Any true 8-bit samplers which can handle long samples?

Oberheim Prommer, Linn 9000 & Forat 9000 are all 8-bit samplers.... can't handle long samples though.

i think for longer samples youll have to just buy multiple units and learn a few tricks to make the most of your available sample time.

s**t, then I'll just forget about 8 bit... how about the dirtiest 12 bit sampler that doesn't cost crazy loot?

haha... You know I've been asking that question for a while! I got some pretty good responses in my "dirtiest sampler" thread...

A prophet 2002 is about to roll up to my door in the next day or so. I'm very excited about it-everyone's saying they're gritty and alias a lot [-o< so I'll report back.

The thing that excites me the most tho is that they actually look easy to use: no menus!!! (unlike most of the other 12-bit samplers out there) and they still maintain a typical synth like architecture and analog filters. You could find one of them for around $200 on a good day.
Do you even post on vse bro?

Maybe the Korg DSS-1 is what you´re looking for. This upgrade: http://web.me.com/tomvirostek/DSS-1/DSS1.html, gives it more RAM than any other 8 or 12 bit sampler. Also a SCSI.

..and together with this invention: http://www.reflexmusic.de/DSS-1/, a floppy drive emulator, it´ll not need floppys anymore. (But it works on other samplers too.)

..then the DDS-1 has the ability to reduce the bit resolution down to 6 bit. (But it does´nt sound like true lo-fi, but it´s an atempt to it and it´s there.)
