Thread: Is an MPC really worth it anymore?

  1. #1

    Default Is an MPC really worth it anymore?

    I think not...I'd rather have my software and have a usb trigger finger or tha mpd16...I think MPC's are jus old-fashioned at this point...they were nice back in tha day before sequencing software...but now...they're jus really expensive fruity loops in a box...post any arguementz here

    Man, it dont matter what U use. As long as the damn beat is hot thats all that matters. Shit if U used Acoustica BeatCraft ( I Use FL6) and told people you Used a MPC to make that beat and its hot, still wouldnt matter. FUCK A MPC! Waste of money I think. Only people with lots of money buy them because everbody else has them.

    im considering buying one

    ive heard all kinds of arguments here. to me i think (note think cause i havent used one yet) that its kindda like turntables and scratch software. no one wants to scratch with a damn mouse. i guess it feels more professional (as someone said earlier) pushin the pads

    i really want one, regardless of whatever you can do with software. same reason why i got vinyl tables instead of cd ones


    most likely ill buy a used one

    Who said U have to scratch with the mouse? U can use your key board or midi. I still think they are a waste of money. Period

    but to me....an mpc is a machine where u import samples..make the beat..then export blah blah blah jus for a more handz on feel...i understand what u mean about the mouse, but with a usb type drum machine u get tha same hands on feel with out tha...#1. importing / exporting bullshit...and oh yes...#2. tha high fuckin cost

    oh yea...with a usb connected beat machine...getting and moddin samplez is quicker and easier...my opinion is any1 that getz an mpc...new or used is wasting there money

    I had one for 2years, then sold it...a waste of money...i should of bought a nice keyboard with a built in sequencer...i hate the fact that every time u turn it on, u have to re-load the sounds again and again...u need a nice keyboard to make the mpc hot

    as an entry level producer u dont need mpc, cause its at least 1000$;
    the purpose of mpc is make the process easier, but i would rahte get a trigger finger and laptop ...

    ^ same as above, as a producer thats getting into the game right now, id suggest buying an akai mpd 16 and a m audio oxygen 49, and a copy of flstudio, or reason

    Im getting into protools and my new korg radius, with a vocoder

    a mpc is a good machine if you learn how to use it, it has its pros and cons just like every other software synth does, but if you get the mpc 2500 with the expansion memory and cd burner you got a studio in a box, that you take with you whereever you go (yes so can a laptop, but a mpc cant get a virus or accidently lose all your shit,,,,, hold up, its a computer, it prolly could crash),,,, either way, opinions are like assholes, everyones got one, thats mine (opinion that is)


    WANT BLACKWALLSTREET GEAR OR NJD GEAR, GO TO WWW.SCHELLSHOCKENT.COM TO GO TO MY STORE, I GOT THE OFFICIAL STORE, I AM THE ONLY OFFICIAL SELLER

    Nobody talked about the power of the 12bit...
    The mpc 60 ant the 3000 has a 12 bit ADC, and that gives your beat a feel, a depth that you won't get with software unless you have your sound through hardware effects, 'cause it colours your sound... But yeah that is really expansive... I'd consider buying one only with the cash i earn with my music...(soon8-) )

    thats true^

    ive heard that asr's give the beat a certain "warmth" that cant be achieved through softwares

    im again gonna reference turntables, when you record from a vinyl table to pc rather than a cd table to pc, you get a grimier, grittier sound from the vinyl

    ^^ yea but now they have so many effects and vsts that vinyl recording isnt even needed..if itz from a cd..you can cut tha lows a little and add some vinyl sound effects and it still comes out riight..but i would still get it str8 from tha vinyl if i had it to sample..as for the "warmth" there are thingz you can do in fl that will do that
