It might have the same casing as the ESi-32 , but its a lot more powerful. you have read the stats above , so I wont go on raving about RAM and polyfoni , what I can say is that this sampler is quality throughout .The filters are good , (real analogue sounding) and the features you get are awsome. Its basically the next generation of budget samplers. you can compress, stretch and move the samples in 3d + lots more. I have some analogue synths and a few rackmounted digital modules ,this is definetly in the center of my musical setup. Not to sound to biased (I probably am!) nut I love it. The only negative thing I have to say is that at first its not that easy to get to grip with the operating system, but after a day or two of fiddling with it, it becomes very logical and easy to operate. All in all a good buy at this price

Comments About the Sounds:
clean good high quality sound. The 16 filters are very good. (you can have one filter for each voice. example 64 lowpassfilters at once!!)

(Thanks to Steffen V Torset for this info.)
