    you can get almost any sampler ever made for that money. 2nd hand. dont know if there are mpcs for that price but you should be able to get both an e-mu and and an akai, and yes, your sound will benefit greatly.

    Hey I wrote a little something when i got my sampler, about how it affected things.

    Mainly, getting something you can touch and play around with makes production much more fun, as using only keyboard and mouse is not very creative imo. A nice desktop synth like waldorf blofield would do the same i think. But a sampler is more versatile in that regard.
