Other than that, what do you mean by "MPC?" I Googled that, and the top search responses were:
1. A computer company
2. Monterey Penninsula College
3. Media Player Classic
4. Minor Planet Center
5. Media Player Classic (again) http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=MPC&aq=f&oq=
AKAI MPC , a classic machine. DJ shadow produced "endtroducing" from one of these wee beauties!
I have a few triggers I've built into my drums as well some pads I use along with my acoustic set up. I either trigger amy laptop of direct to a 303. embrace the drum machine. anMPC would be god though.
I have an MPC2000 and love it to death, I am also a hip hop producer/emcee besides playing my drums.... besides you can't sample with a drumset... unless its electronic of course ;-P but to be serious, these machines are beautiful and will never go out of style.
