I am new to the sampler world and will be purchasing my first sampler soon.
I am familiar with the upgrades, options, and specs on both machines, however, I am uncertain on what one is better.
I know the emu has beat munging and auto looping. The Yamaha also has really cool options to play with loops also. I'm not sure if no auto looping is a deficit, is it easy to get perfect, in-time loops, without auto looping?
I also know the Yamaha has awesome effects and the ability to read many file types. Does this work well - Is the e-mu comparable?
I would appreciate any advice on this topic - I am an amature and look forward to seeing what you have to say.
