16 bit sampling w/ fffaaattt analog filters, best of both worlds! Warmness and clarity (compared to the EII, for ex.)that can't be duplicated. Digital filters in today's samplers sound, well, digital... The EIII is best sound shaping tool if you want your samples to stay warm and fat. I dig the LFO and the rest of the analog effects section. The action is nice too. I've always admired Violator's clean tight sound, now I know how they got it. I love my EIII. And I'm not an 80's nostalgia freak either!!

Have a EIII for well over 3 years now and love it to bits. I bought it for a good price from a L.A. Studio and shipped to Belfast N.Ireland. It came with a LARGE amounts of samples:- the natual guitar and strings samples, just and still do, blow my mind. I still have a L.A. studio song still kept on it as it stuns anyone who hears it. I contact the studio were I got it from to here the history of the beast and to my surprise the artists that produced on it was out of this world. The hits that this sampler was used on made me so proud and it will be my studio until I'm lead out to pasture. It has a very large hard disk built in {must have been upgraded = 400Mb} and a Optical CD Rom. Anyone who has one hold on to it as it will soon become a Classic.

This sampler has to be the best sounding 16 bit machine out there (aside from a synclavier or fairlight serise III). It's easy to use and has a great little sequencer built in. Lots of outputs and smpte on the back, true analog filters(similar to the emulator II), and it looks great. Can be a bit unreliable due to the built in hard drive. If you're wondering what it sounds like, pick up Depeche mode violator. Most of the samples on that album are EIII. You can find one for less than 600 bucks nowadays. Thats cheap considering they used to go for more than 15 thousand bucks.

I take it that you were shivering when you recorded that sample as the EIII only has one loop point. ;-)

What other sampler comes with 16 individual audio outputs, a built-in hard disk, velocity and aftertouch keyboard and analogue VCFs? Remember, the EIII is 14 years old this year!
