    MPC 4000 is a MONSTER

    Akai Professional MPC4000Published on 10/23/12 at 16:24
    The MPC 4000 was released in 2002 by Akai and was intended to be the leader of the hardware samplers. Its notable features are:

    16 velocity and pressure sensitive pads
    2 MIDI inputs, 4 MIDI outputs
    96 kHz 24bit sampling
    16 MB sampling memory, upgradeable to 512 MB
    IDE bays for installation of internal hard disk drive and CD-ROM drive.
    Optional plug-in boards: Effects board, ADAT board, S/P-DIF & wordclock board, 8 analogue outputs board
    SCSI interface



    UTILIZATION

    Optional plug-in boards: Effects board, ADAT board, S/P-DIF & wordclock board, 8 analogue outputs board
    SCSI interface



    UTILIZATION

    The MPC 4000 is similiar to most of the other MPC's in the way that it is sequenced. A manual comes with the MPC 4000 but in my opinion, it is the type of tool that should be explored on its own. Everything is very straight forward on the 4000, and it boots up quickly everytime. One of my favorite features of the MPC 4000 is how fast you can load, save, discard, truncate, and manipulate samples of any kind.

    SOUNDS

    The MPC 4000 doesn't come with any stock samples because it is a sampler. And unlike other MPC's, this is a 24-bit machine so you aren't going to get that gritty, lofi, 12-bit sound of older samplers. This MPC prides itself on sound quality and it does have a great sound! It is still punchy, but clarity always stays in the sounds.

    The effects are fairly usable. It comes with bread-and-butter effects such as EQ, Compression, Filters, Gate, and other basic effects. The pads are very sturdy too and it feels great playing drums out on them.

    OVERALL OPINION

    My overall opinion is that the MPC 4000 is the best of all the MPC's. It is stable, easy to use, and provides the most features of any MPC besides the 5000. I have tried multiple MPC's but this one was my favorite for these reasons. I have let go of my MPC 4000 and bought a Maschine, but there are lots of days I wish I had never made that move!

    I overall give the 4000 a 9/10 stars.

    Expensive!

    Akai Professional MPC4000Published on 03/19/12 at 23:58
    The MPC 4000 is one of the most advanced MPC on the market that AKAI makes. The differences between this unit and some of the other units by Akai (1000, 2000,) is that it has a much nicer feel to it. The pads especially have a much softer feel to them. It just feels like they are made out of better material. The MPC 4000’s design kind of stepped out of the box from the ordinary MPC line. Its def. a different color than the other MPC’s. It also has a built in synth module so you can start to work on creating some synth lines or base lines right on the machine and have no need for another unit to create those.

It also has a built in synth module so you can start to work on creating some synth lines or base lines right on the machine and have no need for another unit to create those.


    UTILIZATION

    The manual is key to understanding this unit, its hard for anyone jus to sit down and understand it. Even if you are coming from other MPC models. This one is tough, they put all the bells and whistles into the MPC 4000.


    SOUNDS

    The sounds on the MPC 4000 arent much different than the most of the stock sounds that come on all of the mpc models. You will need to change you kits to your own once you purchase the MPC 4000! As far as the built in synth module. I am not a fan of it, it really doesn’t do that much for me. I would rather just use my Phantom for synths and baselines. Akai tried to create a unit that could do a little bit of everything . But I feel like they fell short because unless you are into sound creation you wont want to go through the process of creating these sounds. Most of us like using keyboard presets and tweaking them to our liking. Akai really doesn’t give you many presets (if any) to work with.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, it’s a very powerful unit. All of the MPC’s are! But this on is very expensive, you can a good keyboard workstation that you can sample on and do almost everything the MPC 4000 can. But die hard MPC users love the MPC and wouldn’t trade it for anything. But in my opinion you can go with the cheaper MPC models and get a keyboard or rack for under the price of this 1 unit. Its worth it if you have all the money sitting around, but you can get way more for your money!

    I love the mpc

    Akai Professional MPC4000Published on 11/27/11 at 22:03
    The MPC 4000 is a great machine, Akai has provided us with the MPC line for many years and I don’t feel like it will ever stop no matter how digital the music industry gets. The only thing I hated was that the manual made you dumb! After the first few pages after the contents, it seemed impossible to put what it said into action. Akai over complicated the manual! I love my mpc, but they may as well sell you a helmet or first class tickets on a short bus with this manual!

I love my mpc, but they may as well sell you a helmet or first class tickets on a short bus with this manual!



    UTILIZATION

    The MPC continues in the tradition of being easy to use once you learn the machine and its method of speak. I had a history with the 2000XL so I sequenced almost right out of the box. Despite having several sequences I am still learning to maximize all of the machines applications. The manual is straight forward. I've had my unit since May '02 and, honestly I haven't read the whole thing--every time I refer to it I have no further issues and the manual ends back up on the shelf.


