SP-303 vs MPC 500
Posted 17 November 2009 - 02:34 PM
I've settled on looking at these two machines because they're small and reasonably priced, especially used. An MPC 2000 is obviously too big. Even the Microsampler which looks pretty dope is too big (20 inches long. won't fit in my backpack. batteries?).
I'm leaning toward the 500 since it takes batteries and the 303 doesn't. Plus, I used to have a 2000XL, so it won't be so much of a learning curve. I have heard things about the 303 though that make me wonder. Like it has a very simple workflow.
Any wisdom greatly appreciated, especially if someone can outline the workflow differences between the two. Also, any other machines that may suit my purposes?

There's also another one by Akai called the XR20 but i dont know anything about that one so cant really give an opinion on it, still worth looking into i guess

The SX I believe has the ability to copy patterns(the 404 does, too, with a little trick), and uses SD cards for storage.
I believe the SX also relies only on external memory, it doesn't have any internal space.
Ask the guys on SP-Forums.com, they know plenty about it.

Also, the Korg Microsampler is a new keyboard based portable sampler worth checking out.
