The MPC500 is one of the best sampling/MIDI Sequencers for under $500 right now. We like it a lot it's so small but has a big sound and it's just like the mpc1000 or mpc2500 it just lacks the extras you get with those two powerhouse mpc's This video series starts off with the back where we explain how to setup your mpc500, and what cables you'll need. Then we cover the front and teach you how all the buttons, knobs,and Q-link slider work so you can understand how the software works. Next we start to sample and show you the best way to get your samples recorded and how to edit them so they sound just right. Now it's time to place the samples in a program so we can play them on a pad then we edit the program allowing us to change volume, velocity, pitch, and other parameters of our samples. Next we need to put them in a sequence so we can make a track and edit that sequence. We even use our Keyboard player Dave to show you how to record and save midi data and edit it. We explain every feature on the mpc500 to give all the skills you need for your project.
