    which mpc is the best sounding sonically?

    Hey dudes I heard for a long time that the mpc 3000 was the best sounding but now I heard that the 4000 is the best sounding now and it's industry standard. I just bought the 1000 and put on the jj os (which is very dope once you get the hang of it.) I would be interested in purchasing and learning the 4000 if the sound was really that dope. I was told the 1000 makes you drums sound a bit think. Does anyone else have experience with the new generation of mpcs. I am not interested in the 2500. I have used the 2000xl and I loved it but hated using zips.. Opinions please?

    The best sounding sonically ... ? ... as opposed to the best sounding visually? ... LOL. (just messin' wit cha)

    not interested in the 2500???? LOL....excuse me for laughing, but considering the fact that Akai is discontinuing the 4000 and putting the 2500 at the top of their MPC line, for you to say you are "not interested" in the 2500 is a little funny to me. and you say you have a 1000...the 2500 takes a little bit from the 1000, 2000, 3000, and even the 4000. so how could not consider something like that???

    and oh yeah, to the 2500 sounds great just to let you know....

    the 4000 has the best sampling specs, the 2000/xl and 3000 use the same sampling engine and ad/da converters. the 1000 and 2500 i dunno about.

    Id say the 3000 is the best sounding. the 4000 is too clean in my opinon. If you can still find one however I say go for it. Akai discontinued the 4000 because public never really caught on to it.

    Yea i know about the 3000 great machine but hard to use. If it came with a compact flash reader I would consider getting it though. It's a beast. They probably got rid of it because of how hard to use it was...

    You oughta change your name if you think the 3000 is too difficult. Seriously though, If you already have a MPC, getting another one only for a difference in sound doesn't make sense. Invest in monitors and eq's et c if you want to mix by yourself, or invest in vinyl or other sources of sounds if you don't.

    The cleaner the sound the more I hate the machine!
