Unfortunately they aren't worth much... I think about $200 last I checked, but it really is a nice pro sampler. It might lack some of the modern conveniences but it's still a super sampler at a great price.

Search Ebay's completed auctions and settle on a fair price.

Ha! Don't knock 'em till you've played 'em. They are hands down one of the finest playing guitars ever built. And they can stay in tune through an earthquake when properly set up.

Stave you still have your Spirit?

Yeah, what he said. I like the command stations. They've got better synth engines than the RM1X, so they're a lot more usable as a single piece. Now that's a good piece to get started on.

Well, my point is is that there's no best way for everyone. Everyone's situation is different. For a kid who makes trance in his bedroom why would he want to spend all the money and waste all the space with a large amount of hardware when a few choice programs on a decently speedy box will do? On th...

I would like to dispel the hugest myth in electronic music and home studio gear. There is no such thing as "better" Only better for a certain individual. I'd invite the person who wrote that Medaille article to try playing with a metal band using nothing but his computer :) To be honest, i...

That doesn't sound like Jackson at all... Did they have to special order it for you or something?

Have them exchange it for a new one. I'm sure they will.

Seriously, I would avoid the Roland. Also, you might want to consider not buying a ton of gear all at the same time. It becomes overwhelming quickly. Work with your new Korg until you know the sequencer front to back, and you can program sounds on it from scratch. Then get a new piece to fill in the...

Sounds good. But really, you don't have MIDI latency issues with all that going on?.. I remember using all 16 channels on my old RM1x to drive a JV-1080 and Nordlead and I had some seriously sloppy timing, and I wasn't even using CC's... one (serial) MIDI cable has its limitations especially when y...

Using rack modules that are intended for studio use in a live context (when you're the only musician performing) is not an efficient nor a safe way to operate. This is why I'm such a huge RM1X fan. The new material I'm working on will have me running an Akai S6000 sampler, a Nord Lead, an Access Vi...

I should preface my remarks by saying that I am not a fan of Korg equipment in general. I like their workstations, but I don't like the rest of it. OK, on to the sampler. I just really quite simply don't like phrase samplers. I understand the ESX contains two parts that can be played across a keyboa...

No, the electibe A is a decent buy, especially for the money. It's not a total waste. I would, however, steer clear of the Korg samplers. Scott - I know quality instruments cost money, nobody knows this better than me :) But the Emu ESI samplers or even an old Ultra are as good or better samplers - ...

ASR-10s are still pretty expensive these days. They go about $850 on Ebay. And they max out at 16MB of memory. An RM1X at @225, and an Oxygen8 at $140 new, and an ESI-4000 at under $300 would save almost $200.

And you're talking $1500 or more for a Triton or Motif.
