the X and Live are not real MPC's imo (only meaning there a bit comprimised compared to earlier versions,more like software).Just sold my Live yesterday and X ;last year.Thats it for me.The 4000,5000 sound huge and hit hard.Proper hardware.Not software with a box built around it.INHO and experience- the X/live all just sums down to the same characterless tone.Its ok but just ok.(Using the OG 2000 i got here things just kinda crack out so i can use less sounds and get more.... )Other than that they are pretty cool.

The 5000 is full metal and bullet proof.The effects and filters/samples have more character (altho same models/engine as X/live) altho you loose some top end.And yeah this machine has quirks) Thats ok with me.
