RetroSound’s Marko Ettlich shared this retro synth demo of the sounds of the E-Mu Emax sampling synthesizer.
The Emax is an 8-voice hybrid synth from 1986 that combines digital sampling with analog filters. While it was one of the most affordable sampling keyboards of its era, it remains highly desirable for its unique sound.
This video offers a talk-free sampling of the Emax’s classic sounds and capabilities. If you’re interested in hearing more, check out the playlist below, which features full Emax performances;
