    well the 202 from roland is only a phrase sampler. this means that its good only for sampling vocal stabs or small portions of tracks.
    the 808 is a kick *** unit. good for a dj who likes producing remixes live
    4 track recorder
    250 mb zip
    loads of effects. and u can hook it upto the comp
    its like a little studio in a box !

    Ok im also plannin on buying some of the stuff ur talkin about. ive got the roland dj 2000 mixer it really kicks *** !

    ok ill give u a list of stuff to buy

    Roland dj 2000 mixer
    roland mc 505 groove box (better controls than 307)
    roland sp 808 groovesampler
    roland jp 8000 analogue synth

    get ur choice of cdplayers id suggest tascam cd 302.

    the 505 and 808 have immense controls of dynamics of sound. the above setup would make a kick *** live setup and would equally well as a production setup.
    u can connect any instrument that is midid compatible to ur setup. u can control all those things u ask about on all three (505,808,8000)
    i wuldnt sugges the kaoss pad. it isnt as good as the rolands effects. u can connect the 808 to a computer with any midi software.
    the above setup can expand with any midi compatible gear. u wont have any trouble with it. the limitations will only be those u set for urself ! u can really create some wild *** stuff with the above setup.
    the virus is also a good piece. u might wanna play with it before u decide.

    is there anything else ud like to know ?

    Skip the groovesampler. What you want is the Yamaha SU700.
    Its like a performance oriented MPC, with tons of effects&filters.

    I've also heard the MC307 is aimed directly at DJs instead of the 505. But i dont know ANY true DJ that uses "groove" stuff live.
    Use your third eye (not leg).

    Yes I am not surprised by what Sighandnod is saying, because I realy dig the SU700 as well. A good realtime/live machine with sampling is the Electribe "S", if you expand it to 64MB.

    KORG Electribe S


    Yamaha SU700



    NOW dont get me wrong.. this is good for realtime stuff, but if you are a studio guy, go for a Yamaha 4000 or for an EMU (any you can afford), they are wonderfully stable, but not as good for "stage" performance

    Ahh by the way... with those machines above, you do NOT need a computer, because their built-in sequencer is quite good, yuou can even trigger notes on external MIDI devices. Just so you know

    good luck

    by the way.. I think you are believing that a DJ who has synthesizers and drumboxes on stage are not composing.. but there is NO difference, they ARE composing music, and preparing their patterns BEFORE they go on stage.. It is live music, not mixing as you imagine it. Just wanted to make something clear.


    If you get any of these models, expand them to 64MB, it is very important. They come with 4MB or something ridiculous.

    Yes the electibe and the yamaha are good machines too. now if only jiten could tell us if he intends to use them on stage or in a studio we could chalk up a list of stuff to get.
    im a "live" kinda person for me the 808 would work better. just depends on what u need and how u need it

    Which one for me?

    Ok, I' m a little confused as to which one is really the best one for the price. Right now I have a dual Cd Player and a Gemini 3 channel mixer. I Play mainly Trance music. Which one for under 750 would be the best? Also I can just add this to my set and come up with some cool effect correct? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you guys.
    And what about the Pioneer EFX-500?
