The MPC 3000 is the bomb, man! You guys who claim not to like the MPC3k must not be breathing the same air we humans do. In my opinion the feel and groove on the MPC 3k is better than anything out. I was thinking like you guys and did not pick one up until I found one in a pawn shop for $600.00. It changed my whole way of thinking. Now the MPC2000 sits and waits to be used, although I use it every now and then for extended samples along with the roland VP 9000. Now bj wrote a few threads back that MPC stood for "major piece of crap". May I ask what b.j. stands for? (;-) -just funning) Anyway,everybody keep making good music, and whatever gear God blessed you with, make some noise!

I've used the MPC 2000, MPC 2000 XL, and the MPC 3000. I sold both 2000's and currently have a 3000. I find the 2000's easier to sample and edit the samples. The 2000 Xl has a few new features that are pretty nice(splicing samples). I wouldn't waste time using the resampling and time compression/expansion functions. It would be better to use a stand alone sampler. The 3000 sound is superior to the 2000. It's easier to get around the 3000. I love both machines but will never under any circumstance sell my 3000. Well......If Akai made a MPC 4000 which has the best features of both machines(2000's graphic wave form editor, multi-effects, looping and the 3000's sound quality, multi MIDI in/outs, balanced outputs), I might give up my MPC 3000 but it would cost the buyer a pretty penny...Time to make some music...Holla at me if you love Hip Hop and live in Japan.....

my first experience with an mpc was about 9 years ago ,the mpc6011. it made me some pretty sucessfull records.after which i then decided on moving up to cubase atari then mac which pretty much made my downfall in the music biz .i just found my inspiration lost since moving into software seqs & wasting about a year on about 4 finished tracks. anyway last year i thought fuck this crap im gonna either give up 4 good or i have to do something drastic to my studio to get back my creativity.so i sold my mac g3/g4 half of my synths (i'm now left with 2 only) & got an mpc 3000 le .it pretty much changed my life ,everything feels right again even a crap tune has something good about it . i liked it so much i decided to get an mpc 2kxl & used it for about 6 months before i realized that the mpc3k le just had something more special about it .the sound of everything just had a bit more grunt & power & definetly more bass response.now the 2 kxl is still a good machine & more suited to drum'n'bass (160/180bpms) because it has a tighter more straight feel than the mpc3k le which seems to be more suited to slower bpms(140 to 80) for garage r'n'b/hip hop & in my experince has more of the classic sound of the mpc 60/60mk2 which im very much used to.

since I last posted about the 3000, i opened up my mpc 3000 to get dust out I found a loose screw rolling around I couldnt find where it was from,so we'll see what happens,but I found out how the bug got created, when you go to the assign section, and change a pad assignment to decay at 2000 hi 2000 lo,I forgot that that was the last thing i was messing with,and it freaked out after I left it at that setting,so i changed it back to the assignment being on tuning for all pads,now lets see whats going to happen when I have to use decay on my unit in assign mode.will keep u posted as to further results. i
