Anyone who has anything bad to say about this machine, don't really know how to use it. I've read quite a bit the different reviews that people have left on various sites and the negative comments that I've read are simply not true!!

This machine is an awesome piece, and is the central nervous system to my studio. I use Recyle, Reason, and the VP-9000 together, but the VP-9000 is what I turn to the most when I really need background vocals to be synced, and if I need to transpose keys in various songs. NOTHING ELSE COMPARES. Many manufacturers are mimicing the VP, but none can duplicate the power of the VP.

Eventually, you'll wind up with a VP, and when you really sit down and learn it, you will love it!!

MMMMM,I really like the vp.It's got a lush sound quality,forget akai.I have been using it for 2 weeks now and have had no crashing,the manual is ok,but only now am I getting fully to grips with her. I have found that going for mad time shifting produces the best result,assign the time control to the mod wheel.I have been beat matching goth music to house and have produced a sound that is unimitable.The sounds break up into the sweetest digitale distortion ever made possible by any machine to date.Check DAFT PUNKS 2nd album,they used the vp allover it,hench the crisp cut ups.The digital distortion is on that mellow track in the middle.Afexs window licker I think was made on this too,not sure but i think so. So yeah no crashing yet ,I'm very pleased with it,it doesnt quite do what i thought but as my good friend Danny Donovan would say if she wo'nt be nice to you USE HER.

Roland still with the same game... "I'll give you something but not everything" In 15 years in the business I haven't seem the first all the way sampler. Maybe the Kursweil K2500, but I like better EMU textures, but I do not know why EMU has 2.000 different kinds of samplers on the market, may be if I buy all of them I may have all the features I want. Any way, Roland is far away from the sampler business, the s770 and that was it!

I've posted on this before. I agree with the OVERPRICED comments. For some stupid reason, I bought one anyway!

Ok, so I've been alone with my $3000 contraption for way too long, festering over the price tag. I've also been waiting for the V-Producer software to see if that will help me get excited about using my VP-9000. Unfortunately, due to the high price of the VP, Roland decided to ask for another $1000 for the V-Producer software. Thanks, but no thanks.

BUT!!! I started using the 9000 recently just for kicks and guess what - It sounds pretty awesome! I'm still not recommending you buy one until the price drops to about $900 though. But Ihooked it up to my keyboard and dropped in some vocal samples encoded to SOLO and I had a blast. You can twist the melody of anything, not just vocals, You can make complex harmonies out of single lines, hell you can sing all your vocals without any melody and add the melody with your keyboard. Not too bad... I've got to do something with this box... me if you want more gory details...

Their adverts say "We may not be the most inexpensive but we are worth it".

Well, the VP9000 has about $600 retail worth of parts inside (not including the beautiful orange plastic knobs swiped off their other gear) , and the other $2400 is pure Roland hype).

This thing's outputs kept cutting out on us, it made loud screeching noises for no other reason than poor coding and off the shelf parts.

You would think that with huge sum of money they are charging for this you could get some true quality stuff .

At least dont be so tacky as to steal the knobs from your budget gear and place them on your overpriced gear...DAMNIT!
