Got my ESI-32 Last night. I've pulled it open and looked inside verified it's pending greatness.

Software Version 2.1
8MB of Ram
SCSI
SPID/IF

Looked around online, apparently for $99 there is an O/S upgrade avalable that includes some new effects and functions that is supposedly still available from E-mu.

And 32MB of 30pin EDO RAM for the onboard RAM Bank will run about $45.00

Talked wtih Cameron, we're getting together next thursday to put the finnishing touches on the last couple of tracks for the ablum. He also thinks he might be able to track down a scsi enclosure which will interface with the sampler.
Plus, I can interface the External HD and the Sampler directly to my PC via my existing SCSI Card. woot!

My little brother and I have been hanging out a bit, we ended up at the Dive Bar last night, with delchi and michelle. Got fairly tossed, worked all day, and will be out at the God Module/System.Syn show tonight, should be a blast.

I'm looking forward to playing with it, I've wanted to incorporate some hardware into the gear, and I think it will work nicely once I get it all configrues.

Heh... yeah that's it, I'm your stairway to greatness :)

I might mention that you also managed to get tossed enough to leave your DJ book behind :)

That was my first real sampler, after the evil Yamaha TX16W. I remember there being a "turbo" upgrade that added the z-plane filters from the EMU morpheus and some additional outputs. You might be able to find one on ebay.

The converters are great in those, they have a nice warm sound as compared to the Akai boxes i used over the years. I also think that it has the transform multiplication stuff from the old Emax line which is a non-realtime wierd DSP thing.

yes, I'm liking it a lot, I ordered the 32MB Ram Upgrade and dropped e-mail to EMU Regarding the OS update to 3.03x that is supposed to be abailable, I'm playing with the transforming multiplication now that now. . . ;p

I'm definately impressed with it.
