i got a basic question:
what are the advantages of using an mpc as opposed to software?
some people just love the hands on feel
^yeah it's really just all a matter of preference.
alright. i wanna try it out.
people take you more seriously if you use hardware.
anyone can get a cracked copy of whatever software sequencer...but to buy hardware is an investment which people will take as a sign that you're serious.
but really your beats speak for theirselves regardless of what you use.
agreed... i think the only disadvantage of hardaware is the cost factor but if you can get past that.. ypur home free..
the only great thing i can say about software is that its cheap and as effective..
but lacks the feel and history you get from owning an mpc...
anyone who has owned a mpc 3000 or owns a mpc feels the history behind the machine... jus like vinly vrs cd's or mp3's...
the hardware sample/sequencers are more dedicated machine. less options and expandible options than a cpu.. but have a betta feel easier 2 learn. and more effective for there targeted purposes...
if you dont got more than 5gs 2 spend go with software you can get more bang for your buck..
mpc and asr-10 and emu sp-1200 are tradionalist machine what hip hop was built on... so you should always own one.. sometime the more restricted you are the more creative you become... cpus make you lazy at times.. or 2 much overkill
jus my opinion and incite.. i suggest if you got the money buy a 3000 than move 2 a 2000xl if you want.. cant afford or buy a 3000 get the 2000xl the only 2 recommend from mpc for cats getting into producing andf the asr-10 is a beuty
see i woulda said suttin if u hadent made that last second rebuttle lol
nobody buying the beats care what u use,
if ur out to impress other producers who WONT buy your beats
then do what they think is cool
if ur tryna make good music an make a living off it then do you
peeps use the mpc cuz it has pads, rather than keys or a mouse lol
the swing that it programs at is more of a hip hop based swing
(or so ive heard lol never used one)
an shit like FL5 doesent have that...you could get it to do that, but it dont come like that na mean.
and you can set the velocity(s) on it so if u hit it soft, the sound is soft u POUND THAT SHIT its gonna thump
(shrugs) matter of preference, u put an mpc in my hands, id put a slice of pizza on top of it, cuz im more trained with my keyboard.
