Information

The EM-1 is a production station designed for dance music that makes it easy for anyone from beginner to enthusiast to create original music. You can edit sounds intuitively by using the front panel knobs and keys, and easily create complete rhythms and phrase patterns without requiring any additional equipment. The EM-1 is the ideal tool for any musician, DJ, sound creator, or DTM user who wants an easy way to add originality to their music. Main features • The EM-1 has eight Drum parts and two synth parts, and you can assign sounds to each part and edit them. • By combining rhythm patterns created for each Drum part together with phrase patterns created for each synth part, you can easily create a song using no additional equipment. • Internal memory contains numerous Drum waves (144 types) and synth waves (50 types), giving you access to a wide range of sonic expression. • Up to 256 patterns (maximum of 64 steps each) can be created using the Sample data and stored in internal memory. • The EM-1 provides a Motion Sequence function that can record and loop knob movements, and can be recorded for each part of each pattern. • By combining multiple patterns and adding event data such as knob movements, you can create and save up to sixteen songs. • You can choose from realtime recording, step recording, and note editing. • Since sounds and rhythm or phrase patterns can be modified instantly, you can use these changes as part of your live performance expression. • Eleven types of effect plus tempo delay are provided, and an Effect/Delay Motion Sequence function allows knob movements to be recorded. • A Keyboard function lets you use the sixteen step keys as a Keyboard on which to perform. • The Pattern Set play function lets you assign 64 different patterns to the 16 step keys, and successively select and play them. • Tap Tempo and MIDI Clock can be used to synchronize the performance with an external sequencer, turntable, etc. • The EM-1 can be controlled from an external sequencer or Keyboard as a MIDI sound module. • The MIDI Dump function lets you save data on a computer or external sequencer etc. The data you create on the EM-1 Patterns and songs that you create on the EM-1 by editing will return to their un-edited state if you select a different pattern or song, or turn off the power before performing the Write operation. If you wish to save an edited pattern, song, or global data, be sure to perform the Write operation. Even after Writing the edited data, it is still possible to restore all songs and patterns etc. to the factory settings.
