    I ended up getting a 2000xl a while back and it sounds great. I still would like to try Maschine and the new MPC just to hear how they sound by comparison.

    As much as I wanted to love this thing I have to admit its missing something....mainly balls.

  • Quote from voice stealer;61034: “i am tired of hearing people moaning about the cost of music. These tracks took years to write collectively. The price i chose of $1.50 per track is in line with current costs for LOSSLESS formats. i'm sick of seeing one person buy a copy of my music on vinyl, only to then put it up on youtube and for 1500 people to then listen to it for free. Youtube currently pays about $0.0001 per play, then the royalty people like prs/mcps take their cut of that hansome sum. …

  • Yeah, I want to pick this up, but $35 does seem a little steep. Carl what about a EE discount code?

    Quote from elektroakust.;59526: “Not sure if anyone here wants it to be more mainstream. But it would for sure be good to have things back on a little more 'healthy' underground level.” Thanks for the reply, but I guess I'm still not sure why. Is the motivation: music sales, dj bookings, historic preservation, exposing people to something unknown, or are we talking about just being able to go out and have the option of hearing some electro at a club? I guess what I'm trying to get at is that if …

    Just to be clear, what are the motivations for 'pushing' the electro scene more mainstream? What would the be the ideal 'state of electro' in your minds?

  • Carl, you're a legend! Thanks for the heads up, I'll definitely be picking some of these up.

    Quote from Edit Patrol;52452: “soundcloud.com/iampym/sets/tempest-samples/” Yeah he was going to post a sample a day, but then had some issues to fix and stopped posting. So, we're all still waiting to see what it sounds like.

    Quote from ChristianRock;50954: “I have an MPC1000, fully upgraded (max ram + 80gb hd) running JJOS v2. You are right, there's not much difference between the 2500 and the 1000. I'd go for the 1000, especially if you already have a computer (so you wont need the cd burner). I'd really recommend getting rid of the Akai OS immediately and installing (even the free version) of JJOS. It really makes the MPC a much more powerful beast. If you're in the UK and are looking for a 1000, I'm selling mine …

    For you guys that have one, which one do you have and why? I've owned akai samplers, but never an MPC. I was considering getting one, but not sure which one is the best bang for the buck. Would the 1000 do the trick?

    Quote from AITCH-SKI;50816: “At long last, thanks Tech Still not overly keen on the thing though. I'm not convinced by the sounds that I heard. Ping pongy & metallic. Yes I would have to listen to it live but in saying that if I listen to an 808 or a DMX on my laptop BOTH wipe the floor (for me) over that Tempest. Good luck to Rog n Dave though. Maybe they could do some plug ins for it for old skool drum boxes ;)” Based on the initial clips, I agree it does seem to lack the low end balls. I'm ho…

If it's on the net can you please cut & paste coz I am just really interested to find out more about these changes - thanks pal. I was waiting for one of them to make reference to the product being, as you say," a prototype" and some of the sounds were being looked at to hopefully…

I just think it's wrong? It's the equivalent of a salesman selling you a lovely looking new car with all the gadgets, flashing lights…

    I think everyone's hatin on it cause they can't afford it really . Seriously though, if you don't like the sound or look, then ok, I get that. But if you price out a comparable analog drum machine with sequencer or a 6-voice analog synth (which you get both in this), the price isn't much higher than what you'd expect. Jomox 999 - $1800 Top MachineDrum (not analog, but more versatile) - $1700 808 - $2300 Acidlab Miami - $1400 ...and you can't use any of these as a 6 voice analog synth.

    Quote from AITCH-SKI;50686: “. .........."still tweaking"?..... 2K?......Nah, sorry man, for that money there should be no tweaking at all ::)” Not sure I'm following you. You don't think they should take their time building the product until the are happy with the results?
