MPC5000 reviews, bug reports and fellow user support on the most recent standalone, hardware MPC from Akai

What's up everyone, my first time here and first post.

I copped an MPC5000 from a pawnshop for super cheap and I am digging it.

Since the MPC5000 comes with a built-in synth, is it possible to access/control it from an external midi keyboard? I'd like to get a small midi keyboard to go along with it (portable), and possibly record on the sequencer what I play.

Appreciate any help, thanks!

Yeah, I don't see why it wouldn't work. You can trigger samples from a MIDI keyboard. So the synth should work just as well.
