Re: Needing a sampler

Really just depends on what you want to do. IMHO the ESX is a perfect machine for sound manipulation, recordable automation and song construction. I mean its as easy as pie, and tons of fun too boot! Not to mention the internal keyboard capabilities and the slice and dice possibilities, loops, one s...

Re: Needing a sampler

Im still really not sure what you want. But I will say that if you want to make complete compositions with lots of automation and tons of recordable tweakability the ESX is the way too go. I dont know much about the 808 other than what Balma and others have said about it, but having said that its ap...

Re: Needing a sampler

Looping as in single cycle wave loops? or looping as in looping a 4 bar sample?
...........The 808 does sound good for lengthy samples and such, but as a self contained unit, the lack of a compotent sequencer kinda takes it down a notch :?

Re: What synths used Madonna on her first,second &third albums?

Ive always loved the cool early 80's R&B' style production on the First couple of Madonna records. I believe reggie lucas and leon sylvers from MTUME and Stephanie mills fame handled some of the production on those ones....as well as patrick leonard.

Re: Wich sampler will you buy without hesitate

The ES-mk2 is a handsome, sturdy looking machine. I also found out just recently that it samples at 44.1khz..as opposed to 32khz on the original ES-1.
