Re: Import/export duties on item sent for upgrade

Check here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/apply-to-pay-less-duty-on-goods-you-export-to-process-or-repair Not done it myself but looked into it at one point. Caveat emptor etc,.. It seems complicated and aimed at businesses but also works for individuals. You won’t need the EORI number as you are not ...

Re: E-MU Ultra Sampler Updating Woes

It is out there on the web in various places, the issue is people being able to burn floppies! I’m on a M1 Big Sur Mac and formatting a DOS floppy is impossible! This applies to a lot of people on Macs and possibly W10 and above.

Re: E-MU Ultra Sampler Updating Woes

Just wanted to report back and praise the power of the community!

Frank sent me an old 4.10a disk and it worked! A step closer to the 4.7 upgrade as this now opens up MIDI updates!

Cheers all!

Re: The one box solution.

Okay, a question for the lore keepers amongst you. Keep in mind I'm new to synths and that's one reason I'm asking. Can you recall a singer who accompanied themself on a syth? And was it a sort of one-off? As above plus Ladytron, Au Revoir Simone, Air (not much singing but plenty of Vocoding), Kraf...

Re: E-MU Ultra Sampler Updating Woes

That’s very kind Frank _ I will PM you. You are right re Win98 - I think you can also author the right DOS disc in XP too. I was going to try things like EOS link as well which made me think 98 might be better. In terms of the flash prep, it was really for the later OS’s I think. For example, you co...

Re: E-MU Ultra Sampler Updating Woes

Thanks both - yes seem those. Looks like I might need to track down an old Win98 laptop or PC with a floppy drive! Big Sur on a m1 not so great at that!

Re: E-MU Ultra Sampler Updating Woes

Cheers folks but you’ve ever so slightly gone off down the wrong rabbit hole. Talking about the OS which resides in the Flash ROM not the storage moving from SCSI/IDE to flash drives. Updating the OS usually is quite straightforward other than for those few people like me stuck on the very first Ult...

E-MU Ultra Sampler Updating Woes

Any E-MU Ultra sampler guru’s on here?? Tearing my hair out trying to upgrade it! Got a NOS E4XT Ultra which has the very first OS 4.01 installed. I’m trying to get to 4.7... I’m hearing mixed news on whether you have to upgrade to 4.02 first but the consensus seems to be you don’t have to but you d...

Re: Anybody know what Synth this is?

About £2k used and pretty reliable. You can even buy replacement panels still.

Otherwise, I think any modern Moog will get close enough.

Re: Scan - Anyone else had problems?

Always been fine on the couple of occasions I’ve used them. Is there an option to telephone and check/reserve the item before ordering?

Re: Which 24-track interface?

Not stand alone, but the TB2 Presonus Quantum 4848 (32 I/O on Dsubs plus 16 Adat) is cheap enough that you may consider that and a stand alone device....apparently won a blind shoot out with Apogee, but whether it did or not it still sounds perfectly fine. I read the post title and came here to rec...
