How bad is bad?
Could you please elaborate a little more on how those samples sound on the DPX-1 vs played on the 2002? Artifacts? Loops not working? Noise? Filter envelopes sounding wrong?
While I do search for some character, thence my purchase of the DPX-1, I am not really interested in having the original Prophet 2002 samples sound like grungy fx. I want to hear how Sequential managed to do their best at the time to capture a string section, or a french horn, within the limitations of 80's technology. I do not want to add any more limitations, if possible.
As a side note, some Mirage instrument sounds I play on my DPX sound better to my ears than their E-mu counterparts, so I got the idea that people at Ensoniq were sometimes better at sampling - and sample editing - than their colleagues at E-mu Systems (that makes me want to search for more Mirage disks than those I got along with the DPX). So now I want to check the skills of Sequential guys at the time. Thence my Wayne County diskettes purchase plan.
