SP-303 Dr. Sample

Boss introduced the SP?303 Dr. Sample, a low?cost phrase sampler for DJs, remixers and musicians.

The SP?303's Standard recording mode offers 31 seconds of mono sampling at 44.1 kHz. Two additional modes are provided when more sampling time is needed, or when Lo?fi sound is desired. Sampling time can be easily expanded using optional SmartMedia cards; a 64MB card provides 33 minutes of CD?quality mono sampling. Once samples are onboard, tempo can be easily adjusted without changing pitch using the BPM control.

The SP?303 features an onboard pattern sequencer that lets users create complete songs by arranging samples recorded to the two banks of eight trigger pads (two additional banks can be accessed via SmartMedia). A quantize function corrects timing inconsistencies and works great for drum programming. The SP303's sequencer can store up to 7,500 notes in internal memory.

The onboard effects processor includes 26 effects like reverb, flanger, delay and Voice Transfomer,

plus algorithms like distortion, filter, Slicer, Isolator, Lo?Fi and Vinyl Simulator. Effects can be resampled
