my fav MPC. its a personal preference, but its fast and efficient FOR ME. i can load up my sounds, and get 4-5 variations on one kit within 1 hour, no bullshit features, no crashing or errors...just the basics done well, awesome sound, really good resonant filters, stable, intuitive, on point sequencer/sampler.

Phaatt Azzed, hot, nasty(Good), bangin BEATZ!! That's the MPC3000. I agree with a lot of producers on the fact that the MPC3000 is still reighning as the king! Of course, the MPC4000 is blazin, but I have professional buddies with the 4000 and they say the extra features of editing, disc burning, FX....are hot, but the trade off is simplicity of the 3000! Bottom line is....I use the MPC3000 daily and on projects for Major Labels and I fly thru the programming! It allows ideas to flow fast. Hell, the majority of major Hip-Hop/R&B since early to mid 90's was made on MPC3000's!! East coast producers like the added sample editing of the 2000XL/4000(looping..etc). MPC3000's are rugged too. Most units are over 6-8 years old and still bangin!!!

Here it is for all of the young people that might not know. The End ALL Be ALL of the MPC debates.

#1. The MPC60/60ii is the greatest sampler/sequencer of all time- just like Mike Tyson in his prime..think Tyson 1988 era.

#2. The Mpc3000 is just the better, improved version of the 60- think Tyson in 1989-90 when he was knocking everyone out in minutes

#3. The MPC2000 is Akai's attempt to be better then they already were without the help of Roger Linn- think Tyson in 1990 when he got knocked out by Buster Douglass..He didn't have any of his original team with him.

#4. The MPC2000xl was Akai trying to make a comeback and reprove themselves after the 2000's showing- think Tyson trying to make a comeback against Evander Holyfield.

#5. The MPC4000 was Akai once again trying to recapture some of the magic of a time well passed- think Tyson vs Lennox Lewis- he did his best but I think we all knew then that it was over for him.

#6. Finally the new MPC1000. Akai is trying to show the world that they still got it though reports state otherwise - think Tyson 2003 making a comeback; We'll all watch but do we really even care like we once did.....

But Hey Lets build a perfect drum machine and not fight over which of these is better...

Just think.. The Low End of the 60/60ii - Kick drums The high end of the EMU SP 12/1200's - snares + high hats The sequencer+ solid build of the 3000 - super tight feel The wave editing of the 2000/2000xl and the processing speed + storage space of the 4000... Now that would be something

...............is anyone listening......Peace

The MPC 3000 will put out whatever you put into it. The interface is a little old school and I wish it had a usb connection (I guess that's why Akai came out with the 4000). The unit will get real hot if turned on for a long time. The only contender I see is the new Roland MV-8000. It has the design of the MPC with effects and usb. Does it sound just as good? Time will tell if the 8000 will take the MPC 3000 title.

if you want your drums to bang and your sequence to swang this is the thang. if you dont plan on using the mpc3000 to sequence and play the drums along with extra samples here and there it aint worth the money, this is a studio piece, its made for folks who got mad dough to spend on quality hear...coupled with sound modules, full samplers, the 3000 cant be beat.... IMO the 2000XL is a better all in one box for the djs just makin the beats etc....

really though, the 3000 a full studio together does like nothing else, save for perhaps the mpc60.
