Jan 13, 2015 · The MPC 1000 was the first MPC created in the Numark-era of the Akai brand (if you ignore the blue ‘special edition’ MPC2000XL and MPC4000 they initiially released). It was basically the first compact MPC, with an operating system much improved over the MPC2000XL, yet a very big step backwards from the OS run by the MPC4000. If you are looking for samples and loops for the AKAI MPC then you should also check out our WAV download packs as this category features many more samples/loops that are compatible with your Akai MPC sampler. If you have any questions about our Akai MPC downloads, then please contact us.
You can add a card reader to it for $5 and bring it's functionality up to most modern machines. As I started to use my 2000xl, I found it was so much better laid out than my MPC 1000. Menu's are easier to find and faster to go through. This machine just feels better than any of then new MPC's. This machine shines in design and simplicity.
