Great Addition to SP1200

What would make a great addition to the SP1200, compliment it and why?(E-mu Emulator iii, Studio 440 or E-mu SP12)

Lives for gear
It depends
You can use the classic combo SP1200 and s950 if you want to create the sound/vibe of 90s hip hop. In that case the SP would be your sequencer but you could also use a MPC and use it as master to control the SP and/or other gear. In that case the SP will take the role of a lofi addon whenever you need it. You can also integrate the lofi sampler into a DAW setup with synth plugins etc. You see it depends on your music style and how you would like to work.
First question IMO is: What role plays the SP in the setup.

peace

One of your options is how I currently have it set up, MPC1000 controlling the SP1200 and I do all my sampling on the SP. I would like to have an additional amount of seconds that would blend good with the quality of the SP to add voices, strings, little sounds for the chorus etc. It could be 12 bit or 16bit. I recently bought an Akai s950 after owning one 22 years ago and the interface felt very archaic and forgot how unintuitive it was. So would like to try something different.

Any examples of how they sound good together?

Good may be subjective there, but my soundcloud is pretty much those two boxes with other things sprinkled in.
