E-mu Emulator I

Released in 1981

The Emulator is an 8-bit, 8-voice digital sampler which was designed to compete with the enormously-expensive Fairlight CMI. And with its $10,000 price tag, the Emulator was significantly cheaper than the Fairlight systems, which ranged from $32,000 upward. The Emulator has 128KB of sample memory, and stores its samples on 5.25-inch floppy disks.
