Please understand that the 4K has akai's most powerful sampler EVER inside of it, do the research.
I'm sure people used the synth on the 5000 on records. The Alchemist used the 5000 synth a lot on the Cookbook. There was an interview somewhere where he bigged it up.

I hear you not trying to be pompous but to me built-in synths dont maketh MPC,
its all about the workflow.That's what Nukai did wrong IMHO. Saying that I have an MV8800 which has a built-in AM synth too, I suppose if I did not own other synth I would probably use it.

P.S The MV is for sale, PM me if interested.

+1 from me...I totaly agree though I use differnt hardware, I have the MV 8800 and its only a two osc synth. none the less the option to have and modify a synth in the device really makes a difference in the work flow. also, if you find a synth sound that works better from elsewhere you can always trigger it with the MP/MV sequencer. a trick I use from my MV synth is basicly building the attack of layers(not much delay, sustain, and no release from my envelops in the MV)and from my synths I add other elements to thickin up the sound. turns out to be some great layered synth kicks and basslines and since i can program the sequence that leaves my hands free to tweak peramiters in real time.

So what is the exact problem youve been having with the 5k synth?This is a technical forum and it would be good to clarify facts over fiction.

Im in no need of assistance I have been using hardware since the days of old and continue to do so among the sea of ITB converters. I dont own a 5k why would I down grade? Surely not for a built in synth when I have a room full of real synths. Hope that clears it up.
