my newest addition to my lil setup :D, at first i had been planning on getting me a microkorg but i thought about it a sec and realized i wouldnt play with it that much anyways so i found this by very very very good luck and went to pick it up last saturday...

heres a video clip i made about it, its a very simple beat but i just felt the urge to do the video for some reason

thanks! did you ever get your 2kxl fixed? that sp-12 looks real nice and sounds nice. that bassline rumbles, sounds dope! i'm guessin that your transition from a 2kxl to an sp wasn't to hard? it's fun choppin using the faders but can be tedious, i've only messed with a 1200... once you have all the buttons and menus down your pretty much set.. a different routine from your 2kxl, not to mention the sample time that you have... nice beat... is gonna be your set now? or you are still planning to get an mpc? peace..

Damn, Dee...I envy. I've always wanted an SP12. Congratulations on the beat and the purchase.

And as for "Spooky's" studio....it's like most other statements he makes....false.

yeah man i got the mpc fixed alright, only becuase this one dude in some local boards tipped off that his mpc had been fucked up after installing the 8-out, there was one resistor(or what it is called) burned, so i sent the mp back to the repairs-shop and tipped off that they just needed to change the one resistor, i got a free new 8-out from the German webstore and installed it...

the transition wasnt too hard but at first i didnt really have a clue how to use it, but now i have to say that i learned to use the sp quicker than the mpc (eventhough that was quickly learned too)... thanks man ! well at first i thought that id buy this one for just the drums but i think im going to use this one as a stand alone for some beats (very simple ones obviously) and then midi this with the mpc and do the drums with the sp (and maybe some additional melodies/other lil ish)... im quessing that setting up the sp with mp via midi isnt going to be that hard cause this thing is pretty straightforward & so simple (it might be better for me to just knock on wood though ) haha

thanks man !!! your welcome to come and try it anytime youre around my neighbourhood :D... these things are so to say rare even in the US&UK and think of Finland for that matter, i was lucky cause i logged into this one gear selling site and saw the ad, the ad had been added only few hours before i logged in...

i paid 500€ for this which is the maximum price for this sp-12 model ive heard but oh well its the only money i can spend in looooooooong time but hopefully the sp wont break down on me

This is what i t looks like right now...sold my old Microkorg and Korg DW-6000 (for more than I bought it for) and copped a Novation Xio49...decent synthesizer, but mainly bought it because it also has a built-in soundcard, so I can plug stuff in to it and record to the computer..
Cheap ass out of tune electric guitar and bass...
Old trusty Korg ESX-1 and Zoom Sampletrak that I haven't used in ages...
And of course, the flute.

I got it like 5 years ago or so, and never really did make much with it in terms of beats because I thought it was complicated or something, but I think I'm going to play around with it again soon..
One great thing about it is the effects though, especially considering the price of it..22 effects or something, and you can basically use it to run sound from something else through it just to apply the effects.

What really sucks about it is that it uses SmartMedia cards and can't handle bigger cards than 16 MB - they were fucking impossible to find 5 years ago when I got it (finally found one that was bundled with a camera in a store that let me buy just the card, at a ridiculous price of course). Seems like you can get them on ebay these days though, but of course at the price of a 4GB card of a modern standard <_<

This is when I was moving into my new apartment. Moving record collections suck. I was about a third of the way through it. I still got 4 moving boxes of vinyl in the corner of my living room that I got to organize.

Not in these pictures are my MPC and Computer.

This is slightly off-topic but I was impressed with marco polo's setup(&that he recorded most of Port Authority in there,an LP which sounded pretty fkn seamless!),I guess he'll buy a new MPc when it comes out with a built-in ashtray&starbux coffe holder!

They're pretty damn loud. Even only at about 2.5 on the volume they make any books or records near them on the table or on them fall off onto the floor.
