E-mu Audity 2000 gets a

BEAT MODE 5 STAR RATING.

The Audity 2000

First off I'd like to say that I LOVED the Audity 2000. It kicked ass. SO why the meager 5 star rating?

I couldn't get a box that worked. TWO - yes 2 Audity 2000's were defective and ultimately returned to get replaced with the "new and improved Xtreme Lead-1". Problems with crackling in the effects, stuck notes when changing presets and worst of all - LOST patches when the unit was shut down.

The crime is, this baby was so easy to program and come up with killer all new sounds... I tweaked hundreds of patches only to find on 2 seperate occasions they were all lost. That sucks.

So, as good as this Audity 2000 thing was, after 2 defective units the E-mu people convinced me to switch to the all new and lower priced Xtreme Lead-1. Yes, it did have all the features of the Audity 2000 along with some brand new improvements, but somewhere inside of me misses the Audity. It may be psychological but I just can't tweak sounds as easily on the Xtreme. and the sound set does not seem quite as good. That is not to say the Xtreme is a bum piece of gear, on the contrary, it just didn't match the pleasure I derived from the Audity 2000 when it was working. Also - the Xtreme works. That counts.

BEAT MODE RATING SYSTEM

0 to 1 star - SUCKS - BARELY USABLE - Not RECOMMENDED

2-4 stars - SOME REDEEMING VALUE, BUT NOT MUCH TO SHOUT ABOUT.

5-6 stars - DECENT - worthwhile for some applications.

7-8 stars - VERY GOOD product with many pluses, highly usable.

9-10 stars - INDISPENSABLE - must have - the cream of the crop!

So, the Audity 2000 is just a memory for me at this point, but if you are lucky enough to get one that works flawlessly we say keep it! Excellent preset sounds and very easy to roll your own.
