    Sweet memories.. I was swapping floppydisks all night. The S1000 had 8 megs I believe, but was totally out of my price range back then.. Nice track btw @techdevil..

    Theres something sweet about outboard samplers, I run a yamaha a4000 with an akai s5000 and a akai s01 modded with gotek. Although i admit they are not as quick to use as a software synth i still love to make breaks, and even basic synth bass's using the yamaha osc, filters and fx and then i record them in and edit them further in my DAW using kontakt. Best of both worlds. :wink:

    I used to have S950 back in the day and it's a lovely sounding sampler with really interesting sounding time stretching and converters, but its filter is not so nice. If they put a resonant filter in it, it would be really good! :wink: Nowadays I'm using fully expanded S3200 and its filter sounds quite good. The filter on the additional board especially. It's also easier to edit. I love it for drums and vocals, even basslines. Still very useful machine. S950, too, without a doubt! I made whole songs with it and Korg Wavestation! :wink:

    For me its not just about the sounds, it also encourages me to use a different technique when creating a song. I make decisions that are more final and it all comes together in a different way then if im using plugins. Only problem is i find i need to dedicate a day/more time to this type of production.

    The worrisome part is that there's still nothing like E-MU Z-plane filters anywhere in VST to be found. Except the a bit buggy and rather old Emulator X3 that I still use btw. They're all busy emulating Juno-106.... :lol:

    p.s. Which I owned and found more sterile sounding than my Juno-60 anyway. Really boring synths, both of them. Very constricted. One and a half trick ponies. I don't get the hype around it at all.

    These days I find myself sampling the Juno into A5000 and mangling the hell out of it. That's more like it. Then it goes into the pedals. Want to be creative? Sound different?:rofl:
