Re: OT: Sound Module Opinions

Thanks Pete- my friend who manages a GC in AZ said to consider the Triton
Rack actually- he said it samples and does tons more- he said the 5080 only
plays back samples and cannot sample itself- but the 5080 and Triton are in
the $1200-$1500 range- I can get a 2080 for prob less than $700- so it
becomes an issue to sample or not to sample- but I like the idea of a sound
module only- Thanks again- Cliff
