The Roland S-550 sounds great for percussion and has 8 indie outs and a mix out. Not a huge amount of ram, but drums don't need a lot :-)

Isn't the Octatrack an Option?

The 550's were 12bit / 32khz, but none the worse for that. Same goes for the S330's. The challenge is that you need a monitor and their proprietary mouse to use either properly, and ram was pretty restricted.

The OP doesn't want an in the box sampler, but perhaps samples could be captured via a DAW like Reaper, processed there, and then exported to something like a Volca Sample? Volca Samples have sound a minute's worth of sample time, and like the Roland S550 / 330 are 12 bit. This seems to give drum & percussion sounds a nice crunchiness to them..

The roland samplers use MSX compatible mice. You can get/make a convertor to use any mouse with them. Look into vintage computer DIY sites. The original roland mouse is junk compared with a $2 optical mouse.

I recently sold my s330, together with the Roland mouse. That mouse was no great shakes, but the screen resolution on the 'S' series sampler GUI was so low that it didn't matter. Good to know to there is a cheap alternative out there for those to that need it.

Cheers, Blair
