Akai MPC 3000 pros and cons.


  • Professional piece of equipment in every way
  • Well thought out
  • Straightforward sampling
  • No fuss, no hassle sequencing
  • The MPC 60 brought up to date


  • No SMPTE sync as standard
  • Difficult to change the timing of a single event


A drum sampler and powerful sequencer for pro users who can’t be bothered with computers and can live without graphic editing. Akai can leave the MPC 3000 with me as long as they like!
