One of the first (if not the first) large sampler using a modern computer connectivity (usb. ..), more polyphony, as necessary, converttisseurs both neutral and efficient, a large number of effects with a mega edition, an internal format wave, a perfect editing utility, only flat, low memory at the base, soon forced to boost the purchase.


The basic configuration is simple but very fundamental sense, the publication is both rich and instinctive for both the sampling, the dump for programs or effects. For anyone who knows a minimum the samplers, the manual is almost useless ...


It's Akai, so converting is pretty cool, but for me, aesthetics second to none. The sound of unparalleled cleanliness, and that tape ...
Filters (in bulk) and the effects are very effective and diversified range sounds.
Dynamics, the LFO, the resampling, time streech etc are immaculate.


I use this machine since its release, I know by heart and I still can not find any fault. The loudness and the infinite number of possible make a machine like no other. Of course, those who love the sounds hot or opt for Ensoniq emu, but those who prefer to remain in control of their textures will be interested. Of all makes and models I've tried, the Z8 is by far my favorite.
Appropriately priced for an exceptional machine which has a prominent place in any studio.
