the st 224 is very nice, i get mine used, but in good state.

i can't send #cc12 and cc#13 to control the effects,-also others cc's- the owner`s manual last page appendix midi says it's possible but i can`t yet....

It`s impossible play the samples in trigger mode via midi, it's always in gate mode when controlled via midi.. does somebody can help me ??

Oh, and if you're sequencing your SampleTrak from a PC computer, you might want to download this utility I made which adds velocity sensitivity to your sampler and maps the pitch and mod wheels of a keyboard to the SampleTrak effect parameters.

I had been trying to sell my SampleTrack (with three 16 Mb cards and a PC card reader) but it seemed that no one is interested. I was asking $300 which I think was fair enough. But last week I had to be in surgery due to a calculus in my left kidney. Since my SampleTrak was already pack and ready to go in case someone bought it, I asked my wife to bring it to me. I had a ton of drum hits in one card and was making some cool beats in no time. I also have an Akai S2800, an Emu ESI-2000, and a couple of soft-samplers in my PC, but I couldn't have done a thing with them. The SampleTrak is so fast and fun to work with that I'll definitely keep it for a few years more.

i'm telling you,..in a few years this little box is gonna be a much sought after classic. this is a GREAT little box. this little devil (using the clever "resample" function) can create some delicious deviations in sound. create your own drum kit of obscene noises....you can do it with this box. it sounds "fairly clear" at best....but for compiling a collection of instantly available and disturbing noises..this thing is a LITTLE KING. i love it.

This is a good hobbyist piece of kit & takes a while to get into.

I use it to work out songs - record at mono standard and you can get two 60 second samples into it, chop up the bits and pieces onto the pads, edit into loops and even slow down the track 'in pitch' to work out e.g. jazz riffs.

The loop editing is pretty crap - seems best to use the loop button to mark the start/stop points i.e. tap the beat manually. Just keep trying until it's right.

you absolutely must format the smart media on the sampletrak to copy samples back from your pc. PC formats just don't work.

Overall a fun piece of kit which they say is as good as the original fairlight which cost some 100K GBP originally - all this for a couple of hundred dollars can't be bad.

The effects alone are worth paying the money for.
