guide to expansion roms

Quote
October 24, 2016
Here is a rough guide to the E-mu Proteus 2000 series Expansion Sound ROM's.

Updating for 2015. Guide prices here to help. Including ROM Part Numbers where available.

Pricing and value must be realized due to technological advances especially with regards to software instruments.

The original Composer sound set is now available in software. The FREE proteus VX software synth includes the entire composer sound set! this should make anyone pause for thought before buying a proteus 2000! Proteus LE bundled with the E-mu Xboard controllers also includes this sound set. The Composer sounds also come with ALL versions of E-mu Emulator X.

This presents a dilemma for any buyers: 128 Voice hardware synth or Plugin with full integration in your DAW with huge level of control-ability.

Update, E-mu Emulator X is now discontinued by Creative Labs. The Proteus VX is still available with limited operating system support. The original E-mu released sound libraries are now harder to obtain than the hardware expansion ROM's! Most of the Proteus X and Emulator X libraries are available from Digital Sound Factory, the Rob Papen sounds are NOT available via DSF.
2016 Update. **** Avoiding faulty E-MU ROM cards.****
If buying ANY of these ROMs get a guarantee from the seller that it passes E-MU diagnostics! To run a diagnostics test, power on the E-MU module with both left and right arrow keys held down. This will boot up the module in diagnostic mode. In this mode run the ROM Card test, if the card fails the test it is defective.
ROMS:

01    Part # AP10172-01 WO #P41998 Proteus 2000 Composer (CMPSR)
17    Part # AP12068-17 Proteus Pop Collection (P2500 or PROM1)

