I Like this machine, sounds real good, but can be a pain in the 'r-se' to learn. If you can simply plug this thing up and see some progress, you are truly gifted. The knobs are glitchy (like most clickable rotary knobs).. spin them a 'little' too fast and it shows unexpected results. It's slow to start up, kinda slow to load samples (depends on the size) and speaking of size, this module is HUGE. The back end sticks out the rack! But the good tings are this sampler can do what you need it to do (when you figure it out). I had finally got my samples assigned to the right keys, and it sounded GREAT, but I thought I saved it (because I could hear the hard drive working, and visually saw the name of the samples being saved), but after I tried to re-load it a day later, I didn't find anything. I haven't figured out how to apply effects to my samples, but I hear their really good..how good is that to me though!! Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but some of em work when I scroll though them, 98% don't do anything. I do have to admitt, I have barely picked up the manual, so that can contribute to the reason why I'm not getting the most out of it. I do like machines that give me instant gratification (MPC, SP-303) but don't expect instant anything with the A-4000. It will take a little time to get used to. Even though my review looks 95% bad, I do like the machine. I can't blame my lack of knowledge on the 4000. It's really a good machine.. it just takes time to get some good lovin' outta it.

It's very hard for me (new sampler user...) understand the architecture. And it's slow to load samples. It's normal?

I moved from emu samplers to this because of the lack of creative effects on the emu's. After a little use i can say that so far i have found the sonic possibilities vast, and fun. And i have found the operating system a real pain in the ass!

Who designed this thing and what were they thinking. It will take me a long time to get to grips with how it works, it took me about ten mins to work out my emu e6400.

But thats the price to pay for something that sounds as good and as wierd as this sampler.
