    SONORITS

    The incorpors sounds are not all so bad that has, I gard few, but after depending on the style of music you want to do you have that this is done to sampler has !!!

    The effects can be used in small amount they spend well and it would be best when even a multi-effect exerne but hey it's not essential.

    Very good sonorits, it is so pleasant that I let squences shoot for hours (in fact as many problems clippings of randomized sound which seems will r by the new OS I expected GGGGGGRRRRRRRAAAAAAAVVVVVVVEEEEEEE)

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for two months and I found this little beautiful !!

    I love his big portabilitsuper (that is, among other things is to I have prfr his big sister MPC2000), its usb prt very fast and convenient for exchange bw / Mcf

    This is my first "groove machine" so I can not really compare, price quality ratio is acceptable even if it's hard to get out 1000euros plus 120 for the memory AKAI (required)
    I rachterais without hsiter! Really I have not regretted but I have not eaten for a month !!!!

    UTILIZATION

    There is an adjustment period (it can be long if you have never touched the mao), but it comes pretty quickly.

    I do not have the manual. The problem is that it is for akai base, and was quick to pass at least JJOS1 when we know what we can do with it.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds it is we who put them, so it's silly to judge whether they are good or not. The whole point of the thing is to put your own sounds. Basic sounds was inside I was horrible but since I bought it used I do not know where it comes from, and then I hate rap (unless it is sufficiently experimental) so necessarily ... If you want to buy something with samples already ready is not what we need to buy, in my opinion.

    Otherwise I can not find a quality loss in the samples that I put in the mpc, they are as I heard from the computer. (See can be better I do not know ...)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about 1 year.

    No I have not tried it but I was looking for something that is independent of a computer. That can be used without the need to bring a computer. And so it is perfect for that.

    What I like most is the ability to play with the sliders on the pitch, and also to trimer (set where the sample starts) by editing the sample. It can also make the slider on my MPC1000 but I can not do that in a specific configuration. I do not know if this is a bug or what but in my case it makes this function unusable. But it is good enough for me to do to edit the sample.

    I found the quality good value, but we must take into account everything that can be customized after expensive.

    With the experience I remake that choice rather than 2000 times.

    In 2014, everything has been said about the beast ... Reminder: 2 midi in 2 midi out, 1 stereo output with separate effects and 4 groupable by stereo pair needed (useful to put one or two on a set Kaosspad tracks).

    The effects are minimal job, do not dream but the reverb or delay sometimes troubleshoot. The integrated compressor boosts though the main output, but no miracle: it leaves only what we are going home.

    The upgrade to 128MB of memory is almost mandatory if you want to fully enjoy the sampler other than for modest drumkits.

    The buttons are a fairly average quality and deteriorate over time, but change the price of a welding workshop not too complicated.

    UTILIZATION

    Once past learning, which is not too laborious, we found it quickly when you've already teased hardware or software sampler.

    The firmware upgrade to JJOSXL2 transforms completely into a war machine and you realize you can really do without a PC, which I still doubt the reliability on stage (yes, I become old fart).

    on the other hand, do not be afraid of the language of Shakespeare: useful resource materials are in English. However, this really is not rocket science. Certainly, one can moan over the ergonomics of a software solution, but I've never experienced a crash or lag or mass problem and the buzz that follows.

    The sequencer is very comprehensive, past learning.

    SOUNDS

    The converters are rather neutral. There is not the "grain" of the old MPCs but this is not its purpose: it is CD quality, period. So, we can achieve the treatment samples for PC then pick it.

    When you upgrade the pads to the "fat pads" mpc stuff, feel changes dramatically! you can start playing beats like tutorials Jeremy Ellis with a pretty royal touch I must say.

    OVERALL OPINION

    With more than two years. Concerts, improvisations, residences ... I'm always happy. It controls my expanders and synths quietly, while providing a more than adequate sampler with a speed of creation.

    In short: I love it :)

  • Decent Mid - Level Sampler

    Akai Professional MPC1000Publié le 11/13/12 à 16:51
    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.

    UTILIZATION

    Precisely, the advantage lies in the MPC compared to other "samplers / sequencers," I find it really intuitive, someone invested in work will manage the machine perfectly great 4 months max after anything at the creativity is another story .. But what is "know your machine", the MPC is really easy to access the menus are simple. The manual is also clear throughout.

    SOUNDS

    As said above, no specific style of music. At the sound, well, yeah, it sounds! You put a "chack boom boom" in your GPA, it will remain a "chack boom boom" after level to really "sound" your sound, make clean (make a prod pro anything), it leads to the " mastering ", which is another story, and the same for all machines ..

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about a 1 year and a half, and I enjoy it like crazy, because of its "intuitive" as mentioned above. You can easily get a create a beat if we modicum of creativity. Value for money (600euro for me) seems honest. I would do this choice without hesitation, because it allowed me (being great beginner) to understand the basics of creating a beat. I tried to SP505 rolland before buying, and I totally preferred MPC1000. In addition, it is a great sampler! I use ableton parallel machine, and I NEVER sample above, still on my MPC! Since it has a "line IN CAR, I plugged my turntable over and sample loops from vinyl (besides the work loop itself is also intuitive). Basically if you're thirsty creation ( intuitive) in which you used your fingers instead of a mouse and a keyboard, GO!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have my mpc 1000 for 1 year but I have not found the time to use it for a few months. I admit I had a little trouble at the beginning to immerse myself in the record, as it is imperative to read it if you never had a machine like this before, but after some effort I am completely satisfied . What I like most is the ease and speed with which one can sample (when understood of course). This becomes even fun to assign your own samples on the pads and play them.
    Regarding the price, I've always found the price of such devices a little high, but the mpc offer many possibilities. It can be used in different ways. The fact that mpc can replace many other devices in the home studios may justify the price.
    It does nevertheless a great versatile machine which is essential for all fans of sampling.

