Hey boombipbass,
I’m also an enormous fan of 12 bit samplers, and the sp1200 being the best of all of them imo...
Sadly I waited too long and now am not ever willing to pay what the sp’s are going for on eBay, so I’ve done some research as well...
I’m a complete newbie at diy, but I’m hoping that if no one else ever makes a worthy emulation/replacement for the sp1200, that maybe one day I can figure out how to make of myself....consider it a lifelong passion project of sorts...
I just ordered this 12 bit diy project https://nootropicdesign.com/audiohacker/
Any thoughts?
And in case you haven’t seen it already, here is a FASCINATING interview with Dave Rossum!
