Re: Boss SP-505

One thing I've noticed about the 505, is you can't just jump into it like the 202/303. You need the instruction manual, so that you know how to sample, select the right clipboard, auto-chop samples into pitch, so that you can play them chromaticly with a keyboard, etc...But all you need to do is dl ...

Re: MOOG Minifooger(s)!

So no phaser, murfs, chorus/flange, or freq. But we get a filter, ring mod, tremolo, overdrive, delay, and boost. I think they'll have less CV ins/out, but it should be possible to chain them to their bigger brothers, and a few CP-251's, or any Moog Synth, so for the price they dropped down to, you ...

Re: Elektron to replace... Everything?

If I was going to need to keep a rig at it's most basic, yet functional, and have less to bring, then without a doubt, it'd be Elektron gear. MonoMachine and A4 would cover the synths, and MD/Octatrack for drums or samples. You could throw a MPC2k/1k/4k/5k in the mix if you wanted to have 1 piece of...

Re: Novation A-Station discussion

I've wanted to get a A Station, but they seem a bit hard to find. Even eBay they don't pop up too often, so SOMEBODY out there ain't selling these for the love of the unit.

Re: SP-202 and 303

Like I said, it's got a cult following, but you might be right. Sooner or later it's going to fall into the obscure toy novelty area, if the SM cards are too high, and people just decide the newer models are where it's at. To each their own, but if you pair a sp202 with a dr202, the 202 can trigget ...

Re: Boss SP-505

I had a 606, but I didn't jell with it to well, when I accidently deleted all the internal sounds. (When I was only trying to get rid of a sample). :o But I did like the dual effects processor, so if I found a 606, I might give it another shot if it's got the better sequencer and can slave other gea...

Re: Good FX pedals for my synths?

It's not always easy to know what are the best pedals to go with a synth, and most the time, you can't ask to use guitar pedals on a synth at your local Guitar Center. Pawn stores don't ever have a proper setup to use either, so most of the time, you're just going to have a lot of trial and error. I...

Re: Novation X Station - Pleasantly surprised

I miss my X-station. I don't think I scratched the surface of everything it was capable of, but I pawned it and couldn't keep the store from selling it. I'm thinking of looking for another.

These are starting to go up in price, and are hard to find on eBay now, so if you come across one, try not to spend more than $200, and hopefully you get a SM card thrown in...

Re: Portable sampler for my XL-7?

A SP303/404/505/555/606 might be what you're after.

Do your homework, and see what unit has/does what you need it to, but the XL7 should be able to trigger it, no sweat.

Re: SP-202 and 303

There's still some love out there for the 202, because it's so easy to use, not as many features, and lo-fi. The 303 might have more effects, but it might be a less is more approach to the 202. However, the problem is the SM 5v cards are very hard to find, and jacked up if you do. If you find a 202,...

Re: Any Roland SP-404 fans here?

It's on my wishlist to go with my sp505, but I'm in no hurry to find one right now. I won't pay for a new one, but if I find a good deal on a used one, I'll jump at it.

Re: Akai! S20 vs. S1000

The Akai S20 never had any effects, and as most people point out, was a smaller version of the Remix16 dj sampler. But the only thing I can really do with it is pitch samples up/down, and play samples backward. Other than that, it's not really a deep sampler with tons of filters, lfos, or anything t...
