Re: question re: hardware samplers?

I really enjoy the Traktor remix deck approach to sampling.  Recently I 
have taken to running Traktor and Mobius in Live 8.  I loop live with 
Mobius and DJ the resulting loops with Traktor Remix decks.  Tres kewl…  
wish I had more time to explore the many workflow possibilities therein.

BTW, I have a few flagship EMU samplers and the entire EMU sample library 
in my attic if any one wants the stuff-- ping me.  They are absolutely 
phenomenal sampler/synths and the sound library is world class.  I love 
the stuff..  but I am never going back to racks full of gear connected 
with snakes. I am too old for the schlepp and these days, virtual 
instruments sound absolutely stunning!
