Quality of pads! MPC

Hello! I'm interesting in mpc studio and mpc elements. I wanna use it for fingerdrumming, so may question about quality of pads. Are they the same on each device, or for maybe on mpc studio better?

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the post. Good question!

    They are different between the MPC Studio/Renaissance and the MPC Element. The Studio/Renaissance pads are physical a bit thicker or "taller". If I were to offer my own opinion, I'd say they're slighter "firmer".

    However, action/response wise, you wouldn't be restricted by either of them. They're close enough that I would say it is 100% a matter of personal preference with how it feels off your fingers. Of course it may not always be possible, but your best bet is to try and find a demo unit at a music store to give a quick run! :)

    Hope this helps!
