” Used Roland S770 Sampler. The Roland S770 is still one of the best samplers around. This one need a new LED display panel. Very cool box. Smoke Free Studio only. Purchased new buy seller.

“Once considered the Ferarri of samplers! Expanded to 16MB RAM. Includes RC-100 controller, MU-1 Mouse, and Digital RGB cable for connection with Atari SC-1224 Monitor. (I am selling one in another auction.) Comes with several system diskettes from version 1.00 to Version 2.25.
Unit starts up but stays in system initialize mode. Can be booted via SCSI. Could use a thorough cleaning and diagnostic. This unit needs a good home.!” Link
“> We’ve owned this S770 since new. It has been fitted with the maximum RAM of 16 MB and has an internal 40MB Hard drive.
> It also comes with the original Owner’s Manual, midi cables, SCSI cables, Roland RGB cable, original Roland Sample CD, Roland mouse and original Roland system disks. Studio use only. Good condition.
> The liquid crystal display does not work, but was never very usable when it did work cause it’s very small. Much better to connect an external screen to it (use an old TV set via the monochrome outlet, or Roland RGB colour screen with the lead supplied).” Link

“The Roland S770 is a 16 bit rack mounted sampler with CGA output to use with a monitor. it has numerous features including 40 MB SCSI hard drive built in, 16 megs of RAM, analog filters, built in resampling, extternal SCSI port. It is essentially a computer with a custom OS that controls a MIDI sampler. A large amount of samples were created for this sampler, which was the premier sampler of the day, used in multiples by Hans Zimmer to create sound scores for Hollywood.
LCD display built in, Six analog outputs, two balanced XLR inputs.
Comes with a proprietary 2 button mouse, AC power cord, system disks, and three revisions of printed manuals. You will need one of these to understand the complex systems involved. Many think this is the best sounding hardware sampler ever made. To my ear, it is warmer than the streaming samples of current vintage coming off a computer HD, including the most expensive libraries. The Roland hardware converters, and clever system touches like random stereo placement, give it a wonderful, unique, rich, analog-like sound for a digital unit.
This unit was used in a professional recording studio by the original owner. It is in good working order. It has two defects: 1) The ganged stereo recording input control is missing the inner segment shaft and knob. This is only used when recording samples directly into the unit. To change the stereo balance from the noon position, one may use a pencil eraser or screwdriver or leave it set at full normal stereo. 2) The backlight for LCD stopped working sometime in the last few months since it has been in storage. LCD itself works fine. If you get a CGA monitor and wire up a cable from the DIN connector to the monitor, you will not need the LCD and will have a far more usable display.” Auction ended.

“Got this in a package deal but don’t need another sampler. Not bothering with learning to use this one, but it does power up, display works perfectly, RAM is fully loaded & OS v. 2.25 is installed, all buttons communicate and it does receive midi from a controller. Great shape aside from some scratches on the top, most likely from previously being rack mounted.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
