get one...now.

unbeatable. the bounce and low end is amazing. it just is relaxing to use. everyday im discovering new features and loving every second (latest software, no scsi)

also, whats all the complaints in regards to a lack of filters. i got the unit with one kit of tb 303 sounds and have flipped that kit with the note variation slider and program controls into 10 different sounding beats thus far. get with it.

I have found the missing link in my beat making. far from outdated. i dont need all that fancy shit. this is the backbone of my setup.

I AM NEVER SELLING THIS.

I am a long time user and huge fan of the mpc60. My friend cashed in his pay checks to get one of those new mpc4000s, recently. It is totally rad but i thought it would not be as good as the 60. I was suprised to find out that it can sample at 12 bit and has an option to downgrade the sound quality to give it a warm, punchy, feel and it actually sounds like it came out of a mpc60. I was blown away. What do you guys think of this?

I just bucked up on a mpc 60. THIS THING IS THE BEST MACHINE EVER. This is the studio luxery edition. 2000's are for dj's. 60's and 3000 are for the studio. Its feels so real. Sequencing is a breeze and the sound is killer. It is not a lie your drums and other samples come out SUPER FAT. I use a triton as well as other emu/roland sound modules and having mp60 drums cuts through modern synth type sounds is incredible. The 12 bit sounds are definetly still at top professional quality. There not so much gritty as they are warm. Oh and compressing sounds saves sample space and for some reason the sample sounds better compressed. AMAZING. peace and keep makin trcks no matter what you got.

I picked up MC Hammers MPC60II a couple months ago from a Producer in Los Angles. He said it was sitting in his studio not being used (He USED xtensively a MPC3000) and wanted to pass the MPC to someone who would use it. I scooped up this Fully blown up machine. Ram Upgrade, Marion SCSII, Zip drive, OS 3.10 and Replaced Screen all done by FORAT. I was at the right place at the right time :] This machine is a REAL Workhorse when it comes to sequencing and editing sounds. I sold my MPC2000XL for this and completely satisfied. The weight & size of this machine is fat but when it comes to da Audio........I have had some crappy wave files on my computer(converted to MPC.snd files) loaded the MPC60 and BAM a salvaged file once again. It sometimes adds artifacts to your sound but that is the grittines from 12bit sampling rate. If you are going to get an MPC search, wait and you will find your MPC60/60II guarantee will love it to death. Speaking of death.....I keep thinking that the 60II would make a dope headrest for my casket when I die, then I could really Rest In Peace.

I AM A HIP HOP ADDICT THE MPC60 IS THE BEST HIP HOP SAMPLER EVER ,YOUR SAMPLES HAVE THAT WARM DEEP BOTTOM YOU NEED TO BLOW OUT ANY CLUB AND THAT LOW RIDER SNAP THAT SHATTERS GLASS AND A COOL EDIT PROGRAM THAT MAKES LOOP EDIT VANISH THE 2000 AND 3000 NEED ALOT OF PANING AND EQ TO ADD THE WAMTH THAT THE MPC 60 HAS, THE SP 1200 HAS THAT SOUND ONLY.
