Re: Small sampler. MPX8?

The best budget sampler I've ever used is the Roland SP-505. You can sample, edit, effect, sequence. The big plus is that it's not a beasty table top unit; only about the size of a text book. The only downside is finding a 128mb smartmedia card, but if you're savvy enough you can generally find one ...

Then I hit the forums, and respectively hit myself. I read dozens of forums discussing the mythic IISDMC, but no dice...
