E-MU CD List

Here is a full list of all banks, presets and samples for approx. 20 of the E-MU factory CDs, including an Akai FX CD which I had at the time: E-MU-CD-List-v106

The file is a zipped text file, with each column separated by tabs so it can be opened with a spreadsheet or database application for sorting/searching/printing. You may want to delete or edit some of the columns, such as CD number and Folder number, as they are specific to my setup. Having full lists sorted/printed in 'preset name' or 'sample name' order make it easy to locate a specific sound without having to browse through each CD.

The list was created to catalogue my own set of samples using a home-grown free utility DecodeEMU.  Unfortunately, the utility can only handle E4 banks as the E3/ESI formats were too difficult to automate and had to be decoded with manual intervention.
Because of this, the E3 preset & sample ident numbers are tagged with a '?' as they are only guesses. The actual names are correct to the best of my abilities, but I cannot guarantee them without checking each one on the sampler.

If you spot any glaring errors (or have a better list), please let me know.

For interest, there's an overview of the E-MU factory CD set here, but it doesn't include individual sample names and is hyperlink-based so is not easily viewable/searchable in its entirety.
 
See also the EMU Reorder utility.

The factory samples have had a few knocks from some users, but having generated the list, hats off to E-MU for putting in this staggering amount of work.

Tab-separated files

If you convert the downloaded file into an Excel spreadsheet, then decide later to revert to a tab-separated text file by using the 'save as... text' option, you'll find extra double-quotes around fields containing certain punctuation characters, such as commas and quotes. This is a known problem with Excel, and one solution is to use a macro to save the data.

Click here for a macro based on one from the internet; copy & paste the contents into your Excel macros (click Tools, Macros). When run, it prompts for a 'save as' filename, then writes all cells to it... without the quotes! Tested ok with Excel 2000 & 2003. Contact me if any problems.
