Re: eBay advice - Have a look here

best ebay advice is don't buy stuff on ebay, unless their is absolutely no other option for the item.

Re: New analog Arturia synth?

i don't own the minibrute, but if i did i might be a little pissed about the sequencer on this new product (like damn i dropped 5 or 6 hundred and they get a sequencer for 3?)

i don't like fm8 much at all TBH, battery is good but i don't really feel the need for it for the most part.

Re: Deadmau5 buys a Fairlight CMI

Re: EPS Worth Resurrection?

for a 40 dollar repair, at worst you can flip it (should get you $150-250.)

Re: akai S-20, aliasing?

the zoom sampletrak has some real nice aliasing when sampling in 16hz and tuning down (for example sampling a record at 45+10% and tuning back to normal.) cheap too, 16 bit but low-fi sound. can't speak on the s20, the sampletrak is all i need for that type of unit so never tried any of the yamaha S...

Re: Any Roland SP-404 fans here?

i've tried the sp-303, 404sx, 505, 606, and settled on the 505. none of them are great for real complex stuff i use fl studio for that but for a fast, simple, fun unit for some lo-fi and boom bap the 505 fits the bill for me. the 404sx the sound wasn't really my thing and the $300 in my pocket was m...

Re: Akai! S20 vs. S1000

the s1000 isn't really the "s" to buy, the 900 and 950 are the 12bit ones. beyond that i'd just get a MPC or go the DAW route.

Re: EPS 16+ disks and other things

i've been wanting an ensoniq sampler (anywhere from eps classic to asr-10) but the output expansions seem VERY rare, almost never on ebay or anywhere else.

Re: Akai MPX8 Sample Player

I just saw this last night, and I'm into the idea, but is there anything a bit more full featured for a similar price (between $100 and $200)? Or should I just grab this? Sampler n00b. sp-303 or 505. no (legit) pitch on those though (if you need that feature.) but you can actually make songs on tho...

Re: zoom st-224?

the sampletrak is a cool sampler. i use it to grunge things up before sending it to other samplers/fl studio or for pitching and timestretch with boss/roland sps (almost all of which lack these essential features, so i tag team cuz i dig those machines.) a tip for a sp-1200 style sound, not quite as...

Re: Boss SP-505

to the above posters recommending the 606 over the 505, the 606s chop feature negates all the positives (mute groups etc) IMO unless you are chopping outside of the SP. the 606 auto-chop is horrible, and the manual chop took so long that it made me not want to try chopping questionable samples, in o...
