MPC DRUM SYNTH - HIPHOP DRUM SET (104BPM)

Hello Akai Pro forum.
• •
We took the internal MPC Tube Synth and made a standalone MPC Drum Synth.
Having a background in using synth drums like the Waldorf Attack did help much.

  • Interesting, and no dis-respect to the work you put in - but how can this be more 'playable' on the MPC?

    Since each sound is on it's own plugin only one can be actively played at a time... this might be seen as the failing of the MIDI implementation of the current MPC.

    I suppose that the resultant sounds could be sampled/flattened as a keygroup, noting that your sample sequence uses different notes in various programs. I think (though honestly I'm a complete newbie) that the sounds for each could be grouped into multiple splits on the keyboard, allowing for some variation when playing.

    What would others recommend in terms of playing these? A 'blank' first bank of pads with 'simultaneous play' to the desired sound...?

    The other question I have is whether a flattened sound (sample) is more memory/cpu intensive on the hardware, compared to spinning up 7 instances of the soft synth.

    Cheers,
    Simon.

  • Hi Burner Phone, thanks for asking. Indeed it would be great to have all sounds on
    the pads. This will be possible if a future update (by Akai) provides the options for
    keyboard zones. Until then you have different instruments, for each single drum instrument. We could have waited for a software/firmware update, but we didn't.

    What you have is drum synthesis with much sound dynamic which can be sampled internally by the MPC Autoampler. Having samples freezes the sound and you can't
    change much (..except fx?). If you've found your final MPC drum synth sound then
    flattening and sampling makes space for other instruments. It would be like having
    an external drum synth attached to your MPC, from which you sampe the sounds.
    Sampling internally is routed digitally, no analog digital conversion has to be done.

    Having 7 instances of the drum synth, actually maxes out what the MPC standalone
    hardware can do (it doesn't do 8 instances). That's why we've created a 6 instances drum synth, which has one instrument left for at least a bass synth. Originally we did
    a DrumSynth with 10 instances via the MPC software, which then just got truncated
    on the MPC-X when loading the project. The MPC standalone hardware just leaves
    out any instance above 7, which seems to be a CPU saver. Running 6 instances on
    the DrumSynth eats 20% CPU power when sounds get triggered by a sequence.
    Since it's all internal synthesis it won''t eat your MPC RAM, that's for sure :-)

    Anyway, the sound dynamic that the MPC drum synth creates, speaks for itself. We
    will do an update of the HipHop Set which includes Q-Links settings for decay and
    filter. Then this MPC drum synth KIT has some knobs to turn, much in the way an
    analog Roland TR-808 is able to do. Decay on the BassDrum and loooow you go.

    Regards. Have Fun!
