Default Sampling board..

Alright I've been looking into adding effects and loops into my live playing so lately I've been looking into a sampling board. Now I pretty much figured out that the Roland spd-s is the standard but it seems a little costly plus I don't need any of the built in presets, effects, and drum sounds, all I need is something to trigger my own loops. So besides the spd-s is there anything that just stores and triggers loops that I could use while playing live? Any help is muchly appreciated.

Well, you could use a laptop running software like 'Ableton Live' and triggering specific MIDI events and do it that way, if you've got an appropriate system. All you'd need would be the software and a bit of patience to learn how to do it.

Use the SPD-S.

Once youre familiar with the extra features, youll use them :)
The internal sounds can be wiped if you dont need them, but get a type1 512MB CF card as a backup for your samples, as the onboard memory isnt massive

Electronics, particularly ROLAND electronics will always cost you, but Ive been using the SPD-S for about 3 years now and the difference it has made to my band, particularly live, is staggering.

I second that the SPD-S is actually well worth its value,the amount of sounds it can bring to your music is infinite and with a creative imagination the possibilites are endless. The fact that you can trigger your own sounds with such good quality means you can use truly original sounds in your playing, which i love :p