The Composer ROM has 8 banks giving a full 1024 preset patches! This is the original ROM Wave and patch data from the Proteus 1000 & 2000. Try not to pay more than $100 for the original composer rom considering it is available for free with Proteus VX.
9140 PROTEUS Pop Collection. Included with the Proteus 2500 Module and PK-6 Proteus Keys. This ROM uses the exact same 32 MEG sample set as the original E-mu Composer ROM but has an all new set of 640 preset patches. You may find a P2500 ROM with only 512 presets but these are rare and shipped with the first few Proteus 2500 modules only. The patch organization matches the newer ROM's with all basses under the BAS category rather than BS1, BS2... subcategories like the original.Target Price $125, has some excellent patches! well worth the extra over the composer ROM for this alone.
13    AP12068-13 W/O #58359 Mo Phatt
15    AP10498-15 W/O #59295 MP-7 Phatt
9062 Pure Phatt ROM 32MEG, 512 Patches of hiphop / rap sounds. Includes some very high quality percussion sounds and some great basses. Included with the MO'PHATT module, variations included with the MP-7 command station and MK-6. The MP-7 rom has KIT presets where the Mo'Phatt versions are BTS presets ready set up for beats mode. The MK-6 Mo Phatt Keys ROM has 128 extra patches not available anywhere else. This MK-6 rom is labelled MROM1. Target Price: $70 for the regular Pure Phatt ROM. Try not to pay no more than $100 for one of these ROMs. The MK-6 version may be worth a little more as it is scarce. Available in Proteus X software format for around $30 9064 ENSONIQ Project ROM 32MEG, Prob 512 Patches. This extremely rare ROM is very difficult to get, it contains patches originally released by Ensoniq on the EXP-1 Real World and EXP-3 Urban Dance expansion boards designed for the ASR-x and ZR series synths. Quite a mixed range of sounds including urban and world sounds. Target Price: $150, though due to rarity you might have to pay as much as $250 to get one of these in as new condition with the original box and manuals. E-mu have released this in software format in 3 separate volumes with many more patches. The Libraries are called Ensoniq ASR, Ensoniq ZR-76 and Ensoniq MR-76.
23    Part # AP12068-23 Vintage Collection
9065 Vintage Collection ROM 32MEG 512 Patches. Originally included with the Vintage Pro module and the Vintage Keys keyboard. Includes a wide selection of sounds from vintage synth and electronic keyboard instruments. If you want electric piano, organ and synth patches this may be the ROM you need. This is another pretty rare ROM and is reasonably difficult to find these days. Target Price: $150 if you can find the ROM alone for sale at a LOW price!. A Vintage Pro module could cost as much as $300 at today's prices. The Vintage Keys keyboard is very rare these days, expect to pay $400+ if you can find one. The Vintage Pro sound set is available in Proteus X format for around $50.
24    Part # AP12068-24 Protean Drums
9066 Protean Drum ROM 32MEG 512 Patches. Originally included with the PX-7 Command station. I don't believe the upgrade ROM was available for long and as the PX-7 was one of E-mu's last hardware synths this ROM is very scarce. This ROM is one of the best! has an unbelievable selection of Rhythm sounds, some of the drums are top notch. The "Cone Ripper" bass patch is brilliant too. Target Price $150. The Protean Drums sound set is available in Proteus X format for around $40
03  Part# AP10172-03 Protozoa
9082 Protozoa ROM 16MEG 512 Patches. Includes 128 patches from each of the Proteus 1,2 and 3 modules from the eighties. Some great sounds in here. Includes some fabulous electric piano sounds and a variety of world sounds too. The fourth bank is a composite bank of patches made from samples from all 3 modules. The patch categories and naming scheme is the same as the original Composer ROM. Target Price $100, this is only a 16 meg ROM and the sounds are available cheaply in the original modules. These sounds are available in Proteus X format as the Proteus Orbit Phat library. 9083 Definitive B-3 ROM Featured in the B-3 Module. Contains mainly Hammond Organ Variant sounds with a few extra patches of other types thrown in. Captures most useful Hammond draw-bar settings in this one ROM. If you are big on the Hammond sound this ROM will please you a lot! Target Price: $150 This ROM is quite scarce these days. the B3 modules including the ROM fetch some pretty high prices too. This soundset is also available in Proteus X format.
11   Part # AP12068-11 W/O #58421 World Expedition
9087 World Expedition ROM Originally fitted in the PLANET EARTH module. This ROM was sold for quite some time as an upgrade part, it is surprisingly hard to find these days. A great range of ethnic and world percussion sounds. Target Price:$150. This is also available in Proteus X format for around $40
22    Part # AP10498-22 W/O #60523 Sounds of the ZR (QROM1 / HALO)
9088 Sounds of the ZR featuring Perfect Piano ROM Originally fitted in the Ensoniq Halo keyboard. This ROM features a selection of everyday all around sounds, it complements the composer set quite well. Includes the Perfect Piano patch too. Target Price: $100. Again this is available in Proteus X format as the Ensoniq ZR-76 library.
06    Part # AP10172-06 WO #P59051 XLead xl-1 14    Part # AP12068-14 W/O #? XL-7 18    Part # AP10498-18: X-Lead v2 / XK-6, ROM-ID=14, (XROM1)
9089 X-LEAD ROM As fitted to the Xtreme Lead 1 module, XL-7 Command Station and XK-6 Xtreme Keys. This ROM has a few variants! the original 512 patch XL-1 ROM, the X-Lead V2 rom with 640 patches and the XL-7 ROM from the command station with the first 4 banks of the X-Lead 2. The XK-6 ROM has 640 patches but I am unsure whether these are the same as the X-Lead 2 in bank 4. Target Price $80, this is the most readily available and hence lowest cost upgrade ROM. Try to get the 5 bank version, pay no more than $50 for a 4 bank variant. The XL-1 soundset is available in Proteus X format for around $50 and is included with Emulator X 3.
04    Part # AP10172-04 W/O #P43293 original 3 Bank Techno ROM 16    Part # AP12068-16 W/O #60485 Beat Garden
9063 Beat Garden ROM + 9084 Techno Synth Construction Yard ROM These 2 ROM's form the sound set for the Orbit 3 Super Synth. 1024 Rob Papen trademark dance / techno / vintage patches Probably E-mu's greatest 2 ROM's. These contain a huge range of killer modern synth sounds. Target Price: $100 each. The Orbit 3 itself is now a $300 item but is not seen for sale very often. Both soundsets are available in Proteus X format for around $50 each. 9061 Peter Siedlaczek Advanced Orchestra ROM 32 megs of additional orchestral sounds again of high quality for the time of release but largely eclipsed by today's multi-gigabyte software libraries. This exact ROM is not available in software form but E-mu did release the Studio Orchestra library for Proteus X. 9085 Orchestral Sessions Vol.1 Section Strings ROM + 9086 Orchestral Sessions Vol.2 Woodwind, Brass, Percussion, Solo Strings ROM These two ROMS together were fitted to the Virtuoso 2000 classical module and contain some of the best classical sounds available on a hardware synth anywhere! of course not as good as new multi-gigabyte software libraries but this is a 128 note hardware system! zero cpu load is worth something right? The Virtuoso soundset is also available in Proteus X format for around $50. Additional Info: All Proteus X libraries are compatible with Proteus X, Proteus X LE, Proteus VX and Proteus X 2. The Proteus X libraries are also fully compatible with E-mu Emulator X in all versions. Operating system limitations: Only Emulator X 3 is currently fully 64 bit compatible. The Proteus X 2 and VX have been proven to work under the 32 bit versions of Vista and Windows 7 but can be very difficult to get working under the 64 bit versions of the newer operating systems. Proteus VX has been reported to work under Windows 7 64 bit when used within the 32 bit version of Cakewalk Sonar X1. **** All versions of Emulator X are now discontinued.*** **** Only Proteus VX is available, all other versions are discontinued. *** Software or Hardware? The big question: The $199 price tag of Emulator X 3 weighs up very well against a Proteus 2000 series sound module with extra Rom cards. Emulator X also provides hugely convenient features like the patch library system and quickly user defined controllers. On screen editing in the software is also hugely more intuitive than editing from the front panel of a rack synth module. If your system will run the free Proteus VX synth you have access to the entire range of sound libraries at a hugely lower cost than any hardware configuration. Plus the software version doesn't need MIDI cables or multiple audio cables to link into your DAW. It may be worth pressing an older Windows XP PC into service as a Proteus VX host to run the libraries and pipe digital audio straight into your main computer running Windows 7 64 Bit for example. Most of the Proteus 2000 sound sets are also available from Digital Sound Factory in SoundFont format which is great for X-fi and Audigy owners. It comes down to a decision on cost vs sound character. It's up to you if the character of the old E-mu hardware is that much better than its modern software equivalent. Also modern equivalents like Sampletank 3 include thousands of patches for less than the cost of some of the ROM's.

