This is in response to the review which talks about the su700 adding a delay type effect over some of the samples.

Well, when you sample a phrase or whatevers and u slow it down, of course the su 700 is gonna need to fill in the spaces between the notes, so thats why theres a delay type effect. It actually adds a certain character to the sample. Anyways, I was gonna say that if u go into the sample length parameter and change the sample length in real-time which seems to fix this problem.

This is a beautiful beautiful one of a kind machine, not a piece of shit like the mv-8000.

The su-700 is greatly undervalued. I saw one in a pawn shop for 200$ recently. A poor man’s MPC? The effects alone are worth that. I'm honestly not that savvy with the sequencer, but a friend of mine swears by it. I mainly use the su triggered live and with the 8 loops. You can save i think it's 8 "scenes" which includes all the effects settings, and recall them at the touch of a button. Nice. The sound of the filters is a mater of opinion, i like them. If you want to make noize/ambient this b0x r0x. I'm looking into triggering it from a tr707. You will want the scsi expansion. I set the thing up as a midi controller once with live and it was swell, i could only figure out how to get each of the knobs to act as controller for one midi cc, not banked by the number of parameter knobs. The onscreen changes were reflected on the 700 and the 700 effected the on screen parameters. If you try this and want to save it you must have a sample on each channel or it will not store the setup for that channel.

What is not good, my floppy drive failed, the load time is stupid long, the os has some bugs, scsi sux ass, no support, sample editing is not graphical, can load save raw sounds as aiff but uses a proprietary sample format for loops/songs ect. i give it a 4 out of 5 because of the $$$ to Badssness ratio. If you pay 2-3 bills yer gona be stoaked.

i have it for three days and i am already useing it in ful...didn't read the manual jet and i have no problems

it is just the thing i need for live performance because i work a lot with live looping. sound is excelent and the efx killer

i am happy that mine had a 32mb of ram instaled so i have almost 3 minutes of stereo sampling time at 16bit and 44.1khz

the only thing missing is loop divide functions that you can finde on most of akai, emu and other pro samplers but for this you would need a better display on the SU700 unit

this i definetly a pice of gear taht is to stay with me for a long long time. i just gota expand it to SCSI and i am on my way

i had the su for a long time, what i love is the direkt knobbing of filters and most parameters, i made a lot of live acts with it, and what really sucks is the enormous time needed to load samples!!! aprox 20 min and more for 60 mb!!!! is difficult to play chromatic as u need to copy the sample... only 8 loops direct timestreching per song, thats not enough! u cannot see the samples u re playing in the display,it s confusing, u have to know where u were placeing them... when u ve been storing whole song set,u cannot extract 1 or 2 songs without deleting the others and resaving them!!! digital out only without effects!! the sound itself is not so good. a bit lofi. but it has its own charme. this sampler is a big toy, with nice effects, but if u want serious stuff,keep ur money and get the mpc1000, it s far way better in sound and possibilities...!!! at least with the new os!!! as u will never get an os update for the su700.....
