HISTORY[edit]

Where? It would be helpful to include some information regarding the location of the company and its subsidiaries and manufacturing facilities, etc. 204.58.248.32 (talk) 13:17, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

E-Mu Systems was located on Green Hills Road in Scotts Valley, CA. Green Hills Road hosted many other "Silicon Beach" high tech companies including Borland, FREDNET, NaviSite, OC96 Networks, and RainMaker. --Fjb3 (talk) 01:11, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

I think the development center in Scotts Valley was shut down? At least no products nor press releases came out since 2010. Under "contact us" it no longer lists any address or phone. in Might be hard to find a source for this, however. W Nowicki (talk) 17:36, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
Furthermore, a support ticket form was not processed successfully just now. It produced an error message stating to contact the Webmaster, with no information on how to do that. In the E-mu forum, user posts and replies from any form of customer service are extremely old and new ones are rare. Updated drivers for "current" products are apparently unavailable, at least none more than beta versions. These are all further signs of a defunct company whose parent apparently will not admit to folding. This wastes countless hours of loyal users' time in hopeless searches and flogging dead-horse products. Even this article has not been updated in ages. It should be. Someone, somewhere, should put E-Mu and its users out of this misery. For that matter, the parent company is also elusive and non-responsive, at least in the US (see below).

Creative Labs' own site does list a US office:
Creative Labs, Inc.
1901 McCarthy Boulevard, Milpitas, CA 95035
Tel: +1 408 428 6600 (On Sept 9, 2013, this number was answered by Octel Voice Information Processing, a voice mail provider, with no option except to enter a mailbox number. Entering none produced a hold for "someone [who] will be with you shortly," resulting in endless rings.)
