thanks if you've already replied to my previous post re sound modules and retro sounds, this post is really an extension to that one, sorry!
is there anyone out there who uses a sampler as apposed to a drum module per se? have been thinking that a sampler would give me most flexibility, so i can find whatever drum samples i want, be it oldskool lo-fi drum machines, sampled acoustic kits, crazy sound fx, synths or whatever. so if anyone has any particular advice with regard to this or any sampler recommendations i'd be very grateful. have been thinking about getting a mid range roland module (td8 or td10) but then what am i really buying with that? undoubtedly a great drum module which allows to tweak away, changing the dimensions and tuning of the drums but i don't know if i really need or want that level of control.
i'm thinking fairly portable to minimise fannying around at gigs and yes i'd much rather have a piece of hardware i can bash around with rather than worrying about a laptop given me a headache 5mins into a gig! was thinking in particular mpc 500, small, usb connection and certainly cheaper than a mid range roland module.
anywho thanks again.
