Had a glimpse of this new Roland sampler at SuperBooth today - no sound demos yet, no external midi or trig conditions/locks. Some preview specs below:
samples can be pitch controlled, playback start-and-end points can be edited, samples can be truncated allowing the deletion of audio bits that are not desired, samples can be divided and the split parts assigned to separate pads, and samples can be looped and loop start-and-end points can be edited. It also features MIDI in and out, but no thru.
For recording audio, the MS-1 uses left/right RCA jack audio inputs and two microphone jacks.
sample in either mono or stereo and sampling quality can be reduced to allow more sampling time and the lower the setting, the grittier the digitized sounds become..
The MS-1 features a simple, single track sequencer which triggers only the internal sounds.
The machine is also portable and powered either by AC adapter or batteries.
