Akai Professional MPC3000 MIDI Production Center

    But over the years users asked for more: 16-bit stereo sampling, more sample memory, enhanced sound design features, faster sequence processing, enhanced sequence recording and editing features, SCSI, and much more. The MPC3000 fulfills the majority of the requests we received. And in keeping with the MPC60’s tradition of ease of use, we have tried our best to implement these new features in the most intuitive way possible.

    Since the advent of sequencers I have tracked their evolution with great interest and in my view, sequencers have evolved to a point where they are now a legitimate instrument on their own. Many of today’s musicians could be better described as sequencer players than as keyboardists or guitarists. Album credits often read “programming by...” to denote a musician who has used a sequencer to create the backing track for a recording. These new musicians think and compose in terms of total arrangement as opposed to single instruments. In many ways, the sequencer’s panel and display screens are their strings and keys, allowing them to reach heights of creativity never before possible.