    * Four-pole filters (two two-pole filters) filtering for each of the 32 voices
    * Two on-board effects processors plus main-output effect processor, all which can be used simultaneously
    * Outputs can be re-sampled

    I paid 800$.

    All the features you would need. You able to sample, edit that sample and EQ that sample in one board. Add your own sounds and make music as a professional. The downside, is the small LCD, it isn't as friendly as a computer monitor. And when chopping a sample you don't have the zoning feature as the MPC 2000XL or do you have the option of time stretching. But other then that, all is good with it. What more can you ask for in a portable music production center?

    <a href="https://en.audiofanzine.com/sampling-sequencer/akai">https://en.audiofanzine.com/sampling-sequencer/akai</a>

    It is quite simple to use. The manual explains everything so clear, but at times you will have to call upon outside help to navigate through some of the features. I would change the interface, I am so comfortable with it, that I can operate the MPC in the dark, sometimes.

    It is durable, My Behringer mixing board felt on top of the MPC from the desk to the floor and the didn't scratch it or damage the screen or the board. So that is tough machine for me. No repairs have been done. The pads are tough too, because I been banging on them for a while and still they uphold the pounding.

    No complaints about it. Just the quality I need for making professional sounding music.

    Good construction and quality.

    I love it. Everything you need in a portable machine. The only downside is the missing feature of time stretch and zoning. I carry this lightweight as if it was my own laptop. So small to fit in a backpack without putting a lot of weight or pressure on the shoulders or back.

  • the best quality / price range

    Akai Professional MPC1000Publié le 03/19/12 à 06:25
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    In the range of the new generation of MPC, the MPC is 1000 is it with the best quality / price ratio.

    All functionality is present in this model (unlike the MPC 500). The MPC 2500 does not provide, in my opinion, nothing more.

    Moreover, it is compact enough to be transportable and not take up too much space in his home studio.

    At the pads, no complaints really. The set looks less robust than the first generation (I also have an MPC 3000), but still seems high quality.

    The only real weakness of this new generation, it is the dial which, at times, lack of precision.

    The only real weakness of this new generation, it is the dial which, at times, lack of precision.

    The real advantage over the older generation is the CF Card, formatted to FAT 32 (therefore, readable by a Windows and a Mac OS).

    UTILIZATION

    The interface of the MPC 1000 has proven itself. It is really fun to do with her.

    In my use, I cut samples of PC, the different patterns of MPC, and I pass on a PC for sequencing.

    If I need to add notes of my synth, sampler I prefer the line of notes and play in the MPC.

    Large defects of the MPC:

    - Export into separate tracks: Can not

    - Enregisrement the audio during playback: it would be a more

    The advantages of MPC:

    - No slowdown, no lag, no crash

    - All in one solution, if desired

    SOUNDS

    Well, I want to say that the sound comes out of the MPC is fairly neutral and that it depends on which injects samples.

    Level effects, not much. For my part, I only use three effects: compressor, reverb, and EQ, and used in small doses, they do the job.

    For grain, nothing prevents the use of a sampler upstream.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought a few months after its release (red and blue model) and is always at the center of my setup.

    I subsequently earned an MPC 3000, but I realized I could not do without the latest Akai, including CF Card!!

    This gives me a huge gain of time on my way to work:

    - I sample in my PC, I cut, I matter and I mumuse on MPC. If the sample does not work, I start again with another sample ...

    - I import several drum kits and I tried one by one live up to getting the right kick or snare that sticks to the sample.


    In conclusion,

    + Advantages: reliable hardware, ease of mpc, the effectiveness of CF Card

    - Weaknesses: export into separate tracks!!, The memory load

I have used the MPC 1000 black and the original blue one. Only difference to me is the operating system in them. The Black model has the updated version and this one doesn’t.


    UTILIZATION

    There is no need for a manual if you are already use to how the mpc works. The 1000 will be a breeze if you are use to them. If its new to you, then you will need the manual, because its nothing like using a software. There are a ton of options and sub menus to navigate through.


    SOUNDS

    Sounds are ok, You will def. have to add your own kits (drums). Because the stock kits just flat out aren't that good! But once you load your own kits you will get a nice gritty sound!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I love the whole MPC brand, the 1000 makes it really affordable for us on a budget. BUT, the 1000 will not compete with the more expensive models for several reasons. One reason is that the screen is so small and basic, you can really get lost going from on menu to the next. Or trying to do your chops on a little barely green lit screen that makes it really hard and strains your eyes. Also, the 1000’s pads arent as nice as the more expensive models. But If you can look past those issues you will LOVE it! Trust me its worth the buy, plus they go for around 800 on eBay now. But don’t expect the prices to drop any less than that. The MPC’s hold their value really well!
