I was saying exactly what you said, somebody said that the low_hiss would never have xyz feature, and i said, not so much, its open source, any feature can be added.

I swear down, some people just pick an argument on here for the sake of it, and then argue with themselves !!!
No offense, but your grammar and syntax cause what you write to be difficult to comprehend.

A large part of the SP sound being the pitch algo, both software coders (Low Hiss and the one working for Isla) have probably come to the same mathematical conclusions, as the original Emu manual was pretty detailed and transparent on how it worked.
They'll also be using the same SSI filters.
Things like sample input filter and dac may differ.

I expect them to sound quite similar in the end, with respective strengths in other departments.

Anyway we won't have to speculate long on the sound part, as both projects have pretty much the same timeline, and are about to offer sound examples of their full prototypes.
No, it’s not too early. I’ve heard early experiments with both, which mostly relied on their software quality, and Low Hiss’ sounded similar to an original SP-1200, and the Isla didn’t.

I cannot wait until some slut is able to do a head to head comparison between an Original, this 2400, and the version @ Low Hiss is working on.

Just think, a few months ago neither of these new options existed. And now, now there are two "new" versions in the works, and moving along nicely.

Good times.

lol , All these clones , are what they used to call beat biters , this is the them song , and it's so hip hop .
In the Golden Era of hip hop it was a major rule to not bite (copy) someone else style , thats why you have such a large variety in styles in artist back then because they were original . Today people don't respect those Golden era values thats why everything sounds the same . The good thing about this is it taught you to be original and not a cheap knock off . Just listen to her voice in this song you can tell she meant every word . I'm sorry but these SP-1200 clones is straight up biting why not do something Original .

The beat is certainly a blatant ripoff of The Honeydrippers - Impeach The President.

Shawn Lov??? Is that you?? Gotta be...

The great irony here is you used a song (10% Diss) as an example of people biting beats and why they shouldn't....and she used the Impeach The President break which was used, several times, the year prior to Lyte As A Rock being released...

Top Billin' and Do The James

But yeah, the golden age.....SO ORIGINAL

I have much respect for Shawn Lov. The man is true to his convictions and he’s one of the last true Boom-Bap producers left.

Most of you make these girly “Lo-Fi Beats”, which hit like a pencil against wet tissue paper, and you think you’re Boom-Bap producers. I’d take Shawn’s opinion over the next Dilla sycophant’s.

Whoa now, no need to drag Dilla into this.

I love both of those things, and a dozen others.

I have noticed an increased amount of Kordbot updates on FB since they announced the SP...Bit of a charm offensive going on

Proof in the SP pudding will be the sound clips

I didn't realise the SP1200 was exclusive to the hip hop genre only

New website at Isla instruments, you can't click on the Sp-2400 pre-order button yet, but it's there...

So it looks like there won't be a crowdfunding campaign for this product.

Ha ha ! Last days I've tried it with /products/sp-2400 to follow the same kind of path as the kordbot, should have checked all the possibilities.
Well done, thanks
