You could obviously tell that the equipment is Akai's Professional MPC 4000 because you could see the name on the equipment itself. And you know it's "Prefuse73" because he has his tag/logo on the MPC 4000. By the looks of the photo, I think he uses the MPC 4000 in his studio. - the image was uploaded in 2013.more
This is a Really great MPC, it gives you the Big drum machiine feel, with a vintage/digital sound. The love child of all of the previous MPC's of it's time. I got it into it on the word of Dr. Dre boasting so hard about the sound and how great the MPC 3000 was. So I figured lets jump into the future with new digital and built on sampling direct from CD capabilities. This is an AWESOME piece with adat in/out as well as Analog. Pure Heaven. If you Mod it you can also have a Solid State drive put in. This is a Classic sampling Drum Machine with great flexibility. I even play my sampled piano sounds from a keyboard controller while recording and playing back drum machine sounds! Now how great is that... in true CD full .WAV quality and not mp3 sounds. Go Big or Go home...lol.
