I'm pretty sure it's easy to convert the original CDS3 CD-ROMs to SD4EII format with a little piece of software code.
Another guy (at the yahoo group) already asked me to try to create this converter but he didn't manage to provide me with a file containing the raw CD disk copy image of one of his CD-ROMs. And without this file or CD I can't investigate the source format of course :-)
But if you can manage to upload somewhere (or torrent) a raw image of one of your CD's then I can still give it a try. Who knows, maybe it's only a few minutes of work to create the converter software.

Hey Damir,

Yes, you're right, you too asked for this on yahoo. But also a certain Martin Dubka, unless that's an alias for you too :-) I didn't receive files from him either.

Anyway, let's try to get your files to me - I'll send you a PM on eiiiforum.

OK guys,

I figured out the full addressing structure of the OMI CDS3 cdroms.
It seems not difficult so I'll definitely be able to use a small piece of quick & dirty code to translate those CDs to a set of individual EII bank files that can be used in SoundDesigner. Complete with an index of which bank belongs to which OMI soundcategory.
Indeed, the CDS3 system seemed to have a feature of categories which e.g. clustered all piano banks on the CD to a category called "keyboard"; this was probably used to make navigation through the banks more easy.
Well, that was necessary too because the first two CDs contain 538 and 510 banks, and there's even a third CD !
Strange that Emu didn't think about this kind of navigation feature on its later models like the Emax and EIII...

Anyway, no time to loose, I'll write that converter during the weekend but I have to paint my livingroom doors first (one has to know his priorities  Cheesy )

News flash.

The conversion tool is ready and I succeeded in converting the first two OMI CDs to a set of EII files for SoundDesigner.

Dear E-Synthesist!

You are a genious!
Have I told you yet?  Cheesy

Dunno what to say. I already have quite a lot banks from those OMI CDs, but many are still missing...

Will you guys be willing to share the library with us in any way?

(please.....)

Does anyone have a track list of the banks that are on the 3 CD-ROM's?

I'd like to know if they contain more or different banks than the floppy library for the EII.

If they're different than the floppy library then count me in as an interested party :-)

FYI,

I temporarily uploaded the table of contents of the three CDs to this url:
http://users.skynet.be/emxp/CDS3_EMULATORII_CONTENTS.zip

The files in de ZIP package have been directly generated from the CDs themselves, which explains the somewhat strange format of the contents.

One note: the title of the first two CDs is "Universe of Sounds" (volumes 1 and 2) while the third one is called "Northstar Gold Universe volume 3". It's totally unclear if this third CD is the official "Universe of Sounds volume 3" or a third volume of some Northstar series. Roginator told me there were only three CDS3 cdroms ever released for Emulator II. The Northstar website gives an overview of all EII banks they ever released. At first sight almost all banks on the third CD are also mentioned on their site. Since the same site mentions that Northstar has created a total of 507 soundbanks for the EII, and since the "volume 3" CD already contains 436 banks, I guess it can never be the third volume of a Northstar-only series of CD-roms. So probably Northstar was asked to create the third OMI Universe Of Sounds CD, and afterwards added some 80 additional soundbanks to their catalogue. Can anyone confirm this ?
I just would like to know if there are even more CDS3 cdroms for the Emulator II out there.

Hi Guys!

It seems to be the original OMI CD-Rom library to a 100%, as I have compared E-synthesists listings to (possibly) original OMI Sheets I've got.

This is a dream coming true... I've always gassed for the Banks that are still missing in my OMI - "collection", for example all the sound efx and lots of orchestral banks...
