ALM Busy Circuits announced Squid Salmple at Superbooth.
Writing to a USB stick but with onboard RAM for low latency playback. All the usual sample type controls are there, pitch, reverse, bit rate/depth, looping, and you can get 8 things going at once. It’s designed to be very patchable and very quick to use sampling directly through the front panel. It’s all triggerable and can find its own start and end points so you can immediately start playing with the sound. It can be patched up as a tape loop with continuous sampling.
