just got a dj70 and 2 of the keys were broken.i called up roland and they sent me 2 new keys($6.80 total free ship!)i opened the unit up and installed the new keys-i added 2 mb more while it was opened. i think the scratch pad is a tad hokey,but i make blippy bleepy spacey ambient music,so for me the "realness"of the scratch does not matter. the problem i am having is remembering partials are assembled into patches,patches into performances into volumes..... can't i just assign a damn sample to a pad without making a partial ?!?!?!?!?! the manual is ok,but it skips info here and there... there is not alot on the internet for this machine. anyway,i like the fact that is actualy quite small!!and the 8 "pads" you can assign a partial to.i also like that s550,s330,disks can be loaded into it.....not a bad deal for 200$ or less.no scsi though!!!!

Unfortunately the scratch pad on the DJ-70 was as shitty as dogs ass, I mean roland was totally selfish to build a great idea into a sampler and then give you that unstable unaccurate piece of you know what (intentionally) don't try to scratch anything because it will not simulate a real turntable surface with scratch accuracy it oftens drifts away from the sample point making it totally useless so you only really get a high priced sampler but the 32mb version at least give you more memory, I sold my unit because it was useless, that's why roland dropped the price on them because they felt guilty for ripping people off with the initial $3000 price of the first unit for only 4 megabytes of sample time and a shitty unaccurate scratch pad.

Assign a vocal sample to the scratch pad, add some filters and pitchbend, then go wild.

www.lilchips.com has the S550 sound libraries available for download. make sure you get the SDisk utility program and buy yourself some 720kb floppies. do a search on yahoo for S760 sounds/samples. there's about 11 or so on the net and these libraries use 1.44mb floppies. the rest of the 700 series sample libraries are on CD-Rom. so it's no help to you unless you have the patience to write them to floppies with the SDisk program.

This was my first sampler. When I first got it I was really annoyed with it! I couldnt figure it out! But when I did...I feel in LOVE with this machine! I have the original DJ-70 so I cant tell you about the MKII(only that Teddy Riley loves is so much he has a few of them). I only wish the first one had more sample time and more outputs. I love the big screen and the waveform editing. Much better than editing with a bunch of numbers. You can edit with numbers too! The scratch wheel is WACK! I would recommend this sampler to anybody if you wanna learn the basics of sampling this is the one!
