The Akai MPC5000 is a drum machine sampler that includes 8-track streaming hard disk recording, a 20-voice, 3-oscillator analog synthesizer with arpeggiator, a sequencing engine with 960 ppq resolution, pad and track muting and mixing, and 64 continuous sample tracks. The Akai workstation even has an effects engine with 4 FX buses and 2 FX per bus.

In addition, the MPC5000 features a 64-voice drum/phrase sampler with 64MB memory - expandable up to 192MB. The display is twice the size of the MPC2500 and MPC1000 so waveforms appear crystal-clear. Integrated Chop Shop 2.0 now supports stereo chops and Patched Phrases. The MPC5000 is also the first MPC to include Random and Cycle sample playback in addition to velocity Zone Play. A turntable preamp is also included.

The MPC5000's virtual analog synth eliminates the need for external analog synth modules or buggy software based synthesizers. The 8-track direct to disk recorder lets you produce your whole song in the MPC and then mix it down with the internal sequenced programs and any input thru material. Add the optional CD/DVD drive and you can then burn an audio or data CD or your mix. Over 650MB of premium-quality sounds from Loopmasters are included to get you up and running with pro-quality production in seconds.

MPC 5000

By David Moore AKA Piratebrain

from Austin Texas

I Got my MPC 5000 from the anderson lane Austin texas store. I must say I love this machine. I also use digital performer on Mac computor, but I love the timeing of the mpc and to be able to record vocals and guitar with streaming audio is awsome. I used to have an MPC 2000 but i sold it years back. I am keeping this model though because I can work in a hotel room, at home or in a studio. I think if you get one you should max it out with ram and the cd/dvd drive. also I discovered that you can use a much larger than the recomended 2 gig compact flash card(a plus). also My sales rep David Lenard is the bomb he helped me out alot, he got answers to all of my questions. all of thier management helped to make my purchase a great experience. thanks a bunch austin GC. Hopefully I will be coming out with more house mixes soon!

This piece of equipment is impeccable. In my opinion, This is the best MPC ever made. Akai continues to step their game up. I am a huge fan of the MPC 2500 and the 5000 blows it out by a long shot. I has so many new features. I spent my college tuition on this piece of equipment, So that should be enough proof.
