Mpc legacy packs have a shed load of samples.
Also has trap drums and deep house expansions
Plus a few vsti plugins that generate sounds.
Should all be in the downloads
If you have already installed have a look at the buttons around the file browser
Should be one that displays all the expansions content.
Hover the mouse over to see what each button does

Thank you.

The reason im confused is because i downloaded the mpc ren sound bank that came with the "mpc ren". And i could barely find any useful sounds?

Also

Just out of curiosity,
Do you think a DAW like reason would be a good alternative?

Depends what you mean by usable.
Enough one shot drums there for a huge genre choice
For synth sounds your better of with vsti and sequencing your own.
Try plugin boutique for cheap and free vsti.
Plenty of decent synths for free with a bit of searching

What kind of music are you looking to produce.

Re Daws
Reason I found very restrictive
I bought into fl studio 12 years ago.
A very capable program but I don't like the non linear workflow and lack of customisation.

Just moved over to reaper
60quid for a copy with a long free evaluation.

Steeper learning curve but one of the most capable daws I've used


I run mpc as a plugin within reaper and track 16 stereo tracks out to it.



Ignore the sequence. Purely for a demo.

Thanks. ok. so from what you said, what i have understood is...
the mpc renaissance has enough sounds, so if i cant use any i should redownload the mpc ren sound bank?

Also i understand that i should Try plugin boutique for cheap and free vsti.

I want to produce hiphop and latin urban by the way?

If you hear the test tone then it's working

Select a sound in the browser
Click load from the hardware or drag it onto a pad in the software
Hit the pad and hear the sound.
A new project will play no sound until you have samples loaded onto pads or a plugin loaded
Watch the videos ffs.
All the info is there.

I'm out
