Yamaha A3000 Professional Sampler

   (0 reviews)

The A3000 professional sampler is an ideal break-beat machine and phrase sampler for a wide variety of recording and performance applications.

Excellent Effects System

The A3000’s triple-block effect system lets you set upas many as three independent effects. Select from a wide range of built-in effects — including original effects custom-designed to heighten the performance qualities of phrase and break-beat play. You can also apply
effects to incoming signals as you record them, and to analog input that you feed through the A3000 for realtime output.

Easy to Use

The A3000 presents its editing and control capabilities in an easy-to-use three-level arrangement. All operations are handled using front-panel mode buttons, function keys, and knobs. You can access and edit any setting by selecting the mode, then selecting the function,
and then turning the knobs directly under the screen. It is also possible to use knobs and function keys to control realtime playback.

Performance-Enhancing Options

Installation of the optional I/O expansion board (AIEB1 board) adds digital I/O capability plus six additional assignable-output pairs to your A3000. The A3000 also accepts up to 128MB of expansion memory.
