The Junk-Fi Sampler JF-2 has been discontinued to make room for the Junk-Fi Sampler JF-3 coming to you soon!
We have received many comments and opinions about the JF-2. Here are some of the more common questions about the sampler:
Why can't I hear the sound going into the input?
Unfortunately, it's by design. The only sound you will hear out of this thing is the sample being played back... either looped or one-shot.
When I make a long sample and play it back, sometimes I can only hear a second or so worth of sound... especially when looping. WTF?
Yes... this is another undocumented and unappreciated "feature" of the sampler. You will find that on some settings of the PITCH knob (when you record a sample) you can get the whole sample to play back. It's super fussy.
I hear a clicking sound in the sample being played back. What's that?
It's actually part of the LO-FI (junk-fi?!!?) circuitry. Most people appreciate the extra noisiness.
How long can you sample?
Actually a maximum of 30 to 90 seconds depending on where the PITCH knob is set. Of course, you can sample for shorter times.
No sir. I didn't like it. What can you do for me?
We will be offering the JF-3 sampler at a future date. For folks that have a JF-2, we can work out a super cool deal to get you a lo-fi sampler that works in a nifty fashion.
