This machine is full of great features. Usb, effects, 3 filters (high,low and band pass), up to 128 mb of ram, and you can save to compact flash cards. It is missing timestrecth and zoning but those can be done outside of the mpc via computer. I don't necessarily do either cause when I want to change the speed of my sample I'm used to just pitching it down and also the extract feature is very easy to get used to. (The extract feature does the same thing as zoning basicly).

Price paid

860 USD


This mpc is very, very easy to use. Some things I needed the manual to figure out. But most of the stuff I figured out on my own. I wish they would've made the layout more like the 60's though.

It seems well built but the other machines are built alot better in my opinion.


It has a nice quality sound. It doesn't sound as warm and thick as other samplers I have messed with but, when you know what your doing you can make it sound really warm and thick. Basicly it doesn't anything extra to the sound like lower bit rate samplers do. What you put in is what you get back out.


I really love this mpc because it was my first but I think I might be upgrading soon. Everything just seems sooo.......squished. If it were stolen I wouldn't probably get it again.
