What is Round Robin? This is a function of some samplers where you can alternate between a number of different samples when a drum sound is triggered. I think this a good way to help capture the movement and feel of analog drum machines.

16 bit MPC users: All the samples in this product are 24 bit. You will need to convert them to 16 bit to use them in your MPC. This can be done using an audio batch converter.
