  1. i remember how much ppl would complain about the lame-ass filter in the S950 and S1000!!. how it was only 12db and had no bite. Its what made EMU so much more desirable as a sampler, because it has 24db filters and a nice res. I had an S1000 and i can confirm the filter was almost unusable for any kind of traditional “filter” effect it was more like “hey someone just threw a sheet over the monitors” kinda result haha

    But then again i suppose if you want the same sound as the S950 they used for jungle then its a valid product i guess.
