I am looking to buy a keyboard sampler in order to compliment the MPC I'm already using to produce hip-hop, and have narrowed it down to either the Casio FZ-1 or the Akai X7000. Both are available to me for under 100 Euro.
I would like to know:
Which one sounds better? (For reference I love the sound of the MPC and am looking for a dirty sound)
Would I be able to record directly from a turntable and then sample that recording without having to use the disk drives on both?
Does the Akai X7000 have a synthesizer as well?
Which one you would recommend in general?
Thanks, and feel free to ask any questions.
