Re: Alesis Sample Pad
The toal of all samples combined cannot exceed 14mb, that's the memory (ram) limit, and part of why the pad is so inexpensive.
It's really made for basic drum hits and short sound effects, and can hold almost 3 minutes worth of those! that's a lot, considering how little memory is required by most snares, toms, kicks, claps, congas, etc.
But it's not designed to play backing tracks, or hold a LOT of samples at one time. Those features are found in other units, and you also pay a LOT more for them.
