Showbiz and Primo made bad ass beats with this thing. Classic hip hop sound-some bassment type gritty ish. Definitely worth looking for at a good price. This one's for the reel hedz.

Hi

i just got mine used in excellent condition with full ram only for 170$ !!...although i am in trance it sounds great to me in order to use it for "filtered" vocal stuff...i also use it for drums...it sounds very clean compared let's say to a pc soundcard... if you can get it cheap as i did then you should go definitelly for it...and an answer to Jeff...yes mate all you have to do in order to create a drum kit is to copy the e.g. kg1 then change the sample you are using and then adjust the keyboard range you want you sample to be played...

Bought mine 4 years ago for $300. It's my main sampler. I stuck another memry board into it about 2 years. You can get heaps of sample time out of it if you use the sample rate cleverly - I never sample kiks and basses at full banwidth. Good for the money and to get that old skool 12 bit sound. Combined with my CAsio RZ1 sampler, I got crunchy slammin drums.

i bought one in 87,accompanied it w/ a new-bought roland mc500mk2,i'm happy to write techno and electronic tunes at that time.old skool 12-bit sampling though not as fat as sp1200,but i sampled tr808 kits into it,and it got the punchiness.i paid new about $1500 at that time.it worths i think for the sounds.it's crystal clear like today's akai but had more dynamics,no efx,no digital i/o,but has 8 individual outs,best for drum samples,don't forget u can trigger it bthru the optional stand alone unit me35t.limited ram but ok for drums.not for loops of course.

I use the S950 for my hiphop productions... I think it's very fast and easy to use, moreover it sounds just right for hiphop, gritty and raw! Check out my stuff at www.mp3.com/saka to hear the S950 in action. Peace!
