MPC1000 Sounds & Samples

Free MPC1000 sounds and programs for the Akai MPC1000, fully tested to work in both Akai OS and JJOS – these sounds will also load into the MPC2500, 500, 5000 and MPC Renaissance. The MPC 1000 uses standard 16 bit PCM wav files as its native sample format, but also reads the old MPC SND format and MPC program files from legacy MPCs (make sure you have at least Akai OS 2.0 or greater).

These MPC1000 sounds are taken from some of my professional MPC1000 sound packs on my site dedicated to sounds and samples in MPC format, For more free MPC1000 sounds, sign up to my newsletter there and you’ll get a monthly bulletin with free MPC1000 sounds, MPC news and discounted deals on MPC sounds, MPC tutorials and MPC gear.
