Speed your record up when recording it into the sp 1200. Then pitch it back.

You can also use a MPC to pitch the sample way up, then just pitch it back down in the sp 1200.

This will give you more sample time at a lower quality. Some people prefer the degraded quality for a grittier sound

If you pitch a sample an octave above the pitch you want, and then slow it back down in the SP1200 then you get a lot less artifacts than if you sped it up to 45rpm etc. It's something to do with harmonics that I don't fully understand. Use another sampler to speed up the sample.

A 33 RPM record played at 45 RPM is slightly more than a 5th higher in pitch, or 7 half steps. +5 and there's an octave.

Oh right. Using an mpc might be a bit more accurate though.
