Akai MPC Studio Beat Making Tutorial: Week 5 – Reverse Engineering a Beat.
In this video I reverse engineer a beat I had made. I wish I had recorded the actual production process, but this is the next best thing.
I had an Akai MPC 2000 back in 1997, but in 2003/4 I stopped sampling and started using Reason / Cubase to make beats.
In 2007 I stopped producing altogether.
Now in October 2016, almost 10 years later, I’ve just got myself an Akai MPC Studio Black, and started making sample based beats again.
Follow my journey as I share my learning.

About the Akai MPC:
The MPC Studio Black is a fresh take on the top-selling original, MPC Studio.
Akai made the Studio look cooler than ever by introducing a sleek and stylish black brushed-aluminum body.
To elevate the parameter editing experience, the master encoder wheel as well as the Q-Link knobs have been raised and made larger.
The 16 MPC pads are now thicker and more responsive, inspiring greater expression in performance and programming.
Legendary MPC Production on Your PC or Mac
The Studio Black fuses legendary MPC production with the processing power of your computer.
Its compact design is a minuscule 1.5” thin.
Weighing in at less than two pounds, the Studio Black easily fits into a laptop bag or backpack.
Its USB-powered and includes the powerful MPC Software for Mac and PC with 128-track sequencing capability.
Equipped with the legendary MPC workflow, MPC Swing, plus powerful features such as “lazy” chop, you’ll be producing great music in no time.
A large LCD screen (360 x 96 dot graphic LCD) allows you to make tracks without having to look at your computer.
Included MPC Software
Featuring 128-track sequencing capability and up to eight pad banks–more than any other MPC ever—the included MPC Software delivers a massive 7GB+ sound library, including all the sounds of the classic MPC3000 and including 2 MPC Expansions.
Instant mapping and real-time adjustment of VST plugins lets you record each track as an MPC drum program, Keygroup program, or VST/AU plugin.
Use MPC Software alone as your main creation tool or seamlessly call it up in your favorite DAW as a VST, RTAS, or AU plugin.
