The SP-202 is a very nice sampler for the money. I have not really used any other samplers, but compared to the specs of the SU-10 the SP-202 can kick its ass. Smart Media cards are getting much cheaper, I think I have heard of them for about $30 for a 4MB card. The polyphony does get to be a bit of a problem sometimes but if you can live with it then this sampler is ace. The ring mod is very nice and can be applied to external stuff like your voice in realtime as you talk through the mic or an instrument (There is a ring mod guitar on The Downward Spiral by NIN for an example). The filters are nice in my opinion. I don't know why everyone is bitching about getting samples in right, just read the manual...if you know the BPM you can get it in fine. If you don't it just takes a few trys. Big Hint: Use Hammerhead to make loops to put in the 202!

Sounds excellent, very easy to use. Don't expect full-featured professional sampling, it's worth your money if you like to work quick. Very versatile, runs on batteries! Intelligent RAM Expansion (via Smart Media Cards). Big fun to work with - believe me, you'll like it from the first second.

This is an absoultely magnificent peice of machinery. The most practical sampler on the market. It has many great features like the time stretch (lets you alter the b.p.m. without altering the pitch). As well as quck-and-easy editing capabilities (start and stop on one button). It also has an auto-sampling function that lets you automatically start sampling as soon as the CD starts. If you are a DJ that needs a few samples really good in his act THIS IS THE SAMPLER FOR THAT. The only thing I do not like is the max polyphony is 4 but only 2 with an effect on. But if you are just using it to play samples in your act (as opposed to composing with it) then it is indeed the best.

Yo, the world is a much better place with the "Dr.Sample" SP202 in hand. And that's the phat SH@#! The Sp202 is compact and is also battery operated. Now I can take my samples anywhere and work on new tracks-- on the train, bus or deep in the country or what we call the stix...The only thing I need now is a carrying case for the SP202 and the Mb Smart cards. If you are deciding...definitly go for it, and another pointer...GET THE 4Mb SMARTCARD for the best sampling time...its a splurge, but its worth every penny and you'll thank the Pezmaster. Happy sampling and be on the look out for the "ignorant scratch stylist" dj pez...

Nice nice nice sampler.... kicks the SU10's ass... very simple to use but i wish it had a longer review. Polyphony is a little limited but if u already have a big sampler u can go from SP202 with neat real time effects over to your digital monster... but i still wish u could sample from 3 pads to one pad god damnit! why dont samplers do that??? The smart media cards r frikking expensive though... i hate that... and i wish u could make MIDI dumps with it but for 300 bux IT KIX ASS!
