E-Mu Orbit V2
With over 600 of the earth's most cutting edge samples and the
introduction of new rhythmic features, Orbit V2 blasts its way to the
forefront as the dance music machine. Orbit V2 features 32 voices of
polyphony, 640 presets (384 ROM, 256 RAM), is 16 part multitimbral
and has 6 analog outputs. Edit and tweak Orbit V2's sounds to express
your unique creative vision by using its powerful filters, MIDI
synchronized LFOs, and MIDIPatch Modulation System. If that's
not enough, Orbit V2 is also equipped with plenty of user-editable
"BEATS". With its unique sounds and flexibility, you can alter Orbit
V2's "BEATS" to fit your innovative style.
Talented E-mu® sound designers, along with programmers from the
European company, Control Synthesis LTD., spent thousands of hours
sampling, researching and creating Orbit V2's tremendous sound set.
Orbit V2's waveforms were gathered from all around the world, and
were especially chosen to exploit Orbit V2's dynamic synth
parameters. Deep, pulsating basses, ambient, melodic pads, cutting
edge percussion and drums, in your face synths and massive effects
and hits - they are all here and carefully prepared to be the ideal
sound set for dance music.
BEATS Mode - the heart of Orbit V2
Orbit V2's "BEATS Mode" has 100 drum loops which have been programmed
by some of the world's best programmers, and as cool as these drum
loops are, they only scratch the surface of what Orbit V2 can do.
"BEATS Mode" drum loops are not just static samples that lock you
into only one tempo and sound set - they use sequenced drum parts
that can play any of the sounds in Orbit V2. This means you can
change the tempo of a beat without changing the pitch, you can change
any or all of the sounds triggered and you can route any or all of
the sounds through Orbit V2's powerful synthesis functions. The level
of interactivity that "Beats Mode" provides is unprecedented in a
sound module, and the control over drum loops that "BEATS Mode"
provides puts Orbit in a totally different galaxy from other dance
Filters are an integral part of dance music, and E-mu's world famous
filters are a perfect fit for Orbit V2. There are 32 6-pole resonant
filters in Orbit V2 with 17 different types consisting of low-pass,
high-pass, band-pass, phaser, flanger, EQ, morphing and more. By
using Orbit V2's MIDIPatch Modulation System, filters can be routed
to real time controllers for complete expressiveness. Also, by using
the two synchronized LFOs as modulation sources to the filter, Orbit
V2 can create cool and interesting rhythmic filter lines.
Orbit V2's features and sound set are perfect for the dance
musician, but the synthesizer enthusiast will also find that Orbit V2
is out of this world. It's here, it's loud, it's monstrous and it
grooves - Feel the Energy.
