Early Sampling

Hey Mark

I was always wondering what sampler you were mainly using back 90**** & how you were sampling i.e. Bolt's Beats etc

My first Sampler was a Casio FZ1 So it would have been that for Bolts beats, i later got a Akai S950. But still used both.

The FZ1 had 14 secs ish at full quality of sampling so sometimes i would double speed longer samples into the sampler which would add extra graininess. Or i would sample it, play it a octave up to dat and then resample and then tune down. Great sampler that, really good filters on it, not that user friendly though, but once you got your head around it, it was fine. I had the Keyboard version. Floppy disks! Always had to do 2 back ups.

Aphex twin also used one, And LFO.
