  1. Seems to be a sample-based complement to the microSynth. I wonder if it will send its pattern data out on midi? Could act as an interesting midi controller if it did…

  2. i don't think there are full ADSR envelopes for the VCA, and there doesn't seem to be a dedicated filter per voice. only one available as a global effect. N.G

    1. Yes this is true, there is only an DR (decay, release) envelope. I hope for a firmware update, to solve this. There are no ''filters'' in sense of dedicated stage in signal path, but only as an effect. There are two ways to bypass this, by sampling or feeding a prepared sample, or by resampling (first effect filter). The reverbs are beautiful. I think this is a powerful and inspirational machine for creating fast rhythmic patterns (with the assistance of the leds).

      No noise from the outputs. The dedicated knob for the selection, of different sample approach, saves a lot of programming time. In tandem with the editor…., which is a must after all, works beautifully and even faster.

      Microsampler is a fast lite edition sampler (no multisampling capabilities, no filter, no adsr), with some very interesting features, like the dedicated keyboard and sample mode and the sequencer. In the keyboard mode the sample is spread on all keys, automatically.

      The fun thing is that you can select any of the 36 samples, instantly from the dedicated knob, and play with that sound.. even more you can play over a previous created rhythmic sequence, and recorded as an overdub.

      I must say a well designed inspirational little sampler!!!
