killedaway wrote:i find myself once again looking at the MPC1000. my music is loop/pattern-based, but sometimes i want a little more flexibility than that offered by my 'tribes. the sequencer in my Fantom makes me want to die, but i did like its sample storage, which was large enough to store some really long samples and even vocals, which my ESX cannot do (at least, not without filling up too fast).
so i've got a few questions:
how is the sequencer in the MPC1000? is it "fast"? intuitive? i love tapping record on my EMX and just gunning in a pattern. if i hate it, i tap Clear Part, and try again. no menus, no hassles. is the MPC the same way, at least in terms of ease-of-use?
how does it handle sequencing other gear? is anyone using this as their "linchpin", sending sequences to their synths and other gear, too?
how is it for remixing? composing complete tracks consisting of samples (including vocals)?
how's the clock's timing?
thanks for any help you folks can offer.

i don't wanna say Industrial, but... i don't know how to finish that sentence. i guess that's the closest description. some of what i want to start making is linear, so i'd like the MPC to help in that arena as well -- to sequence some synth/orchestral kinda stuff.
what style do you compose on yours, RTF?
