I wear shoes. This runs to a bass rig. Most shows I play you cant depend on the PA for snything other than vocals.

Hear me out... I've been doing sampled hip hop kinda experimental stuff (extremely experimental for the sp404 lofi hip-hop crowd). Octatrack does the songs essentially. Volca does drone blips and bleeps and shit with delay and reverb. And I want a third to do exclusively one shots of conversations and field recordings. And I wanna indulge in gear.

I was asking because I've been fucking with the OT for the past month and so far it does everything the Sample did, at least the way I used it which is that exactly, drone blips. Now with the OT I can just fuck with the loop, resample it and then I add that as a one shot.


What other sample do you have in mind?

I was thinking an sp404 I guess. The OT is so sick I'm truly in love with it, but doing structured live sets with it shows it's weak points. Organizing songs into banks is ok but I have about 20 songs squeezed into 16 banks with no way to change tempos easily.
I really love syncing the volca with it and using dubbed out Foley percussion loops to do transitions instead of EDM dj delay stutter stuff, and I can change projects stealthily while the delay occillates. Basically I want to add what a radio morning show host would have haha. Just a bunch of one shots I can trigger whenever in any bank at any time to fill the gaps and add to the set.

What pedal is that? Are you running the Minotaur through it?

I used to have an MPC1000 which I miss. How good is that Volca Sample as a fun thing for making beats and getting inspiration? I'm assuming there are no dynamics, meaning the keys aren't sensitive but can you adjust the volume of each sample you trigger in some sort of step mode?

I still think I'm leaning towards getting the MPC Live somewhere down the line instead since I know what I'd be getting.

For making beats I absolutely love the sample. Easy to use, big library, fun functions easy to access. You're absolutely right about the "keys" - no velocity sensitivity. All parameters are adjustable per step with automation though, yeah.

I had a Volca Sample for a while but it never felt like more than a sketchpad to me. Just a bit too limited to stay interesting without being hands on all the time and a little too fiddly when you are. But it is hard to really complain for the price, especially used.

If you can spare the extra cash, the Elektron Model:Samples seems like a much more fully featured version of the Volca: full size knobs, velocity sensitive pads, longer patterns with parameter locks, simple lfo and effects built in. Haven't tried one but I can see it being very performative and easy to use.

Definitely agree about the Elektron. I have pretty simple needs so the Volca is lovely, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't somewhat tempted by the model:samples.

Bought some monitors and a new bass so I had to rearrange a bunch of the studio:

20190301_173923 (800x600).jpg

20190301_173915 (800x600).jpg

So happy with everything! It's a lot more open and better laid out than I had it before. I also traded for a Korg Poly 800 that I'm going to setup above/behind the DX7 when I fix it up and get a new stand
