Affilliate Links help support the site
Its a first for us, weâ€™re hooking up with our friends over at MusoTalk.de
, a German language video site â€“ you may know of Noneric
whoâ€™s a regular guest on our podcasts
, to bring you this overview of the latest Akai flagship MPC device, the MPC5000.
Launched at this year's Winter NAMM, it builds on the legacy of the MPC2500 adding 8 audio tracks and an 8-voice analog synthesizer. There is more besides, but I'll let Noneric from MusoTalk tell you more....
It's worth noting that this MPC does have certain limitations - the main one being the maximum sample rate and bit-depth seems to be stuck in the last century at 16Bit and 44.1kHz, and the maximum RAM is a measly 192MB. However, many people just cant get enough of the MPC way of working so may not mind these limitations.
