The MV8000 has only 2 midi ports which makes it a beginers toy, the main reason most people love the MPC4000 is because of the extensive midi ports & midi controlling options, I sold my MPC2000 to escape the limited midi options and to use a MV8000 would be to go backwards the MPC4000 is more of a professional designed instrument in comparison to the MV8000.

Purchased the MV-8000.

With the VGA option, it's going to be excellent. The Akai MPC4000 has some nice features, Wordclock in, and 96kHz.

It all gets down to choice and the way one works, and it seems that if you have had a prior product from a company, you tend to stick with it. Well, I'm giving the Roland product a whirl. I think it will fair well. I think that Roland will add ‘drag and drop editing’ and allow arranging via VGA and Mouse, this will be a very handy.

There are two differences between the two companies and their approach to these machines, I believe they are. 1. The Roland camp approach is to minimise the use of the PC or Mac but still allowing USB access for file import/export instead of Ak.sys with added VGA support. 2. With Akai. Ak.Sys software is PC dependant for on-screen use and no VGA support on the machine.

This is what made me lean towards the MV-8000 the VGA option. Software is as good as Microsoft Windows or Mac OS and the PC hardware and dependent upon developers. I try to minimise my exposure to software and additional hardware when I can. The only flaw in the Roland MV-8000 (if you could call it that?) in my mind is its USB function, although a great feature, I consider it just another external requirement.

I think both machines do the job. I don’t idolise one or the other.

With the NEW v1.51 OS for the MPC 4000 I heard it's the best MPC out of all of them! I have the MPC 1000 but if AKAI improved the OS in the 4k and if there are no bugz and if the OS did fixed alot of problems then I might be ready to cop the BIG DAWG mos def! Wit the new OS I also heard the MV-8000 cant f$ck wit the MPC 4000 now! We'll see!

I own two MPC4000. It's still mine number one, ultimate BANG BANG machine. I want to thnx Akai for there Ak.sys for MacOSX. The concept of Aksys with a MPC and DAW is so strong. Your computer and MPC works like one machine. Drag and drop your samples from the computer to the MPC. Create a tracks on the MPC. Drag and drop the standard midi file (SMF) via Ak.sys from the MPC to the DAW. Put some vacals on it and youre ready to go.

I think the MV8000 is far from home. And I the MPC4000 is still standard in studioworld.

Both the MPC-4000 and the MV-8000 have their positives any one of them can be useful in the production of music so arguing over which is better is blowing smoke up your (you know the rest), but it does make for good humor sometimes and I really do like to see how some folks express themselves in defense of their units
