    Ghet, obviously you've been reading the source a little too much, considering you're the one who seems to know that it now offers tutorials on equiptment.. which it doesn't anyways.

    next, and here's my brutal honesty. you're whack as all fuck, and everyone is entitled to their own opinions. if your beats didn't have the crunch and good quality sound they had, you'd be another lame un-heard of cat. yet the fact is, you've here doing your thing for stupid long, thus people sort of have to respect you.

    next, have you ever heard the saying, "don't fix what's been broken?" fine, you can have your new technology, where all of your sounds are ultra-simulated, basic melodies you can muster on ya' keyboard (if you even use one,), etc. im'a continue using the MPC, "grid-maps," or not.

    people have been gassing you, so, please, step back into reality. there was no need to diss me, at all.

    here's a testimonial about how much a "piece of shit," the MPC is....

    your favorite albums were made with it, unless you're feeling khia's new shit.

    also, KNOW YOUR INFORMATION.

    "47 and a half SECONDS of sample time for CD-quality " no, you're completely wrong. it's more like 2-3 minutes of stereo sampling time. more time in mono. see? i actually have one. i would know, wouldn't i? hater.

    and where you can get an MPC for the price of a Digi002, please tell me, 'cause i'd like to buy one. MPC's are SCSI-Zip Disk compatible, as well as having the ability to have an exterior harddrive up to 9 GBs.

    basically, if you're going to trash a machine, don't leave out information, and give kids false information. they listen to you, realize that. so you're making this difficult for them, considering you feel the need to be the computer-avenger.

    make a truely dope beat, sell it for more than 2.50 on ebay, then i'll give you your props. now? you just seem truely bitter.

    goodbye, don't even reply.

    ________________________________


    as for a drum machine, dystinkt, and while you're looking into MPCs, you can get the USB-MPC controller.. it's just the pads. cop that, with a sampler from akai (s900 or something) then just plug it into your computer, and you have something like an MPC.

    the pads are like, 100-200, sampler is the same.

    ghet with all due respect, you're chatting nonsese (regarding you hating on the mpc & basically calling it a piece of rubbish)... first up, the whole thing about sample time/bit rates.... people still use sp1200s (mainly for drums), that has hardly any sample time & is 12bit.... the reason for this is the 'sound'.

    I guess it all comes down to the whole digital vs anolgue thing... some people prefer their digital & synthy sound etc... others like more gritty sound with more warmth etc...... but cats like you who hate on good gear cos its expensive just make me laugh.... I hear the same people saying 'my c1 is just as good as a neumann u87.... the u87 is overrated'... or 'PCs are just as good as macs for music... macs are overrated'... or 'my behringer is just as good as a mackie mixer, mackies are overrated'....when they know full well if they had the cash they would cop one.

    Great, A piece of machinery comes with instructions on how to use it. It is good to know the MPC is slowly on it's way to installing practices instituted since the 1930's.

    Aww.. the little Mod doesn't like my shit... awww.... get in line with the rest of the haters, son. Your number is 3,195,293,583. Now serving your mom.

    LMAO @ this fucking moron. Welcome to the music industry, THE GAME OF TECHNOLOGY! You like your non-broke shit? Get back to recording on the wax cylinders Edison invented back in 1910 since.. you know... it isn't broke.

    *psst* I hate to break it to you, but your little MPC... hey... it's a computer. I'm sorry, we're your dreams shattered?

    No, you you got dissed for giving you wrong information. And now, you are giving out even more incorrect information, so prepare for more insults.

    CD Quality = 44,100hz @ 16-bit, also known as 705,600 bytes per second.

    32MB (standard on MPC2000) = 33,554,432 bytes.

    Simple rules of division state that 33,554,432/705,600 = 47.5.... seconds... mono.

    In stereo, you have 23.7 seconds of space.

    2 minutes.. WTF samples are you storing on your insignificantly little floppy disks? 22,500hz @ 8-bit? LMAO.

    On my computer, I have 9.57GB of storage, also known as 10,275,709,255 bytes. This equates to 14,563 seconds of mono storage... or
    242 minutes, 4.04 hours of storage at CD-quality of audio.. and I don't have to load shit on 1.4 unstable floppy disks. If you even wanted to touch my convienience of storage, you would need 7,000 floppy disks... or 98 100MB zip disks...

    MPC2000XL with Internal ZIP drive = $1,299

    Digi 002 Rack Unit = $1,199

    Shook.

    Seagate SCSI 9GB at 5400RPM HardDrive = $210.89

    This mutha fucka wants to pay $210 for a 9GB harddrive!?!?!

    Seagate 160GB harddrive at 7200RPM = $149.99

    I know dealing with floopy disks and shit, you are not used to astronomically huge storage mechanisms.. but I guess you like spending more money for inferior storage capacity.

    It was $100.... Proof thath researching information completely is very much impossible for you.

    I think thats the bottom line.... just use what your happy with.... but just because your happy with using certain tools for production, doesnt mean other peoples tools are crap... I personally use a mixture of hardware/software & Im happy with my setup for making beats.... the only think I wanna do is upgrade my mic/preamp to track vocals at higher quality.

    I couldnt care less what producers use to make their beats if they sound good, neither would I diss their equipment that they use to produce their good tracks.

    the digi002 is not a drum machine/sampler.

    and if you're paying for a full priced new MPC, you're out of your mind. i got mine for 700, my producer got his for 600.

    and in your game of technology, you should understand hardware specs, i.e. don't buy because of the price, buy because of what it is.

    you're desperately wrong about the sample conversion, whatever, considering there is a lot more than 24 seconds. personally i have 2 mb, which is 11.05 or something stero, 23 mono. it's all about how it works, doggie.

    and if you have that many haters, maybe that means something.

    boo @ your momma joke.
