    It's not easy fitting an $18000 grand piano into a 1U-high half-rack box, but E-mu haven't let that deter them. Has their dedication paid off?


    OVER THE YEARS, E-mu Systems have carved out a niche for themselves in the sampler market with their Emulator series and Emax samplers - and in the process they've built up a fair amount of sampling expertise and a sizeable and well-respected sample library. Bearing in mind that many musicians want sampled sounds without the hassle of having to sample them, it was a logical step for the company to make some of their samples available in a preset sample playback unit - which is precisely what they did last year with the Proteus.

    The success of that unit has clearly prompted them to think about other variations on the sample playback theme, and what they've come up with are two 1U-high, half-rack, 16-bit true stereo piano modules, the Proformance/1 and the Proformance/1+. The former is given over entirely to sampled acoustic pianos, while the latter augments the acoustic pianos with electric piano, organ, electric and acoustic basses and vibes. These are purely preset sounds - there's nothing you can do to change them. Don't expect multitimbral MIDI operation, either, as the Proformance modules are designed to sit on one MIDI channel for one specific purpose: to provide keyboard players with performance-orientated sounds which can be used on an everyday basis.
