Service Manual

Hello,

I'm looking for a service manual for 6400ultra and the expansions for a long time now. Actually any service manual (5k,e4,esynth etc) would be of great use. Well best case would be schematics, especially for dwam, adat or even rfx tongue, but I guess this is impossible.
Anyway if anyone has any info please share with me, I try to work with and improve these samplers but without these info is like working blinded.

Thanks smile

Re: Service Manual

There's a load of docs on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/groups/EMUEIVMachines/files/    if you scroll down, the service info is called Eos.Technical.Documents - there are circuit diagrams etc.

Re: Service Manual

I did find the document you mention online though. So if this is the only one they have then I'm good to go smile thank you very much.

Re: Service Manual

Ok, This manual is really great I have to admit.
So here is the question, I plan to clone an expansion board from these manuals (let's say dwam for example tongue), Is it ok to clone it for some of you guys if interested or is it legally problematic ?

Re: Service Manual

The only time it becomes "legally problematic" is when you start accepting money for someone else's IP and they find out about it. Creative owns all of the E-MU catalogue at this point (maybe Dave Rossum still retains the rights to some stuff?). Besides the obvious pitfalls associated with that, not sure what the demand would be? I've got a DWAM myself. Would it be cheaper than ones you can buy on eBay?

Now, if you could clone the RFX-32 card and get rid of the bugs.... I'd pay handsomely for that! Or even rewrite EOS to add features, that'd be impressive.

Re: Service Manual

Well actually under further investigation, every single board has a custom logic,fpga or whatever with custom code running on it .. even the dwam . So I guess nothing can be done without having the hardware and reverse engineering some things, even then maybe still impossible. RFX-32 would be out of the question anyway though with a custom dsp.A custom os would be the most feasible choice I guess, but my knowledge stops on hardware .