RELEASE NOTES: Proteus 2000 Version 1.11, April 11, 2000
OS Checksum reported after MIDI Download: 678D8BC8
OS Checksum reported after ROM Update: 9C8F8D37
This release contains fixes for serious bugs that were unfortunately found after version 1.10 shipped. It is primarily a bug fix release and not intended to introduce new features, though a few new items have found their way into this code.

The following information describes the changes in this code since the last customer release of Proteus 2000 code, Version 1.10.

Filter resources used for 12th order filters are now being freed correctly. This caused the most serious of problems, most noticeably causing voices to intermittently not sound at all. If the voice was stereo or chorused this could sound like hard panning, since only one channel of the pair was audible.
Editing Preset Patchcords when the preset being edited is on MIDI Channels other than the Basic Channel are now refreshed at the time of the edit and use the new Patchcord connections in all referenced instances immediately. Before, a program change was required on any of the other MIDI channels to hear the effect of the edited cord.
LED indications for I-L knobs now work correctly, again. Cases where the LEDs would not light have been resolved. This bug was originally found in 1.04 code and fixed in 1.05 but was inadvertently omitted from the 1.10 build.
Saving a MultiSetup no longer throws away all edits in the current preset edit buffer.
Knob response is greatly improved.
New Feature - Added a Copy Preset Cords item in the Copy/Save menu. This copies all the preset cord settings from a specified source preset into the current preset edit buffer.
RELEASE NOTES: Proteus 2000 Version 1.10, March 14, 2000
Proteus 2000 OS Version 1.10
OS Checksum reported after MIDI Download: 16594E59
OS Checksum reported after ROM Update: 6177FF50
The following information describes the changes in this code since the last customer release of Proteus 2000 code, Version 1.05.

