Portable sampler for my XL-7?

Post by Malik » Wed Feb 21, 2007 5:40 pm

hi folks

Do you know of a small, portable sampler that I could trigger live with my XL-7 Command Station? I've been doing a lot of interesting sample creation/mutation with the ASR-10 and E5000, but I'm wary of lugging them out to gigs just to act as romplers for my XL-7. There must be a small, cheap, MIDI-triggered sample device out there, right??? Any ideas?

Clueless and hungry for lunch,

Malik

it depends on how much you want out of the sampler and how much you want to pay for it.

for simple phrase sampling a boss spx0x series or zoom st series desktop units could do well fo you.

otherwise for more complex sampling options older akai rack samplers are pretty cheap.

not sure what you are looking for..are you looking for kinda linear sampling? I sense that this Akai CD-rom compatible Roland JS-30 sampler might be the one that you are looking for: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/1995_ar ... djs30.html

Thanks lads! That Roland is a pretty sexy beast, but no storage facility??? Yikes!

I'm basically looking for a device that can store samples and respond to MIDI notes from an outside controller. (and perhaps do some basic sort of mapping) I'd prefer it not be a rackmount unit, as I already have a collection of these which I would never lug to a live show!

SU-10 may be right down my alley...just hard to come by.

Off-the-topic- I tried transmulting last night on my E5000...now I know where I can go for "the sound."

:twisted:

what you might also potentially consider is an ASR-X Pro.

since you're already using the ASR-10 this might be a good option.

btw, i like your taste, both the ASR-10 and E5000 are two of the coolest samplers ever. i'm not quite sure if the ASR-X will be what you're looking for, but personally i find it and Roland's SP-808 extremely useful and they're both fairly cheap these days.

??? It got SCSI port as standard equipment..with a maximum HD space of 600Mb. You can even load AKAI CDroms..or if you don't mind some keys, the DJ-70mkII is even a much better choice. Got disk drive! yeaah..S-750 engine based, up to 32 mb and that SCSI as standard.

But if you don't need the linear sampling function, the Roland SP-404 is could be the smallest and meanest midi triggered phrase sampler out there.

Thanks, Seph! It's one I've grown to love. The E5000 is just so user-friendly while being deep, and the ASR-10 is just a classic- like Rocky. Lots of quirks, a pretty limited vocabulary, but endless possibilities and winning combos.

The ASR-X may just be the ticket I need for some good sounds. Excellent thinking.

A SP303/404/505/555/606 might be what you're after.

Do your homework, and see what unit has/does what you need it to, but the XL7 should be able to trigger it, no sweat.
