Akai MPC3000
I'm extremely satisfied with the features, especially with the MIDI sequencer, the best I've ever used in my opinion.

Price paid

$1.900

UTILIZATION

It's a breeze to use, the user interface is very user friendly, with all the common functions accessible right on the front panel. The manual is one of the most comprehensive manuals I've ever looked at from Akai, thanks to the genius creator of the MPC, Roger Linn.

I only use mine in the studio, but yes it is "robust" enough to use at a gig, it's built like a Hummer... lol. I've had mine for almost 2 years now and I haven't broken any buttons, knobs etc. yet. I've dropped my MPC twice and it still works like a dream. I've never had to contact customer support about my MPC... funny I never thought about that until now.

SOUNDS

The sound quality is excellent, 16 bit sampling of sounds. It has no onboard sounds since it is a drum sampler and sequencer. The MPC 3000 can be and is used in a vast range of musical genres, it's not limited to any particular genre of music, contrary to popular belief. The onboard delays are useful to an extent, but I usually use outboard effects.

OVERALL OPINION

I'm in love with this machine!!! I've had heated arguments with several girlfriends over it, needless to say they're gone and the machine stays... lol.

Yeah, and they've mostly been included in the 2K/4K models. I am satisfies with the features, tho, on it's own. The sequencer is more than adequate for midi and sample arrangement. The sampler could be a lot more robust....

Price paid

$2,200 (1994)

UTILIZATION

The manual is adequate for a beginner (like me) to get through. The MIDI sections are straighforward and I can usually find what I need in the index or HELP on the box itself.

Solid physical structure. The 2000 feels plasticky in comparison. Never used support.

SOUNDS

The sound quality is goood; I don't think the sound quality or "sounds" are focused in a genre--since the MP has no sounds really. The effects are okay, but I use them carefully on just some sampled sounds. I like the filters; they give sounds a really nice timbre.--should have more options for the envelope.

OVERALL OPINION

I give a lot of credit to Roger Linn and Akai for this revolutionary and inspirational machine. I love it and the few times I've "hated" it, it's been user error.....

4 MIDI Outs/2 MIDI Ins, built-in SCSI, 64 sounds per program, and filters, are all great featues. Screen could have been designed a little larger.

Price paid

$1,400

UTILIZATION

Fairl straight forward. If you've used a professional drum sequencer you should know how to operate this model within miuntes.

Built like a TANK!!! Unlike the MPC 2000 the MPC 3000 is sitting on some weight!!

SOUNDS

Definitely Satisfied with the overall sound quality. Crisp clean sounds whether they are sampled & tweaked by me or third party software disks.

OVERALL OPINION

Very easy to use, & it's doing exactly what I ask of it.