    SOUNDS

    The sound quality is clear and honest--what you put in is what you get out(unless you start throwing sliders, twisting knobs, re sampling, etc. I primarily use this machine for several of the most danceable and club-friendly genres. But I plan on taking advantage of this powerhouse as a multi sampler for the orchestral sounds i need for film scoring. Yes this thing sounds that good. The effects are more than adequate but purists and/or gear heads will always prefer stand alone effects modules to those included in a sampler/synth.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, great machine especially if you are into hip hop you can really bang out your beats with the mpc 4000. Its built to last and looks great as well as sounds amazing. It definitely gives you that gritty 90’s feel of music when you create with it. I recommend getting this and loading up your own drums, stay away from the stock kits.

    UTILIZATION

    I never touched the sequencer hard in my life and I'm already comfortable on the MPC, the legend is true, it is a model of ergonomics, I never sought an office for more than 10 minutes (right after I do not know what will happen ...) and I barely saw the manual ...
    It is a model of ergonomics and simplicity, we know we will have to get into it, but it's so simple compared to the power of the machine.
    The manual may not be a model of its kind but is used only ...

    SOUNDS

    I have an Emu, and I have ben the MBM and the stories of "grain" ... I finally really does not sample, I transferred from the PC or sample CD so I do not want to speak on it. it sounds good, I like the dynamics well, and the effects section addresses this when it comes to sound a little boost.
    the pads are a little hard when the velocity, must be beaten for having a loud ... it must be adjustable, I should take a look ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had this morning and I feel that my wife will be jealous tonight ... this is my first hard sequencer, the 2000XL seemed a bit limited so I "made fart", and I have no regrets, except that total to be mowed for a while now ...
    A little expensive but I really have to be a parity machine psychopath ...

    The sequencer is very correct edition, and although the selection is based Freestyle Sift + left or right arrow. The mouse control via front panel USB between t have one more (but not the program of R & D Aakai)

    UTILIZATION

    The config gnrale is rather easy. The large LCD screen is a rel more from the MPC2000 for example. AIM would have a VGA output but good ........
    The function is clear, no ton of sub sub sub menu and the little orange button "window" makes for great service
    The manual is dcevant little didactic. Clearly we feel that it is designed for people for whom this is not the first BCAN

    SOUNDS

    The converters are of quality but it sounds even AKAI (lack of heat) I do not use the 24/96 rather intensive food processor because you half the multitimbral sound enhancement for a (very) sensitive to my ears.
    I still agree with Yamada Man, the pad is nice but too firm my taste. Full Level button renders services (Veloci background) but attention to the speakers.
    I do not return on the effects (see section prcedant)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bcanne the past 15 days. I had an MPC2000XL and I have an S5000 and an E-mu XL7.
    I have long hesitated between a PC with sound card and the MPC4000. This dernire prevailed for many reasons (portability and transportabilit (!), No config headlock, rarely stable OS bugs).
    I do not regret, I have too galer in the past with the sequencers software on PC. The switch on, it works.
    The problem is the price and once again I agree with Yamada Man. It's really a scam. In searching for hours and hours I have found in England in 1600 or 2400 euros Turnkey + $ 34 shipping. Which should be added to the RAM (SIMM standart thankfully) and a CD player.
    Dernire galre, I mount my same drive and RAM, distrust is rather complex and probably not at the door of all the world (not that I take to a specialist but I think be a handyman and honest experiment.
    Rflechissez if you your in my case. Prs of 3000 euros is roughly the price of a PC and a sound card quality ....................

    Super-simple archive management programs perfectly Screen Standard What happiness!

    SOUNDS

    By taking the mug may well be banks sounds really INTERESTED and intuitive for all possible styles. I compose and beat Big Dn'B and tape.
    I find the grain cool the 96 kHz-24 B has it all!

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been five months that I have and I am satisfied.
    I did not buy super expensive but the market has raque! Akai would still be able to add the same options for the price but hey!
    I think I Do not hesitate to buy it back.

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is a joke (a translates the gibberish goes quickly from an English trs approximate, even after the version japonaise.Une shame!) If you never touch an MPC, the interface could give you qqes concerns during the first weeks of use. However, all is still little that trs ergonomic slightly dgourdi. The edition of nanmoins samples remains fairly clumsy. As such it has prfrerea an external editor like SoundForge. Ditto for the Fast Fashion and instruments of keygroups multichantillonns: better to go through the software Akai (Aksys) plutt galrer that the notch of the MPC.
    A bad point about the dimensions of the machine: the construction seems solid gnrale (steel frame) but the weight and size of the object rservent use in the studio. Too bad!
    Finally, I do not understand why Akai does not offer "auto record" as the Z8: in this case, I have to manually save all of my samples from audio CD ... really weird and sacrment frustrating!

