I've got my sp from a pawn shop for 100 bucks about 2 years ago. Let me tell you, this thing has endless uses, I've sampled from tv with that thing, used it with turntable loops and it sunded just like a technics itself. This little sampler is the coolest thing I bought for my studio, where I use mc505, RM1x, sp808, sp202 and my PC for editing and rebirth. It rocks let me tell you, get it. Wanna check the sounds I've made, go visit

Good site, by the way, thanks for the info.

This Machine belongs in the "easy sampler" hall of fame. Dont expect miracles, but do expect excellence in simplicity.

Amazing small piece of gear. I just filled my 10th 4mb smartmedia card, so now I have quite an arsenal of samples to whip out on 2 SP202's. I love em cuz they are simple and do what theyz supposed to.

I dont understand why people post reviews before they either get a chance to spend some time working with the sampler. or decide that it cant do what they wanted and slam it. if you want a dope all in one box, with a dazzling array of effects and mad midi ins and outs etc. buy an mpc. The sp 202 was designed as a small, portable, sampler that runs on batteries, able to give the live dj an effects, loop setup and the producer a portable scratchpad studio. it performs both of these intended tasks admirably. the poly. is 4 voices, guess what? a drummer has 2 feet and 2 hands=4! people who complain about sample time and bank access are full of it. Just because this unit has limitations (what do you expect for 100 bucks?) doesnt mean its weak. the patter sequencer sucks, so what do it realtime. this box is intended to be done by ear, not with some step time sequencer. people used to doing sample editing/looping of their computer will find it frustrtating at first, but the learning curve is fast, and you get the swing of it easily. there are ways to get around problems like, no re-sampling, polyphony cutting down if you add effects etc. add a mini-disc recorder (portable, of course) and resampling with effects w/ no polyphony loss. run a bass drum sampler through a filter, pitch it, send it to the md and then re-sample it from there, viola! i bought it as a scratchpad studio, to use with my MD. my alesis drum machine and a small mixer i built in a weekend and its awesome. i can take it on the bus, the subway anywhere. sample any sound i want and be making a beat right away. anyone who says they cant make a beat that sounds dope on this is just someone who is either too lazy to work with it, or one of those system specifications kinda people who dont want to do anything else. anyone ever heard of a portable mpc? NO. so why do all the reviews sound like people want a portable mpc? the boss is great for what i just said, portable project studio, go anywhere.

or dj sampler/effects setup.
