Asr-x Or Mpc?
i dont really need a sequencer cos i use my computer, but is there a better machine for sampling drums etc?
If you sequence with your comp get a rack sampler. Then just get controller. Most likely cheaper more non sequencing features.
Get an EPS 16 keyboard. An emax would be cool to.
if you're just sampling then the ASRX will do fine or the SP12 turbo if you want some grit.
