i still am left wondering about the samplecell II
is it really worth every penny of the price i see them go for? 120$ which isnt much
compared to the original price..
can anyone share their experience with the samplecell card? how its used.. how it sounds.. which apps it can work with. does it show up in OMS as its own device?
im assuming u would trigger it via midi? do u use the IAC bus to talk to it? how does it work??
theres also the softsamplecell software version of the samplecell.. (SSC)http://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/articles/soft-sample-cell-work-protools/http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/feb02/articles/softsamplecell.asp
i know ive brought this up before, but is this ilokked? i know it was discontinued.. this much i remember...
Installing Soft Sample Cell
Installation of Soft Sample Cell is ostensibly simple, and OMS had no problem recognising my setup and installing Soft Sample Cell as an OMS node. Sadly, however, I couldn't get a MIDI response from Soft Sample Cell until I'd switched off my Toast Firewire driver, renamed the Soft Sample Cell extension to get it to load first and sacrificed a couple of goats! This kind of O-M-Mess is not the sort of grief we expect from a 'professional' product. And talking of which, it's way past time the obsolete key floppy disk install system was dropped, as Macs haven't had floppy drives for some generations now. Not only that, but although it installed perfectly well on my external Teac floppy (with suitable Pace extension), it simply refuses to uninstall: the uninstall program loads, the floppy whirrs for around 10 seconds, then it quits. Looks like I'm stuck with Soft Sample Cell...
heres a guide:http://akarchive.digidesign.com/support/docs/Soft_SampleCell_Guide.pdf
looks like version 3.0 requires mac os 9.04+
heres the link to the old thread i had started http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?topic=513.0
i just think these topics are worth revisiting
i remember BT was on here asking for anyone with the samplecell original disk installer.. (he had lost his original disk) and noone answered him i dont think.
but perhaps he found his cd!? he never mentioned it again
