It aint even that. It's like this. How are you gonna complain about the girl with titties when your girl is flat chested.

If I may use such an analogy.

mV 8000 vs mpc 4000

Started making beats about 6 years ago got the privilege to start off with an MPC 4000.
After I sold it bought an MPC 1000 but it wasn’t the same saved up for anther MPC 4000 nothing compared but could afford the 1400$ so I sold it again. Hey I need the money….
Ok now I wanted to make music / beats again.. but no way I have 1400$ for a mpc4000 and I don’t recommend the 1000……

SO after reading a bunch of reviews …I found a MV 8000 for 375$ had to buy it .. 1000$ less then the 4000 …….how is it???????

I love it took me about 1month to learn and made a few beats already I posted one on my my space so yall can compare it the MPC4000 I also have MPC beats…the mV8000 makes it real easy to sample but I sampled from the TV and it’s a bit static ie but the MV 800sounds me will post more beats as I make them… don’t believe the bad post on MVs ……….1000$ cheaper is way worth it..

save yourself about 600$ and buy the MV .. I have used the MPC 4000 for 4 years and MPC 1000 for 1 year.. ..I bought the MV for 400$ and I have only had it for 4months and my beats are the beast ever ..don't believe me... listen for Buy beats Online - it wasn't hard to learn either..

Lots of core features lacking... And the editing just blows... Fine if you just want a box to pound out beats on, tho. (And if you have no experience with the others --ahem-- you won't know the difference.)
I have used every MPC at one time or another and my 1000 with jj os2xl is the best in my opinion, at least for my needs! with the plain Akai os it is not that great but with it.......this thing is a beast!
