The BOSS SP-303 Dr. Sample offers DJs and musicians a compact, portable phrase sampler with CD-quality sound, 8-note polyphony, 26 onboard effects and a realtime pattern sequencer. Definitely a step up from the SP-202, with full 44.1 kHz sampling, double the polyphony and much greater sampling memory and effects processing, but still just as compact and easy to use.
Use the SP-303 to sample sounds and loops or grooves (the highest sample time is about 200 min. with a 64MB SmartMedia Card and a sample rate of 11 khz). Then trigger up to 8 mono samples at once. Create songs from your loops and phrases (up to 99 measures). There are 26 effects like reverb, flanger, delay Voice Transformer, distortion, Slicer, Isolator, Lo-Fi, and Vinyl Simulator plus filter Cutoff and Resonance. The Resample feature allows you to make new samples of your sounds with the effects you've applied.
The SP-303 is an inexpensive alternative to more expensive samplers in a compact package perfectly suited for DJs and live on-stage performers. Plenty of quality specs without too many bells & whistles to get you bogged down.
This is the classic and legendary BOSS SP-303 Dr. Sample used by everyone from J Dilla to Radiohead. It's had minimal use, smoke free and comes with a manual professionally printed and bound at Kinkos/FedExOffice. Very clean and completely functional. If you looks hard there might be some light cosmetic surface scratches on the plastic if you look real hard but that's it. Comes with a 64MB SmartMedia card.
