Like the title says, I think Amazon Canada might be the only place that has these in stock right now haha, most other business that might are currently under quarantine. So sorry to all you Long and McQuade pre-order people, but as of 3/25/2020 Amazon is shipping units to Canadians who placed pre-orders. Cool!
I'll just say though that this thing is nice. The classic MPC feel is back! My last MPC was the 1000, this has the same solid feel, clicky buttoness,, pads etc. It's a little lighter than expected, but feels solid.
Many years ago, I borrowed my friend's MC-505, and I found it fairly intuitive and inspiring. I longed to get one one day, but when the time came, I could only find an RM1x in my budget. I made some songs on it, but I really didn't enjoy the workflow at all, and had trouble finding sounds I would like. I ended up selling it and stopping electronic-based music production.
I've been listening to a lot of Skinny Puppy again lately, and started looking at some modern options for groovebox-type gear. I looked at a lot of videos and reviews, and nothing really stood out as an all-in-one machine that would do what I want. Someone on reddit suggested the MPC One, which somehow had escaped my research (might be that I didn't want the 4x4 pad style at the time). I started watching videos and was blown away at what I was seeing. It seemed like a literal dream machine - and far cheaper than many other options!
I got the thing and hooked it up and within minutes was figuring out my way around the basics and coming up with some test tracks. Everything works amazingly well, and it's mostly pretty intuitive. But it's also very powerful, and I'm still discovering new things every time I work with it. Sampling in clips from public domain movies, for example, is very easy. Editing and processing the waveforms, assigning to pads, etc. It's all just so easy. The MPC just gets out of the way and lets you create! And it sounds awesome.
I'm not much of a computer guy, so doing everything in standalone was my hope, and the MPC One makes that dream come true. But if you are a computer guy, it allows to export all tracks as individual stems for use in any DAW; further to that, it integrates nicely with computers in general. The latest firmwares also include multi-MIDI so you can connect up a lot of devices and use the MPC as a central hub, in a sense.
I was lucky to get this when it was on sale at $880, but it's easily worth more than that. Akai is doing the world a favour by keeping the price on these devices as low as they do.
