SynthsE-Mu ⇝ E-Mu Proteus 2000

The Proteus 2000 is an expandable rompler that was very successful and spawned an entire line of rackmount synthesizers, keyboards, and grooveboxes based on its interchangeable ROM design.

It can fit up to four E-Mu expansion ROMs for a total of 128MB of sounds. It ships with the Composer ROM installed.

Other members of the Proteus 2000 family are the B-3, Mo' Phatt, Orbit 3, Planet Earth, Proteus 1000, Proteus 2500, Turbo Phatt, Vintage Pro, Virtuoso 2000, and XL-1. There are also keyboard versions, the MK-6, PK-6, XK-6, and Halo and sequencer versions - the MP-7, PX-7, and XL-7 command stations.

The Proteus series was later implemented in software as the Proteus VX for Windows XP.
