The 4K blows the 5K away under the hood all around. Its the only one with a REAL full on sampler in it. Its the MPC sample manglers dream machine. Im still debating whether to go from the MPC Software to a Live or just get one of the 'real' ones. Been steering towards the 5000 this whole time since its basically the exact same thing their software MPC is, but apparently that thing cant reliably do the one job its supposed to, be a stable MIDI clock. Seen plenty of gripes about it at the MPC forums, but then again people are still using them. There was even one literally down the street from me maxed out for $800 or so a few weeks ago. The Z engine in the 4000 though combined with the old Akai's sequencer handy work. Mmmmm.
