10x Point Patch Bay.

Fantastic Sampler. The patch bay is bolted and re-enforced to the base of the unit to facilitate rack use.

The sample was recorded on my Juno 60 synth.. The circuit bent sounds are fairly intense, highly digital and tonally aggressive (at least in this demo).

The possibilities are endless."

"Great old sampler from the U.S... this is the Turbo model, which offers two additional stereo sub-outs, an effects stereo submix, two 24x bit stereo effects processors, and S/PDIF digital I/O.

I was able to get at least 4 minutes worth of consecutive sampling time on the internal hard drive, and used it mostly to record longer sampled passages - which I then looped, reversed (a very cool on-board feature) and offered up to the rack interface to create out of this world soundscapes.

The rack interface mod (securely bolted in place) will change the tone/composition of anything stored in the internal drive, or on disc. Everything from beautiful (fluttering delays) to brutal (heavy bit crush distortion). The best part is that no matter how mangled your original sample becomes, it will almost always return to it's original form. This means that you can really go to town and experiment.

Unique item. Comes with original manual, power and scuzz cable.
I will include 5x formatted disks for external storage, as well as 2x patch cables as pictured."
