Hello, sorry for my english, i am swiss italian I produce hip hop beats with my akai mpc4000. For recording, i used my mbox and protools, but the sound is different, is not so power, so warm like the sound that mpc offer. I can use some plugins but with not great results.... Is better if i use a multitrack recorder like dps24, korg d3200, ........?? Sorry for my english and thanks!!!!!!!!!
