    Has anybody tried one of these things?

    I'm non-DAW (I use a DA7/Mx2424 set up),
    and could occasionally use something like this...

    I have a sampling K2000, which could probably work,
    but it isn't really something I grab when I need
    to quickly manipulate a sample...

    TIA,

    Hi,
    I have both the k2000 and the Repeater. For fast stuff, it's repeater hands down.
    I would not call it 'high end' audio because there are many variables. That said, the k2000 has a really lousy noise floor so the repeater kind of beats that too. I prefer the Triton or Pro Tools
    or even Peak but the Repeater is it's own cool little animal.

    Thanks for the response, Chap...

    I found one at a good price the other day
    and picked it up...

    The first thing I used it on was to tighten up
    some shaker/tambourine tracks...

    I just grabbed a sections that were 'groovy'
    and looped those sections, etc., etc...

    And then flew them back in to the appropriate spots...

    The song was based on drum loop 'template' originally,
    so the rhythm parts dropped right in place easily...

    Looking forward to working with it more soon...

    Hey, how big of a Compact Flash Card
    do you recommend that I get?

    Thanks,
