so the shift button and the left fader died on my mpc 2000xl, apparently it could take 8 weeks for all the parts and repairs (I live in Australia). I think i'll go mad if I don't have something to bash my fingers upon unitl then. I'm not really into using computers to make music , I have some standard programs like peak and cool edit pro.I've been looking at sp 303's and sp 404's and it looks like i could pick either up for roughly the same price on ebay, is it worth buying one of these and which one is better? i suppose once my mpc was fixed i could still have some use for it too. I know the 404 probably has some more memory or something but it seems like most peole would opt for the 303? any suggestions?
