Re: Drum Samplers

I heard the MPC500 is kind of an annoying dissappointment. Not from where I'm sitting. Mine is a little gem :) Do you use it extensively? Curious how long you have had it and if you like the USB communication. Mine is a pre-production model (I freelance as a sound designer and beta tester for, amon...

The sampling features on the Fairlight were pretty much an after thought, almost not making it to the finished product :shock: :o

Many people write off the Fairlight as a viable tool nowadays because they consider it to have been surpassed many times over. A very learned friend and colleague of mine often jokingly says his laptop soundcard has more power than a fully expanded CMI, and to a point, it's true, but the fatal mista...

AWM2 is Yamaha's S+S synth engine. The RM1x had one and the RS7000 had a bigger version plus sampling, SCSI, Smart Card storage, better in's and outs and better expandability. I love my RM1x but would love an RS7000. The SU range (SU-10, SU200 and SU700) were primarily sample boxes with looping and ...

Probably the best, and most influential, rack samplers of all time, culminating in the S5000/S6000 models which many regard as the finest hardware samplers ever and are still well used and highly sought after in the profession. Akai's last rack mounted samplers, the Z Series, whilst technically robu...

Akai S6000. No contest

If 24bit is important to you, then Akai Z8.

Alesis Fusion is also very good, plus gives you so much more.

But for sheer power, flexibility and ease of use, the S6000 can't be beat.

In answer to your questions, IIRC, the C64 samples were donated to us many years ago and therefore could've been gleaned from an original C64 or other SID based clone. My C64 & C128 had long gone when we got these samples & Steve never had one either ! ;) We still have these samples archived. Tyler,...
