Vintage samplers

I now have a complete set of sounds from the Emulator II, Fairlight CMI IIx and Fairlight CMI 3. All working in NI Kontakt. The Emulator II ones were converted via EMXP so they’re mapped and modulated just as they were on the original machine. The CMI IIx sounds are far more interesting than the CMI 3.

All these sounds come from disc images, avoiding the original DA conversion. Not authentic, but it gives them a new lease of life. What’s amazing is that some of these were sampled over thirty years ago!
