Sidebar: I’m definitely considering getting a MPC 4000 now.
I personally haven’t heard anything about new dates I wish I have.
I am curious why you would choose a MPC 4000 over the the MPC X.
As far as features MPC X is lights years ahead of the MPC 4000. I know, I own both plus a MPC 60MKll.
I also had a MPC 2000XL I sold for the MPC 4000 when it was first release and I gave my MPC1000 to my a to good friend to give to his son.
The Aksys software was very limited in features the software did not have the sequencer plus it would crash if you tried to transfer a lot files at one time. I bought the MPC 4000, Z8, Z4 and the DPS24 at the same time which I still owe all. I recommend the MPC X and the MPC X Bible to see how powerful this beast is.
BTW, either MPC is great for stand alone, But if Akai updates the software in stand a lone with 24 tracks of hard disk streaming and the features others have requested on this forum you can record and mix complete songs on the MPC X/Live and call it a day!
