    MIDI KEYBOARD vs. MPC Keyboard WINS

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Why are people still buying MPC's when all you have to do is buy a MIDI keyboard... You have more range and more flexibility on a MIDI keyboard... You can play notes, chords, you can map samples out on each key... Someone explain to me the benefit of having an MPC when you already have a MIDI KEYBOARD?

    I guess some people are hobbyist and want an MPC or prefer its workflow?

    FL Studio + MPK 88 + MPD 32.
    It's better than the MPC Renaissance.

    I don't really think there is one. Live drum parts such as rolls, and fast playing are a bit easier with pads, but for studio use nothing really.
    If you really want to find out about the mpc pads, buy a cheap pad controller like an mpd18 for $70.

    well its because of the workflow, the sound, the type of production you specialize in, etc

    i have maschine, mpd26+reason and I still have my mpc 4k.....they all are great. Just a matter of preference. Also it matters alot if you have any hardware synths or not. Even though the pads on the mpc are great, the sound is dope, blah, blah blah......with all of that the real gem is its sequencer. Nothing grooves and bounces like an mpc.....ive seqenced reason, ableton, logic, etc and to get that bounce you have to manipulate those programs....mpcs have it stock....so thats why in my opinion.

    It depends on your budget, your style of music and your personal preferences; with the mpc you have a hands on approach, a crazily simple interface and a generally nice way of working.
