alright, so i want to stop using a computer while making music and im looking for a sampler with pads, i would love something like an mpc/sp404 but cheaper, is there a huge difference between the 1000 and the 500 except of the smaller screen?
also what are some alternatives to it?
>>
samplers are a meme, don't give in
>>
i actually just bought an mpd26 off of ebay. its basically the cheap version of an mpc but you still need a computer.
>>
No, just no

>i dont want anything that requres a computer

Anon I used to think like you until I realized that going either way (full gear or full DAW) is not the best idea

You see, I like going no computer when I want to "jam" or throw together a basic idea. But the issue comes when you want to move past that. Unless you're loaded and have a lot of expensive gear that will sync all your toys (ie a cirklon), you'll find that going no computer can be more frustrating than what it looks. And for all its worth, things like samplers tend to be more oriented towards live performance anyway. Unless you're going to be spending a lot of money on a cool toy like a Octatrack, you'll find how limited most of them are

Having said that, the "muh limitations=creativity" is another discussion for another time, but I'm telling you my personal experience. I went from 100% VST to 100% gear to 75% gear/25% DAW

i didnt say that in the op but its going to be used for live playing/jaming I'm still going to do all the sound design and composing on my daw.
It'd be a suicide to start composing and doing sound design without my precious reaktor f a m
>>
>>61837588
oh ok

if I were you I'd save up and get an OP-1. If you're going to go off DAW I'd try and make it fun

you could sync a ton of stuff with an mpc and a midi splitter
>>
>>61837812
I know that, but it is really hard to do DAW-grade sequencing without really expensive toys. You can sync yes, but unless what you're producing doesn't require anything other than basic sync/sequencing, you'll have problems

what u want is a native instruments maschine mikro. so easy to fit into your workflow but will have u lookin at a screen far less. would also be good for live stuff.
