    The term "complete beats" means a lot of different things to a lot of different people.

    If you can give a clearer idea about what you want to accomplish, you can get better advice.

    If you're doing all the sampling on your computer don't get the MPC.
    That's Mr. Pookie to you!

    isnt that part of the reason they put a usb port on the mpc 1000 so you can work along side your computer to transfer samples, programs, sequences etc??

    Yeah sampling from vinyl is how everybody does it but it will be much easier for me to sample from CDs. Does the mpc 1000 come with any computer interface at all?

    Yeah but why make that extra step? If your going to edit it in the puter. Just put there first.

    CD's are good to go from, but I think vinyl will give you a warmer sound.

    get a software editing program, and if your gonna be sampling into your computer, you might want to upgrade your sound card.

    and yes it does come with a computer interface hence the usb port, which turns the compact flash drive on the mpc into a drive you can use on your pc...im not sure if you can use midi thru the usb on that machine tho...
