Default Re: Alesis Sample Pad

One cool thing is, it will take samples with variuos sample rates. All 16bit, but 44.1khz (CD quality) and down: 22,050, 11,025, etc. are all usable. So, depending on the sound, you can conserve space and stretch the usable ram. You wouldn't want to downsample a cymbal, but a kick, or timp hit, or toms for example don't absolutely need that full resolution. You can really expand your available custom sounds by resampling where appropriate.
