I know there are some of us rocking old MPC's. For the 500, 1000, 2500 they are all the same pads and gap. I always used the electrical tape method

For father's day (because I'm an awesome dad) I thought " Imma order a few sets of Fat pads.

Besides for looking f*cking awesome, I see no benefit over just electrical taping the original pads. They actually seem just as bad as the originals.

I think I'm going to have to pull them back out to tape the backs. These pads are pure hype, although they look dope as f*ck.

Looks really dope,shame its mostly hype though as you've mentioned Crane.

I've always wanted an MPC of some description ,although I've never gotten around to acquiring a machine.

Been seriously thinking about pushing the boat out and purchasing the MPC X before this years out recently.

Anybody here own/used one ?

Would be interested to know your opinions.

yeah, as public enemy said. "Don't believe the hype". I know sharris said the pads are great and her word is pretty golden so I blew 85 for two sets, not the end of the world, I'll tape the backs up and they will work the same as the modded originals.

I don't have the X but I have the MPC studio black as well as the X's little brother the Live and they all seem to work the same. I am far from fluent in the mpc world, but I can get around, and would say if your willing to dip your toes in, and have the money to spare I think the X will do you well.

In my own solace and quest for inspiration I have been using the Korg ESX. for simple and fun, but I would like to pin down this 1000.

Has anyone tried the fat replacement-pads for SP 404sx/a? Since, the SX has really hard pads I've been sort of tempted.
