    Basically this is the deal. I need to know some recommendations to the best and most affordable samplers. I'm planning on writing an article and if anyone could help by providing some input it would be appreciated. I'm accumulating info on the top 5 samplers for HipHop music and why. Please indicate product hi-lights and any comments on ease of use, affordability, etc. Basically what would an aspiring producer want to or need to know.

    Thanks all! And if you're an aspiring writer yourself contact me at slewis@feedstop.com.

    DJ Chriss,

    the latency is bearly nothing, its so amazing how quick it responds, as quik as my akia s3000 any day dude, i seriously recommend it.

    I use cubase 2.8 to control it though its a non vst version, though ive tried it with vst and its just the same, as quick as soundfonts.

    Also there are lots of soundcards on the market the are GSIF compatible, compatible with giga enabling you to use giga with cards that have multiple outs.

    One thing that really shook me when i got gigasampler 1.64 was its ultra quick response.

    It takes a few steps to configure though once running its a sampling dream come true, I can sequence 2 hours of complex live music all from cubase live with gigasampler.

    My freind run's it on a 233 and it performs amazingly!

    I only have a 450amd, and it handles nicely too!

    Amazing! I'm still getting my RS7000 though. I'm sick and tired of sequencing on the computer.

    i hate it too, i use a retro midi only cubase, it runs my hardware like a dream and can handle gigasampler

    those vst versions of cubase can be a terrible strain on a slower computer, if theres enough hardware to go around its best to use a midi only sequencer. Our peers have been doing it for years, i used to use an atari 1040ste with cubase 3.1 and that handles so much better in an all midi situation.

    See that's the great thing about the hardware samplers... they've got a fixed DSP so you won't come short at any time... Voices, Effects, envelopes. All are matched in a hardware compartement and you have a hands-on OS made entirely for this type of performance.
    I can't believe I can write this at my alcoholic state of mind.... man... Maybe I AM god???? .... nah.... but it's a nice thought though...
