Revolutionary Drum Sampler and more
Intelligently designed, one could quickly load samples and play them on velocity sensitive finger triggers. I would create a self contained groove by sampling a bass note and guitar chords. Best of all, you could build your own drum set with the type of drum sounds you preferred, not just what came in the box. Even so, you had available a whole pile of internal percussion sounds to play with. The SP-12 had a flaw when trying to change the pitch of percussive samples, it added this grungy digital noise that became it's own cool sound effect. This flaw became popular and was exploited in recordings. Independent outputs were also a bonus. I got rid of mine once the memory started going.
