is what it's called.

I'd prefer Focusrite over Presonus but both are good choices.
Tascam and Roland make good interfaces too.


i think im going to get the presonus studio 1824. I use to have a tascam 4 track back in 1997. lol the good ol days.
So whats the difference in samling from the gemini ds1224 vs just sampling into a mixer/mpc or just through the mpc?

I read up on it. This thing is a BEAST of a mixer/interface! If you have the budget and looking for hands on control this would be the thing to get. Always make sure you can return it if it's not what you want.

The Pre-Orders are $999.99 right now, however the 24-bit/48kHz resolution bugs me. I do not know if the fader send MIDI, perhaps they have a higher tier board that does.

No midi, no sequencer, just a looper, no chop, I had to hit the button to start and stop like when your favorite song came on the radio in 1984 pause mix style. It was a HORRIBLE introduction into the world of sampling for me but I knew there was something better. My next machine after that, Roland R-8 and 4 years afterwards ASR-10. I was FINALLY HAPPY.

I had the DS8 which was the $99 dollar version. That **** was awesome sounding, but all it was is a one button sampler with 8 seconds to play. It taught me to sample because I used to randomly record at first, until I realized that its best to sample on the beats. It had a pitch fader so I used to bend samples which was dope. When it sampled, it gave you a loud recording but in a good way that the bass comes out strong. Also it had great distortion if you sampled too loud into it, well not too loud, just enough to get juicy thick bassed out distortions.

Eh, I got drunk one day and spilt beer on it one night and never worked since. I still have it to this day, or I may think so. But it was my first. After that came the Roland MS1, then the SP505, then the SP303, then the SP606, then the MPC500, then the MV8800, then the MPC Live, then the Digitakt and then I finally found happiness with the DJS-1000. :smoker:
