"Decent Mid - Level Sampler"

Product bought used

Characteristics

The MPC1000 is a 64-track sampler/sequencer. It comes with 16 MB sample memory as standard, and can be expanded to 128 MB. It supports a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz, in stereo or mono. Its features include a USB port, an internal CompactFlash card reader, two MIDI inputs and outputs, and effects and multiple analog outputs as standard. Its sequencer's resolution is 96 ppq.

Utilization

It is a simple install as with most MPC models. The manual is clear and sufficient, and the functions are as easy as MPC's get.

Sounds

Not the best sounding MPC model, but not bad. The effects are below average I would say, but it still gets the job done.

Overall Opinion

It's good for someone starting out, not sure full fledged productions could be made on this thing. Overall I would still try it out at a Guitar Center to see if you like it.
