I came across a composition presented with .. rather interesting acoustic samples. I found out that what was used was some Roland sample thing called "L.A. Composer". These seem like older samples, pre-GOS I'd say. But they sounded very interesting, probably sampled with "in-place" musicians and very personal sounding, not so clinically clear (in a good sense).

I've been searching all over the net but I can't seem to find any specific info in these discs. Does anyone in here know of them, and hopefully can tell me more about them, or re-direct me to any source?
Any opinions from somebody who has been close to them would also be interesting to hear.
