E-mu Orbit V2 9090 Rackmount Synth Sound Module

E-mu Audity 2000 gets a

BEAT MODE 9 STAR RATING.

The Orbit V2

The Orbit V2 was the first E-mu product I have ever purchased. It was immediately satisfying with a wide variety of killer preset sounds and fun beats. The BEAT MODE is spit loads o' fun!

Immediately after receiving this monster of a module I was laying down tracks with a new found inspiration driving me. Finding sounds was easy and some great new ideas were the result.

The "BEAT MODE" (hmmmm....) is a very well implemented way to not only play the canned beats, but better yet, to change and mutilate them on the fly into completely new sounding variations. I was soon recording the patterns into my sequencer with no effort. This module had a more unique sounset in my opinion than Planet Phatt with less cliches. I found it was to great effect to change the TEMPO to create all new feels. Many of the faster techno beats rocked at a lower BPM. And the sound just sparkled. In fact I would say of all the E-mu modules this one seemed to have the cleanest gain and highest signal output.

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!

The novelty hasn't worn off yet and I have also found that Orbit V2 is great for layering with drum beats from other machines, or from midi files. Orbit sounds great layered with the Korg Electribe R, resulting in some maniacally fat sounding beats you couldn't roll any other way (ok, exageratted!).

There are some cliche sounds and beats, but all in all this box offers great flexibility in creating grooves and has nice unique sounds that will fit well in all genres of music. Not simply techno. So - if someone has laughed this box off as strictly a techno tool, laugh to yourself & proove 'em wrong and do up your own brand of unique sounding music with Orbit V2.

So, if you are looking to add new sounds to your arsenal, along with beats to inspire songwriting of all types, the E-mu Orbit V2 9090 is the box you need to have. Be warned - you'll spend hours playing around in beat mode! Just be ready and record some of that stuff - or you'll lose it forever. It only takes a few minutes to set up your sequencer to record the data. E-mu has a nice Orbit V2 FAQ page that'll guide ya along. Then again - next time up you'll get some more great stuff too so don't sweat it!
