Complete Set - never opened

Brand new - The professionally made Lexan overlays for the Emulator II classic sampler keyboard. If your overlays are tatty, or your Emulator 2 needs a big overhaul then this set will come in handy. And if you followed the saga of their production on the Emulator forum you'll know the process is unlikely to be repeated, given the huge pain and cost involved in getting them right - and then considerable cost of importing them. The mod wheel overlay is just a bit darker than the main panel -  a very minor thing and all else is spot on, laser-cut to greatest accuracy. Will be send so that it wont bend in post. Here's a one off chance to get such a set. Not likely to be found for sale again. Is in the EU

price 180 GBP  (if sold outside EU , i can put the value so that there will be a minimum import tax)

please email me direct on:  dab (at ) dnpost dot dk   - I have paypal

Will send so it wont be bend

I wonder if the Emax has a compatibility issue with the FuzinMonster SD card.

Have you had success using the FuzinMonster card in your Emax?

I had no problem with the Emax II compatibility with the Fuzinmonster and a 16 GB SD card but with the Emax and the same size SD card I have problems (I know that the Emax will only be able to address 20 MB of the 16 GB SD card).

The FuzinMonster is set at ID 0 with termination on.

The SD card is formattet with a harddisk image, banks and OS HD 1.1 from a pc with Emxp.

I've also tried to format the SD card in the Emax first hand as I did with the Emax II and then create the HD image with Emxp.

With the Emax powering up with the just the floppy drive and the Fuzinmonster card installed I can see that the Emax adresses the FuzinMonster card and the display says "Just a moment". This message stays on until I insert a floppy disc with the OS HD 1.1 or if I leave the floppy disc out of the Emax the Emax times out and the display say "Harddisk error".

When scanning the HD (SD card) I get the message "Defects found in xx bank error" on every stored bank on the SD card.

The FuzinMonster manufacturer says "It seems that pc333 ver. or earlier will not be compatible with the FuzinMonster". What is a later version than pc333?

Any shared knowledge regarding this matter is much appreciated ;-)

Best regards

I see one on there now at the time there was only Plenty of Emax to Mac cables but not EII to Mac... I found a guy on reverb.com that had one laying around though.

Can't speak to the amperage and current needed but I thought it was mentioned earlier in this thread. I believe you will need at least a 60 Watt PSU. As for anyone concerned with getting the +15V rail down to around +13.4V, three 3A diodes in series in between the Mean Well T-65C (or similar) +15V connection and the +13.4V wires works great.

Apparently the analog electronics are doing fine with the +15V rail but I would especially be concerned with the models that do not have the special +12V line to power the 5.25" floppy drives. Running those at +15V is risky so I hear, as appears to be the case with This is Not America's image above.

What is the temperature of the place ?
Can you record with the cracks and upload it somewhere so we can listen to it ?
Does it happen with different sound ?
Are the cracles are coming alone or do you have to play ?
Hi Dr C.
Sorry if I come back a little late on this forum as I needed to make some samples for a forthcoming EP. Basically I made a little video that would be much "demonstrative" than words !
Here is the link : https://youtu.be/CeYKL4GKeQE
Any help would be helpful ! You will notice that crackles are coming randomly. I pressed the audition button in the video to show the problem but it's the same with a midi keyboard.
For several months I take lessons of electronic repair with a friend and I'd like to know if some members of eIIIforum already had this kind of problem?

Today I managed to boot up my Emax II on a SD card without the noisy harddrive and also without the floppy drive installed.

Here goes:

I found a scsi cable with 2 outputs and I connected both the harddrive and SD card reader. With the floppy drive installed the Emax II booted up after a few attempts.

I formatted the SD card and turned off the Emax II when the verifying process started.

I inserted the SD card in my pc and via the emxp software I made an Emax II harddisk image on my local pc harddrive. I filled the harddisk image with Emax II banks and instructed emxp to install the harddisk image on the SD card.

I inserted the sd card in the Emax I and booted up again and instructed the Emax II to copy the software to the sd card and turned off the Emax II again.

Then I disconnected the noisy harddrive and also the floppydrive. I installed the original scsi data cable again.

I installed a jumper on the floppy connector at pin 26. This bypasses the endless search for the missing floppy drive.

Now the Emax is very quit and boots up on the SD card.

Best regards
