your favorite sampler here ...
Nemesys GigaStudio, nothing can touch it, no memory limits on the size of the sample !
For sheer power, Tascam's GigaStudio on a seperate machine.
For convenience, Steinberg's HALion as a VSTi in your favorite sequencer.
For Logic users, the EXS24 sampler.
For hardware, I'm really liking my Motif 8. I make all my samples on the 'puter and then drag them onto the SmartMedia card and whack that into the Motif.
I guess I'm a little "old school" when it comes to samplers, I use samplecell which is fast simple an efficient but right now I absolutely love the Yamaha A5000, the sound is fantastic and the amp envelope is the fastest I've ever heard in a soft or hardware sampler, I do a lot of drum programming and the other samplers I was using sounded kind of "spongy", not the Yamaha's, I first got a 4000 the added a 5000 and I just love them...
I filled my Triton pro with 64 megs.It's handy to have in one box on stage 200 000 events SEQ and Sampler.I solve many problems on the move without wasting time and efforts with other stuff.It may content nearly 4000 samples if you dare to edit them
Kurzweil K2600 or K2000 for me.
second up would be the MPC3000 for drums
Like the EXS from logic though.
Hey guys, you might call me a newbie at sampling as I've only been at it for a couple of years. I first learned sampling on a Yamaha EX5 synth and now I use Kontakt. The difference is crazy. Maybe the EX5 is a bad example of hardware capable of sampling but it seems that software like Kontakt is sooo much more versitile. I like the idea of working within one environment that my computer offers as well.
I don't know how Kontakt works.Did you met some problems with latency or with playng the sounds properly.With hardware units there is not problem but memory space is so limited.May be I have to check Kontakt?
funny I use three hardware samplers and I've never ran out of memory, even when layering like crazy I've used 100 megs tops...
I own an EX5R but I've never used it for sampling, I hear you can process your samples through the FDSP section and get some really nice sounds, ever tried that ?
Completely off topic, but I couldn't resist, Mario is one of mexico's best guitar session players, and I have no idea what the hell he's doing with keyboards!!!!
he he, I actually payed him a lot of money to post this...
what can I say, thank you I'm flattered
now about the keyboards...
when we met I was recording a lot but it was very stressful, you know "ok the client is here and we're way behind schedule, you have one take to nail it " I was always into music production but I was doing sessions to pay the bills, I still do sessions every now and then but my chops are not up the level they used to be, now I really enjoy producing and arranging and thats how I got into synths...
