Sound Quality
Sound? mmmmmm where do I begin other than fabulous. Let just say Big big and clean clean,very thick punchy sound for drums(espcially kick drums or bright snare or bells and toms,crashes) and very relistic clean sounds (piano,bass guitar, human voices) for keyboards 24 or 16 bit . This baby cuts through all mix's. If you want that big full sound look no futher. You can sample something from an old record and eliminate all the snow(static,poping noise) to where it is clean. The onboard effects are as good as you apply it If you want something different you can use an external device. Effects? You can slice and dice your sample in many pc's to play the slice pc's seperately on your touch senstive pads with one stroke.To many things to mention.It can slave to midi very well also being able to create program changes with in thec Mp4k meaning your can assign different program changes ex. midi ch.1 drums , midi ch. 2 keyboard sound to be controlled from mp4k by a master controller.
Never had a crash I would use this in all applications, live show and etc, But it was really made for a Proffessional recording instrument as apart as your gear for the recording studio. Don't get me wrong you can use it as an instrument for your gigs. but mainly I keep this baby im my Home studio ,covered and fixed. Put it this way, If it was stolen today I would get another one today or the nextday. This machine if use correctly is unimaginable,it can create success,maybe create to many aspiring stars (laugh)
General Comments
In closing I will say overall rating A+++, have no quarms with this machine,I have used the mpc 60,2000,2000xl and 3000 and other types of samplers and drum machines and this one is by far the best of them all. The learning curve is expected, but for all those who are afraid of change, don't be fooled by "Hear Say" I own one and can tell you first hand this machine is incrediable sounding and has user friendly abilties. You can store ton's of samples and programs upon your command to the hard drive space or save all your creations on a cd( in folders), which can be pulled up just the way you created on command, no lost data.( song mode, sequences, song set-up with all drum sounds and programs midi connections and etc). Mv 8000? what you think, they tried to copy from the orginal, Man (laugh)
