    What's a Sample?


    A sample is a digital recording of a sound. In the context of this conversation, the PC3K (like the K2X00 series) can load and play back external wave data -- as opposed to the PC3X, which can only play patches created from its own internal wave ROM (onboard sample set).

    However, neither the PC3K nor the PC3X are true samplers, in that neither can record samples from an external source (i.e. through a mic or line input).

      zoink, you're talking to Dave Weiser, a Kurzweil employee.
      If you need a KSP script, e-mail me! Depending on amount of work, the price can be arranged!

        Oh. Strange question then, isn't it?

          It was sarcastic.

            Man oh man, this is great. Now that someone from Kurzweil actually knows what a sample is, just imagine the products they might come up with!

            As you consider all this it's important to point out that the lack of a sampling input on the PC3K8 isn't of any real consequence. If you have a computer you most likely have a number of ways to record audio and turn it into a WAV file, which the PC3K8 can easily load. If you don't have a computer there are some nice handheld stereo digital recorders available for way under $200 that will give you amazing stereo WAVs. You're looking for 16 bit 44.1K.

              Sorry for messing with y'all.....
              48K would be fine as well.
              I just got back from an extended 10 day NAMM trip last night.

              After 9 years of attending the show, and always threatening, "next year I'll take a few extra days off after the show to enjoy the nice weather"...... I finally executed that plan! Spent Monday on the beach and Tuesday took my wife to Disney for her birthday.
              Flew back to snow, ice and rain in Boston last night..... but it's still good to be back to civilization.

              We had an epically successful show - got hooked up with a number of young artists - keyboardists for Lady Gaga, Kesha, C-Lo Green, etc.
              And of course it was good to hang with old friends like Geoff Downes, Darian Sahanaja (Brian Wilson), Debbie Shair (Heart) and Brian Kehew (Moog Cookbook).

              Best of all, was Ellis Hall.....

              I pulled him aside later and hassled him for stealing all of my best riffs.

                OK - enough goofing off. Get back to work.

                Please check up on those ribbon controllers - they're currently discussed in the Kronos thread, I've recommended them to a few people, and now they're nowhere in sight.

                Ya - it's always good to get back from a vacation. Even if it was a really good one.

                  Dave you have not understood how to play this game... vids or didn't happen ... Uh there is one video...

                  There is something quite epic waiting for you in the Sonikmatter forums Good that you took the extra days off (though someone didn't appreciate it).

                  Here is a smart link to the vid:
