How many sounds and styles available? Are ditables? Through a utility Mac / PC?

the few sounds available on the smartmedia of origin are an unnecessary absolute. clear direct.

UTILIZATION

- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?

compltement yes. application has 15 minutes to take control of the machine and understand its operation. squenceur trs so intuitive, erase functions of copy, mute, etc. very easy mix of CASC. a rgal.

- The usual functions are they easily accessible?

Yes! few sub-menu, everything is more or less accessible with a click of a button.

on the other hand! attention. bullshit from raka: USB. impractical to do nothing when the computer is connected. the coup was blocked compltement crativit time. it's like back in the days of floppy 5 1 / 4 ... a shame! this machine Arelle ten years behind on technology ...

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

I do not know. not yet opened. ct cheap but the staples of the two is again limited ...

SOUNDS

- The sounds they agree your style of music?

that is the bottom hurts. if you forget the original sounds and cared for the party sampler to its own sounds, we quickly realized how Aka's laughing at the mouth of the world. section is a sampling innefficacit incredible. NOTHING. there is almost nothing like function or to treat its sounds. Systm is the loopback archaque, filters are hyper LGERS, no reverse, no time-stretching, orders for once think are absolutely wrong ... in short, is the disaster. obligation to spend a software (Peak, Spark etc. (Mac)), for his samples and rinjecter simply by USB. in the end it's better as a, but indui two things: a computer and an audio processing software, so the money in addition to the MPC1000 which final rating dearly for what it is .

- Are they ralistes?

the quality of sampling and resampling is good trs. simple, clean, efficient. raliste so (but be careful, I work only on my numrique string).

- The effects are they effective and responsive?

no, no and no. red card here also.

- The expression is good? (Raction VLOC the aftertouch)?

Yes! excellent! the pads are amazing, a "groove" provided we know how to play a little. trs trs effective and enjoyable in the end.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest? ...

without comment.

notes on the sounds: 0 / 10
ism note: 9 / 10
Note effects: 0 / 10
Note expression: 10/10
sound note: 0 / 10

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?

a month. every day.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?

+> Connectivity, format, and scnique aspet practice of the craft, its simplicity.

-> Sampling, effects, its simplicity its price, its look and finish (even when IRONMONGER)

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

MPC2000 - EPS16 - Mirage - EMU64

- How do you report qualitprix?

exccrable. 400/500 euro nine with 128MB and 1GB in smartmedia would seem more appropriate for sincrement tural quality of the machine.
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

not. even when I keep it, but the day or someone takes a similar format A4, with Storage ditto, ditto connections and only functions squenceur / pads for 300 euro, I change. I have the "50%" of the machine that is absolutely inutisable date because of their quality innaceptable chapter in 2005 and the price ...

Personal conclusion: If you are looking for a workstation (sampler / squenceur / storage / Fast Fashion), go your way.
if you have too much understeer and you are looking for a nickel squenceur with the legendary MPC pads, may be worth it.
