MPC5000 Over View From Musotalk
Exclusive translation Its a first for us, we’re hooking up with our friends over at MusoTalk.de, a German language video site – you may know of Noneric who’s a regular guest on our podcasts, to bring you this overview of the latest Akai flagship MPC device, the MPC5000. MPC5000
Launched at this year's Winter NAMM, it builds on the legacy of the MPC2500 adding 8 audio tracks and an 8-voice analog synthesizer. There is more besides, but I'll let Noneric from MusoTalk tell you more.... It's worth noting that this MPC does have certain limitations - the main one being the maximum sample rate and bit-depth seems to be stuck in the last century at 16Bit and 44.1kHz, and the maximum RAM is a measly 192MB. However, many people just cant get enough of the MPC way of working so may not mind these limitations. Pricing Available for $2499 from:
