I love this thing. It doesnt have much in the way of FX so I just use external FX. No sweat. I have several other more capable samplers, but I love the simplicity of the SP-202 and the fact that it can run on batteries. I use rechargeable ones so thats no problem either. Its great to take this puppy out into the "world" and get some really strange samples. Its small and portable and that makes it all possible. AND it can store samples on SmartMedia disks which is really cool.

Someone once told me that it's not what you use, but how you use it.

Then there's the SP-202. You'll find that it's easy to use, but loses its flavor after one hour. Effects are limited to two filters, delay, time stretch, pitch bend and ring mod.

I haven't even bothered to try and connect it to any midi devices since it only has one midi in port.

I find it useful for only real-time recording or live performance, but in either case, the sample playback quality is sub-par.

It can also be useful because it's rather portable...if you like spending money on 6 AA batteries. Yes, it runs on batteries.

But, whatever samples that I'd snag from where ever or whomever through the SP-202 would eventually end up on my PC.

However, if you remove the aforementioned AA batteries from the unit, it's buh-bye samples (until you find the appropiate power adaptor which is not included).

If you do buy this sampler, use for the purpose of learning to use samples in the structure of your music or as a portable sampling device for capturing ambient sounds.

All-in-all: You're better off just bleching into your old Casio keyboard that you got when you were 10 years old and pushing the demo button.

Not a review, but a helpful tip... the memory cards (2MB or 4MB) used are 5v, not the 3v commonly seen. Buy them for $10-15 from photography stores online!

Killer machine!! Gets the job done for me very nicely without any hassles. Sure it has limits as all devices do, but you work within the limits and create magic. This puppy cooks!!! Get one!!

This thing is fun. Its a tall little box with buttons that light up. you can get it used for 200 bucks. you can carrie it around! Its really easy to use. I am going to get another one. people that dis on this are comparing it to samplers that are 1200$. they need to check themselfs. with the right mind you can really use this machine. if you suck and you think its hard to edit because your weak, I have 2 words 'trial and error'. it works well with midi because the pads light up and you know where they are.

I think its a work of art. a classic. for 200 bucks damn. in 5 years every body will use 4 of these, becuase youl be able to get them for 100 bucks. cheap equipment is what electronic music was founded on.
