IF you have an older operating system. I don't know about Mac, but as for Windows if you have anything later than XP, you'll need to either get a V-Synth XT/GT to load samples. You can still hook up a mic and record samples directly to a V-Synth.

Personally, I prefer to load samples, and this has been impossible since I switched to 7. :pissed:

aha, i see.
i too prefer to load samples rather than record direct to synth.
i'm running Windows8 so if i got one it would need to be the XT/GT
still, the V-Synth's interface doesn't quite appeal to me.


As I explained above, you do NOT need to record samples into the V-Synth (although that works very well). You load your samples from the computer onto the CF card, and then insert this in the V-Synth. Completely painless and easy

A more serious answer but maybe not the easiest is the Alesis QS series.

I remember reading in the manual that you can load your own samples. I've never done it, though.

No problem, mate :-)
Regarding the interface I must say it's the best I've ever come across in a synth, so you shouldn't worry about that if you think this synth could fit your needs.

I have a Blofeld KB and have zero issues with sampling on it. It requires a program on your computer, but it's basically a matter of loading a sample up in the program and hitting "send".

can you assign different samples to specific keys on the keyboard or does it take one sample and map that one sample along the whole length of the keyboard?
