    Got Isla Instruments S2400 before Thanksgiving this thing is built like a tank and works amazing! I paid $909 the preorder price back in june 2019. The price went up to $1499 now & its still worth the price! Don’t miss out on it! Let me mention the creator Brad Holland and the Isla team are amazing and have more integrity by themselves than all those other companies that we all know. If you run into an issues there right there to assist.

    As an owner of both old and new electronic music tools, it is very refreshing to know that there are people in this world who are willing to pour a significant amount of time and energy in to creating a modern classic. The S2400 is easy to use and has a unique sound that is unmatched by any currently available product. Whether you want to create a hip-hop classic, a bangin’ house track, an avant-garde electronic musical piece, or a stream-of-consciousness live recording, the S2400 has you covered. It is packed with possibilities for both workflow and sound design. It is also equipped with a multitude of audio inputs and outputs to accommodate any setup (DUAL PHONO INPUTS!) and works fantastically as either a studio centerpiece or an ancillary tool. It can be used as a sampler, drum machine, digital synthesizer, live recording device, or phono preamp, and it performs all functions with elegant fluidity. The build quality is also FAR superior to any other comparable product on the market. Do yourself a favor and grab an S2400. You won’t be sorry!

    This has been one of my favorite purchases to date for studio equipment. Over the years I’ve moved away from hardware and into the realm of DAWs.
    When learning of the s2400 coming out, I knew it was for me. I had spent much time looking into the new MPCs, even thought about getting a Push 2.
    I can confidently say I made the right choice with Isla Instruments.
    This isn’t your everyday beat machine, it was a labor of love.
    It’s intuitive design, workflow and functionality make it enjoyable to create with.
    The quality is outstanding and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking to purchase!

    The Isla team hit the mark – nothing short of excellence with the S2400. From the machine being built like a tank to the sweet musical tone it produces to the near identical aliasing of the great SP-1200 that inspired it, the S2400 is incredible. I am proud to be an early customer of such an awesome company that is on the cutting edge of musical gear and listening to what the market wants. Huge props to the Isla team, while still in its early days this is a job well done.

    This machine is the best drum machine I’ve ever owned! I preordered it in September of 2019 and just received it a week ago…And my mind is blown!! Well worth the wait!! Brad and the Isla instruments team did an amazing job all around!! I can’t thank them enough for putting the S2400 into existence!!

    I’m still a newbie with the S2400 but overall, I love it and I can’t wait to explore more of it after I finishing writing this review.

    This passion project to reimagine the SP-1200 and bring that machine’s key elements into the modern era has evolved into an exceptional instrument. The S2400 workflow and sonic character are true to its predecessor but the extra abilities afforded it through innovative software design and modern components take it to new levels. It’s inspiring to use, engaging to play and built like brick out house. It has exceeded all my expectations, nearly as much as the Isla Instruments team have. A small group of talented and dedicated people whose attention to detail and responsiveness to their customers’ needs is incredible, putting some much larger companies to shame.

    If you’re considering purchasing one, you really should check out the video manual episodes on the IslaInstruments YouTube channel. The amazingly talented Alex Ball will walk you through all the features and entertain you with examples of just how good this machine can be in the right hands.

    Being such a small company you will need to appreciate that there’s currently a delay between placing your order and your machine being built. I promise you, it’s well worth the wait!

    I’ve been waiting for a sampler like this for a really long time. Most of the old samplers that sound great or have character are failing, skyrocketing in price, and are definitely hard to interface within a modern set up. It’s been difficult to find a sampler that sounds great, has an interface that is intuitive, and inspires me to want to use it. Or if it does it’s so expensive it’s basically difficult to come by for most budgets. The S2400 easily addresses the first two issues and is obviously within reach for the average person. The build quality and attention to detail is truly spectacular, the fact that it nails the ethos of the SP1200 groove and sound is just an extra benefit as far as I’m concerned. This has to be in my top 3 gear purchases of all time. It’s even better than I’d hoped, I’m incredibly impressed.

    The S2400 is such a dope piece of music equipment. It is inspired by a classic OG sampler that we all should know and love but by no means is the S2400 a clone. It is a unique sampler, with lots of modern features, and with its own unique character that sets it apart from any other sampler out there. The beats that are made with always have a real nice punch and the sound it produces can be in the realm of classic and dirty or modern and clean; it’s up to you what you want to make it do. It is a very pleasing sampler to use; the music making process on it is absolutely fun. The S2400 is built like a tank! The build quality is like no music equipment I’ve ever put my hands on. I would dare to say that I feel it is even sturdier and more strongly built than the great and highly regarded OG samplers that are famously known for their excellent build quality. Salute to Isla Instruments for this amazing passion project. The S2400 is already a classic in my book.

    So I have been an MPC 3000 and SP1200 user for many years and had been waiting for some genius to come along and make something that would be close or an advancement and a modern equivalent. I am one fussy guy when it comes to drum machines and samplers.

    I have owned the MPC 3000, SP12, SP1200, ASR10, Emu Emulator II, Emu Emulator III, Akai s900, Akai s1000, S1100, S5000, S3200, Casio FZ1 and the humble Casio Rz1. I know sound coming out of vintage gear. I have tested many.

    This baby aka the s2400 is a modern marvel and such a pleasure to use. Its 12bit mode has the ability to sample in and has the ability to pick between 2 sample inputs (designed on the original s1200 input circuit) and also has the ability to pick if you want it to play back in 12bit mode or 24bit mode as well. It’s pretty wild. It really opens up sample creativity. You can also pick the original pitch (classic mode) to give the added aliasing to sounds when pitched, or turn it off. Pretty nice.
    It has great analog and digital filters, amazing user interface, usb drag and drop!! (mad), plus it’s built like a tank. And on top of that the updates so far have been killer.
    Finally someone did it! They built the modern S1200 but built it 3 times as good with about a zillion times more memory.

    No more lost songs on floppies, no more discontinued parts, no more peeling circuit boards (yes the original 1200 does this with age)….
    This to me feels more like a cross between my old S1200 with the build quality of my MPC 3000 with a dash of ASR10 vibes for good measure..

    Highly recommended…
    What a machine!

    This is a dope machine. I own a MPC 3000, 60II, ASR10, EPS and MV 8000. I wanted a SP 1200, but wasn’t going to pay that ridiculous price for one. After finding out about Isla and that he was going to create a unit inspired by the 1200, I said let me see what he can do. I like what I was seeing and preordered way before the unit was completed. The best $948 spent ! This machine is a beast, classic SP sound with way more features and better playing pads. I hated the pads on the 1200. Thanks Brad you are the man ! No shade toward the 1200 because it is a dope machine as well.

    I got my S2400 last week and have not been able to stop using it. In a word, it’s simply FUN. My sampling roots go back to my EPS16+ in the early 90s, with Art of Noise probably being my biggest influence in making music with samples. The UI is smart and intuitive if you have any experience in old school sampling, and I’ve only had to consult higher sources (i.e. a manual) a few times. It’s gritty and crunchy when set to its classic modes, but can also be clean and pristine, if that’s more your thing. Bottom line is that it inspires me to make music and that’s ultimately the true test for any piece of kit you might have. Even now I am thinking of things I want to do with it as I’m at my office and would rather be creating with my S2400. Thanks to Brad and Mickey and the whole team for making a really fun machine.

    Awesome machine!

    The wait for it to be produced was worth it. Constant updates. Sturdy feel and build like a tank. Also ordered the case. Bulletproof combination.
