Samplers have revolutionised the way people think about music, allowing the combination of styles and sounds that may ordinarily not go together into something brilliant and unique. Nearly all samplers also have sequencing capabilities and Sequencers tend to have a sampling option. This allows for step-edting of the samples and sounds, meaning that complex patterns, beats and melodies can be constructed on the fly on one device.

About Samplers & Sequencers

A Sampler is an electronic instrument that uses samples or recordings to generate new sounds. These samples are either loaded onto or recorded into the device, to be then played back or sequenced by onboard pads or keys. Samplers are mostly popular with electronic musicians, but they can also be used in traditional band situations to add diversity. A lot of samplers, such as the Roland SP 404 SX and SP 555, allow you to edit the sample’s start and end points, pitch and other parameters - you can also add FX to manipulate your samples. The Nord Wave is a synthesizer that allows samples to be used as its sound source.
