    Ok It¡¦s time for me to bite the bullet and admit to myself that- as much as I love playing bass the way I do and much fun as it is muddying things up x many fx- that the sounds that I really do want to make, I just can¡¦t do with a bass. It doesn¡¦t add to the music and I increasingly find that using that tone/ squelch/noise compromises the groove of my noise.
    I need some advice about using different samplers (what¡¦s hot and what¡¦s not¡K) and how to trigger those samples , and also/possibly modulate those sounds using a a footswitch (whilst still playing bass). Is there anyone here who could offer me some advice about this?
    What do you use? How is it set up?
    - Local underground music scenes here (Taipei) are in their infancy and its difficult to meet people with enough knowledge to find out about stuff like this.

    I¡¦m posting this here because I believe there are people who frequent this forum who can help me, more than others. I¡¦d really appreciate any advice you can give. Thanks, Tom
