Sound Quality
It sounds way better than I thought. It's portable, but I really wouldn't have a problem using it in my studio. The effects could have been better, but for it's size, I'm amazed that it can do almost all things that the bigger MPC's does, and sounds a good.
I haven't run in to any crashes yet, so yes, I can rely on my MPC-500. Although I don't gig, just for home/studio use.
General Comments
I'd by it back in a second if it was stolen! Fun, portable, great sounding. But if you don't need portability I'd probably look at the MPC-1000 or 2500. As a sketch pad in my sofa or making fast beats in the hotel, It's perfect! I can't think of a better portable sequencer/MPC/beatmachine.
