I owned an Ensoniq ASRX with all the upgrades for several years. It was my first piece of real equipment. As I expanded my studio, I ended up using the big sampler less and less and my sampling needs went down. After I sold my ASRX I bought an SP202. It appealed to me because of it's low, low price and it's simplicity. After about 2 months, I sold it because I discovered the Zoom St224, which is the same price as the SP202 but worth about twice as much! I've only had it for a day and I know the ST224 works better, has better features, and is easier to use. The Zoom ST224 has a beat match function, TONS of effects, resampling capability(!), and you can load different banks of sounds so that you're not limitted to the sp202's maximum 4 banks, with only 2 banks allowed on a smartcard. Plus, the Zoom accepts 16 mb smartmedia cards so you can store 4 times as much on a single card. If you're looking for a budget sampler, DON'T BUY THE SP202, BUY THE ZOOM ST224. You'll get much better FX, much better functions, and overall, a MUCH BETTER SAMPLER! check out ebay... they sell for $175 or less.

Bottom Line this thing rulez. All you jackasses who complain that you can't match beats with it and other shit didn't know what you were buying. If you want to do crazy, technical stuff, get a real sampler that is meant to do that like a E-mu E4. This thing was intended to be quick and shitty (in a good way) and that's exactly what it is. I love this thing for lo-fi but wouldn't produce a whole record with it which is what it sounds like some people are trying to do. It's just crazy to me how many people buy things and expect things to act differently than they are intended. If you want something to act like a $4000 sampler, than buy one of those, if you want something to act like a $200 lo-fi, scratch pad/sfx triggering thingy, get the SP202. It rulez and I laugh at all you clowns that whine because it doesn't do what an E4 Platinum does, and you thought it would. Of course it doesn't you cack!!!

I've had the SP-202 for a couple of months: if you want a sampler for the purpose of making beats, don't buy this model (get the SP-303). However, if you want a sampler for the purpose of trigger sounds at live performances (like I do), this is perfect. The only people who give this sampler a bad rap are those you bought this thing for making beats, which it doesn't do very well in today's standards. Know what to buy before you buy it. This sampler has beat making limitations, but if you are not using it for that purpose, then save some cash and buy it!
