Lives for gear

My take on the SP-16 after a couple of years is this: It isn't the best as your one and only sampler. Sample management is very limited and only 16 sounds without polyphony for chords or overlapping sample playback is also very limited. BUT it is a great complement to another sampler like an older MPC because the SP-16 has modern wav file compatibility, reatime stretching, per step parameters, filter box on the output. It makes a great inspirational addition, maybe not the center of your setup.
