The most powerful MPC ever takes its rightful position in the Akai Professional product line. Along with the MPC2000XL, and the MFC-equipped Ultimate XL the MPC4000 joins the legendary music production tools of our time. Using the new Z-96 sampling engine the MPC4000 boasts the first full feature sampler ever in an MPC product.
New filtering is provided by way of 6-pole digital dynamic filters which allow realtime control of the cut-off frequency and resonance from the Q-Link knobs or via MIDI control change messages. The new filter design not only supports all filter designs available in the powerful S5000/S6000 and Z4/8 samplers but allows new variations such as the triple filter consisting of three independent 2-pole filter blocks.
Filter modulation is part of the APM (assignable program modulation) matrix which has more than 30 modulation items freely assignable as either source or destination. Furthermore one source can be assigned to multiple destinations and likewise multiple sources can be assigned to one destination just like on a vintage synth matrix patch board.
Improved sequencing functions include 960 ppq resolution, a Song can now be played in Second Sequence function, a sequence data clipboard allows you to create phrase libraries and there is no longer any limitation in using the maximum number of events (300,000) in any one song. As on the legendary MPC60, 4 MIDI outs also come as standard on the MPC4000 enabling 64 MIDI channel operation
The large LCD also allows an unprecedented view of sequence data showing data as a piano roll or as a drum machine 'grid'. Continuous MIDI data can also be shown (and edited) graphically
The MPC4000 comes with 272Mb of onboard RAM as standard in the US and can easily be expanded to a massive 512Mb using readily available 168pin PC100 or PC133 DIMM memory. Memory can be expanded using 64Mb, 128Mb or 256Mb upgrades. Internally the MPC can be fitted with an IDE hard drive.
Fitted with SCSI and USB master ports as standard, it can also be connected to external storage media ie CD-R, HD, Zip, MO, etc., and the USB port can also be used to connect an external USB drive or a keyboard for easier file naming.
