Aight. I need to have this quesion answerd. Im looking at the MPC 500 and 1000. One is $700 and the other is $1000. But when i look at all the specifications. I cant really find anything that accounts for the 300 dollar increase in price. Can someone help me understand this price difference. Sorry if this is a stupid question. pz

Everything with the mark is different.

if you got money for the 1k, don't even consider buying the 500 unless portability is a key factor for you. with the 1k, you got the big screen that allow you to deal with the samples with waveform instead of numbers with the 500, you got 6 audio out, you can add a hard drive, you got 3 types of filter.

but you DON T HAVE to buy a mpc, if you like to deal with pads, you can buy the sp 404 which is a very good machine. There is also roland mc 808 and mc 909.
if you don't want to put that much money in a machine, i suggest the sp404
