sequencing notes with MPC

With an Akai MPC2000Xl hooked up to a microKorg, how do I get the MPC to tell the microKorg to play a Bb (for example)?

E-mu XL-7 Command Station Vs. Akai MPC-3000/2000Xl

I'm primarily concerned with sequencing capabilities, although I know the MPC is renowned as a drum machine (so perhaps E-mu's PX-7 would be a more apropos contender).

Thanks in advance for your opinions and insights :D

Re: SleepDrone5

I just picked one up last night and have had much time to play around with it. It seems suprisingly versatile, but requires very fine tuning. I'm thinking I'll sample it with my V-Synth for a lead tone, or mess with lower frequency oscillators to get a pulsating bass... maybe through a tremelo effec...

Re: Korg DW-8000 Vs. Roland V-Synth

I just told the V-Synth guy that I'd take it.

The possibilities do seem really extensive and inspiring, plus it comes with the D-50 emulator if I want vintage analog tones. I'm also very excited about the sampling/sample manipulation capabilities.

Should be fun times when I pick it up Friday :D

Re: DW-8000 current street price

There's one for sale on CL in San Diego asking $250, but another one is ending on eBay in an hour and is currently at, like, less than $100.

Korg DW-8000 Vs. Roland V-Synth

I can get a DW-8000 for $250 or a V-Synth for $750... but not both :\

What do you think?

(Looking to play experimental music a la Animal Collective as well as house)

Korg Radias-R Vs. Clavia Nord Lead 2x

Both used, both $650.

Looking to make some spacy Animal Collective-esque tunes, maybe modulate voice or an electric guitar.

Thoughts?
