Under The Radar /w Sam Willis (R&S): Part 4 – E-MU 4XT / Ensoniq EPS

For the final episode of our Under the Radar series, R&S/Ecstatic records’ Sam Willis (Primitive World), also a Point Blank instructor, sits down with our own Glenn McGlynn to go through two more iconic bits of hardware. The E-MU 4XT Ultra and the Ensoniq EPS 16+ the latter being used by the likes on Raekwon, Rza and Ghostface Killah. Both in a rack, these legendary samplers have dropped drastically in price over the years and are immensely powerful tools to have at your disposal when producing your tracks.

Sam Willis has recently participated in Fact Magazine’s ‘Against The Clock’ and is an instructor at Point Blank.

For those that haven’t been following the series, Sam and our own Declan McGlynn have been discussing several iconic instruments that may have perhaps passed ‘Under The Radar’ over the years. We have seen samplers and synths from the likes of Casio and Korg, and the insightful videos are all available on the Point Blank YouTube channel, as well as a library of Masterclasses, tutorials and more.
