64-bit Streaming Sampling Synthesizer with Multi-core support.

The E-MU Emulator X3 Streaming Sampling Synthesizer offers both 32-bit and native 64-bit applications, multi-processor and multi-threading support. More exciting features have been added to the extraordinary capabilities of this instrument.

Improved and Vista compatible Xstream 24-bit/129kHz Streaming Engine-32-bit and native 64-bit applications optimized for multi-core and multi-threaded processors. Xstream intelligently balances the processing load across all available resources for exceptional performance.

Region Xplode Beat Slicer

This great feature translates recorded drum parts into MIDI files. The Xplode function generates new voices from the selected Region, then creates a MIDI file that maps the new regions to MIDI notes. Just import the Standard MIDI File into your favorite MIDI sequencer and have authentic drum grooves under your control.

Tempo Map Export

TwistaLoop can now analyze and export the Tempo Map of a song. This indispensable tool allows you to synchronize a rhythm track to a performance that was recorded without a metronome. You sequencer will "groove" with you instead of marching to its own beat.


The Xtractor is an audio manipulation tool that can cut or boost audio levels based on stereo position and frequency. If a song was mixed using stereo panning, this tool allows specific instruments or vocals to be removed, isolated, or pitch shifted. You can remove or isolate vocals, basses, or other instruments, process them and then return them to the mix if you like. The Xtractor is also a powerful analysis tool, since it visually displays the location of each instrument in a stereo mix.

Pros:Powerful and amazing. The sound quality for is pretty crisp and sharp. Nice effects and easy to edit clips. This version of Emulator does not eat a lot of CPU like past versions. Comes with a ton of sounds. Great for people who like to chop and sample. Cons: Twista Loop needs a bit more work. Sample processing could be better for high quality recordings. Could refresh the sound library. Overall: Not bad. A good bang for the buck.