Preset Patchcords, Ramper and Lag Processor
The 1.10 release introduces to the Proteus 2000 user the new Preset Patchcord implementation developed for the B-3 module. This feature includes support for a Preset Level Lag Processor, Ramp Generator and summing cord destinations.

WARNING: Presets created prior to 1.10 that use Preset Patchcords (previously labeled FX PATCHCORDS) assigned to FX Send destinations could have sonic differences if presets have more than one preset cord assigned to an FXSend amount. In previous versions of code, the last cord defined in the patch bay overrode all other cords. Because of this, there was no real reason to use multiple cords, but multiple assignments may have been made unwittingly. Since multiple cords now sum to their destinations, presets could sound different.

NOTE: Existing Editor/Librarians should work fine for storing 1.10 presets, though they may have troubles displaying the new patchcord sources and destinations.

Sound Authoring
This release introduces Sound Authoring to the Proteus 2000 user. This feature allows you to copy a bank of user presets to a Flash SIMM that was created on an E4 Ultra. See the Sound Authoring documentation for a full description of this feature. There are no backwards compatibility issues for existing P2k users with this feature.

12th Order Filters, Dynamic Voice/Filter Allocation
Proteus 1.10 now has the 12th order filters and Dynamic Voice Allocation developed for Audity 2.0. Presets developed with these new filters will not sound the same in pre-1.10 software; unsupported filters play a default null filter. Note that unlike Audity 2.0 where adding DVA potentially increased the polyphony of Audity (when using 6th order filters), in Proteus it can actually decrease the polyphony. Playing a note on a layer that uses a 12th order filter effectively uses 2-6th order voice channels.

MIDI All Notes Off/All Sound Off/Reset All Controllers - The response to these MIDI Mode Messages has changed in OS 1.10 to be compliant with the MIDI 1.0 Spec. In previous versions of software these messages had a number of bugs. Note that these changes could affect compatibility with sequences authored with earlier versions of Proteus software.

In previous versions the software did not honor the MIDI channel of these messages. Instead, it incorrectly affected all channels. It now correctly only affects the notes started on the MIDI channel of the message. If you want All Notes Off on all MIDI channels you must send individual messages for each channel.

In addition, All Notes Off now correctly honors the state of the sustain pedal. It will no longer shut off notes if the sustain pedal is down on its channel at the time of receipt of the mode message. This behavior is especially important to owners of certain keyboards that send All Notes Off whenever all keys are released (i.e. Kawai, Roland).

Also, receipt of All Notes Off now correctly puts the targeted notes into the release phase instead of shutting down the voice immediately.

All Notes Off is basically equivalent to sending Note Off messages on all notes of a particular MIDI channel. This means that if the sustain pedal is held, the notes are not shut down, but remain in the sustain state until the pedal is released. If the sustain pedal is not down, the notes go to the release phase, allowing the volume envelope to control the shutdown of the notes. All Notes Off should not be used as a Panic message to shut down hung notes since notes will not be turned off if the current state of the sustain pedal is down. In addition, the sound will not necessarily stop immediately, since it goes to the release phase, which means the behavior is preset dependent. If you want the sounds to always shut down immediately, you should be using the All Sound Off message instead.

