Why use two MPC's?
Posted 24 December 2006 - 05:43 PM
But i just got the "behind the Beat book", and I see a couple of cats having two equal MPC's next to each other.
Why have two of the same machine? I've heard some other cats saying they have two Mpc2000 xl and shit. Just wondering why?
I have always used a computer and programs like, FL, Reason and Ableton, for making beats.
Is there anyone here who's switched from a computer to a MPC? I feel that i can work 2-3 times as fast with the computer than a MPC... but i have been thinking about investing in the Mpc2500. I'm so tired of looking into the screen using the mouse all the time..

i can work 200000 times faster on th mpc than on the computer... i can chop samples a lot more accurately and faster using the mpc...... its easier to assign samples to pads and using features such as 16 levels which allows for control of different parameters like Tuning, decay, attack, volume... and just the feel of the sequencer, theirs nothing like the mpc sequencer....

only thing i use my computer for nowdays (in music sense) is recording and final mixing...
... my pc used to crash so i lost some of my best beats due to the crashing problem, my mpc havent even freezed once... so this is better sollution for me, might not work for everyone though...
... oh yeah and the sampling is easier nowdays cause i can just connect my turntable staright to the mpc without having to re-d the settings on my computer everytime i want to sample (every time i make beats so its every day )...

I went strictly hardware aftarwards. Picked up an MPC-1000 and an SP-404 with a midi controller and I will never go back. Don't get me wrong I will use some refills from Reason or VST's to add some sounds but overall beat making is done in hardware strictly.
