How do I get the EXS MKII?
If you use Logic
5.5 or above, your EXS is automatically changed to the EXS mk
II. This is because the EXS already exists inside every
version of Logic. It's "built-in". You just need the
software key to unlock it. In Logic Pro 6 and above, its just
always there, nothing you need to do.
EXS24 mkII is a
software sampler. It plays back audio files, called
samples, that you load into
it. These samples are combined into tuned, ized
collections called sampler
instruments. As sampler instruments are based on
audio recordings, they are ideally suited to emulating real
instruments such as guitars, pianos, and drums. Supported
Sample Formats (loads or saves) include AIFF, Akai, EXS24,
SDII, SF2, WAV. With robust synthesis options, support for
sampled instruments of almost any size, and 16 outputs for
flexible mixing and sound processing, it’s easy to bring
sample-based sounds to your production.

EXS24 mkII Options Pop-Up Menu Commands
Options button in the upper-right corner of the Parameter
window. This opens the Options pop-up menu, which contains
the following commands:
Recall default EXS24 settings:
Recalls a neutral setting for all parameters in
the Parameter window. This provides a “clean slate” when
adjusting the parameters of your sampler instrument.
Recall settings from instrument:
Recalls the original parameter settings of the
loaded sampler instrument. This parameter is useful if
you’ve been overzealous with your tweaking and want to
return to the original sampler instrument parameter
Save settings to instrument:
Stores the current parameter values of the
Parameter window in the sampler instrument file. When
the instrument is reloaded, these values are recalled.
Delete settings from instrument:
Removes the stored settings (Parameter window
values) from the sampler instrument file.
Rename instrument: Opens a
file save dialog, allowing you to rename the loaded
instrument. This overwrites the existing instrument
Save instrument as: Opens
a file save dialog, allowing you to enter an alternative
name for the loaded instrument. This preserves the
original name and sampler instrument file, and creates a
new sampler instrument—a copy.
is a good, safe option to use, as any projects or
templates that use the originally named sampler instrument
will work as expected.
Delete instrument: Deletes
the loaded sampler instrument.
(Recall default EXS24 mkI
settings): Recalls the parameter settings of
sampler instruments created in the older version of the
EXS24—notably, the modulation paths. This parameter is
not relevant for sampler instruments created in the

a ReCycle instrument. If no ReCycle instrument is
selected, this option is dimmed.

AKAI Convert window

commands launches a dialog with instructions about
performing these conversions.
Preferences: Opens the
EXS24 mkII preferences
Virtual Memory: Opens a
configuration window for the EXS24 mkII’s virtual memory
functions. Virtual memory allows samples of almost
unlimited length to be played back—by streaming audio
directly from the hard disk in real time. The virtual
memory window also allows you to enable direct access to
system memory for the EXS24 mkII—in systems with 5 GB of
RAM or more.
EXSP24 mkII is an update to the earlier EXSP24. In 2007
the product was discontinued and Logic Express now
includes the full EXS24 sampler instead of this sample
player. EXSP24 mkII (which stands for "Emagic Xtreme
Sample Player 24-bit, mark II") plays samples with bit
depths from 8 to 24, at sample rates from 11 kHz to 96
kHz, using sample formats including AIFF, EXS24, WAV,
SDII, SoundFont2, and AKAI S1000/3000, and with up to