    SOUNDS

    Superior dynamic range (thank you on 24-bit) for warm and pure. No effects (reverbs mtalliques, alias distortion, compressor ... A SHAME inaudible !!!!).
    In short, apart from the effects, it's all good, and it is also a pchu MPC 3K. I compared the sound with the MPC 3000 a friend and the verdict is clear: no diffrence in the patch, the "grain" or dynamics. In short, if the interface of the MPC 4000 does not put you off, there is no reason not to be tempted.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use the MPC 4000 since June 2002. Bugs from the first OS disastrous for the most part t radiation and the machine is stable rvle trs use. There remain still some "shells" Aki has not deleted (what about the function Intellisample? What about the "note repeat" Bugge death? Why Is the groove quantize RALIS it more in real time?)

    Apart from these points qqes, I can not overstate the power of this machine phnomnale a while that it may be sufficient even aisment (qd add even a good rack of effects and a prampli for voice). The MPC 4000 can paritre mail order some, but given the price of an MPC 3000 and a Z8, Whereas it is possible that this is an excellent qualitprix. In short, of all good!

    it is true that section sampler is very complte, and pretty well made the quik fx are nice for a change ... and it's quickly trs simple looping perfect ... But it ' craft is less than the MPC 3000.La mpc 4000 is excellent for sound recording, live intruments ..., voice, sound
    combined with the effects applied directly in the base sample is really ...

    SOUNDS

    The effects on the MRIT to be there, but frankly they are using and strengthens the cot mtallique sound

    General for the quality of the machine is fabricaton mdiocre, notament all the keys and buttons, black pads that attract dusts is boring ... and all lables and MADE IN CHINA.
    Unlike the mpc 3000 that it offers a quality manufacturing much more careful.
    Filters are ... and many good but can I use trs this section, I'm in a synthse sucks.
    What I have with this change in the fawn BCAN to my beats is to play with the right button timming is a switch ON / OFF quantize ... for example I quantify my Charley the sixteenth ... without quantize the kicks ... checkout with ... another snare without correction ...
    It compence one can feel more of Groove squenceur that I 'get it with my MPC 3000, playing

    OVERALL OPINION

    In conclusion I would say I'm a can of this machine is a ((mpc 2000)) with lots of features ... can be a little too?!?
    Which are only window dressing ... they have forgotten a few features that made the success of MPC
    If I could make a sugestion to ingnieur of the akai squenceur menu TIMING CORRECT

    This change could be through the bone very easy ... but for the grain of the converters of 4000 are subjec not compete with the 3000.Il I have to adjust m and I am patient with this MPC is really hard for me to master at least the first few months but hey must persvrer and I think one can can produce good sound with ... well I 'Espree ...

    Certainly not the easiest machine at first, but given its potential, it is normal that we should some time to explore it in all its corners, I think anyone who wants to buy this expensive machine it's for good reason, this mine based on a fed up with these systems software that promise a lot of possibilities but we are sleepless nights rsoudre computer problems, I am not zicos computer, so a CT mpc4k is complicated but more for reasons of interface, it is difficult as the music can be ... In all the knobs and sliders assignable give access tons of possibilities. But some dtails enlve him a direct Accessibility assistive technology software for example you have to go through the menus to transfer or to a solo track. The manual is made Manir understand the operation of the machine, but it is not at all sduisant: couraging shots and copy and paste of references that do not exist, eg "for the use of effects see manual" part that is described in the manual I have the impression that the cem who described it is not amused! In any case, we do not want to dive back there!

    SOUNDS

    As for sounds, since it is a sampler 24b96kh this dpend only user of its choice and its rglages. For the ism, I must say that the neighbors really thought there was a battery home, I must say that some drumkits particulirement are effective, I do not know if the pads could VLOC be a little more flexible, it is true that one is tempted to bourinner over like crazy, knowing that the indoor, there is the hard drive, but running mode, it can make subtle tricks. And all that needs to pter, it must be to fool VLocity!
    But the issue of same pchu's all quite impressive, with Aksys is not difficult to quickly compare the quality of output it they akai any pc with any sound card!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 year yet intensment I at the same time discovering the andromeda which occupies much of his head ct and the goal is to drive with the andro MBM, I'll let you know of evolution;), I also galre TRANSFR some files "recycle". 16slices It's probably because of the maximum, which transferred to m'empche rer compltement my pc work of the MPC!
    I did not try other models of sampler, as I said earlier, I was fed up of pc problem! And issue price for the equivalent version soft more hardware, I'm not sure if it would cost less CHRE, the price of other apps and plug in more than 1000 ... It is sure that the machine is not very heavy for its price, when it opens it to find a quantum universe consist of mainly empty, but the cd cubase sx how it pse?
    I think I would do the same choice with an option that does not exist yet: a keyboard, a mouse and a VGA output. APRS takes the computer is the LCD screen ...
