Akai Professional MPC1000 overview

  • 1Description

The MPC1000 from Akai is a professional music production workstation with sequencer and sampler capabilities, perfect for mobile applications. Without losing the classic "feel and groove" of Akai's previous MPC models, the MPC1000 offers a 64-track sequencer, 32-voice sampler and 16 velocity and pressure sensitive pads, as well as a CompactFlash card slot and numerous jacks and ports for connectivity.

With intuitive locate and transport controls, along with two Q-Link sliders for real-time tuning, filter cutoff, layer switching, attack, and decay, the MPC1000 is easy to use while still offering a full set of features. Two multi-effects processors and a master output effects processor are provided, as well as multi-mode filters. Footswitch jacks are included for hands-free control, and a USB port allows connection to a Mac or PC for easy transfer of WAV and MIDI files.

The lightweight, compact design is perfect for mobile applications.
MIDI Sequencer
The pattern based and linear 64-track sequencer supports up to 32 MIDI output channels and has a capacity of 100,000 notes.
32-Voice Sampler
The 32-voice drum/phrase sampler records 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV files for CD-quality audio.
16 Pads
The 16 rubber pads are pressure and velocity sensitive for expressive programming. 16 levels of velocity, tuning, filter cutoff, attack, and delay are provided.
4-band EQ and compressor master effects offer chorus, flanger, bit-grunger, phaser, and more.
Expandable Memory
The 16MB of internal memory can be expanded up to 128MB to hold your samples. The CompactFlash slot can accept cards up to 2GB. A 128MB CompactFlash card is supplied with 20MB of preprogrammed sounds and grooves. An optional internal hard drive may also be installed for additional storage.
