    is everything included to make a track or do you need other equipment to supplement?

    Well its a sampler so I believe it does. When i first started i just used the sounds on it until i got my own. But the problem your gonna have at first is recording and that can be done by computer.

    ive downloaded some programs for the computer a while ago, but it never really taught me how to use the shit.. and i think id prefer using actual equipment, just seems a little more natural, and fun...

    id spend 250-300 at the most.. since im just starting and not sure if ill follow thru long enough

    well theres 505s, 404s and 303s on ebay for around that range.. are those the cheapest+best quality out there?

    ive actually seen them recommended by a few sources so it will probably be one of those 3
