Akai | MPC3000
The MPC3000 is a improved version of the classic MPC60. It is a sequencer-sampler powerhouse that functions as the heart of any studio that produces HipHop, Rap, R&B, and even techno (and others of course). It is usually used as the main percussion groove instrument. Sample your beats, sequence your beats, and edit your beats all on the MPC3000.
It's a Sampler: 16-bit stereo 44.1Khz sampling with 2 to 32 MB of memory and full editing capability. Its sampling specs are equivalent to most rack-mount type samplers, proving that the MPC3000 is a professional instrument.
It's an excellent Synthesizer: Sixteen dynamic pads with velocity and aftertouch, great drum sets, analog-like filter sweeping with resonance, analog envelope control and 32 notes of polyphony. Except for the drum sounds, it does not feature a built in oscillator or synthesizer engine. But your samples can be shaped and colored by the analog-style edit functions for creating lo-fi sounds, filter swept pads and drum loops, and other strangely modulated effects. This effectively makes the MPC3000 as powerful and editable as any synthesizer.
It's also a Sequencer: 20 Songs, 99 sequences, 99 tracks, and up to 75,000 notes. It has total MIDI implementation, very sophisticated sequence editing, and SCSI + disk drive storage. The MPC can be the Master or just another sampler in your current MIDI studio. Professional MIDI, Sync and Time Code features are also onboard.
The MPC3000 is not just an instrument, it's an entire Music Production Studio! With seemingly limitless features it is vastly expandable. SCSI storage provides limitless sample storage. The sound quality and sequencer quality is superb. These are expensive machines and with good reason.
There was a nice Limited Edition with a fancy new paint job.
