Sound Quality
its a sampler so it depends on what you load in . the mpc engine excells in bright punchy sounds , perfect for drums and percussion . The resonant filter is ok but with no modulation/envelope options its a bit limited . efx are ok
no issues so far . has not crashed or done anything fully . seems very very solid and well built
General Comments
the mpc has really changed the way I work , especially in terms of drum/beat creation . nothing else compares once you get used to it . I am considering adding a mpc1000 for more power and flexibility but I will keep the 500 for some extra polyphony and to trigger live on the fly. or i might just stay with the 500 . once you get passed the screen it does everything you really need an mpc to do.
