Latency when accessing Slices and Layers


I think about buying a Rample to enhance my currently Sample-Free setup with some Samples I can trigger via MIDI from a Sequencer (OT, Syntakt, later maybe Hapax). Most of what I would like to do is simple triggering Samples ever 4th or 8th note, but: I love to have changing HiHat sounds per hit (16th at around 138 bpm). I would like to use the layers and slices to be able to fit a lot of single shots with closed hihats into one voice, that I could trigger randomly per step (Random LFO for the Slice-Startpoint-CC).
Is the Rample able to do that? 16th notes at 138bpm is around one trigger ever 10th of a second. I am a bit worried if this is a good idea, when the samples are streamed from SD every hit.

Anyone has tried that and knows some facts here?

Thanks, Jens

So you want to modulate Layer and Slice at the same time with as little latency as possible?
I know I modulate Layers (selection via MIDI CC and presets Random or Cyclic) and haven’t noticed anything, but I tend to program my sequences ‘sloppy’ intentionally.

Although latency is also dependent on other factors (cables, MIDI Thru, hubs, routers, DIN or USB, etc), I think it would depend on your tolerance and style of music. For technical data, you can contact Squarp directly at

I’d run a test, but my Rample is unavailable right now. :frowning:
(and I’m jonesin…)
