Miami Vice Crocket’s Theme On Vintage E-Mu Emulator II

RetroSound‘s Marko Ettlich shared his take on Jan Hammer’s Crocket’s Theme, from the Miami Vice soundtrack.

“I sampled my synths for this cover version and I used the EII factory library,” he notes. “In the original track, Jan Hammer used the Jupiter 8 for random arpeggio bass, Fairlight voices, Linndrum, DX7 Koto…”

Technical details:

All synthesizer sounds: E-MU Emulator II sampling synthesizer (1984)
Drums: E-MU
Recording: multi-track
FX: reverb and delay
