142 - Better sampling        

From: Scot Gray
Email: Halucifuge@aol.com
Date: 16-Dec-99


I have an Akai s-2000. One of the few things I dont like about it, is the poor display. When sampling it is difficult to get an accurate reading on the input signal, mainly how close to 0db you are before distortion. What I do now is use my dat player as an analogue to digital converter. If you have a digital input on your sampler, you can connect your dat, cd rec, computer to it. Use your signal level on your dat etc. to see your input levels and then set your sampler to digital source, as long as the levels are good at the dat, they will turn out great on the sample. I havent used the analouge inputs on any of my samplers in ages. Hope this helps you to get high quality samples. Peace.
