Cool 8-bit Sampler Software & Hacks:
Some cool finds for Emulator II and Ensoniq Mirage owners. Previews to an Emulator II Editor for OSX! As well as a custom Ensoniq Mirage Disk to control the Analog Filter with the Pitch Bend Wheel! Check it out:
EMU Emulator II Sound Editor on OS X from the creator. Maybe post to the video and ask how we can get a copy?!!! This looks wonderful.
EMU Emulator II Sound Editor on Mac OSX This program allows you to send and receive Emulator II samples and bank Images and manage this data on OSX. It is faster to send a bank by RS422 as load it from a floppy drive.

Control the filter on your Ensoniq Mirage with the PitchBend wheel with a custom hacked OS disk! This video is not from the author of the Disk. You can find it on the Mirage yahoo user group. This one is a bit bouncy due to being filmed with hand held camera phone. But you can get the idea:
Ensoniq Mirage – OS – Filter control using PitchBend Wheel.
Also if you want to change it so that the Filter is swept via Mod Wheel. If you open the image with a hex editor, around $8ada (offset will be $0ada from the start of the file) should see the values b6 90 09 – if you change 09 to 0b it should then work with the mod wheel. Very cool. The mod wheel may be useful since it doesn’t ‘snap’ back to center.
