SP-808 is cheap!

Anbody got an opinion on the SP-808. If you don't mind it's massive size, using zip disks, and small pads you might find one of them cheap. You might be able to win one at $150 - $200. I just recently got a Korg ESX for $359 and it was very hard to decide between it and the 404. If I do get another ...

I just got my ESX last week, but read up in your manual on keyboard parts, stretch parts, and slice parts. Learn what each one is and what kind of samples can be used for each one. From what I've read, I'd suggest ONLY use mono samples! Don't do stereo until you can't do any more mono. Get out the m...

Just layer sounds, samples, and effects like crazy till you come up with something new and cool!
The possibilities are endless with samplers and synths. We've blown way past the 80s.
Check out Aphex Twin, Mr. Oizo, Venetian Snares, Fatboy Slim, Luke Vibert, etc.

Thanks for all the samples. I'll be getting my new sampler tomorrow, and you've helped remind me about the freesound project website. I'll try and upload some of my sounds there sometime.

I got a Korg ESX sampler coming in the mail, and I'm going to load vintage drum machine samples. Plus I've made samples of my old Boss DR-202, Zoom SB-246 "great hip hop", and Korg EM-1. Anyone have MC-505, 307, or some AWESOME JoMoX samples? I'll trade you! I've got Gigs of dj samples and old drum ...
