I’ve spoken with people who tell me the Kronos sampler sounds amazing, I would assume it’s as good as the original motif which was released in 2001-2003 and that thing has character and sound I’ve been trying to recreate and can’t do so ITB, I can get about 90% of the way there with heavy plug-in treatment. Korg also has tons of samplers that are used everywhere and give off an amazing sound, saturation and character as well, I would assume their flagship workstation has a great sampler that adds depth and saturation, I would consider the motif to be modern and have a modern sampler, are you saying that it produces exactly what I put into it nearly perfectly? cause its sounds so much warmer fuller and rich after sampling into it and I would assume the Kronos is not to far off of that.

obviously I'm not talking about loading samples but actually sampling/recording them into the unit
