized up as well but that's a $5 fix at Fry's ;) Just need to drop in an IDE HD and should be good to go
