I picked one up for $300 used at Music to the Max in Huntington Beach, California. It's great! As far as thinking that without using expandable memory cards you'll only get &quot;basic operations&quot; out of it, I disagree. I personally remixed &quot;Block Rockin Beats&quot; by the Chemical Brothers (for fun and practice) and people are telling me that my version is better than the original! And it should be noted that I created the remix ENTIRELY of samples from the original song that I reworked to my liking and then through in some outside samples for fun. My finished version was recorded in ONE take, beginning to end. I spent a lot of time beforehand figuring the arrangement, then I recorded it when I was well practiced. A great tool for a home musician like myself.

I just got a memory card from pygmy.com. $189 for 10meg Sandisk. And I just MIDI'd my DR-660 and can trigger the indivudual pads on the MS-1 with the individual pads on the drum machine. And I can program the pads on the MS-1 to respond to different pads on the drum machine. So now I can use the dr-660 to program drum patterns and have it fire off sample from the MS-1. Too cool for a cheap little sampler. The sequencer is very very basic - it works - but this midi set-up works great. Timing may become an issue as I get into it more. And I just saw an MS-1 used for $200!! tempting....

I Have a MS-1 Digital Sampler and Like to order a external memory card with 2.5 or 20m bytes card and don't have an idea where I could order one from. I would appreciate if you have such information if you could pass it on to me. Its been good working with the MS-1 so far and would like to take it to the next level. Thanks and I look forward taking to you.

I just got my MS-1 from a major music retailer in Tampa (Thoroughbred Music) for $200 bucks. It even had a 5mb card in it and my buddy who sold it to me threw it in for free. Yehaa! This sampler beats the sp-202 hands down. The amount of sampling time with the card is plenty for me. Sequencing is easy. I love this little box!

The MS1 is a pretty cool little sampler whether you're a first-timer or a pro. The memory cards are pricey and hard to find, but aside from that it's well worth it. Alot of the phrase samplers have two basic release settings (gate and trigger) but the MS1 adds one extra called "drum". This makes it more smooth sounding if you're sampling drum hits and what-not. Compared to other phrase samplers, the MS1 seems to have the most parameters when it comes to sample editing. Granted there aren't any filters and the pitch control is universal but you can set precise loop points. The polyphony can become a problem if sampling at a high rate (1 Stereo loop or two mono samples). As far as my set-up, I use the MS1 as a drum module. I've got it loaded up with various kicks and snares and other dittys like that to be triggered via MIDI.
