Hello
ive been producing for about a a couple of months now with just reason 5 and a korg microkey im thinking of getting some other equipment like a sampler
The most ive been hearing about is the SR and the MPC

what does everyone thing of the mpc and sr which would be the best?

it's all subjective. There is a swing you can get inside of an MPC that you can't get anywhere else. I mean ableton live has its set of swing groves that emulate swing but it will never have the swing youc an get in your mpc. To be honest I wouldn't get a lot of hardware if you are on a budget. Conserve your money and understand you style before anything. Don't go out a purchace things because of what you hear from other people.

Yeah, it looks intriguing. The funny thing is though, the MVs did all that stuff, years ago. Still cool none-the-less.

THIS. NEVER buy a piece of gear you dont need. The moment you do, you'll find you'll need something else, and so on and so forth until you have to sell it all off because you've become a gear junkie.
