It gave me life
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I had the original MPC 3000 Rodger Linn Limited Edition. After getting everything hooked up. Even thou I haven't touch a MPC in 10 years. It felt like I never stop using it. I was very easy to get around the functions of the MPC.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The quality is very very nice!!! Akai designed this system to work with all kinds of music.
Ease of Use
How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player?
The system is very friendly. Who ever is using this system will find it very easy to use. That's what you will love about the MPC. You will fall in love with the MPC because it's so easy to use. I haven't call the AKAI Tech Support to help because it's that easy.
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The Features are Amazing. I wasn't expecting for the MPC and LOGIC X to work so well together. I like how the MPC and the Logic Pro can learn each other. Which makes recording easier and using the MPC as a midi controller.
Sound
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
The Quality of is like no other Drum machine sequencer out there. You can't compare nothing to it. I gave my Native Instruments "the maschine" to my brother. it wasn't worth selling it.
Feel
How is the feel of the pads and controls? Are the controls laid out well?
The pads feel incredible and he layout is sweet!!!!! I wouldn't change anything about the MPC
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I robbed you guys and if you want to spend your money on something other than the MPC. Your not thinking clearly!
