Is it good, Like for sampling. cause I think it would be sick to go along with an sp404sx so I can do stuff on the fly :)

Hows the quality? I hear it has a preamp built in which is dope :)

i use it all the time. the portability, once again, is what sold me...
the quality obviously isn't the best, but who's really sampling off of turntables for the sound quality?
it's not noticeable in the context of a finished beat...
99% of your audience won't notice the slight diminish in sound quality, it's not like the diff between a HD 1080p video and a 240p video on YouTube. it works fine for what it's supposed to do, and the functionality easily outweighs the issues with sound quality (which imo don't really even exist).

nice try, but the Madlib himself even samples off of shoddy equipment when needed...

he made half of those MV beats on a Fisher Price turntable that has much lower sound quality than the PT-01.
i understand purists are gonna argue against what i said, but that's the 1% of people i was referring to.

we all can't afford Technics and MPC's...the whole point of hip-hop production is to use what you have or can reasonably get, not shell out thousands of dollars to get a slightly higher frequency response on a sample you're just going to mangle up and flip anyway...makes no sense to do that unless you are an audiophile that just listens to the vinyl, which isn't what this thread's about.

it was a joke on the way you worded what i quoted (vinyl being such an accurate analog reproduction of the music and all), pt01 can work fine for sampling or listening, i had one for a bit and used it to sample (didn't have a turntable with a pitch fader before that), and i do have a fisher price joint now, no outs, just use it as a portable, do what you please

hell yeah. i hear they're actually pretty decent for what they're worth, is that true? i guess there's a reason for so many dope producers and collectors using it for when they go dig...but i imagine it's roughly the same as the PT-01.

its alright, mine plays a little wonky (maybe they all do to an extent?) and the needle can be a bit jumpy and skip forward little bits at a time depending on the record i'm playing (i think the textures in the grooves literally bounces the needle right out, does it especially with hip hop records), so i only really use it to listen to shit when i'm out diggin and there isn't a turntable available, mine isn't the battery powered one either so thats kind of a bummer, if you find one for cheap in a thrift shop or whatever i would definitely grab it, don't know about hoppin on ebay and spending 20-40+ on one though

damn, that sounds rough haha. my PT-01 doesn't have those issues, fortunately--and it's battery-powered so it makes for an excellent digging companion. it even plays those shellac 78's if i'm lucky enough to find 'em...haven't found any ones decent enough to cop, but as far as sampling goes it can be pretty fun speeding up a record to ridiculous speeds sometimes haha.

i did not like the sound of the pt01, i'm rocking a stanton t62 which i paid 200 for and it sounds a hell of a lot better, worth the extra hundred if your turntable is touching every beat.

The PT-01 makes for an excellent digging tool. The investment in it saves a multitude over when ripping through the dollar bins.
For sampling, I like the little bit of saturation it adds with the 'tone' dial.
It pretty much does everything I need except for scratching, need a seperate table for that.

you can still scratch on it...just not very well.
but i've made beats feeding it live into my sampler while switching patterns on it, cutting in acapella vocals and what-not into my mix as it was playing. so to each his own i guess.
