A must have

By Nacho Libre

from Tempe AZ

See all my reviews

If your at all serious about recording and producing I suggest getting one of these! It just took my project studio to another level! This is my first MPC but Im quickly learning. The capabilities are awesome! There are plenty of drum kits online and CDs you can buy to expand your library! Stop thinkin about it and just get one!


you gotta get one


from brooklyn NY

ive been using the ASR-X,an got execllent reviews on my work on CRAIG-G's last album.since i got the 1000,im hooked on tha sound, and tha feel, its so intuitive an easy to use. as far as reversing sounds, i found a way around that. for tha money its th way to go definetly!


The Best of the Best.

The MPC 1000 is EVERYTHING you need to be the next Dr. Dre! Seriously, this machine is top quality, and a great price for what it can do.


Great stuff in small size

By Dj Primate

from VA

the mpc 1000 is a great way to start off producing. it can be a beginners tool or an experienced producer's also. i love the small size, but it also packs a punch. i wish there was time stretch and also the memory card that comes with it is terrible, not to mention the small amount of ram. BUY EXPANSION RAM! it will help out a lot. i love the 1000 though and im making nice material with it.


Perfect for Sampling/Producing...

By B-Muzik

from King George, VA

I was at 1st questionable about buyin an mpc1000, but after playing with one, i knew it was a must. The ease and quality of the unit is perfect for making a beat. I use it for beats and sampling and a keyboard (61-key Motif and xv-5050 rack) for the strings and bass and WHEW thats some awesome tracks there. DEFINATELY, grab one. Plus is portable. I make tracks everywhere. It goes with me in my truck.




from south gate, ca.

The over all ease of it's use is utterly breath taking. I've had the same mpc 60 for over 15 years, and I've made the switch..BOOYAH!


Whatever you want it to be

By The Invisible Man

from Salisbury, NC

Bottomline, this machine can help you become as hot as you allow it to. It can be your midi controller, the brains of your operation, it can be something to spice up what you do with your software, whatever you want. I've had it for a short time (a month), and am just scratching the surface, but I consider it to have exceeded my expectations.

this bad boy thumps like no other, the analog converter is awsome sounding and is even stupid-hip-hop-kid PROOF!(and i am not one, but know many!)


Very Nice

By The Insomnyac

from California

A wise man once said, "It's not what you use, but how you use it." For the most part that is true, but the MPC allows you to do many more things than any computer program will do. I was strongly advised to begin using this marvelous piece of equipment by another producer. Excellent quality; it takes a while to get the hang of everything, as I havent even learned everything yet due to the fact that there are so many features, but it is a great peice of equipment to use. Professional.



By Bodine-nF2ts

from Camp Arifjan, Kuwait

I love the fact that I can get samples into this device quickly. I am currently overseas working and having the dual voltage has been a great benifit. Compact memory cards are fairly inexpensive I have found a 256 for $$$ makes it more cost effective than buying a zip drive and zip disc. The sequencer is as tight as any MPC I have used and because all my stuff is somewhat vintage (SP808, ASR 10) the fact that it only operates with midi clock has not been a problem for me as yet. The ability to spread a sample quickly and easily across several pads with different pitches is the bomb I think its a great drum machine.


Pad Problems

By Shysty

from Colo spgs,CO

Seems like the pads double hit or misfire when you have them set at the max velocity level. Also the pads are a little bit harder than other MPCs that I've used.


love this machine...have had absolutely no problem

By Mr. Ish

from Houston, Tx

This thing is almost a step above the 2000xl, yet still a step below. You can't beat it for the price....thats for sure. The sound out of this bad boy is no less than amazing.


My first MPC

By Stonecold

from California, San Francisco

This is my first MPC and I love it. the sounds are excellent. It's pretty easy to use and you can start groovin as soon as you turn it on. I still want to play around with the other models. For any first time MPC users the 1000 is a good start.


Economically Perfect

By MaxPtah

from Memphis, Tn

If you don't feel like dishing the mad cash for the MPC2000XL or the MPC4000 you can't go wrong with the MPC1000. It has ALMOST all the features of the 2000, and the controls are all the same. Some people that I've known here are trading in their 4000 for a 1000 because of the ease of use. One of the features that I used a lot on the 2000 thats not on the 1000 is the ability to play samples in reverse. Thats something that I've gotten around anyway. But all in all I will definitely recommend the 1000 over any sampler for the money.


i love this damn thing



im a first time user of the mpc and ive got o say it beats the hell ou using frootyloops all day this thing is incredible plus i use it with the fl studio4 thats makes superior i would recomend this to anybody i give a 10
