I haven’t used my ESI much recently but I’m working it back into my rig to sample the modular. I guess without a hard disk it can’t hold any samples in memory when it’s powered down? The ESI interface is dead simple and the manual is pretty well written. Can you just pop a cd in your computer and see the filenames, or is it a completely different structure than fat32 or whatever.

I think Emy used to use soundforge to do it when I had an esi2k. Also, when using stereo instruments with stereo bussing then MIDI panning should not be moved from the center position, unless intentionally adjusting the stereo balance. What’s your setup manuual now? Bought it new, upgraded it to 72 Mb, added a ZIP drive.
While most of these concepts apply to the base model, this guide is specifically meant for the ESI with the Turbo expansion card, as this ESI 4K Turbo has highest number of outputs. Like could it record and overdub continuously? ESI – Triggering a sample to play to the end Sign In Sign Up.
Sign in Already have an account? I’m hoping I can get some opinions on the ESI Four polyphonic audio outputs with integral submix returns allow you to process certain sounds separately and return them to the main outputs without using up precious mixer channels. I’m just using it to destroy samples in interesting ways and some of the sounds that come out of it are jaw dropping.
Having lots of fun triggering it with the Machine Drum as well. The greatest pain in the ass for me was transferring samples from the computer.
SPDIF and FX can also be utilized but are not separate busses and cannot be used to expand the number of discrete outputs. For this reason, I usually recorded my own samples, or simply loaded stuff from the CD library included with it. I have a esi and have run into the same lack of sample problem as well. That sounds like a feat unto itself. Ok thanks Ill give that a tryare there any sysex editors for the ESI series of samplers?

I’ve got some research to do. It is especially easy to use with a program like Recycle that will automatically slice up a beat or a group of sounds, send it all over the sampler and map the sounds to keys. Eum editor for ESI? I’d like to be able to at least leave a piano sample on it for quick practicing, and maybe some drum samples.
When I buy a synthesizer, I can find dozens of fan pages sharing patches galore whether they are photographs of settings, crudely drawn diagrams, or midi sysex files. It’s got mb of memory on ssi, so maxed out.
If the emu is more predictable to use, I’d like to hear about some of the pros and cons involved in the interface. Here is a breakdown of the outputs: Conversely, Sub 2 and 3 each carry a stereo signal and do require the use of a y-splitter cable for each submix. Do you know any info about the format? Hi theredoes anyone have any recommendations for a sysex editor for the E-MU esi? I used to own an ESI, which is basically the same thing.
