Hello everyone, especially the owners of hybrid samplers.

I don't know if this is the right place to post, but I'll give it a go.

I am working on the University project about software/hardware samplers, like Maschine, Spark, MPC Renaissance. Would be thankful to everyone who could share their experience and thoughts. If you could just answer these couple questions below:

1) Your age
2) Which hybrid sampler do you use/ have used before?
3) What made you buy it?
4) What are you using it for? (music production, live performance, etc.; also please specify the music genre)
5) How it affects your workflow?
6) List few pros and cons.
7) Hardware only vs. Hybrid? Your thoughts.

Thanks in advance to everyone who will participate in this.

Best regards and have a good day.
