Re: Alesis SamplePad?
I don't know about the SPD-S, but I can tell you that hardware sampling is a real pain, and nowhere near as flexible as using a sound editor to sample or at least manipulate the sounds. The SPD-SX is a sampler, but I would never, ever use it for that. Last time I plugged a mic into a hardware sampler was about 20 years ago. I would sooner record a sound with my iPad, email it to my laptop, and tweak it in Sound Forge. In fact, I've done just that with excelent results!
