I honestly prefer the smaller, tighter pads on the 1000 (and I've been through a few "MPC"s over the years: 60, 2000, 3000, Linn9000 and MPD16). To me, the 1000 is the perfect unit; small enough to move in & out of the studio without too much hassle & powerful enough (40Gb internal HD, 2Gb CF, 128Mb...

The Audio Track feature (sequence tracks 57 to 64) in the JJ operating system is the best way to use long samples with the MPC1000.

Cheers. Do you happen to know if there a stereo mix output or is there just a mono mix out and single voice outputs like on the II & IIx? I heard someone mention a "stereo mix mod" so am assuming that it wasn't standard. Also, how much ambient noise does the main CPU unit make? Much fan action? I us...

K2500RS gets my vote, it's the only hardware sampler that I kept after selling off all my others: S1000, MPC3000, EIV, EIII (kbd), Studio440, SP1200, EPS, Mirage, SDX. I like it so much that I just bought it a s/h K2600R to keep it company.... well, really got the K26 for Triple Mode, not sampling, ...

Voice architecture of Fairlight Series III?

Are there any Fairlight owners on here that could give me a basic run-through of the Series III *sample* voice architecture? Just a basic overview of what modulation sources & destinations are available (if any). I've read that it has a filter per voice but can't find any detail on whether this is f...

I haven't used VASTprogrammer myself yet but intend to as soon as I'm re-united with my K2500R.

Yes, Program mode is purely for sound creation/modification (oscillator/sample/filter/layer/output/LFO/Envelope parameters etc). Song Mode has two main functions: a) sequencing b) assigning Programs to MIDI channels So, to make a sequenced drum pattern using the K2000 sequencer you'd need to: Go int...

Yes, the K2000 can perform this easily. All you need to do is set the Kurzi to receive MIDI clock and Cubase to send it on the appropriate channel/MIDI output. When you press Play on Cubase the K2000 sequencer should then start in sync. Assign your Program that contains the drum sounds to the Drum C...

I've used a K2500RS in a live situation, it was fine. I used it with a SCSI Zip drive but had back-up Zip discs for the obvious reason :-) The issue of external drives all depends on how much sample data you need for the gig. If you just have a few short samples then you could get away with using fl...

Or you could use a DSHD (high density) diskette as long as you use a piece of tape to cover the hole that is located opposite to the write-protection tab.

if you loved the MPC60 (and were running the 3.1 operating system) then the MPC3000 will be like slipping on a pair of your comfy old slippers but with new soles fitted. The MPC3000 has that immediate "one button - one function" no-hassle layout that the MPC60 had which is what I assume that you mis...
