  • Hey Matt,

    Thanks for posting!

    Here's the breakdown of instruments included in that MPC expansion:



    The demonstration of this expansion will give an idea of the overall flavor of these instruments:

    Of course, hearing is believing so to speak, so the best way to get an idea of all the included sounds really is to use them.

    I hope that helps!

  • Thank you!! Is there a expansion pack that has an upright bass? I see there is a new Mpc instrument expansion coming soon, will there be one on it?

  • I'm not sure if an upright bass instrument will be included in any upcoming instrument expansions but you could make your own pretty easily!

    The MPC Software is a sampler so why not try sampling an upright bass and make your own instrument with a Keygroup program? I'm sure there are some upright bass sound samples online that you could download and throw into a Keygroup and voila - now you're walking on the track.

    If you have a VST instrument that can produce an upright bass sound, you could use that directly in the software with a Plugin program instead of sampling. If you want to use the sounds from the VST with the MPC Live or X in standalone, there is a clever method of converting a VST's audio into a Keygroup hosted at MPC Tutor. Check this out:

    I hope that helps you!
