This Music Production Center has the legendary MPC feel and workflow, with a greatly expanded feature set.

The Akai MPC5000 is a drum machine sampler that includes 8-track streaming hard disk recording, a 20-voice, 3-oscillator analog synthesizer with arpeggiator, a sequencing engine with 960 ppq resolution, pad and track muting and mixing, and 64 continuous sample tracks. The Akai workstation even has an effects engine with 4 FX buses and 2 FX per bus.

In addition, the MPC5000 features a 64-voice drum/phrase sampler with 64MB memory - expandable up to 192MB. 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 to include Random and Cycle sample playback in addition to velocity Zone Play. A turntable preamp is also included.

The MPC5000's virtual analog synth eliminates the need for external analog synth modules or buggy software based synthesizers. The 8-track direct to disk recorder lets you produce your whole song in the MPC and then mix it down with the internal sequenced programs and any input thru material. Add the optional CD/DVD drive and you can then burn an audio or data CD or your mix. Over 650MB of premium-quality sounds from Loopmasters are included to get you up and running with pro-quality production in seconds.

Not the 4000, but.....

Comments about Akai Professional MPC5000 Music Production Center:

Nothing like its big brother the 4000. But, it still holds its own. Quality overall is great. If you're looking for something to bang out some great drum patterns and turn heads when they hear your product and see what you're working with, this is the one. I love it! I use it everyday. Well worth it if you're aiming for that classic hip hop feel in your music and in your studio..

Comments about Akai Professional MPC5000 Music Production Center:

I have used ALL the MPCs at some point. I currently have the 1000 and this 5000. The feature set of the 5000 is far superior to the 1K. I have created outragous FX in the envelope section. If you are just banging out beats, or choping up samples and playing, the 5K is TOPs. All the talk about the "great 4000, or 3000" What? Those Boxes are inferior feature sets and they lack the controls of the 5K. Sound is not distinguishable to a human ear! the 2.0 system worked out the early bugs. Synth is decent, very tweakable. Powerful Box. Hard drive is standard.
