Sampler Specifications

Maximum Polyphony
Polyphony is the property of musical instruments that details how many notes can be played simultaneously.
64 voices
Power Supply
The power source for the controller.
USB Bus Powered
Data Format
Data format refers to the type of file that the unit saves onto the internal or external memory. In the case of samplers, you're likely to see file formats such as WAV, AIFF, MP3, etc.
AIFF
MP3
WAV
Patterns
Patterns are sequences of samples that can be looped and recorded onto internal or external memory.

Effects
Effects are digital algorithms that affect audio in a vast variety of ways. Some very common effects are Equalization, Compression, Filters (High-Pass, Low-Pass, Band-Pass, Notch, etc.), Reverb & Delay. You'll often find the initialism "DSP," in conjunction with the Effects specification. DSP stands for Digital Signal Processing.

There are several different, but similar types of effects such as dynamic, time-based, modulation and filters. Dynamic effects are for altering the amplitude (the volume of the sound) of audio fed through them. Time-based effects are, well, just that. They alter audio in the time domain by splitting and capturing a selected piece of audio in a buffer and then replaying it slightly out of time with the original to create natural reverberation and/or echoing effects.

Modulation effects combine multiple audio signals to create new sounds with sometimes rather unusual tonal properties, as is the case with Flangers, Tremolo and Phasers. Filters alter the frequency content of any audio going through them by boosting or cutting specific frequencies or frequency regions. In the case of equalizers, you may boost or cut anywhere within the audible frequency spectrum of 20Hz to 20kHz and will notice the difference almost immediately.
Band-Pass Filter
High-Pass Filter
Low-Pass Filter
Pads
Pads refers to the number of tangible pads that the unit has on it through which users can play samples and patterns.
16
Display
Display: the screen through which the unit transmits information to you, the user.
LCD
Onboard Mic
A microphone that's built-in to the unit that may eliminate the need for an external microphone and/or mic preamp.
No
Jacks/Connectors
Details about the quantity and type of inputs and outputs (I/O) on the unit. With samplers and most pro audio gear, for that matter, you'll find initialisms and measurements like XLR, 1/4", 1/8", 3.5mm, TRS, TS, MIDI, RCA and USB among others. Knowing exactly what each of those are isn't terribly important; at least, not as important as making sure your gear matches up with each other.
