Very dope for it's era!
After a long hiatus from all things MPC, I came back after becoming greatly frustrated with Maschine. This was about MPC 1.8 and after I realizing how I missed working with an actual MPC there was no going backward. My Renaissance stays in its original box nowadays since I have my MPC X to work with but every now and then I bring it out for a little fun.
I hate it and love it at the same time.
Its so chucked full of features, and the build quality is great - It FEELS like a MPC. Its nice not having to track my beats to get them in Ableton. But for me its just too big and i miss the ability to work without having it plugged into a computer. Its a lot of wires having to be plugged in for my taste.
If they had added offline-capability and cut away the whole Q-link section on the left, i would be keeping this all the way to the grave.
I am really impressed with the Renaissance. I'm not a native MPC user; so, being able to host everything with Pro Tools or Vienna Ensemble Pro is great. I never have to physically use the MPC if it's not desired. The functionality is extremely versatile!
Next level beat producing, while keeping that old school feel.
From the day i received this, i've been in love with it. The fact that it's a controller, doesn't change how old school you can get with this. Packed with a ton of CLASSIC MPC drum sounds (MPC 2000xl, MPC 5000, Etc.), along with percussive files and FX's make this machine just so much more better. Not only can you use this in the comfort of your own home, but you can also take this with you to shows to wow the crowd. My Ren has seen multiple shows, and each time the crowd ate it up and the excitement of playing live MPC grew. This is what makes me "speak", what makes me get out my beats to the world, and i couldn't ask for anything better.
