I recently acquired an S5000 to replace my S1000 an S2800i. I have maxed out the RAM and am about to get the FX board and possibly the voice expansion board too. I was considering getting the USB board but I have two questions:
1. Is the S5000's USB really as buggy as people claim?
2. Is it possible to connect the sampler to an external USB HD or, as I suspect, is the board only designed to connect the sampler to a PC/Mac for sample and program editing?
3. If so, could the S5000 access programs, multis and samples via from a USB HD connected to the PC?
Thanks! I am so happy with that S5000 sampler that I am considering getting rid of the E-mu E4K!
