Nice! And I'm happy to see that you have a past relationship with one of my all-time favourite machines, the Yamaha SU700! Deeply underrated (and with two fatal design flaws, which effectively stopped it from becoming a hit seller). I still use it, controlled by the G2 Patch Mutator, generating some serious complexity!

Cheers Palle - yeah, I sometimes wish I still had it.

Two fatal flaws? Well I can remember the SCSI zip option being very slow.. (still better than the regular disk drive though)

What's the 2nd?

Yeah, it was a great machine - I never got my head around the MPC but thought the SU700 trumped it for quick and powerful sample manipulation (probably lacking on MIDI though - never used that much)

I think you'd love the Octatrack Tom
The RS7000 is another great sampler/sequencer too
You can sometimes find scsi-ide adapters, then use a CF card, I do this with my RS7000 and it speeds sample loading a fair bit, so might work with the SU700 too.

Great mini interview BTW Guinness ftw!

That you could never merge songs from different sets - they were stuck together for eternity.

And yes, the RS7000 (the successor of the SU700) is a fantastic machine, too! I got one when they were discontinued and sold out. But it's big and complex, more of a work station, and lacks the directness and weirdness of its little brother.

Thanks for the tip about SCSI-IDE-CF adaptor chain. I've been wondering about that. Will try to find those!

(sorry for these OT ramblings)
