Really, I don't understand your will to "repad the pads"...What on earth is it supposed to mean?! Please, stop polluting this board with stupid remarks. Moreover, if you bought this piece of kit 4500$, were the pads your only motivation?! This thing is so brilliant I can't put enough stress on all its great features. It's a breeze to use, sounds great and it's an outstanding live production tool. Bravo Akai!

The ultimate sampler/sequencer? No, it's simply the ultimate electronic musical instrument. This is what mpc users have been awaiting for years!! Sell everything you have to get this. You'll NEVER regret it.

I'm in love with this piece of gear. Nothing can come close to it. It's probably one of the best instruments Akai released over the last 10 years. A future classic!

This is a dream come true. The ultimate hardware sequencer combined with the ultimate hardware sampler. This couldn't be much better than that. Bugs are almost all gone so the machine is now one of the most enjoyable instruments you can play with. Ak.sys just rocks, even though it may sometimes crash when too many samples are transfered simulteanously. Aside from that, I can swear this baby has never let me down even once! I'll just give it a 4 for the early release and the fact that all the features are not implemented yet (especially HD virtual playing and the CD burning option) A future classic and probably the last MPC before Akai goes software.

I had a dream 3 years ago that Akai would make an MPC with the best features of the MPC 3000 and the 2000Xl....My dream came true months ago with the release of the MPC 4000. This machine is incredible. With the Akai Sys software, not only can you use your computers hard drive to store your samples, programs, seqences, etc., you can also use your favorite sample editor to edit your samples. Then you can dump the samples right into the MPC 4000's memory via USB! If you don't haver a sample editor, no problem. It has graphic wave form editing, re-sampling, normalize, time stretch, and a slice sample funtions. When Akai added these features to the 2000 XL, I felt that was a big joke. The 2000 Xl takes forever(I'm talking up to 30 minutes) to time stretch samples. The 4000 takes a few seconds! The memory capacty can be expanded to 512 MB memory so it can handle the most demanding chores. Go ahead and sell your other hardware samplers. This baby has a full fledge sampler in it. The first in an MPC. It has plenty of filters, two LFO's, and each sample has up to 4 zones. MIDI outs? This unit has four like the MPC 3000. This unit is at home in the most complicated MIDI set up. Track count? 128! I'll never need that many......Oh, I almost forgot a favorite of mine. The MPC can sample itself. Just prgram a drum pattern and layer that with some phrase samples in a sequence. Go to the sample record menu. Hit sequence play then hit sample record. That's all to it! I could go on for hours about the features....If you have a previous MPC, I would sell it while you can still get good money for it, get rid of any other hardware sampler you may have, and you just may be able to muster up enough to get one of these! Great deals on this unit are already in the classified section of Sonic State. Cop one now!
