It's baaaack... and it's Baaaad.

Here's an ad from 1994 for the E-mu SP-1200.

"Notice how the major Rap and Hip-Hop producers always seem to come up with those 'signature' grooves that rattle your bones?"

Yes, yes I do.

Hopefully this picture enlarges when you click on it so you can get a closer look. Blogger can suck sometimes. If not, this post is next to pointless.


  1. If the parts could still be obtained for the SP E-Mu would probably still be making it today.

    I recently got an SP12 Turbo and a floppy drive for it, and I've been using it more than my MPC. Just a fun machine period. Incredibly basic . . . but no chump. People held onto it for a reason, even when much technically superior options were available, and it was more than the 12-bit 'crunch.'

  2. Ah yes, the Commodore 1451 disk drive if I'm not mistaken, correct? Enjoy it!

  3. Yep, I got a 1541-II (the last revision) and 100 never used disks. I'm seriously tempted to get an s950 or emax and not go back to the MPC.
