Akai MPC 1000 - Tutorial Part 1 - Making programs (the easy way) and note repeat - MIDIVERSE TV
Akai MPC 1000 - Tutorial #1 Video - Click Here
Google 'MPC Maid' to download the software that I used in this tutorial video.
Here's a quick tutorial on a much faster way of making drum and sample programs for your Akai MPC sampler. In this example we'll be using the Akai MPC 1000 Sampler/Sequencer and the "MPC Maid" software to create drum programs the easy way. Then I'll also be showing you some very quick and basic drum sequencing tips using the note repeat and note quantization settings.
This software and this sequencing technique will work on both the Akai MPC1000 and the Akai MPC2500. I did not create this "MPC Maid" software, and by no means am I taking credit for doing so. It's just a great piece of free software that allows building programs on the MPC so much easier. Perhaps in a future episode we'll show off some of its other features like sample slicing for example.
This is just the first video in a multiple part series on the classic Akai MPC, so be sure to subscribe so you don't miss the next one. Also check out our last video that demonstrates using the MPC's sequencer to drive external synthesizers.
