Choosing a Software Sampler...Trigger from 909

i have really only had experience with Ensoniq EPS / 16+ samplers and am looking for a Sampler / Play back software that i can trigger from my TR-909.

I like the idea of Alchemy but it may not be what i need as far as immediate triigering/playback...

Any help would be much appreciated!

I've used Logics ESX24 sampler for this in the past to do exactly this. I have also used an Akai S1100. I perferred the sound of the S1100 even though it was more limited in what it is able to do.

You might also consider Ableton as well. A drum rack could work quite nicely.

With some creative thinking and a controller in the mix one can get a lot of mileage out of a pretty minimal setup like this.

I cannot comment on Alchemy as I have not used it. I don't see why it would work though.

thanks for your reply here and re: pm!

i'll probably check out Ableton ...i dont want to be limited to drum sounds and dont want to use a rack sampler unless i find another EPS-m.

gonna keep searching the software realm for now.
