Amazing for creativity

I picked up a MPC One because I had been using Reason for a couple of years and was tired of it. I work in IT professionally and I sit in front of a computer the majority of the time. So much so that you get sick of it. Well trying to then come home and get into my hobby of music on another computer was tiresome. I decided to pick up the MPC One so I could use it in standalone mode and I am so happy I did so. Once you learn the workflow it's very easy to get a beat cooking. The device is well made and the pads are the typical top tier Akai drum pads. I particularly like all the shortcut buttons on the One that aren't on the Live or Live II. The Splice integration is top tier and you pretty much have an endless supply of samples you can work with to get the sound you're looking for. You can hook up a turntable to it for sampling, but it needs to be line level input, so if you have a Technics or something with only phono out, you'll need to pick up a phono preamp. Those can be found pretty cheap and they work well. I love my MPC. I mainly use it to make beats for me to scratch over. I've put a few of my beat albums up on Bandcamp and a few people have actually bought them! The fact that someone else respected my music enough to spend their money on it is pretty dope. Akai did a great job with this thing and for me it's the music production device of the decade for sure. 5 stars across the board!!

This thing is dope

I can knock out ideas hella quick with any sound or instrument. You basically can do anything with this thing. Once I set up my samples and I sequence, then I can play my keys right on top of that. The new software is insane!

First MPC

It seems very easy to use. I'm coming from strictly using software, so this was an adjustment. But I feel my creativity has no boundaries when using it.
