Hi

Did you get this sorted out? The reason I ask is that there is a Proteus 2000 with a World Expedition ROM in the SOS classifieds now for £420 in Slough. Data wheel a bit temperamental but some switch cleaner will sort that out.

The data wheel's rotary encoder will need taking apart and giving a good clean. Switch cleaner alone won't remove the loose carbon that's shorting across the many contacts inside. It's not that fiddly a task. I know because I had to do it on mine.

And Arpy is now in possession of my old Proteus 2000.

When Creative closed down Emu a bunch of us lost our contracts and the libraries we had created for them over the years. Luckily Tim Swartz brokered a licensing deal with them to sell the library soundfonts in various formats. Because of this I have soundfonts of every product ever created and the Planet Earth is one of them - one of my favourite libraries.

Yes, it's great, all of my percussion comes from it, plus a bit of Reaktor.
