Emulator X3 from DigitalProAudioSamples.com

DIGITAL PRO AUDIO| SAMPLES| MIDI| LOOPS| SOUNDFONTS| E-MU| EMULATOR X3

wondering if anyone here has bought this discounted discontinued product from this company??? ive been trying to figure out how to activate my product after the death of the emu.com website - theres no way that i know to activate to use the app?

so how is this company still selling the app if u cannot activate it because emu.com is no more??

is anyone still using Emulator X3 ?

does anyone have experience having bought this app from this DigitalProAudioSamples company?

is there anyway to activate or is this a scam?

X3 is great and still very useful in my world. Granted that I only use in on Windows 7. If you get a legit un-opened copy of X3, it comes with an activation code that responds to Creative net server. I believe that you can still do challenge and response activation thru Creative support. I'd email Creative support and ask what the status is of enabling activation.

With EmulatorX I always asked myself how close are the libraries compared to the real hardware modules. I understand you won't get any lo-fi sound because you're using clean converters with your soundcard where back then on hardware modules converters didn't have the quality they have now. But other than that is there any difference ? Would be interesting to test a real Proteus Hardware Module against the library in EmulatorX.

No. This comes from the E-MU sound designer himself that created them.

Not sure what's happened but I've seen 2 or 3 threads like this since I've been a member.

I re-installed mine around a year ago and it was fine then, bit longer maybe. If you go and check the E-MU store page for the X3 it's broken, the links don't work.

E-MU® EMULATOR X3 SAMPLER SOFTWARE - THIS IS A DISCONTINUED PRODUCT

From their page. Hmmm, looks like they have pulled a shady one and I can't re-install it again...had it for years..surely it's not part of the agreement they can just cancel your use of it..

There was an online activation, challenge/response and an offline way.

The hardware sounds different/better, in the case of EX4T ultra anyway. There's no huge amount of coloring from the later EMUS, the pitching and various other things like effects do sound different. But most of the ones in software are pretty close, filters not that close, even though they are digital on both.

I wish this wasn't abandon-ware. I use still Proteus VX regularly (32 bit only)

So I guess its still good to hunt out on ebay for those hardware modules

It works great, runs on the latest windows 10. The issue is they have switched the activation server off it seems.

Digitalproaudiosamples.com is legit. The guy who runs it was a sound designer for emu if memory serves. I purchased x3 from him a couple of years ago and reinstalled with no issues a few months back.

X2 will only work with 32 bit windows. X3 works on 32bit or 64bit.

Makes sense now. I wonder if they prohibited him from telling people on the website that he's one of the developers of that plugin.

No, not correct. E-MU really only had 1-sound designer, Tim Swartz who is the only legit E-MU licensed dealer in the world to sell E-MU sounds and runs Digital Sound Factory | Virtual Instruments & Sample Libraries

Do you know what version you updated from/to? I'm about to install x3 on a new laptop and want to see if I need to get this patch.

Good news !
Digital Pro-Audio Samples seems to be gone

Their web-address just leads me to some casino crap

To bad, I was planning to get some licenses

Hope he will be back, but I am afraid not

Anyone know whats going on ?
