I love the new MPC 1000. If you have history with the MPC series of samplers then it should not take you long to get up and running. The USB capability alone is worth the price of admission. I picked up mine off of EBAY for 879.00 but it came with 128 meg chip already installed. The compact flash cards are relatively inexspensive. has a 128 stick for 9.99 after a rebate. Plus you can get up into the gigs of ram. Can't remember what but over 1 gig for sure. Great product looks good and for me it is the right size. Some of these drum machine samplers are as big as TV's.

AKAI has a winner.

oh the question.... I wana produce bomb tracks, so I gotta get the "right gear"...

I learned the expensive you dont need the Latest & Greatest Gear to produce music, you need talent. As for the tools to express that talent, the MPC1000 is as good a tool as any I've seen or used live or in studio.

And yes, it rocks. I had an MPC2000xl (someone stole it from a gig. never trust crooked club security) and i liked it, but it does require more upgrading and doesnt have the beautiful USB & Compact Flash interfacing (new 2000xl has zip disk drive!!)

the MPC1000 is so small, good for portability. And it is true, if you open it up there is a spot that looks like it could hold a Hard Drive... that would be so amazing.

Do i think MPC1000 is better than 2000xl? Yes and No. Yes because of the size, value, interfacing. No because you almost need a 2000xl to be taken seriously by many in the industry.

If you buy one be sure to get that warranty card in, because some of the buttons/sliders feel like they wont make it through a year of giging. And the OS is buggy, but a few upgrades and it will be fine.

Have fun

This machine is dope. I love the size and all the options on it. Only thing that I don't like are the knobs and the q slider. They feel weak. But the punchiness of the sounds is awesome. No other drum machine out there feels and sounds like the MPC's. The usb option is off the hook. Transferring wave files are easy. If you are into hardware and software this MPC is for you. But if you don't use software, get an Xl. Nuff said. This machine is dope, dope, dope!!!! Trust me.
