Ok I've been making beats for a year now (myspace.com/00genesis), but it has all been digital due to lack of funds...

So I'm asking all of you knowledgeable people on the STMB to help me merge into the world of analog with my creativity...

What should come first?...

MPC?
Keyboard?
Sampler?
Turntable?

plz help

IMO a mpc, its a all-in-one machine, so, you won't need an extra sampler or sequencer.

and turntable?hmm, depends, you can sample anything from anywhere.

i ain't gonna get into specifics are far as all the ish I use, but the MPC is the centerpiece...on the real though, I think alot of people are sleeping on the SP 606...from the short time I had with it(in store demo) and what I've read on it, it's kind of like the best of both in terms of going from the SP to the PC to mixdown.

If your looking for something cheap and flexible i would recomend the sp505 probably the most slept on of the sp series but has features not present on the others, I grabbed one a couple of weeks ago for around £100 to run with my sp1200.

yeah ive been hoping to save up money for a 606, all i have now is friggin acid pro and soundforge (which isnt bad), but id love a 606.

the only thing that really trips me out are the complaints about the 4-track sequencer. any problems with that, 606 users?

i know this has been gone over thousands of times, but what EXACTLY does the 2500 do that the 2000 or 1000 doesn't?

here's a few straight from AKAI's site:

*Chop–shop– slices a loop into individual samples with automatic pad assignment
*Patched phrase – synchronizes phrase samples to any tempo without changing pitch
*Continuous sample track - records long audio tracks into a sequence
*USB Slave connector x 1, USB MASS STORAGE CLASS support (You need Windows 2000/Me/XP or later version, or MacOS 9.x/10.x or later version.)

prolly more, but I haven't had the chance to play wit it...
