E-MU Systems Proteus 2000 Vintage MIDI Module Classic Synthesiser Sounds 1U Rack Unit

The Proteus 2000 is a reincarnation of the economic Proteus rack module series of the early nineties. While its synthesis architecture is virtually the same as the original Proteus, the Proteus 2000 is packed with major new features, sounds and expandability for the most demanding professionals!

It features 128-voice polyphony and 32 MIDI channels allowing it to handle even your most complex MIDI sequences. It ships with a whopping 32 MB of sample ROM memory which is expandable up to 128 MB using four internal ROM slots! The sounds cover the whole spectrum of synthesiser type sounds, from real instruments to bizarre sounds and effects. (Vintage Synth Explorer)