All Sound Off also incorrectly ignored the channel of the message in pre-1.10 software. It now correctly honors the channel. All Sound Off is different from All Notes Off in that it does not look at the state of the sustain pedal, and shuts off the sound of the notes immediately, ignoring the volume envelope. This is the message to use if you want to send a Panic message because notes are hung. Note though that this is still a channel based message, so if you really want ALL sound off for the whole box, you need to send this message on each of the active MIDI channels.

Note that if sequences were written assuming the behavior of the pre-1.10 Proteus 2000 software they will need to be re-worked by the user. There has been no attempt to maintain compatibility, since this is considered a bug in the old implementation.

Miscellaneous Improvements
The Screen now refreshes correctly after a Sysex Program Change
Intermittent incorrect FX Delay Times after a series of rapid Program Changes has been fixed.
RELEASE NOTES: Proteus 2000 Version 1.05, Nov. 23, 1999
Problems Fixed in Version 1.05
The LED indicators for Realtime Controller Knobs I-L now work correctly. Conditions where the LEDs would not light have been resolved.
Interrmittent Fatal Errors in the Bank Copy screen have been eliminated.
CRCs
If you update via MIDI download the CRC reported after the download and the OS checksum reported in Diagnostics is 26079B7D.
If you update via OS-on-ROM the OS checksum reported in Diagnostics is 7616BB9C.
RELEASE NOTES: Proteus 2000 Version 1.04, Sept. 20, 1999
New Features and Bug Fixes in Version 1.04
New feature: Tempo Based FX B Delays.
Improved signal-to-noise reverb microcode.
Improved Note-on velocity ramp-up.
Tempo controller now works in MIDI Omni mode.
The unit no longer hangs when using Tempo-based filter envelopes with repeat on and sending a MIDI controller to control FEnvRts.
User data corruption problems when sending a tuning table with a table number higher than the number of user tuning tables in the unit have been eliminated.
Assigning presets to channels via individual SysEx parameter messages now works correctly.
Sysex Copy Preset message now correctly copies all parameters.
Sysex Dump Preset Common parameters message now processes all parameters correctly.
Sysex tuning table dumps no longer ignore the last note value.
Sysex single note tuning changes no longer divide the fine tune number in half.
External tempo calculation jitter problems have been fixed. Also the Tempo screen now updates correctly when using external tempo.
RANDOMIZE preset screen no longer always displays USER as the SIMM ID even if the preset on the basic channel is a ROM preset.
Supports new motherboard hardware (PC-10182).
CRCs
If you update via MIDI download the CRC is 2F7577ED.
RELEASE NOTES: Proteus 2000 Version 1.03 Final, July 14, 1999
Problems Fixed in Version 1.03
"User / (not installed)" no longer shows up in the Demo screen.
The MIDI "Reset all controllers" message now behaves differently. A message with parameter value = 0 resets only the pitchwheel, mod wheel, pressure and footswitches. A message with parameter value = 127 resets all of these plus volume and pan. Messages with any other parameter value are ignored. The controllers attached to the knobs are no longer affected by Reset All Controllers messages. This fixes a user complaint about using Proteus 2000 with Cakewalk, which by default sends a Reset All Controllers message after every 'Stop' command. In earlier Proteii software, this message set **all** controllers to zero, which tended to cut off the filters and have other undesirable effects.
FX cords now behave correctly when switching between presets. An example of this was switching from the 2nd preset "kb4:Yo My Dynos" and the 1st preset "kb1:Dynamic Grand"; the piano sound would be incorrectly sent to the delay effect. The problem occurred when switching to presets that had a controller routed to an FX send in the FX cords, and also had that controller's initial controller value set to zero.
Problems with a newly selected preset's initial controllers affecting held notes when switching between presets have been addressed. This was easily heard by turning on Audition or just holding a chord and then switching between presets. Held notes were usually undesirably affected by the new preset's initial controller amounts, causing notes with long releases, lowered filters, etc. Now Controllers A-H only affect held notes if that preset is the current preset on the MIDI channel.
CRCs

If you update via MIDI download the CRC is E9EDC219.
