This is a piece of hardware i am glad to add to my studio setup. There are many reviews out there that don't explain this instrument with much detail or knowledge, i was scared to purchase this. After i did purchase it and played around with it i will never regret getting this. To me it feels like a instrument that will be a legendary one. The reason i think this is so great is it really is like a swiss army knife of samplers. starting off the knobs are actually really great and smooth they don't feel cheap like reviews say! you can load samples into this from your computer and save them on there for portable use. each sample can be edited from pitch balance volume level start time end time. then effects can be added using to which sample u would like them to be. then you can sequence these all into different length patterns. you can adjust the track bpm easily and everything is smooth if you read the manual and figure it out. my last and final thought is i really like how its battery powered so you can bring it outside the studio to work on tracks anywhere.


Very easy to understand.


It fits my electro/hip hop style of music perfectly.


Overall, I've had the MicroSampler for about 3 months. It's pretty interesting, but I'm still trying to figure out if its the best way to sequence beats. The clock seems to drift a bit after running a pattern for extended amount of time. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. It takes a while to figure this thing out. But now that im getting the hang of it I highly recommend it, I admit I was skeptical on purchasing this at first because there are a lot of bad reviews on it. But I glad I did! Now I recommend it to anyone looking to sample and on a budget. You can sample with this just like you can on all the expensive samplers out there.
