At the minute pretty much the only hardware I own is the Roland SP505 sampler (poor mans MPC). Yeah, its cool and it has some good features but it takes soooo long to do anything. When you first turn it own and hit the sampling button it seems to take nearly a complete of minutes to ready itself to record. Those two minutes are the most inspiration stealing minutes ever. Basically, if i wanted to record a sample, cut it up and add effects, depending on how large the file is could take take anything from 15 minutes to an hour! The same thing I can do in ableton in just minutes!
So why do I keep wanting to buy more samplers? I think its just the mystique of creating and performing music without a computer. I dont wanna start the whole software vs hardware thing again but why cant I just leave it alone?
