About Hardware Samplers

Hardware Samplers have been a staple of modern music production for the past few decades. Samplers play back sound recordings, rather than generating sounds themselves.

Although they don't generate sounds themselves, they are similar to synthesizers in a lot of ways. Most will have the capability to manipulate recordings by running the sound through various filters, LFOs and effects. They also usually feature things like step sequencing, polyphony and more, making them very powerful instruments. You could play a chord based on the sound of someone smashing up a TV for example.

Some units actually let you produce entire tracks within the sampler itself. Two solid examples of how powerful these things have become are the Akai MPC Live and MPC X units.
