The Roland MS-1

It's an old and very basic sampler that I would never get rid of.

I know there's already posts on here about it, but what the hell!

Awesome for making an MPC-style mute group
Four different sampling rates for very lo-fi sounds
Pitch knob for realtime pitch/time changing
Simple sequencer
Battery powered

I have been using it with non-standard CF cards using an adapter and have gotten some unique glitches out of it. Was able to make a disc image of one of my glitched cards that turns it into a strange looper. Another glitch I found while recording lets you play pads then strike the glitched pad and it will play back what you just played on the other pads.. Very strange and wonderful simple sampler. You can usually find them for under $100 (Mine was $20 like new.) A great addition to any SP- setup.

Whoa can you explain what you did to get the looping trick or post a video? I'd love to check that out

The MS-1 is dope! I'm still trying to find a card that works for mine. A couple I thought would do the trick, didn't. All that glitchy goodness sounds like fun. I just recorded an all MS-1 jam on my four track. Awesome little sampler.

The MS-1 is dope. I route stuff through it as a hardware effect all the time. Kinda like an Elektron Analog Heat (or really a OTO Biscuit) but cheaper and more OG. I should clarify: I wish I could find or afford a hw Biscuit.
