Korg microSAMPLER praised
Korg's microSAMPLER was released with the aim of bringing easy and affordable sampling to the masses.
This month, Sound on Sound Magazine has been taking a look back to see if Korg achieved its mission.
As Sound on Sound Magazine's reviewer noted, huge advancements in recording technology has made life hard for traditional hardware such as samplers.
A wealth of high quality music libraries and improved DAW integration with hardware units all made the future of traditional sampling to look somewhat uncertain.
If a new sampler was to compete in this changing market, it was going to have to offer something special - so, did the Korg microSAMPLER make the grade?
In essence, the Korg microSAMPLER provides easy to use featured sampling, a loop sequencer, and internal effects.
This sampler offers line and mic inputs and comes with a gooseneck microphone.
Five different sampling methods are available to enable you to cover all your different sampling needs.
The Korg microSAMPLER can also run on batteries, allowing you to perform and capture samples anywhere.
Sound on Sound Magazines reviewer commented: "It's great to have a microSAMPLER around for whenever inspiration strikes".
A resampling function on this new model even lets you play existing layered samples with effects and capture the result as a brand new sample.
Sound on Sound's reviewer commented: "The microSAMPLER aims to be as relevant as ever, perhaps even more so."
If you're looking for a versatile sampling keyboard, then look no further than the Korg MicroSAMPLER.
