Ok, I'm know I'm gonna catch hell for this ,but I need some advice on a sampler. See here is the deal. I've been making music for years, but I've never sampled anything. I've always made up everything or played it myself. Well, now I wanna try my hand at sampling ,but I'm sort of stuck on what to get. I was thinking mpc 2000xl or 4000. Then again I thought about the software route to. I know, I know. I"ve read all read a lot of the posts though and have yet to read anything real informative. Mostly just dumbasses arguing about whether software is better than harware and vice versa. I'm leaning more towards the akai line for the pads, but anyone with some real input is welcome to speak on it. I'm listening. And please don't turn this into a B I T C H fest about which is more real and real hip hop blah blah blah.
thanks in advance,
