HEY! Ive been making beats on fruity loops for the past couple years. But Ive always admired old school producers an hip hop. I would like very much to get into collecting an sampling old vinyl records. I don't know a whole lot about turntables but I'm leaning more towards analog because I wanna keep it old school. My goal in a nutshell would be to go buy a MPC & analog turntable and sample vinyls. Not so much on the scratching an mixing aspect at the moment but would be something I eventually get into once I get more familiar with the equipment. So here is a couple basic questions. I'm sure the experienced members shouldn't have a problem answering.

1. Main difference between Analog & Digital
2. Do vinyl records play on both Analog & Digital?
3. Do all vinyl sizes ( 7", 12") play on all turntables?
4. Is purchasing a turntable mostly for sampling a bad idea?
5. Are MPCs a bad investment?
6. What else would I need or want if Im trying to have a classic hip hop setup?

Thanks to anyone who can help!

    1. Digital vs analog digital sounds are information processed from a device(computer, cd, wav ect). Analog is sound normally from a real source,(your voice, drums guitar, even records are a real source).
    Digital would be like using a midi keyboard, and analog would be like using a grand piano. both have their ups and down.

    2. Records are anolog, but you can record them digitally using a usb turntable.

    3. Probably... The different sizes were played at different speeds. The 45(7") requires a special ring that most new turntables come with. Just make sure it's there.

    4. It's a good idea if you are serious about making beats.

    5. I don't use an Mpc so I can't tell you.

    what he said... I'd like to add that if you are serious about getting a turntable, get a serious turntable... Technics 1200 's have been the stple of DJ's for years... they are virtually indestructible You'll also need a mixer
