For the price(especially what they sell for used)the features are fine. So I base the high rating on the features to value scale. It has the capabilty to create complete tracks all on it's own,but sequencing these songs with good results takes time to master.This is of course if you plan to use the internal sequencer.Most will opt not to. For trasfering samples to your computer via smart media this is a very good sampler to get because of it's nice full sound. Midi is pretty bad though.

Price paid



Very easy to use.Very intuitive user interface,and the manual was a breeze. The sequencer is easy to use,but very basic.If you resample sequences you can retrigger them as the song mode is recording,and you can make songs that way.

I don't gig,but it's very reliable,and pretty robust for such a small machine.


It's a sampler,but one with character. Nice warm punchy sound.Probably the most slept on sampler for drums. Spend some time resampling with effects,and you'll see what I mean. Highest sampling rate is 32khz,but that's fine for drums,and in most cases I don't need more.


I like it's grittyness,and ease of use so I can't part with it.
