E-MU Emulator II Sound Banks Collection sf2 v1.0-SoniQ screenshot
SoniQ | Date: 2015.05.04 | Size: 697,05 MB
This release is the attempt of a sound bank collection as
complete as possible for the Emulator II in sf2 format. The
files were collected in original .eii-format and were then
converted into soundfonts by using the free tool emxp.

The included libraries are the most important factory and
commercial libraries for the EII, you could buy then:
EMU Systems Library (factory library)
OMI Universe of Sounds Vol. 1-3
FM Designs Vol. 1
K-Muse Library (by Richard Burmer)

The previously available 5CD collection of EII sounds in Kontakt and WAV format seemed to be a conversion of the Emulator II sound banks for the Emulator III, which grossly differ from the original sound banks of the EII.
This release is the real deal!

Thank you so much for this ! I always love EMU sounds.Could load them without problems in Logic ESX ! The only problem is that the loops are strange... anyone know how to fix this ? TIA
  Resident 21.11.2013 4 253
This is probably a problem of ESX, which is not playing back the sound fonts correctly.
Try NI Kontakt or other sf2 players. A lot of Vstis can play sf2 files more or less well. You have to test your way through for the best performance. Today I discovered, that Discovery Pro can do it also, but I haven't checked yet, so I mention this cautiously here!
Strongly recommended is Presence in Studio One as the Nfo says. It's a blast, when you use the distortion effect in Presence with the opamp algorithm and the flanger in default setting to make it stereo.
Share some famous sounds here, when you have found them!
Start with "22 Loon garden" of the factory library. It's the famous Shakuhachi sound, used by Peter Gabriel, Enigma, Tangerine Dream and countless others.

Hey, you could also try to convert the sound fonts to EXS24 format using either Awave Studio or CDXtract.
That might work better than letting EXS24 interpret the sf2 files itself.

I would first try Awave because it claims to fully support loop points in both SF2 and EXS files.

Hopefully the bad loops were not caused by emxp in the first place.
  Resident 21.11.2013 4 253
Thanks, fiction, for the great tip!
sf2 format was developed from .eii format (the original file format for the Emulator II) That is why it should be pretty easy for emxp to convert it correctly.
And as I said, all loops perfect in Kontakt and Presence

700 MB: How come that it's so small? Is it really the complete set for the E-MU II ?
  Resident 21.11.2013 4 253
It is compressed well. uncompressed 1,5 GB
There existed other smaller 3rd party libraries, but you cannot even find many infos about them on the net.
The owner of the hardware machines probably still have a lot of more unknown floppies around.
But these are all the famous libraries, yes.
And for your consideration: By the time these libraries were created, the whole internet would have fitted on your usb stick...

Anyone knows how i can run cdxtract on win 8 ? Install won´t start :-(
Also tried in compatibily mode :-(

Hi everybody,

I have bought the full version since 2 years ago and I converted in Kontakt nki format.
My full version has 4,5GB...compressed in zip format!
My dream was to create a Kontakt Library for Kontakt 5.
I tried to convert for Kontakt but unfortunately I don't know how to build it.
It's a shame. If anyone of you know how to do it, please send me an MP.
I will obviously share my full Emulator II library.
  Resident 21.11.2013 4 253
read the nfo. you bought crap. that is why they are releasing it here. there are a lot of bad, incomplete collections floating around. you have probably the .hfe file ending version, right? it is for a special floppy emulator for the hardware machine. takes two minutes to google, how to convert it into sf2 and after that into nki.
Everything that comes from Emulator II must first be converted into sf2 and after that into nki. Makes no sense, does it? sf2 was developed from the EII format by EMU.
just take this release.
and please, read the nfo! it is the least you can do to get your questions answered!

Alright Sakurahime. You made my day!
I've used CDExtract to convert hfe format from each folder of each CD then I converted again to nki format. It took me 2 days to do it...
...and finally your version is the best one and guess what? I use now your sf2 format.
Pretty good...specially K-Muse and O-MI.
Thanks a lot! :-)
  Resident 21.11.2013 4 253
You are welcome
This version you have is stolen from a nice guy and turned to money by assholes on eBay or whatever. Me too, I almost bought it
And your version is made from the same source material, .eii files, converted to .hfe files…two days later .nki files. But without correct library names. He just threw it in one pot, and it is not complete, I think.
It is this big because when converting to .nki, the samples get converted multiple times, too. When you make a single sample folder, it should be about the same size.

Thank you so much for this Sakurahime!

I'm also an E-MU sound libraries and samplers fan. Now how to play them with EIV... :) or maybe I'll use SFZ+ in the mean time and just convert one by one as needed.

The EIV can read sf2, I presume? You are lucky! The Pros say, EIV sounds better than a sample player in the box… Balanced outputs, etc. Try it and report back, please!
Extreme Sample Converter is the best tool to convert stuff I ran across until now. Check it out

The old 5CD collection grossly differ from the original sound banks of the EII.

That's an important point!

"Sledgehammer" from Peter Gabriel, the "Shakuhachi" in the first measures, made everyone avoid to use it in post productions, because of the unique one sample slide, would sound Gabriel's imitation.

You can add to the list :

Christopher Franke (From Tangerine Dream ) "Raven" TV Serie Opening !
  Resident 21.11.2013 4 253
Didn't know about Alphaville :)
Enigma used it, too.
And the preset/bank "22 Loon Garden" also has the Art of Noise choir sound in the lower registers.
For all the guys, that are searching for the famous "Liquid Stack" sound.
The 4 "Liquid Stack" presets are hidden in the Bank "Expensive Synth Stack" in OMI UoS Vol. 2/Synthesizer/
Now, Terminator 2 was also made with this cutie. Anyone know or found the sound?

Somebody knows if Presence can work without Studio One as a regular vst?
  Resident 21.11.2013 4 253
No, it is S1 only

I checked Presence on Studio One and it looks nice but since I use almost Logic X, I don't need any SF2 player (even if Presence looks cool).
I just used the standard EXS24 as you can see here below. That's all! Enjoy. :-)

Ok. Then you have to correct the loop points, that are not playing correctly, by hand. But most of the stuff sounds right, I hope...
