The MPC SUCKS DONKEY!
I've been working with this thing since like '98 and Im finally fed up with it. Fed the fuck up. Ive been convincing myself thats it such a great machine, that it makes you make music in constructive and novel ways. But the veil has been drawn. It takes ninety seconds to trim a sound. I have to use a jaz disk. you can only work with 64 pads at a time. you're limited in sample time. the sound quality is shit. you can only make destructive edits. you can never see all your sounds. you can only tweak your sounds in basic ways. clicks appear out of nowhere. you have to keep a book filed with pages just to understand what you have. this is all not a practical way to make music. Im done with hardware samplers. just too much busy work that you have to spend all your time on.
