E-MU Morpheus

E-MU Morpheus Sound Module
The E-MU Morpheus is a Z-plane synthesizer with 8MB of ROM samples comprised of five preset banks. The first three are internal with the last two being accessed via the front panel card slot. This slot is PCMCIA compliant and accepts either ROM cards or user RAM cards. Each of the five banks contain 128 presets. The hyper presets are used for layering other presets, or setting up keyboard zones for using multiple presets with different keys.

Bank 0 — User RAM presets
Bank 1 — ROM presets
Bank 2 — Hyper presets (User editable)
Bank 3 — Card presets *
Bank 4 — Card Hyper presets *
* if using a RAM card, banks 3 and 4 are user editable.

The 8MB sound ROM contains a variety of samples including drums and percussion, guitars, choirs, harmonics, pianos, strings, organs, and synths.

ROM Cards
E-MU issued a total of 4 ROM cards for the Morpheus. Each card adds 1 preset bank, 1 Hyper preset bank and 16 MIDI maps.

9200 – Morpheus Expanded
9201 – Film Score Composer
9202 – Dance Rage
9203 – Song Writer

RAM Cards
The Morpheus uses a 256kB PCMCIA SRAM Type I designed with a dual battery system. The primary battery is a replaceable but non rechargeable 3V lithium battery which lasts for about 10 years. There is a second on-board rechargeable but non replaceable battery for data retention during the primary battery change. This design allows replacement of the primary battery without data loss for approximately 20 minutes.
