E-MU Proteus VIRTUOSO 2000 Rackmount Synthesizer - with Orchestral Session ROM - Volume 1 and Volume 2
This is for an E-MU Proteus Virtuoso 2000 rackmount synthesizer and the 2 Orchestral Session Expansion ROMs - Volume 1 and Volume 2. The unit is in excellent condition and has spent its time with me in my rack in my smoke-free studio and everything works. There are the normal rack scratches, but nothing on the front or the display.
Serial no. 010203198. Model 9096
This unit comes with 2 expansion ROMs - Orchestral Session Volume 1 and Volume 2. The unit has 2 empty ROM slots for sound expansion. Please check out my other listings since I have a number of ROM chips for sale with a huge variety of sounds. It comes with 512 preset sounds in the USER ROM and these are a wide array of all kinds of incredible Orchestral sounds. This unit was specifically marketed as a complete symphonic orchestra.
I am changing my studio configuration and will no longer have room for this unit. It is a wonder and has a great library of sounds. The manufacturer's specs are below.
I am also selling all 12 of my expansion cards in separate listings, so, if you want those, please check out my other listings.
Everything in the picture will come with the unit. No manual.
From the Proteus website: The Virtuoso 2000 is a 128-voice orchestral sound module with 512 Presets for sounds - an entire orchestra in a single rack space! Featuring the "Orchestral Session" soundsets from E-mu, the sounds are great and they include violins, violas, celli, double basses, trumpets, French horns, trombones, bass trombones, tubas, piccolos, flutes, oboes, English horn, clarinets, bass clarinets, bassoons, contra bassoons, harp, orchestral bells, tubular bells, bell trees, celeste, xylophone, marimba and a percussion battery with over 20 instruments. With 128 voices, 32 MIDI channels, lightning-fast MIDI response and over 500 sounds, you can create the largest of orchestral ensembles.
Orchestral Session ROM Volume 1: This 32MB ROM offers you the most realistic and comprehensive collection
of section strings available - the same sounds featured in this Virtuoso 2000 sound module, complete with legato, spiccato, pizzicato
and tremolande samples, and includes special presets for 4 speaker
applications. It also offers you 32MB of world-class section strings that were all sampled
from the same professional symphony orchestra under ideal conditions.
Additional samples were recorded from the audience seats, allowing you
to blend more or less natural hall sound into your presets. E-MUs sound
designers then crafted these samples into more than just a collection of
orchestral sounds - they built a true virtual orchestra that is second
to none in realism and consistency across all of its instrument
sections. Combined with its companion ROM, Orchestral Sessions Vol. 2
(woodwinds, brass, percussion and solo strings) - that is also in the Virtuoso unit, E-MU puts a complete professional orchestra at your
Orchestral Session ROM Volume 2: This 32MB ROM offers you the most realistic and comprehensive
collection of woodwinds, brass, percussion and solo strings available -
the same sounds featured in this Virtuoso 2000 sound module, complete
with velocity switching between p/mf/ff samples, special presets for 4
speaker application and a percussion battery with over 20 instruments.
