Product FAQs

What are multisamples and what can I do with them?

Multisamples involve sampling many notes from an instrument and mapping out these notes into MPC programs - the result is a very realistic recreation of the original instrument mapped out across the pads in your MPC. You can then create your own realistic loops, riffs and solos using only your MPC.

How easy is it to use multisamples in my MPC?

Very easy. Just load up a mulisample program just like you would any other program. Now just bash the pads and create your own unique loops and solos! And if you prefer playing with a MIDI keyboard, no problem - just connect the keyboard MIDI out to the MPC MIDI in and play the keyboard keys - your realistic multisample sounds will be output from your MPC (we've even re-ordered all pads so they match standard chromatic order on keyboards).

Will multisamples work in my sampler?

Our multisamples work with the following MPC models: MPC Software, MPC5000, MPC1000/2500/500/JJOS, MPC4000, MPC2000/XL. Due to the memory requirements of some programs use, we'd recommend you have at least 16MB of RAM to get the best out of them.

Additionally owners of newer MPCs such as the MPC Software and MPC5000 will have more advanced features available in the multisample programs.

Are your instrument multisamples looped?

Yes many are but only where it's appropriate to loop the samples to allow infinite sustain - typically this would be for synth and string instruments. For most other instruments, such as guitar, bass and piano we have sampled the sounds to their natural decay. 

Do you add effects to your multisamples?

Definitely not. It is important that professional multisamples are presented 'dry', with no delay effects (e.g. reverb, chorus, delay etc). This ensures you have maximum control over the multsamples, leaving you to add whatever effects you wish to your multisample performances.
