Great deals on musical instruments

The LONGboard and SHORTboard are completely new instruments combining great feeling 61-note or 49-note MIDI controller keyboards with a 128-voice professional sample-based instrument.

In addition both of the keyboards feature 32-bit effects and a world-class 64MB sound set.

Michael Lee, Marketing Manager of E-MU Systems stated: "We're very excited about the release of these high-performance keyboards."

"The key beds feel great and the sound set is really outstanding, containing all the essential instruments a working keyboard player needs."

Both instruments feature a 64MB sound set containing a complete range of classic keyboard instruments such as: Grand Pianos, Electric Pianos, B3s, Clavinets, Solina-Moog-OB-Prophet-Juno-TB synthesizer leads and basses, as well a General MIDI sound set.

Sounds can be modified during performance using six controller knobs, pitch and mod wheels, controller pedal, footswitch and the octave transpose buttons.

The LONGboard and SHORTboard are based on the new E-MU 8030 platform, which performs super high-quality pitch interpolation for 128 voices, as well as generating 256 envelope generators, 128 LFOs, 128 low-pass fillters (12dB/octave with resonance), 128 DCAs and 32-bit effects processing.

"The advanced technology contained in this keyboard is astounding," said Michael Lee. "Because of the 8030 chip, we're able to offer a truly professional keyboard at an unbelievable price point."

The LONGboard is priced at 399.99 Euros and the SHORTboard is priced at 299.99 Euros.
