The MPC 500 is the lower end model of the MPC brands. This 500 is ok but its nothing that I would go crazy for. For the price you are better off just saving up a little more money and getting the 1000. Because the 1000 blows the 500 out of the water. You are extremely limited with what you can and cant do on the MPC 500.

UTILIZATION

everything was extremely easy to use.

SOUNDS

Everything with the MPC 500 was extremely easy never once had any issues with it except for the fact that it felt cheap. I don’t recommend this to anyone that uses any of the other MPC models on the market. I purchased this thinking that it was going to be for my portable mobile set up which it is very portable and mobile and you can take it anywhere its even smaller than the 1000. But its just not worth it, the screen is horrible and you can edit on board. You have to hook it to your pc or mac to do the chopping and then import that sliced parts into the 500. That’s ridiculous I don’t know why they would even come out with a model like that.

OVERALL OPINION

Maybe I am just bias because I have been using the MPC’s for a long time and too see them created one that is sub par like this machine is it just upsets me. But to someone that hasn’t every use the other mpc’s before this might feel special to them. It could be just what they need to take on the road with them and do some drum patterns or sampling. But if you are a MPC fan and have used other modules don’t purchase this one, it feels like a toy and will limit your creativity, leave the mpc 500 to the newbies.
