The U110/220s are great because they can be had for ridiculous cheap. The keyboard DXes are overpriced at this point, I think. A lot of people seem to pass on TX802s, and they're great boxes.

I've got to give it to Boss this year, the new space echo, the rotary sim and fender deluxe reverb are freaking awesome.

There was talk on the hardsid ML about the possibility of a USB hardsid, but I haven't heard anything since.

I like funky old mixers and usually pick up nicer ones but I've never paid more than about 100USD. Even had an old sunn console 16x4 with inserts on every chan, 2 loops and sweepable mids and only paid 40, iirc. Whether it's worth what you paid is something only you can decide. Its resale value prob...

What features are you looking for that FL doesn't provide? Why are you unhappy with it? That's what you need to think about before thinking about moving on.

Reason's nice because you can rewire it and just use it as a big softsynth rack, but I wouldn't use it alone, personally.

I love Yamaha's UIs generally, but it's a pretty common opinion that they're obtuse and tough to get around.
I think some of us are just as batshit crazy as the yamaha engineer's so it doesn't faze us. ;)

PLEASE! Even if you do not need a sampler, you can sell this one for more than I'm asking. No kidding.
Apparently not :/
Totally worth it though, it'll probably continue to be one of the most powerful hardware samplers ever made. I can't imagine anyone coming out with a new racksampler.

not a shill, just a fan

If you're just looking for presets to poke and a fairly simple interface, wusikstation is inexpensive and sounds great. It can grow with you if you decide to get into deeper programming. http://www.wusik.com

Nothing right now is as good a deal as Late 90s Samplers. It's because most people think that they sound the same as softsamplers... Indeed. It is INSANE to me that you can get loaded S5000s all day for under $500. Even the S6000 with hot removable-face-action isn't much more. These things were tho...

Re: BUY DIRECTWAVE

It must be said that the newest versions of FL are much better for MIDI than the older ones though. Meh. I still can't easily use more than one controller at once. The sync to midi clock beta (read: alpha) executable they had was, what, three versions ago and went nowhere. It's just frustrating, mu...

Crackling is usually buffer underruns. If you don't have an ASIO card, you might want to look into download ASIO4all http://www.asio4all.com/ which should help.
Either way, try increasing your buffer size: http://flstudio.com/help/html/glossary_underrun.htm

Passed by an SP-606 on my way to oogling the MC-808 for an hour.
It's not exactly aimed at the MPC crowd like the sp606 was, but damn that thing is hot.

OLD SKOOL S3kr3t

On a shoe-string, even. Furman gate = cheap as free, quad gate (qn44, iirc) = a little bit more, but four, four, four gates in one add cheapo drum machine. I use an old korg DDM-220, it doesn't sync to midi, but I don't really need it to. Route drum machine to KEY input on gate, set gate to trip whe...
