Still my favorite sampler of all time. It was kind of limited, but you could get a good sample really fast.

I know it was pretty easy to use despite the short comings. I had a beat up one that worked great and it came with the disk loader and tray. The guy even threw in a sound libary that had one sound that was useable but I appreciated the extra quick disks. The sound that I liked that came with it ended up on a song back then.

Yeah no fuss no muss with that one and those sliders helped speed things up. I think I remember you sampled a lead pipe or something with yoyrs when you lived at 808 in Rockville? I remember hearing one of your tracks there and you saying it was from the sampler.

Look what I found! Its hard to see, but if you zoom in on the rack, that sure looks like a S612 to me.
