Haven’t been here for a while. I sold off most of my gear to sort of “restart” with what I’ve learned about my likes and dislikes. I got a Subsequent 37 and Moog semi-modular gear and I absolutely love them, I lose myself in them for hours. Now I’m looking for something to take me away from the computer again.
I’m not rich and I won’t be able to afford anything for a while after I get a new groove box. I need to be able to sample all my gear, not necessarily at the same time, plus lay down drums and a couple synth layer tracks for poly synth samples. CV is nice, song mode is excellent.
Digitakt, Octatrack, MPC One or Live, Synthstrom Deluge, down the road I’d love an ER-301 but not sure it’s for me right now.
I’m willing to mostly manage samples with the computer if necessary, that’s no issue.
With that said I’m moving away from overly synth-y sounds. I love samples and acoustic instruments, plus bread and butter synth sounds and experimental modular. I just have option paralysis. There are too many choices, limited funds, plus all groove boxes have quirks that I like and dislike.
TL;DR, need groovebox sampler
