I still miss the sampler on my Numark 1975

Hi all,

I was wondering if there's a standalone sampler/looper that is as intuitive as the 4-bank sampler on the old Numark 1975? I traded mine in about a dozen years ago when the crossfader crapped out on me, and I still really miss it.

It's a bit hard to explain, so please bear with me: using the four-second sampler across the four banks, I would take a seamless 4 or 8-beat loop and then punch each bank in and out for some interesting effects. So you could do 1&2 three times then 3&4 once to get a nice tension/release thing, but I found that one of my favourite combinations was 1&3 and 2&4.

I hope the above makes sense - basically I'm looking for something similar where you can split a loop across several banks and punch in/out on the fly. I'd prefer a standalone hardware solution, but am open to a software workaround if one exists.

Thanks in advance.

there are several stand-alone samplers. Redsound makes the Soundbite samplers, which were used quite a lot a few years ago when vinyl was still dominant. On the fly looping, very easy

then there is Roland, with the SP series samplers. also used by DJ's (albeit less than the Redsounds) offer more functions

Technics SL1210mk2s and a Freevox DJ CLUB

Still use my Numark DM1975 in my home set-up. The right amount of resistance on the faders is perfect. I have a Stanton DJ-F1 filter plugged onto it's processor loop running with 3 Technics SL-1200 MK2's. Though, the face plate has nearly been smudged off due to 23 years of constant use. And yes, My crossfader also died so many years ago. I bring around my Xone:62 for gigs.
