Hi guys

So there is probably a very obvious answer to this but here goes anyway

I make a lot of dub reggae and experimental down tempo stuff and run a pretty much all analogue set up

Im looking at getting an MPC1000 just for a bit of new kit and was wondering if its possible to run it through a tape machine and back in to the desk in order to get a decent tape delay style effect or if it has a decent delay built in or if its easy enough to hook it up to a tape delay style guitar pedal

thanks in advance and sorry for being an idiot

You can route 1k main outs dual mono 1/4 line level wherever you want.
1k has decent effects but outboard gear is usually more specialized and better quality.
1k doesn't have a return channel.
You'd have to look in the manual to see what effects are in the machine.

You'll want to decide if you want to spend a lot of money up front to emulate tape such as Strymon pedals or chase bliss pedals, or if you're looking to spend more over time on maintaining an older tape machine and buying new tapes.

There is a world out there of things to learn and mess around with though!
