    Just put it away for about a year and the feeling will be gone. Then you sell it.
    Erase. Stop. Start.

    You could always "Loan" it to me for a few years (i'll pay shipping!)

    I'd even send pictures :eek:

    if you don't produce i guess it's pretty useless.

    i guess you could midi link it to traktor and add a couple synth bits into your dj set.... then again, sure that would get kinda old.


    a sneaky sell might be your best bet. depending on who bought it for you maybe you can get a similar piece of gear that's actually useful to you, like a similar looking midi controller or whatever. just pass it off as the gift lol.

    I used to have an MC-505 - great little toy

    as far as I recall, it always outputs midi - just hook up some midi cables and you should be able to use it to control Traktor / whatever.

    btw - I don't think you'd get much money for it... probably no more than 200 at a push.

    Shabazz Palaces uses a SP-555 with Serato, but he's not really a DJ, and that's not exactly a 505.

    You can always do what MIA did and just experiment with it. Who knows, you might get something cool out of it.
