Getting an SP-1200. What to expect...

Post by Sorcerio » Sat Dec 16, 2006 3:55 pm

I'm really exceited! I recently made a deal to get an SP-1200! I know and love the sonic magic it imparts to its samples. But I'm wondering what to expect operation-wise. I have an Akai S-950. And I really don't use it as much as I would like to. The main reason is because the interface is so tedious to use. But I saw a couple of clips on youtube with users working the SP-1200 with such ease and appearant enjoyment. I just wonder what you might have to say about it. Is it a joy to use? Will I be addicted to it all the while it is stimulating my creativity? Am I hoping too much? Please tell me your experiences.

I've never usedd one, but always wanted one. I'd say the sound is worth the work. I'm gonna check out them videos on you tube.

If you're all about getting that "sound" from the SP-1200 then it's worth it. It's limited as h**l in comparison to the MPC's but it's fun to use. For the most part, I sequence with the MPC 2000XL and MIDI the SP-1200 for drums. It's only good for that.

Sorry about this scum taking your money. Hopefully your credit card company will understand.

No it's still time for it. I still want to get one. And it will be my next purchase. Go on, you have an SP-12?


Thanks for the sympathies BTW... But I have already filed multiple reports with mine and his State Attorney General, my local Police Department, and even the FBI Internet Fraud division. Hopefully they will nab this asshole.

Really I should have been more careful. Some advice, don't ignore even the smallest of warning signs. If there seems to be a glitch in the buying process at all, take heed and be extra cautious. Never use Western Union even if they say that they have another buyer wating and it's first come first served. There are always other deals to be had that are legit.
