Producers… come out to play… =D
Another week for a big sample kit, this one has more than 700 samples. Some of these samples are tagged with AKAI MPC2000XL, so we’re going with that for the title. For those who don’t know, the MPC (short for Music Production Center) and its various models are frequently used samplers/sequencers by producers, especially by the hip-hop producer community. It allows you to play the drum patterns and record them to give your drum patterns a less robotic feel.
While I was at a producer forum in the city a few years back that featured DJ Premier, Evil Dee of Da Beatminerz and DJ Quik, I heard both Premo and Dee (don’t remember if Quik mentioned anything) mentioned how the MPC was a crucial tool in their production processes when they were interviewed by the moderator. I don’t know if the MPC’s came with pre-loaded sounds, but perhaps that is where these sounds come from. A lot of quality drums here; they can be used for a variety of hip-hop styles.
