I can't say much for other uses, since I know little of them... but for techno this is the greatest instrument ever made. It reads .wav and .aiff files, so I can warp and cut sounds on my PC and throw them in there. The effects (particularly the distortion and delay types) utterly ruin sounds beautifully. The sound quality is unbelievable. The LFO's can be midi synced and will do dastardly deeds to basslines and pads. The filters can go from soft and rumbling to dizzy and ear-chewing. I love this sampler. After owning an ASR-10, an MPC2000xl, 909, an 808, I have come to rest on a drumstation and an a4000 to produce almost any sounds that I want. As I said before, I write minimal and experimental techno, so I can only recommend from that point of view... but if thats your bag too, then grab one of these, they rock. This sampler is an absolute winner. I suggest that you also get an IDE or SCSI harddrive to go with it. Saving and loading samples gets lightning fast with one of these installed.

I've had this sampler a few days and it really is great. The FX are really good and their are so many EXTRA features that it really makes it one hell of a sound creation tool. Get one !!!! You won't regret it.

One bad point is, slow disk operation but if you can put up with that, you really won't regret buying one.

The best sampler for your money. Effects = Some Great. Some Awesome. None bad. Ease of use = I was knee deep in a remix project a half hour after I got it.

Loop divide/Remix function: It's like having Recycle inside the sampler. And the Rexix function is completely intense!

Disks/Memory: You'll need to upgrade the memory for the sampler to be of any use. It only comes with 4 megs on-board. You'll need 4 32mb simms to max it out at 128mb. It's picky on what memory you use so don't buy memory without verifying that it is compatible. You can put a SCSI or IDE hard drive in it. It can handle up to 8gigs. It will format it into 8 1 gig partitions. Stay away from 7200rpm drives if you are using IDE. It caused problems with mine. There is so much to describe about this machine but I do not have the time. Definately get to a dealer and check it out.
