It's strange that people claim they can hear a difference, but when I hear their mixes. I sit back and wonder what are they actually hearing. It's like they can hear, the difference between a MPC 60 and 3000 but they can't hear, their kick drum clashing with their bassline. :lol:

the 60 does have a difference that you start to sort of notice when making an entire song where you see every edge of the frequency range... it is a very bright machine. It is the sample time limitation that causes you to truncate smaller and fill space in with looping.. various techniques to get around that and when all of that is put together.... there is the real difference. The differences in sound between different models never really makes a difference most of the time because you start a beat on one and you hear that beat on that model... you don't sit there feeling guilty because you didn't make it on a different MPC model.
