Advise on cheap way to play computer samples live

Post by mr Mountainman » Mon Jul 30, 2012 10:28 am

Hi!

I'm trying to get my Bassplayer to play some sampled bass on some songs. Of course he don't wont to spend to much money on this experiment.
So I want your advise on a cheap way to play my computer samples live. I've have a lot of samples in Sylenth I want to use. The thing is; I don't want to bring a computer onstage.

So, what would be the cheapest way to play these samples live without computer? I have a M-audio midi-controller if that helps;)

Thanks in advance!

Boss SP-202 or SP-303?

they're cheap I think. I used to use them in my live band. We would use them for sampled drums and ambient loops.

Zoom ST224 is another cheap option, you can get them for about $100. It was my first sampler.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

All good recommendations so far. Perhaps a Yamaha SU-10, or one of my underrated faves, the original Korg ES-1.
