I know this would be expecting too much, but I wish it could have transpose function+ bit faster time stretching

Price paid



Very easy to use, but if you are newbie for a drum machine, U might get into trouble understanding the system. the manual is ,,well,, wrttien in such dry language(since it is direct translation of japanese..) I hope they could be little bit more descriptive. After U fully comprehend the system of MPC, there is a lever where you press buttons and pads on mpc fast than you type.

the soft rubber pads do excellent job at programming with dynamic drum hits, you can even control the sensitivity of the pads. I never had any mecanical problems, but being made from factory does not guarantee you that yours will have the same quality as mine does. I have heard couple of my friends saying their mpcs freeze a lot, and somehow mine does faster time stretching than theirs.......




Where I have used 3 drum machines(mc307, Dr202, mc 505) and 2 samplers(mpc and sp-808), and even though these are disparate machines, mpc's Drum machine+sampler feature outstands. Dynamic pads and slice function will leave you with full of space to fill in your creative and experimental ideas on the pads. If you are into producing dirty and gritty hip-hop I suggest MPC-60(lower sampling bit), but if you want next sequence+track mute function, get mpc2000XL, I find track mute function quiet useful
