I watched it as well. I was a bit confused why he was making this video when he already did one on the same topic a month before.

He did however say in the previous video that part of the reason why he got an XL is for the views.


Haven’t seen this one, but he responded to a reaction of mine on another video that put me off a bit.

Someone was asking what would be a great non X/Live/One MPC to buy coming from Mashine. I responded with the advise that a JJOS machine is probably the best one to buy. Marlow shot down my reaction and said the guy would be better off buying a 2kxl. :hmmm:

A JJOS machine would be a great buy, that OS really shows how with continued development these machines can get better. With the amount of MPC out in the world and how every company is trying to be environmental friendly. It would make sense to charge and continue to update the older models. Not to mention supply OEM parts.

I am thinking about getting a 4000. I have the 2000XL and was torn between the MPC One or the 4000. I feel that the 4000 is just increasing in value and if I wait two years from now, it's only going to get more expensive. I am torn between the two.

I have a 2kxl, 4K and X.

2 of those machines don’t even get touched anymore.

1 of them has currently been working exceptionally well for me.
Excluding a few non-brick wall bugs, I love the machine.
Pad banging exercises are going well.

Yeah, given very specific tastes/requirements… the new MPCs knock most of the feature needs out of the park. For most people it feels like they focus on the nit issues… which understandably may not be nits for them, and real issues… but I think for the vast majority of people looking to step into the MPC line, there has never been a better time than now to hop on board and check out what all the fuss is about with the current product line. The X/Live definitely earn their keep, but the One is just such a steal at the $600-$700 mark it is crazy.

Good video.

I do not think I could return to a vintage MPC at this point. However, I sometimes wish I had purchased a MPC X over the MPC Live II.
