    What sounds better:"The same sample of,lets say ,
    bass guitar played from EmuE4Platinum or played from Halion or GigaStudio on computer with Motu2408?
    I know that there is differences between Emus and Akais samplers in alogorithm,but I wonder are the software samplers enough good in producing sound as they are hardware samplers.
    Thanks in advance.

    DZ,

    I think the most important factor is the quality of the original samples. Soft samplers these days are excellent, and also more convenient and less expensive than hardware. One additional advantage over hardware is their output quality depends on your sound card. When you upgrade your sound card you also upgrade your sampler!
