i've been trying to get my bro up on the idea of us starting our own band.

both of us can play guitars, and bass. i can play the piano/keys, and he's a solid drummer.

but he's not to hot about us using the mpc... to him, all the stuff i have is only good for making "laser music". -his term for electronic music. it doesn't fit into his vision of what jazz, funk, rock, metal, etc should sound like.

i'm gonna have to start laying down some tracks that would fit into the project i had in mind and show him what's up.

to me, using the mpc will help a lot. definately make things go quicker than having to record each part one by one, and then having to bust all kinds of re-edits to experiment w/dfferent arrangements...

haha "laser music" im gonna keep that one

if any of yous dudes never heqard of massive attack, you should be ashamed of yourselfs.
they are heavily mpc based, especially on the amazing album Mezzanine

also the drummer for tom waits uses an mpc as part of his live setup(!)
im not sure to be suprised or completly not suprised by tom waits+mpc

Pink Floyd, surprisingly, used and MPC 60 (or 3000) when they were recording their last album in 1993. It’s also possible they used one on their tours in 1988-1990; at this time they started using sequencers, drum machines, and Akai samplers (s900 to be specific).

He has a lot of stuff on stage, but I usually see a Maschine, not an MPC.

Either way, he's an inspiration. I attempt to make similar music at times. When I 1st heard him, I assumed it was a full blown band. I was shocked to learn how much was programmed/sequenced.
