So I currently have a MPC 1000 and I’m looking into getting a SP 404 to use it with. I just don’t know which SP to get. I know the og SP uses the same memory card as the MPC so I feel like that would be convenient and also the fx’s on the og are supposedly better. But it seems like the more popular one is the SX, I’ve seen a lot of vids online and they all seem to be using the SX. I mainly want to use it for effects and eventually live sets. For those of you who have a MPC and SP, which SP do you recommend? Thanks for the help.

definitely just get an sx.

the 404 og is for ogs, or for those who specifically want the certain sounds it produces (the compression/ vinyl sim)

the sx is 20x faster, better work flow since you have copy/paste functions, auto trigger record level, you can import and export backup files, PLUS you have a fricking sd card that slides right into your damn computer

and tbh it can put off a very similar vinyl sim sound that the OG has if your crafty enough.

OG has it too. (Cancel+Rec, then knob 3 for sensitivity)
