    Unhappy It`s a start

    If I`m not mistaken the s20 is a sampler that just loops.That might be a problem in the future.Loops are tired after awhile.Unless you have software in which you can tap out patterns like a drum machine.You may need a sampler that acts like a drum machine.Some cheap alternatives are the SU700 by Yamaha $600 or
    The Electribe S by Korg $300.These machines alow you to tweak and manipulate bits and pieces of samples and also performs like drum machines.Again I`m not expirienced with software so a program may exist alreadt that can perform these tasks.I hope this helped you.
    Peace

    Unhappy I don`t have a clue!!!

    I`ve been using hardware all my life kid.I can`t give you any more knowledge.Perhaps someone else can give you more insight.Good luck with your tracks!!! I plan to have my tracks somewhere out there eventually.Peace
