XV5080 Drum Samples by CoolColJ published on 2011/06/20 02:46:37 +0000 Testing my own drum samples loaded via Smart Media - Recorded via XV5080's digital output 808 kick, sanre and 909 kick, loop and a synthesised kick from Stomper. Testing out drum samples on the XV5080. I mapped them across the keyboard in a single patch, and the filters get turned on and off. You can use 4 tones/samples in a patch in such a manner, while still retaining the synthesis features. The 808 kick and snare uses the FXM trick as shown here to add "life" to the static samples http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/nov03/articles/xvjvmasterclass.htm?session=f9f7e5e0282848d9a0f7cd70cc04cd63 I trimmed the sounds right at the very start of the attack snap, and I can't detect the transient being cut off. A problem with the Roland samplers in the past like the S550 and S760! The XV5080 engine could make a nice stand alone sampler.... if they still existed... I wonder how the Fantom compares?
