    While I have no desire to return to floppy disks, I do miss the character of three of my old samplers. The Mirage, S950 and my favourite, the Ensoniq ASR10. I still have some DAT tapes of songs made around the mid 90's entirely on the ASR and it had so much punch with eight outs going through a Mackie desk.

    I wouldn't touch an MPC/akai sampler unless it had Roger Linn's name on it. Apperently techdevil demonstrates great things can be done with it however, might just be his skills though.

    [QUOTE = "KungPaoFist, post: 352178, membro: 35229"] Non vorrei toccare un campionatore MPC / akai a meno che non avesse il nome di Roger Linn su di esso. Con tutta la tecnologia dimostrata si possono fare grandi cose, tuttavia potrebbero essere solo le sue capacità. [/ QUOTE]

    I had a Emu Emax 1, incredible sound, like a sp 1200, but a bit smoother. Its a keyboard sampler, but there must be a rack version too!
    Not that expensive

    the 950 is the one which need no comp and eq to be present as fck in a mix....
    950 and 11oo are drum's and bass sample gods......
    a 8 bit mirage is even more sick on low notes...no synth can get you that grit...
    s6000 should have sort of clean hightech sound , many like it over the usual

    e.g.
    www need s1100 manual for latest OS
    www need s3200 manual
    www need all the service manuals
    also all the akai OS's are needed online....eprom builders hide it under their beds...

    how to emu floppys start point

    floppy images for akai

    1000 slips of s900 images

    ------------------
    no need to buy expensive 50's packs of 720kb floppy disks...watch this how to format...note : usb floppy drives wont do the trick

    -------------------------------------------------
    the big plus for sd card is you can create much bigger partitions...with usb you have to switch through disks while with sd you can have bigger projects without switching disks

    I totally agree with what has been said here, the upfront / in your face presence , the tonal character is amazing, best i heard. I just winder if any1 can compare from personal experience the sound of the s950 to a EPS 16 +?
    Its like comparing Preemo with Truemaster, both masters of their craft.
