News from Southern-Lofi

  1. Absolutely loved it. Thank you for posting. What parts of the track did you use the Air Flavor Pro? I am a newbie, so forgive me if my question is a little ignorant. Blessings!

  2. Thanks!! I used it on the main sample (turns on a couple seconds into the video) and also on the drum channel for extra grit & character

  3. I once heard directly from DJ Scratch that he produced all the beats, did all the scratches and mixed RZA's "Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu" all in the MPC X.

  4. Loved it. I am a newbie, so forgive the question: In the beginning, when you have that vocal sample playing, did you place a high pass filter on it, because it seems all you can hear is the vocal part. Also, once the vocal part came back in (I assume it would be the chorus/hook section), did you also place a high-pass filter on the vocals and simply layer them on top of the existing sample/melody? Thank you kindly. Blessings!

  5. It's great. Had it for a 3 months now. I barely touch the features as I just load up sounds and make beats on it.

  6. Thank you so much. Is it good for chopping samples? I will be 100% sample based, primarily sampling from YouTube. Can you share your experience with sampling and chopping samples? Thank you.

  7. It is excellent for that. Once the sample is in the mpc you can chop it up very easily and manipulate it as needed.

  8. Can you provide me with any input as to your progress and experience? Is there a big learning curve? Is the MPC Software easy to learn? I am a newbie wanting to get into boom bap style of hip hop production and I don't bring any MPC experience with me at all. I will be 100% sample based and will mainly be sampling and chopping. I thought about the MPC One, but since this will only be a hobby for me, I thought that the MPC Studio MK2 will be all I need to accomplish this. I appreciate any input you can share. Thank you.

  9. I have no prior Mpc experience before my purchase. Starting out was using Reason/Recycle to chop samples and make make beats. Had an Mpd I used with it. Serato Studio is what really sent me to the Mpc Studio. Using a DJM S9 just wasn’t cutting it as far as control over the software. Didn’t want to invest in a standalone because I don’t spend enough time using it. Pretty much had a record sampled, chopped and on the pads in the first half hour out of the box. If you have some software based beat making experience it shouldn’t be a rough start. The manual and videos can fill in the gaps. Akai’s website has videos from setting it up to finishing up. One tip I have is when you sampling a record, on the software it will have a track input 1/2. May need to change to 3/4 or 5/6 etc to have audio coming through. I have it coming through a 2 channel mixer and I have to change to 5/6. Not sure if it’s because of the mixer sending the audio direct over usb(pioneer djm s9) to the software instead of standalone audio interface. Best of luck!

  10. I dig it, brother. Thank you for posting. Blessings to you.

  11. MPC are next level mate. I think they are particularly great for making Boom Bap beats which is perfect for me :)
