Most affordable hardware synth that can upload samples to

Postby easter12 » Fri Apr 28, 2017 1:37 pm

I'm a beginner when it comes to synths.
I'm looking for a hardware synth that I can upload samples to?
Any suggestions?
Thanks a lot!

Roland Fantom X6. Good synth engine (ROMpler style). I have an X7 and X8 hooked up to a WinXP PC for sample transfer. And it accepts wavs.

Novation Circuit. I just picked up a used one for $200.

All three answers above are somewhat correct but easter12 didn't state clearly whether he/she meant new or used and what kind of samples...one shots like individual drums, loops, multisampled instruments like pianos.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

:agree: The Akai S2000 is cheaper than all these, and you can load samples on it. It does not have a separate Synth engine, or performance controls, as it's just a rack sampler though!
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

It's a great sampler if you don't mind going down the floppy or SCSI road. It doesn't load wavs either although its PC software (what was it called again?) can convert them, IIRC.
