So if I want to make a noise with my voice and then use that sample to create a bunch of other notes and play them via keyboard, what would be the best route? Just a Cubase plug-in or something?

I have Cubase LE but I dunno if that has anything like that or not. I was thinking hardware would be the easiest because I've yet to sit down in front of the computer much since I have hardware stuff to play with. The sp-505 can only do an octave so I guess that won't work.

as long as u can record urself and export that sound as a loop in wav or aiff u should be cool. ive used sony sound forge for things like that plenty of time. if u have a board with vocoder capablities i would start experimenting there then jump to cpu with a better understanding.

I have a micron which does have some vocoder capabilities but I can't record my voice onto it really. I dunno if I can do what I'm talking about with my micron though but thanks for the info.

Is sound forge free?

The SP-505 lets you do that, and it can function independant from a PC.

EDIT: However, you are limited to the internal memory, which isn't much. Here's how much time given the sample quality settings:

Standard (44.1KHz): 2 minutes
Long (22.05KHz): 5 minutes
Lo-Fi (11.025KHz): 17 minutes

Also, the tempo of the pitch shifted samples remains the same. Timestretching afterwards is kinda dodgy, and makes it distorted.

For a really inexpensive idea, you could try the old Casio SK series of sampling keyboards. While their sampling time is extremely limited, they can also pitch shift a sample and map it out chromatically accross the keyboard. The tempo changes with the pitch, at least on the SK-1 (which, by the way, only has 1.4 seconds of sampling time and the memory is erased when the power goes off, and it also goes off after a while if you don't use it). The sound quality is really lo-fi, if that interests you. Yamaha also made some of these types of keyboards, too.

but with the 505 it only does one octave of that, which I guess could still be cool. Is there a workaround for that by resampling the new pitches made and then applying the pitch thing again to the highest or lowest pitch?

Maybe octave pedals from EHX or Boss might be the answer. But sometimes pitch shifting in the extreme just makes things go weird quickly.

Any keyboard sampler?
Depends on What leght of sample do you want to use and polyphony limit..
Go lo-fi with Casio SK series, Yamaha VSS series.
Or eg. Korg Microsampler.
Or Ensoniq.
Or some rack sampler like Akai.
