    Default Akai Professional Introduces The MPC5000 Music Production Center


    Akai Professional Introduces The MPC5000 Music Production Center
























    Akai Professional announces the MPC5000; the new standard for music production.

    The MPC series set the standard for producers making beats around the world. The new MPC5000 is the result of dozens of engineers, 20 years of experience and a new synth and drum sampling engine unlike any MPC ever.

    The MPC5000 is the first MPC to include eight-track streaming hard disk recording, a 20-voice, three-oscillator analog synthesizer with arpeggiator, a new sequencing engine with 960 PPQ resolution, pad and track muting and mixing, 64 continuous sample tracks and 12 Q-Link controllers. There is even a new FX engine with 4 FX buses and 2 FX per bus.

    The MPC5000's virtual analog synth eliminates the need for external analog synth modules or buggy software based synthesizers. The new eight-track direct to disk recorder lets musicians produce whole songs in the MPC and then mix them down with the internal sequenced programs and any input thru source. Add the optional CD/DVD drive and producers can then burn an audio or data CD to the mix. More than 650MB of premium-quality sounds from Loopmasters are included to get musicians up and running with pro-quality production in seconds.



    Unique to its class, the MPC5000 delivers a full suite of production features that include:

    Sixty four-voice drum/phrase sampler with 64MB memory built-in; expandable up to 192MB RAM
    Three-oscillator virtual analog synth engine with built-in arpeggiator
    More than 300 Virtual Analog synth presets included
    Eight tracks of Direct-to-Hard Disk recording
    More than 40 all new effects available within a modular 4-bus effects processor
    Master equalizer and compressor with "old school" mode that gives a vintage sampler sound
    Built-in 80 gig hard disk drive
    Optional CD-R/DVD drive
    USB 2.0 port for computer connectivity
    CF Type-2 card slot (up to 2GB)
    Chop-Shop 2.0 - slices a stereo loop into individual samples with automatic pad assignment
    Patched Phrases - creates multiple splits in looped samples to ensure proper tempo sync without changing pitch
    Continuous Sample Track - ensures samples play in perfect sync no matter where you start the beat in a loop
    Twelve Q-link controllers for internal automation, external MIDI control and quick parameter editing.
    240 x 128 hinged backlit LCD
    Ten built-in analog outputs, plus eight ADAT-optical outputs and stereo S/PDIF IO
    Powerful new multimode filter
    Two MIDI inputs and four MIDI outputs
    Turntable phono inputs with RIAA preamp
    XLR / 1/4" combo jacks with selectable mic/line levels

    The display is twice the size of the MPC2500 and MPC1000, so waveforms appear crystal-clear. Integrated Chop Shop 2.0 now supports stereo chops and Patched Phrases. The MPC5000 is also the first MPC with Random and Cycle sample playback added to the Zone play, and a turntable preamp.

    The MPC5000 is expected to land at retailers in Q2 - 2008 with an MSRP of $3,499.

    And they still can't put in a damn color LCD screen?
    It's 2008!
    I would still prefer the MV8800 over this.

    I saw this the other day. It looks pretty cool but I still prefer the original beige models.

    funny how akai markets their va synth as better than "buggy software based synths." i don't have a midi keyboard yet so i haven't played around with my vst's yet but i have never heard anybody complain about their softsynths crashin' on them.

    a va synth in the mpc, that makes alot of sense since ppl are usin' reason and fl studio like a mpc now.

    i'm waitin' for the roger linn and dave smith linndrum ii analog, it will be a combo of the mpc and roland tr-808.
    Linndrum II Analog Drum Machine
    Roger Linn Design
    the linndrum ii was the original mpc (linn 9000 and mpc 60).
    Vintage Synth Explorer - Linn LM-1 Drum Computer
    Vintage Synth Explorer - LinnDrum.
    Vintage Synth Explorer - Linn 9000
    Vintage Synth Explorer - Akai MPC-60
    Vintage Synth Explorer - Roland TR-808
    Vintage Synth Explorer - Roland TR-909
    i want a roland tr-808 and the linndrum ii will cost the same price as a used tr-808...

    @MJL - As much as I would love that, I highly doubt it.

    And I agree with Woods, it would be an awesome piece of equipment to have in your studio, but if it isn't helping you sell product, what's the purpose of having it?

    that's true.

    toys, toys and more toys...

    anyways, with the tr-808, i see that as more like a fast sports car (nissan silvia s15, never sold in the states, i want one tho'), i just want one (808) as my "toy." me and all the expensive "toys" i want. need to sell some beats and "finance" my play things. i have 808 drum samples that sound REAL good. but i still want an 808.

    oops, i'm off topic. back on topic. if i had $3000 to "waste" i would buy hardware like an mpc/tr-808 instead of buyin' software like eastwest plat. symphonic orchestra. at least i know that i can also sell hardware if i don't want it anymore... good luck tryin' to sell used software. most companies tie the license to one computer to prevent used software sales (yea, i know most ppl here use the cracked versions, that's just my argument for buyin' hardware over software.) what i mean, for hardware, the mpc5k seems real good, but i would probably spend my money on the cheaper mpc2500 anyways (or the mv8800, i googled it and it seems tite too.)

    tr-808 for the win, i like to "create" drum sounds. the vst version of it just has me wantin' the real thing now (d16's nepheton and audiorealism's drum machine.)

    mpcs will never get cheap old or new becuz each one can do much more than the other besides the jump from 2500 to the 3000 the only thing they did to make that better is to allow up to 32 bit samples instead of just 16
