What you can do with an Akai s20 Sampler

This is a little synth riff recorded and sequenced live on an Akai S-20 sampler I found at a yard sale today. I've never had a proper hardware sampler so this promises to be fantastic fun for $20.

All sounds are from the microkorg except the sine wave that defaults to pad #1 when you start the device. I transposed it down a step or two to match the pitches I was playing with.

More you can do with the Akai s20.  Note the clicky mechanical buttons.   They aren't pressure sensitive but you can always tell if you've hit them or not.  :)
