No, this is a CV/GATE controlled device with no persistent memory.  So 
you have to load your sample(s) into it each time you turn the power 
off.  This is done by playing the audio into it at the same time as 
sending a gate signal to start/stop recording.

This is easily accomplished with a computer based sequencer/recorder ...
- to 'save' a sample, output a MIDI note to the playback gate and record 
the audio from the output
- to 'load' a sample, output the same MIDI note to the record gate and 
play back the audio into the input

There's also the option of using external flash memory which saves with 
the power off.  The module will allow direct access to the dsPIC SPI and 
I2C pins so easy enough to add some external serial memory.  I probably 
won't do this myself though.
