There are microphone and line inputs on the rear panel for sampling from electronic sources, as well as a microphone on the front panel. Once a sound is sampled, you can change its amplitude envelope (attack, decay, sustain, release) to one of 13 preset envelopes, as well as looping the sample. The sampler is voice- or sound-activated, so it won't try to sample until it hears an input on the mic or line input."
