Emu Proteus 2500 Sound Module
A contender for the most powerful sound module produced. The 19" rackmount 4u size gives it a large
front panel able to take lots of knobs and buttons, most of which are assignable. About
twice as powerful as the 2000 range, this thing is blessed with a pattern sequencer as well which can
make it more useful as a live tool, although these days with mobile computing being both more
prevalent and reliable, its use is not that likely.
Some good basic sounds, not earth moving
by any means, but a decent pallette from which to build some music. The sysex implementation
is not good however and remote managers such as sound diver have major problems with this unit.
That said its front panel lends itself to storage on the unit and I have had no problems in
terms of calling back song packages using the snapshot functions.
Decent workhorse kit that won't
break the bank.
