The MPC 1000 is a great piece of equipment and with the upgraded operating system its just like the more expensive models. It has midi and audio hook ups. You can connect your midi cords right to your interface for editing on a bigger screen. The MPC brand has the best sequencing known to all producers. It will automatically sequence your playing better than any software or other hardware program there is. The effects on the 1000 are kinda dull though, not as many options as there is on the 2000 and 4000/5000. But that’s why you track it out and use your computer program for effects. But the program itself comes with enough for you to complete a whole song it in. It has song mode, and you can lay a whole song out. Its kinda hard with such a small screen but you ca n do it if you have the patience.


All of the functions will take some manual reading, this isn’t a piece of equipment you can work our way through without the manual. You will definitely need to read the manual. But after reading the manual you will have no issues at all with navigating your way thought the menus and options.


the sensitivity and after touch is great on the pads. The pads are built to last and you wont have a problem with them if you don't hit them really hard. The stock sounds that come with it, will need to be replaced. They are very cheap, so definitely get your own kit together and get it uploaded.


The MPC 1000 is a must have for any hip hop sampler, it has great feeling pads and a great sound that comes out of it. You can layer your drums and eq them right on the MPC its self. If I went back to before I bought the MPC 1000 knowing what I know now, I would have probably saved up more money and just bought the 4000 xl. It has more options and a synth creator as well, not to mention a bigger screen . But the 1000 is great for beginners, but after trying the upgraded models you will want to upgrade asap!
