ah. you are getting far more into it than i am.

i lost my interest in the mod routings when i saw there was no way to 
modulate loop points in real time.

i don't do very sophisticated sampling. basically i just want a bunch 
of memory and layers and some filters for tone control. the Akai is 
used mainly for drums, ancilliary plucks, saved ambient loops, sfx, and 
samples from movies.

one of my favourite things to do is leave the s/pdif from the PCM80 (my 
looper) plugged into the Akai to capture any loop i want to save for 
later. it is a bit more trouble than saving loops with the Repeater, 
but it's not _that_ hard. having the PS/2 keyboard plugged in also 
makes a big difference.
