Patrick: "The MPC 5000, that's where you can see our hip-hop roots... It's a great machine. It’s very clean, a bit cleaner than the [MPC] 1000. It sounds great, it's really good."
Dave: "So P samples. When P's not working on demos he samples drum sounds, like when you produce hip-hop (or at least when you produced hip-hop in the 90s, which is how we came into production in the first place)."
Patrick: "This has a built-in phono in so that you don't have to go through a mixer or anything... I think it makes the sound cleaner. The MPC, of course, has a built-in compression, one that it's always had, since the days of the [MPC] 3000."
