the 1000 is kind of weird. or just takes some getting use to. i can never seem to create what i want, it always comes out sounding different. but plenty of fun playing around with the time correction and swing.
and the pads do seem a bit stiff but not that bad.

The 1000 is useful for some things but I'd never buy it new. Why spend 1000 dollars when you can save a little longer and get a used 2500? Just my opinion. I'd go for the XL first even.. sure you lose the option of getting JJ OS but at least it's a reliable machine. It saves a lot of frustration I'm sure. I know many people will disagree with me, but whatever.. to each their own. I'm just trying to get a fair warning out to first-time MPC buyers.

amidst, if you haven't already gotten the jjos, another nice feature with jj is the option to replace the click with your own samples, for both the accent and normal clicks. I really hated that standard click, and would always setup my own click track. There are lots of other features but they're escaping me now. Anyhoo, for 30 bucks it's worth it.
