  1. My MPD18 at the moment. It adds another feeling to producing. Samples and drums just don’t feel right being triggered by keyboard/midi keyboard anymore.

  2. MY Ibanez AS 120 Guitar & Zt lunchBox
    Amp… listen to Wah Wah waston ,Curtis mayfield and Muddy Waters man the put
    the funk in the shit thats why i like
    my Guitar….

  3. MY MPD 26. I DONT EVEN USE MY MIDI KEYBOARD MUCH ANYMORE UNLESS I NEED A BRIGHT SOUND FOR A MELODY BUT OTHER THEN THAT IT’S THE MPD

  4. Reason 6 because I know it better than anything else out there. I also have a love for the Ensoniq EPS classic

  5. Although I love the seamless workflow of my Maschine, I can’t deny or let go of my love for the gritty rawness of my MPC’s. Draw.

  6. mpc 2kxl,motif xs rack,pro tools, and a whole bunch of mpc sounds loops and samples. hardware for me!.. i still cant get the feel for software beat making. dont get me wrong,some of yall are making some bangin’ ass beat from software,but i still cant get the groove of putting a beat together with only software. if you know of any software that is really similar to sequencing like an mpc? let your boy know.. maybe a midi keyboard with pads and sequencer and it all tracks out into pro tools one channel at a time..

  7. My MPC 2000xl. Over time I’ve put a CF card reader in it, upgraded the pads, bought black pads for it and most recently the 8 outs option. I’ll never sell it. The drums are just so much crunchier and more punchy than with software (for me.)

  8. MPD 32 is my baby..I had it modded and completely mapped to make it do whatever I want/need it to.
