I wish I could give two ratings:

- With Yamaha OS: 0 / 5. Prepare for hell. - With Typhoon OS: 4 / 5. The sample size hardware limitation is a problem, and the filters aren't too great. But what do you expect for such an old machine? The matrix mod is fantastic. It beats my A3000! Allows for great experimentation.

Sound is pretty good, nice and clear, a little low perhaps on the high end shimmer, and not the hottest outputs but that can be improved.

Since Typhoon is free, I believe this is now the best budget sampler on the market (at this time at least). You could either pay $250 for a crappy DJ phrase sampler, or pay $250 for a pretty kick-ass used sampler. Some Akai models are getting down toward this price range, but this has the best band for the buck IMHO.

Definitely thanks to Nuedge for giving the Typhoon to everyone who needs it. It definitely made a huge difference in using it.

Maybe you already know this but Nuedge have released Typhoon 2000 for the TX16W sampler. And it`s freeware. Check it out at: http://www.nuedge-development.com/typhoon2000/Typhoon2000.htm

At last!!! I can't beleive Typhoon 2000 is freeware now. My sampler was really dusty and wireless. Well, with this new O/S the TX-16W is just a fresh new machine. Thanx to Nuedge-Development for such a gift. Despite of it's 12bit technology this sampler beeing now easier to use is a very powerful and creative musical instrument.

The TX-16W feels and looks like a very powerful sampler. But once in the battlefield it turns into a sh..t to operate. I don't have Typhoon (if anyone wants to share a copy...) so I use O.S. 1.0 and 2.0. Drawbacks: - Separate outputs are useless being only monophonic and impossible to use as sounds must be arranged in a special group to access them. - Filters sounds very, very digital. - No graphical editing. - Buffers Nightmare. Save your samples all the time. - Don't like the sound itself. - 50Khz sampling frequency is there just to waste memory.

I still have one but will die soon unless I grab Typhoon...
