Gemini DS-1224

Year released: 

Just Blaze: "Gemini then came out with a 24-second sampler. How it worked was, you had one bank that could hold 12 seconds and then you had three other banks that could hold four seconds each. Each sample had its own pitch control, so I could sample a record and play it back real fast meaning I could put the sample in at a faster rate and then slow it down.Now I could take what would normally be a 10-second sample and sample it in four seconds by speeding the record up and then slowing the sample down. That's a technique we all used—that technique was what the core of the Blueprint was."
