i basically have the same question & have asked it before but it never really gets answered. i have an xl. i dont have any effects but i desperately need some! i've heard the eb16 sucks but i was thinking about getting one anyway because i cant get a definitive answer. help me out here fellaz!
i think i need a good filter & some eq. am i right?
i know filtering doesnt work on every song/sample. i know you cant totally get rid of the other sounds. you just drown them out. you've heard queen latifah "unity" or "just another day"? i want to be able to do that. or have you heard lloyd banks "on fire"? that sounds like filtered chops of "tramp" to me. i want to be able to do that. & i really want to be able to drown out vocals like on kanye, common & malik yusef "do you wanna ride". i've toyed around with the eq on soundforge & have been able to achieve this but i dont have a zip on my computer so its not really worthwhile to implement it.
i was thinking about copping the eb16 AND the mfc42 & hoping that they could do what i need them to. then i thought about how stupid that was when for the same money i could probably find an asr 10 (which i KNOW does what i want)
