>The Mpc has gotta be the most widely used hardware sequencer live.
>The chemical brothers use 4.
As an aside - the chemical brother's live shows are notoriously 'freaked' (that's an orchestral term for when the parts are too hard for some of a section to keep up, so they just wiggle their hands around, to keep the audience from noticing.) One of the main keyboard stands tipped over at a recent show, and the music didn't miss a beat. "Girl, you know it's true..."
Not that that says anything about the MPC, which is a popular choice, with reason. However, I've found the used market on these beasts hopelessly overpriced. Check musician's fiend before you buy, to make sure that you aren't paying above the new price...

better with a cassette deck and a microphone."
