However they differ from the motif and fantom in that they are not "romplers" the motif and fantom have loads of samples loaded into thier memory and use a differant form of synthesis to create thier sounds......they are called romplers because essentially the sounds are derived from the samples on the "rom".
Generally speaking, most producers have at least one rompler for alot of thier bread and butter sounds; that is because it comes with loads of sounds that cover all areas.
Romplers are digital, their synth engine is somewhat similar to a sampler, but instead of the user adding samples, the rom already has special samples loaded on it.

  Rompler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Rompler is a nickname for an electronic musical instrument that specializes in the playback of sampless stored in ROM chips.
The term rompler is a portmanteau of the terms ROM and sampler.
Because the rompler moniker betrays the fact that an instrument uses sample playback technology but lacks the ability to create samples, the term is never used in the marketing of electronic instruments thusly designed.

 Rompler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rompler is a nickname for an electronic musical instrument that specializes in the playback of samples stored in ROM chips.
This is in contrast to samplers, which let the user record samples as well as play them back, and PCM-based synthesizers, which play back samples but have the ability to modify sounds through synthesis technologies such as filters and LFOs.
Because romplers lack components necessary for sampling (a preamp, an A/D converter, RAM, and a media drive or slot), the chief advantage of romplers over samplers is cost.

Alesis QS Composite Synthesis may be most related to M1's ai synthesis, just because it's a PCM synth with non-resonant filters.
All Alesis romplers uses QS Composite Synthesis from their first version QUADRASYNTH to the newest QS6.2.
But it may be one of the first attempt that it's a rare resonant rompler with good PCM ROM.

MiracleBeats marks Swedish sample developer PowerFX’s first foray into the presumably lucrative ROMpler market, offering over 5000 drum sounds in a purpose-built interface that allows for the imposition of a massive collection of MIDI grooves on them.
If, however, you’d like to be able to properly edit those grooves or radically alter those sounds on an individual basis, you’ll definitely be wanting to try the demo first.

 Grooves Magazine - Gear Review: Ethnic ROMpler Roundup   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Though there have been many specialty soft synths that lock in on one specific task and do it well, musicians wishing to get their "world music" groove on have up until recently been mostly left out in the cold.
Sure, all manner of pianos, organs, pseudo-guitars, and vintage keyboards have been more or less accurately emulated, but those desiring not-so-Western sounds pretty much had to fend for themselves, hire a few oud players for personal sampling sessions, and hope for the best.
Now, stepping up to the challenge are Sound Burst, Swar Systems, and Dash Signature with three fairly affordable specialty VSTi ROMplers aimed squarely at filling this void.

I think the ROMpler market is totally different from the big memory specific soundset one.

A sampler makes it unnecessary for you to buy a new synth when you need more sounds than what a Rompler has to offer.
You can simply get a couple of new CD-ROMs that are dedicated to the types of sounds you're looking which cost substantially less than another closed system Rompler with a limited selection of stock sounds.

 Sonikmatter > Freeze and ROM-plers and RAM
Oct 7 2003, 08:15 AM While the freeze function creates an audio track so the ROMpler is not actually playing when you play your track back, the ROMpler is still open with a sound loaded up, and therefore it still eats up the RAM needed to hold that sound in memory.
My comment above about Freeze making use of RAM is simply as a buffer, during the actual Freeze process....and a small amount of RAM as a playback buffer for the frozen audio track.

 MusicPlayer Forums: couple questions on the korg dw-8000
If your definition of rompler is that of a sampler with it's samples in ROM, the DW-8000 does not quite meet this definition.
It is billed (on the cover of the owner's manual) as a programmable digital waveform synthesizer.
I think the first ROMpler would be the PPG Wave or some Voyetra thing, although even those aren't really considered ROMplers.

The rompler basically needs around 0.5MB or more memory to itself to run effectively and any slow disk drives will struggle with the streaming.
This ranges from a straight stereo feed from the Rompler to a whole get 14 channels to mix to your heart's desire including all sorts of room...
The only other thing I did to this was to add a little velocity and timing variation within the Rompler to get a more human feel, then bounced it down in the box...

 Drum machine Information
A drum machine is an electronic musical instrument designed to imitate the sound of drums and/or other percussion instruments.
Most modern drum machines are sequencers with a sample playback (rompler) or synthesizer component that specializes in the reproduction of drum timbres as well as the sound of other traditional percussion instruments.
Though features vary from model to model, many modern drum machines can also produce unique sounds (though usually percussive in nature), and allow the user to compose unique drum beats.

It doesn't have the sparkle and shiny sound of modern romplers like the Motif ES or Fantom X, but it's got an architecture that puts pretty much anything modern to shame.
It's a rompler, with potential unlike any other rompler I've used, so it's definately a special and very unique synth.
Yup, a must have for ambient, soundscape, experimental, spacemusic, etc. Evolving sounds with incredible movement that rivals Korg Wavestations and Waldorf Microwaves, and a heck of a lot easier to program than the FS1R and K5000 (which are both very synthetic sounding and too much hassle for me).

The result of playing around with the noise osc and comb filter.
The idea was to create an airy or breathy sound that falls somewhere between pitched and unpitched noise, like the 'air' artifacts in a rompler sound.
I found that for this type of sound, the noise oscs and comb filter don't have to track the keyboard 100% to get the desired effect.

A new twist on the software sampler is the idea of the "Rompler" which is a sampler-like interface but with a preset library (read-only sampler hence Rompler).
Pretty cool and there are tons of the buggers arriving all the time.
If the Rompler is more loop based then they use Intakt instead which includes all sorts of loop wrnagling features.

One of the most recent pieces to leave my studio was a rompler that I thoroughly enjoyed, but so many of its features were redundant that it became more hassle than it was worth.
And now, thanks to Luxonix, I've found the answer to the rompler functions I found myself missing.
With two indespensible plugins that look, sound, behave, and feel like true PCM romplers, all the while keeping cpu usage to a minimum and sound quality at a maximum, it's impossible to imagine that Luxonix will go unnoticed in the music world.
