Probably the Rolls Royce of samplers. The s770 is so packed full of features that after three years of using it I still have only scratched the surface. Not as used as Akai, which suits me fine as the filters are really distinctive and leave the competion standing.

This was Rolands flagship sampler back in 1990 and cost an unbelivable £4800. You can pick up good secondhand examples for as little as £500 - Tip: if your buying one make sure it has the RAS board installed which accepts additional memory (max 16meg) as Roland no longer have these in stock. Happy sampling. Ken.

Fantastic. One of the best sounding samplers around. Also the SP 700 is a 2u playback version which reads Akai and has 32 meg Ram. Destroys any Akai, except maybe the S6000 S5000 about to come out. And even then, I'll wait and see. The timing is great too. Bad disk handling though

Hi, I just managed to back up my own personal sampler library onto CD-ROM last night. I'd asked roland a while back if I could do this and they didn't know how to do it. Anyway, I bought a cd-R system for my Mac, along with Adaptec's Toast. This is a great piece of software which allowed me to connect my Roland hard disk to my mac, and scsi copy it to cd-rom! Just thought this may come in handy. Bruce.
