    What do yall think about the New MPC? Worth it or Waste of $?

    So it looks like the MPC Renaissance dropped recently, and I'm seeing quite a few producers (B. Cox, Jermaine Dupri, etc) jump on it. Wondering if yall think its worth purchasing or just a $1200 drum midi controller/hardware sampler?

    Reason I ask is because I have a midi controller and drum machine and they suite me fine, but also, I think you could get Maschine for way less with pretty much the same features.

    But also, some people still prefer having hardware with their synthesizers or modules. I'm starting to find that not as effective anymore because if you haven't noticed, say you have a track done on reason with 30 tracks, and you create a track on the mpc with 30 tracks, you still have to track out the beat on the mpc one by one which can really slow things down. With something like Reason or FL Studio, once you are done with the track, you can bounce straight to .wav or .aiff.

    So I just wanted to you guys thoughts?

    If you're familiar with the MPC OS and it's something you actually like and can work with, it could be a worthy purchase. If you're just looking for shit to add to the studio, I'd pass.

    Waste. You can do everything in Live, FL, or Reason. Who needs some poopy pads and buggy undeveloped software?

    Just get an MPD. I used to work on a 2000XL then a 1000. Today there is no use for those unless you just refuse to move on or you're more comfortable with hardware.

    If you want one just for the sake of having a MPC, go for it. But in 2012 you don't need one. I've seen cats chop samples in FL Studio just as good. And it cost $200 to $300. And don't sleep on Ableton. Go watch a video of Ski Beats using it. And he an old school cat. A MPC is still worth something because of it's history, but it's not in every home studio like it was in the 90's or 00's.

    I agree, but there's still majors (dunno if they are endorsed) showing it off:
