I believe that that's the first MPC series that was made in China.
But, prototypes do not have to be labeled with a country of origin.



wasn't there a thread talking about that and some people posted pictures of theirs with made in japan written on them?

No, I don't think I've seen it, and I'd remember if I saw one.
But, if any of you own a made in Japan MPC2000 classic, please post here!

Since I'm now a multi millionaire from weed stocks, I decided to buy the MPC 2000 prototype. You would not believe it but the sequencer on this is way more soulful and it makes all my rare oop mp3 samples sound super analog. I already opened a new soundcloud account and got 3 placements on Young Trill Trap God's new album. Insane.

@tapedeck clearly you ain't following the market.

I'll have you know that since striking it rich, I threw out all my monoprice snake cables and opted to use pure gold strand braided ones from now on. The process was a bit involved as I brought a 20 pound of gold coil strand to this African braid spot I frequent when I get my hair done, to braid the strand for me. I found that these new cables I'm using have more soul to them and better knock in the low end.

To cover all areas of the frequency spectrum, I went and hired this mountaineer dude that had a knack for paracord braiding to do the same. Interestingly enough, the cables he braided lacked low end but had more sound stage and had wider mids and highs that were a bit too high for my liking. No worry though, I just dialed it down a couple db on the SSL at 10k and all is good now.

Also, all the cables are sleeved in the seal foreskin which has no bearing on the sound but more to do with showing off as I have such an excess of money now.

I'm thinking of hiring a mathematician to braid some midi cables for me as I heard this helps tighten up midi timing and overall latency.

Seal foreskin....
You’re really balling out of control.

If your state legalized weed be one of the first to open up shop if you can. You will literally have wheelbarrows of cash.

The only millionaires I know (my age) both made it off weed in Cali and Colorado. One is a high school drop out.

I know and everything I do is a huge event. So much so all my waveforms have no dynamics and look like one big line.

I'm in Canada, weed is actually being legalized next week, October 17.

Cool if your a smoker, either way I believe in personal freedoms anyway.

Damn, here I was thinking my wavs sounded like **** because I’m an idiot.

Just playing been working on my mixing skills but there’s a lot to learn and factors that come into play.

Back to the topic: I really preferred every other Mpc I’ve ever touched to the og 2000. Doesn’t seem worth it at all. Even if it does have a more “3000” style sound...
