Hey, <BR> <BR>I'm working on this remix that's more dub "influenced" than actual dub. I tried usingAcid Music 3.0 but...it just isn't coming out right. Anyway, I saw a demo of the Sp-303 sampler and it sounded like what I needed. But I don't know if it's all that it says it is or what. <BR> <BR>I'd like some help on this...
It's a phrase sampler with some effects, some built in sequencer and trigger pads... bassicly designed for DJs. That's about it. <BR>What you can use it and how for producing remixes of any kind... just as what it is. Load it with samples/phrases/loops or sounds and trigger them or sequence, apply some effects what ever it has (not much, but bmp friendly I guess....). <BR> <BR>/respects, <BR>/Mike Zee aka Dr ZEE
Well, <BR> <BR>I'm not trying to do anyting special; I just need a sampler,So I can hit the button to play the desired sample, add some echo and It's all good. This sounds like what I'm looking for <BR> <BR>thanks
JEiv- I presume you have a half-way decent computer if you are using Acid 3.0. I would suggest using the money you'd spend on a Sp303 on some software (e.g a different sequencer or a soft-sampler) of which there is quite a lot and that has all the capabilities of the sp303 and a lot more besides. <BR>The sp303 does give you trigger pads and some knobs to twiddle, but you can real time control most software with the mouse or a hardware controller. <BR>The sp303 does, though, have a very good delay and the several other effects are good, with the exception of the reverb which is rather poor. On the bad side it takes a long time to edit and save/load samples and you can only use one effect at a time. <BR>But if you want to play live with it, or don't want to go the computer route, good results can be had from it (I don't know of a direct hardware alternative in the price range). All round I'd give it about 7/10. In my opinion. <BR>I used to own one.
