E-MU Systems Emax I SE plus Sampler/Baldwin Ike

via this auction

"This Baldwin IKE has been completely transformed into an E-mu EMAX 1 SE Plus running the latest operating system (OS 1.0 Plus), which allows for hard drive support via SCSI! This unit does it all!

Beautiful Blue OLED Display
Custom EMAX SE Overlay (contains all function/menu shortcuts)
Internal SCSI2SD Drive (4 "drives" on one SD card with 35 banks each; the first SCSI ID is fully loaded with a "best of" the Factory E-mu samples, the other 3 SCSI IDs are empty and ready for your creations!)
Loads entire banks in around 2 seconds
In addition to the SCSI2SD hard drive functionality, the 1.0 Plus Operating System contains all of the great/unique features of the EMAX SE Plus, including:

Spectrum Interpolation Synthesis: This provides a complete digital additive synthesizer. Up to 24 sine wave frequencies can be added to from Spectrums. These Spectrums can be placed at up to 24 time slice locations, so that the sound varies over time.

Transform Multiplication: TM synthesis imposes the harmonic characteristics of one sample upon a second sample to create a new sample.

This sampler is fully functional, and sounds like nothing else. I've listed it as Very Good for the following reasons:
There are a few cosmetic blemishes here and there, many of which I have captured via close-up image
The custom overlay fits perfectly, but the LEDs underneath are off center by about a millimeter; it is very minor, but worth noting
The bottom slider, which navigates through the menus, is slightly sensitive when at its lowest level/position; also very minor, but worth noting"
